If you change your ro.product.model value to MystUL in build.prop Facebook Home starts working again. :-)

That worked for me! The camera and status/photo/location buttons still don't work, but the news feed has finally appeared

Reinstalled it, changed the ro.product.model but it won't let me login, gives me an error "An error occurred. Please try again later". Could this be Facebook's new move in blocking the app?

PS: Tried using both MystUL and Nakata (original) product name, same login error.

I'm getting the same login error - tried on a rooted Xperia T (4.0.4) and a Galaxy Note running 4.1.2 Paranoid Android but both give the same error.

My working process:

installed the 3 apk's earlier, no build.prop modding and no coverfeed

downloaded build.prop editor, changed ro.product.model to MystUL

Rebooted phone

viola!

never reinstalled the apk's, maybe that's the issue?

I lost signal to my phone shortly after altering my build.prop, changing it back had no effect and after multiple reboots I finally reflashed my rom, which successfully returned signal

fair warning

Facebook stopped letting us login in in the 'katana' Facebook app. I don't think there's a workaround for this.

I did test logging in with the play store katana, log in, then dropped the dev APK on top of the play store version in the hope it'd keep the login data and it still failed for me - so I guess you might have to just wait :-)

This method work for me i can login but i have a black screen.

Uninstall katana...download playstore facebook app..login...make a backup via titanium backup...uninstall playstore app...install katana ...restore the backup over it...it says that it doenst work but it does. Than reboot. And voila you have acess to home you see your photo but a black screen.

So now the question is how do we get chat heads working? Paul said he had it working yesterday. I don't really care that my stream is black, the only feature I want to try are the chat heads :-)
