    I have just installed the new 2.1 on my phone and i am trying to set up my facebook account under the account settings so that way it will sync photos and everything with my contacts. But when ever i click to add the facebook account it just puts me back to the account management screen. Does anyone know how to link the account to the contacts yet?

    Over at SDX there is thought that is due to needing an updated facebook app which isn't out yet.

    I'm not into FB that much but try to go to www.m.facebook.com and see if you can do it there--I never have like the look of the Sprint FB app FWIW

    That's cause they got the Official 2.1... Certain things might not work on the root version....

    That what im thinking as well...i have a hard time believing its having anything to do with the facebook for android app... if 2.1 has built in facebook integration, you shouldnt even need the app.

    Facebook app IS needed for the sync to work. Droid's came with the FB app pre-installed. I downloaded the apk for their version and the sync options do come up... but it will not sync :(

    Tried updating the app with that version on there but it wouldn't update it.

    Ya, I think it might just not work because its a rooted version and there are still some bugs.


    Where did you get the droid version of facebook?

    The droid version might not work... I still say to wait til it's able to run on the rooted version or wait til the Official update....
