HaxSync - ICS Facebook Sync

    Motorola does it. I still have my bionic and it has all of my facebook friends, their pictures, and their phone numbers and email addresses that they have published. There is a sync option called facebook on that phone.

    Maybe they worked it out with FB in some fashion, whether that was a call/email/form, or maybe lengthy negotiations or a cost.

    How they worked it out, I really don't care. I'm just saying that it's been done, and it's a feature that I used all the time. A good example is when a friend gets a new mobile number, and updates FB. It syncs and if I call them, I would have never known they updated to a new number, but the call would of worked.

    I'm just saying that there's a way, and it's been done.

    How does this compare to Friendcaster's contact syncing?

    Facebook probably added the feature themselves when they were allowed to sync info onto android phones, but since they are blocked by google now the feature is probably also blocked.

    I just wiped my bionic and added the FB sync again... worked perfectly.

    YES! Thank you! I'm going to try this app out shortly.

    Along with allowing the user to modify the sync frequency, how about a "sync over Wifi only" option?

    EDIT: Woops, just downloaded and looked at the options... there is both a sync frequency AND WiFi only. Great app.

    so do you have to use friendcaster or something like that before you can use haxsync?

    Looks like you need to have the official Facebook app loaded.

    Okay well haxsync worked but now i have like multiple contacts of the same person. and i cannot figure out for the life of me how to combine them.

    You can't combine them under options? PITA if it works this way.

    Great, it syncs pictures, gotta love that.

    Still waiting for a method to sync up pics/phone/email. I forgot about a girl in my contacts that I used to rely on prior syncs on many prior phones. Had to log into bookface to just get that phone number, ugh.

    Purchased it, downloaded and installed it, yet it was nowhere to be found on my phone. Not on the homescreens or in the app drawer. So I refunded/uninstalled it so that I could re install it. Now the market wont let me purchase it again. It has a button for install but then tells me "you have not purchased this"

    Yeah I know, so let me purchase it again dummy!!

    I installed HaxSync and it ran, but only half my contacts were synced and the ones that were still had extremely low resolution pictures. How do I get the high res pictures and how do I manually sync the other half of my contacts?

    I am using freindster till the 4.0.3 comes out which is supposed to include a better contact manager for facebook sync and high res pictures.

    I thought this was an issue with android 4.0 which is why we are having to find alternate ways to sync contacts to the people app. If ur bionic was updated to android 4.0, I'm guessing the feature you mention above would no longer work. I read somewhere that an exception was made for fb sync early on and finally closed in 4.0. Some people say its bc of google+, but I think google said its bc they want mobile information where contacts can be imported and exported freely. Facebook only wants one way. They don't want contact info exported or something like that

    You don't understand. On other OEM phones with skins (Sense, Blur, TW) they worked with Facebook to allow them to sync the other info much like how it worked on all Android until GB. Google themselves WILL NOT on any phone they have direct control over. There will not be a fix for that on the GN until Google and Facebook come to terms again.

    ThEoRy36O: do you still experience problems with the latest version? (1.4.4?) If yes, can you send me a log of your syncing process? (recorded via CatLog, available in the market) I'll identify and fix the issue ASAP.

    I think it's that I'm syncing by phone number only. I'm afraid of having to combine duplicate contacts. Is there an easy way of doing this or am I just being a fraidy cat?

    I'm not able to download from the Market -- I get to "preparing" (before "Accept & Buy") and then I get "Error: An error occurred. Please try again." Have rebooted phone, my signal is fine, plenty of space on Nexus, etc. Suggestions?

    I just tried this. This app works PERFECTLY for me. Thanks Mots! I have it syncing only every 7 days, the pics are high res and all of my contacts syncd. I was disappointed at first when I saw that it imported ALL of my FB contacts (rather than the ones only already in my contacts which I am used to) but they are easily hidden by displaying only those contacts in my Google contacts!

    HaxSync is the fix!!
