Default Facebook authorization failing

I am running the latest ICS leak and am rooted. No other modifications.

Once or twice a day I get a notification that FB authorization has failed. I then have to re-login to the FB app. My sync and notification preferences have to be reset and I need to re-authorize Facebook for Sense.

Anybody else seeing this behavior?

Same here. I uninstalled the latest FB update and that seems to have fixed it.


I'm running the first ICS leak and am not rooted.

I have the same issue...

It must of occurred in the last update.

I just uninstalled the facebook updates last night (Tuesday).

So, I guess only time will tell if my issue is corrected.

I'm running the newest ICS leak and I am not rooted either...

How can you uninstall just the last update and not all of them?

I installed the latest Facebook app.

I had this issue a couple of times a day...

But.... I have yet to have it reoccur since Tuesday, July 31.

Seems Facebook corrected it on their end....

Anyone else see this issue go away?

My wife has gotten in once on her DINC4G, and I have gotten once on my Moto Atrix but still happening a couple of times a day on my Rezound.

Now running ICS OTA, rooted and unlocked.
Not as often as before the OTA, but still a couple of times a day.

I once again, have uninstalled the facebook updates...

The last version to work is version 1.8.4 which is available out in the forum if you search for it...

Since installing it a week ago, I have had zero issues with authorization failing.

I uninstalled the update and set the app in Market not to auto update. Hopefully this will help. I still haven't been able to get my FB contact pictures to show up in GO SMS Pro.

and you wont.... unless you use one of the workarounds that are out there... You'll have to search for them, but there are threads that have multiple options.

Either ICS or Facebook has blocked access to facebook contact photos for 3rd party app's... So, it's either facebook or the app's job to update and fix.

So what is the "original state" facebook will restore to when you uninstall updates? (I obviously don't really know how this stuff works) Would it be the version of FB that came with ICS, or originally with my phone, Froyo, or Gingerbread or what???

It would be the version of Facebook that is imbedded in the firmware currently on you phone and is different for each firmware release. Once you went from GB to ICS the firmware was replaced, all old versions of ROM applications were replaced, never to return without going S-OFF and flashing back to an older RUU.

I'm currently running the .2 RUU and with the last update from Facebook, haven't run into the "Fail Authorization" issue....

I did have this issue quite often before, but just uninstalled the updates and all was good.

As for contact images.... Facebook is currently blocking these to 3rd party app's... Until that changes, you will have to use a work-around that you can find already posted...

So the answer is that since I am running ICS it will return to the version that was there when I updated to ICS?

An uninstall of FACEBOOK should return you to version 1.8.3 which worked fine...

Also if you search the forum, you will find version 1.8.4 which also worked fine with ICS....

Again, I am running the leaked ICS 4.03.605.2 RUU and the Facebook version 1.9.9 which for the last 2 weeks has played fine together.... no failed authorization issues at all.

Do not Disable HTC Sense itself, this could cause your device not to boot... disabling Facebook for HTC Sense is a good idea if you don't use any of the Sense FB widgets like FriendStream.

I have been using Facebook for Android v1.9.7 for a while now, never have any problems with it. I am sure a quick Google search can find that version and you should be able to side load it in with no problems, just go to Settings-Security and tick Unknown Sources before trying to install it.

Very strange actually... unless you are running a different launcher (GO Launcher EX, Holo, Nova Launcher, etc). Sense is the Launcher, if you disable it, you should not have a operating device, there would be no launcher for you to interact with.

Interesting item....

Yesterday, after doing a battery pull.... upon boot up of the device, I got the Facebook Failed Authorization notification.... This is the first time I have gotten it since the last update..

I then went into my Accounts & sync settings and noticed that both FACEBOOK and Facebook for HTC Sense were missing....

I added back the Facebook to the Accounts & sync.... but there was no option for Facebook for HTC Sense...

All seems to be working fine... Time will tell

Hmmm. Apparently "HTC Sense" app is NOT the launcher like many other HTC devices, I don't even see the process running on my phone. Oh well, I admit I was wrong. Now I wonder exactly what that apk is for...

EDIT: Actually I was playing with my phone last night and the app is always there, even if disabled it starts and runs, same thing if you go to Settings-Apps-Running and tap Menu and select "Show cached processes", HTC Sense is always there, even if you Force Close it immediately starts again. It is a Cached Background process of "com.htc.launcher", which is the launcher, or the GUI, of the phone, so if it did truly disable your phone would be unusable but it is not truly disabling.

Every time I get this warning it's right after I get logged out of Facebook. When it stays logged in I don't get the warning. I dunno why I keep getting logged out. Knowing how poor the Facebook app has always been it's gotta be something in the development of the app itself.

either way, the disabling of this as well as Facebook for HTC sense fixes the issue with Facebook.

For some reason, I don't have the option to disable sense.the disable button is grey and won't allow me to disable. Any suggestions?

You shouldn't disable Sense... just disable "Facebook for HTC Sense", that alone fixes it for most people. Delete all Facebook accounts, uninstall the Facebook app, disable Facebook for HTC Sense, reinstall the Facebook app and add you contacts back in via that. Takes care of the issue for most people.
