    Why does the Facebook sync not work on the latest DC v2.07.2?? Is there something I have to do to get it to work?? Thanks

    You can try this. It works on Fresh and might work on DC too.

    Ya, I've tried that too. When you say it might take a while does that mean like a few weeks before they all sync?

    Lol, no. It shouldn't take a few weeks. The other thing I did was make sure I was on WiFi when I manually sync'd them :)

    I had to do the same thing. I ended up syncing, forgetting about it, and then the next morning all was well.

    Again, I'm running Fresh 2.0d not DC, but after doing my "fix" it sync'd in less than 5-10 minutes.

    To be 100% sure, I removed my FB account, made sure the FB app wasn't installed (the one from the market), rebooted, re-added FB account (HTC Sense One), Added FB App, Sync'd Manually while on WiFi and it worked :)

    Ok, I may give it a try again at night when I am going to bed so I can let it sit.

    Unrelated but...if I make a nandroid of fresh 1.1 with gumbo and take those files off my SD card and try to restore that backup, will it work even thought those files arent on my phone?

    You can take the nandriod backup and store it on your computer for safe keeping if you want. However, you must have it on your SD card in order to restore it.

    So I understand how to delete the Facebook for HTC Sense sync and reload it, etc...but I can't for the life of me get the actual Facebook app off of my phone. I've looked under my market dl's and that just gives me the option to uninstall any updates, and under application manager I can't find anyplace to uninstall it completely. I feel like this is what is keeping my contacts from syncing because the ways listed above haven't done anything! And I'm on Fresh 2.0d, 60664 PRL

    First, I am running Fresh 2.0d, not DC. However, I did not actually remove the app itself. I simply removed my Account, then re-added it (choosing the HTC Sense One) then sync'd.
