    I just rooted, deoxed, and themed my X using the 928 black glass method in the sticky.

    Everything went perfectly.

    After the blackglass theme went through, I changed it to the nextheme, and again, everything went perfectly except that the facebook app was still using the blackglass theme.

    Now, I cannot uninstall the facebook app (says "uninstall unsuccessful") and I cannot update in the market (says: "installation unsuccessful"; although it downloads just fine).

    I tried using root explorer to go into systems/apps to delete facebook.apk, which worked, but I still can't install the new facebook from the market.

    Any help?

    I had this happen as well. I used Titanium Back up to delete facebook. Once I did that, I was able to DL a fresh copy from the market

    You can also try clearing the facebook cache which may help

    Using Titanium Backup....

    Go to Backup/Restore
    Press Facebook
    Press Wipe Data

    If you don't have facebook in your list of apps in TiBU since you deleted the .apk, try rebooting, then download facebook from the market.

    This has happened to me and it isn't the only app to do it. I have the following that are trying to download in the Market and anytime I click on them to cancel download I get a Market force close.

    -NYTime for Android
    -Droid X/s Overclock
    -Beautiful Widgets
    -Facebook for Android

    Facebook is not in my TiBu or Application list so I cannot clear the cache or delete it from my phone! Very irritated because my main GMail still is not working since going to ApeX.

    This isn't a cache/data problem, this is a themed app problem. Most themed apps can't be updated through the market unfortunately. Removing the themed app and downloading the new market version is the only way I know of to update. You will lose the theme look of the app though.
