    Hey guys, I'm sure this is annoying by now, but I have been playing with different ROMs, and no matter what I do, the ONLY problem I ever have is not being able to get my Facebook Contacts to Sync. I can't call HTC about it because it's rooted. I don't know if I'm the only one on a rooted phone that can't get HTC Facebook to work properly, but I'm not sure who to talk to. I figured if I was at least running a rooted version of the 2.1 OTA, i'd be able to ask HTC for help.

    This is the only gripe I have with my phone, and i'd really like SOMETHING to fix it. I don't care what ROM, i'd just like to be able to sync my contact pictures like I do oh so very easily in 1.5.

    this is a problem Wally's been having for a while now. I think your phone is trying to tell you to trim your FB friends man. Thats the only constant I see in the equation. The devs will have a ROM out soon for the Official "Official" OTA

    That doesn't make sense though. On 1.5, it works fine. I also got them to swap my phone, so this is a brand new refurb. I seriously want HTC to tell me why only my phone has this problem, apparently.

    Yeah and people didn't complain about the silent phone bug on 1.5 either. 2.1 is hazardous to our poor little eris's health I'm afraid.

    I've been having the same problems too. The thing is though that sometimes it would work randomly (though not very often). I think I've had it sync my facebook contacts maybe 3 times out of the 20+ flashes I've done. I don't have a lot of friends on facebook either, only 90.

    Again, it used to work perfectly on 1.5 :/

    Some roms take over 24 hours to complete. So if you aren't seeing it instantly, dont worry. They'll come. usually... probably... most likely... maybe... meh....

    Also started having the Facebook Sync problem with Tainted Vanilla today...never had it before and I've flashed maybe 4 or 5 of the ROMS...
    Couldn't get it to add Facebook as one of the sync accounts which was also weird...
    Going back to EE2.0 since it's the only other ROM that I like...even though it tends to get laggy for me....
    My $0.02

    Maybe a stupid question as I know W4lly is pretty knowledgeable, but has he tried that update.zip?

    I applied this and it put me in a reboot loop. Just letting you know. Fixed with a nand restore so no biggie.
