    So yesterday after being utterly sick of waiting for Orange to release 2.1, I made the leap and rooted my phone. I found it fairly straight forward and played around with a few ROMs finally finding VillainROM 12 to suit me the best.

    Only problem I've encountered so far, I can't link Facebook profiles to my Google contacts at all. When I'm in the People App, I go over the Sync screen, enter my Facebook username and password to enable it. Then when I go onto a contact, scroll to the Sync screen and press link profile, it says there are no matches and there are no Facebook profiles in the list to link it with. I just get the message "No Matches Found" in the list instead.

    I have tried logging out of Facebook for Sense and logging back in, but its to no avail. The list still stays empty.

    Any ideas as to how I can get it to work? I had all my contacts linked back in 1.5 HTC Sense.

    Leave it for a day and usually they appear. I don't know why, but it seems to work like that for quite a lot of people.

    I updated my HTC Hero the other day and I am having the same problem, any chance someone figured out the reason for this, or perhaps found a solution :D

    while in the people app press the menu button then touch view and then facebook, helps if u also click only contacts with phone numbers or you'll have a load of email contacts

    From the Logcat on ADB I was getting a failure to sync at all. I have switched to FroydVillain 1.1.1 now instead and the Facebook Sync works fine... So not sure whats going on, maybe something to do with VillainROM 12 I guess.

    People are discussing the same problem on Villain's forums, I posted a Log of the error report I was getting when trying to Sync, they seem stumped over there too. There are suggestions that it may be a problem with Facebooks API or an issue with HTC's FB for Sense. All I know is that when I switched to FroydVillain 1.1.1, the issue no longer exists and all my contacts have synced as they should.

    I'm having this problem too, but I'm going to try waiting for a day or so as suggested.

    Do you have to go and link each contact individually on villain 12? Modaco 3.2 (and I assume android 1.5) suggested people from your facebook friends list whose names matched people in your phone contact list; which I thought was a pretty nice feature!

    I upgraded to VR12 on Monday night and couldn't even connect to FB via contacts to sync the contacts. Tried again yesterday with no joy. Just had a go now, and it finally connected and has just sync'd all my contacts....looks like patience is the key :)
