Any plain to realese the facebook new engine as a separate tab any soon ?

Well it is working on the RSSTab (next beta will improve the basics I initially released), since you can choose to use the RSSTab just for facebook, there isnt much need for a separate tab (unless you want to use both rss feeds and fb function separately).

Since you can theme the tab, you can change the colours to make it into a Fb style tab. And I also plan to make it look even more like the FbTab layout eventually.

At some point in the distant future I may create duplicate tabs (i.e so you can install more than one instance of a tab for different uses - RSS news, RSS facebook, RSS podcast, etc) but since I haven't had time to finish and release my current beta work, it is a long way off. For now you can categorise your feeds and switch between/combine them within the tab itself.

It is easy to use the RSS Tab just for facebook if you wish, since you can filter the feeds you have on RSS hub to show any category(s) you define.

There currently is no facebook specific theme for it, and I've yet to make the facebook feeds match the FbTab but it has more information and features than the FbTab anyway (for donate users). Even non-donate users can use facebook's own RSS service, which will give some of the information once you've set it up.

Socialcasting Details:
[INFO/GUIDE] Can you recommend some good RSS feeds? (socialcasting added)
Gives info for adding Facebook, Twitter and Google+ as RSS feeds...

Hi meltwater !

I'm installing the rss tab right now ! I'll give it a try to see how it works before make a donation.
Anyway I have seen that the rss tab have the chance to install a theme, it would be great to have the possibility to install the very same theme of this facebook tab !

I'll answer this in the RSSTab thread since you mention you have similar issues there. Basically you need to ensure the language your phone is set to is supported...more detail in the other thread...

Talking Misaligned FB Icon - Need help to remove
Misaligned FB Icon - Need help to remove.

Deleting ManilaFull.xml will wreck Sense 2.5



HTML Code:
<Page Order="11" Name="facebook.page" PackageName="HTC" Title="[[Facebook]]">
	<ComponentReference Name="page" Mode9Path="HTC\People\facebook.mode9" Component="SummaryAllPage" SmartComponent="true"/>
	<ComponentReference Name="icon_normal" Mode9Path="HTC\Manila\Facebookicon.mode9" Component="Facebook_Off"/>
	<ComponentReference Name="icon_selected" Mode9Path="HTC\Manila\Facebookicon.mode9" Component="Facebook_On"/>
	<ComponentReference Name="icon_preview" Mode9Path="HTC\Manila\Facebookicon.mode9" Component="Facebook_Preview"/>
</Page>
What can I do here? Changing Mode9Path doesn't work.

Thanks

1st check to see if your ROM needs two icons or not, see this section in post 3:
FAQ: My ROM shows double tab icons when selected (typically applies to NRG ROMs)
Chances are you don't need the 2nd icon.

"2nd Deleting ManilaFull.xml will wreck Sense 2.5"...then you have a setup problem, this should NOT be the case.
ManilaFull.xml must be generated by sense when it initialises the first time, otherwise it will not reflect what is installed on the device. It must NOT be cooked in (as it will always be present in flash otherwise) and for sense to work correctly - i.e. allow you to add/change tabs, adjust icons, change language, change widgets etc your setup should be able to generate it and run (note this takes longer than normal the 1st time - 5 to 10 min depending on your device and sometimes in rare cases soft-reset and try again - although that is probably only true when you've are messing with the sense code directly.

reporting back.

I tried deleting 1F04C842_manila but it gives me unauthorized access. even if using TC, Resco, or File Explorer so I had to recook my ROM without that file. After flashing my Fuze (build 23658 with Sense 2.5.2019) it failed to start Sense. I disabled Sense and copied 1F04C842_manila file back to \Windows and deleted ManilaFull.xml then I enabled Sense in Today list but it failed to start Sense again.

So I disabled Sense in Today and deleted ManilaFull.xml and I installed B_L_Group_FixStartManila_2.5.cab and run BL and it properly started the Sense with that overlapping FB Icon again. But I still want to remove that overlapping FB icon so I had to disable Sense, deleted 1F04C842_manila and ManilaFull.xml and started BL and it started Sense now without that overlapped FB icon.

confusing part is, how did it do that? Because if I tried cooking my ROM without that file 1F04C842_manila fails to start Sense

------------ UPDATE -------------

after decompiling BL_Group_FixStartManila.exe. I saw it tries to rewrite 26948339_manila hmmmm.... probably copying and reflashing that file will fix my problem
