Facebook for Blackberry

Hi there,

I used to have Facebook in my blackberry, I think I upgraded it and stop working. This must have been like 6 months ago or more. I never had the time to see what happened until now. Everytime I want to download the app, I go through all the steps, and start downloading, message appeared saying that the "net_rim_bb_facebook_lib already exists if I want to replace it? I say yes, another message comes saying the module is incompatible, if I want to upgrade anyway, I say yes and fail the download.

Thanks for your help!

Re: Facebook for Blackberry

ON your BlackBerry, go to Options > Advanced > Applications.

Scroll Facebook and delete it (if you find it). At the top right, you might see a drop down menu to "Core" or "ThirdParty", look in each. Delete Facebook.

 

Now, try to download it again either from AppWorld or using your BlackBerry browser to www.blackberry.com/facebook

Re: Facebook for Blackberry

Hi there, 

I couldn't find Facebook in either places you told me to delete it. I can't find Facebook anywhere. I don't know how to find the module they tell me is going to be replaced "net_rim_bb_facebook_lib", 

Do you have any other ideas?

Thanks for your support!

Re: Facebook for Blackberry

I do, but it involves using a separate PC software called BBSAK.. using it you can connect your phone to the PC and delete that one module.

For BBSAK, here is the link: http://bbsak.org/
