To start I would like to say search within this forum was down for me, so sorry if this has been answered already.

After the update to 3.11.605.1 I lost my facebook contacts and the HTC Sense Facebook app is not syncing them. I don't get any errors, my contacts for facebook just sit at 0. I am S-Off TWRP stock rooted.

I do use Appops and previously disallowed the Facebook app to touch my location and contact info, but didn't inhibit the HTC sense facebook app. Since then I turned on those capabilities, uninstalled and reinstalled the facebook app, and removed the facebook account from sense and added it back on.

Blink feed updates the news feed just fine, and the calendar syncs birthday and events just fine, but no contacts.

Any ideas???

Thanks in advance.

EDIT: Never mind this eventually did sync on it's own. Or maybe something I did above fixed the issue....

In case it do not sync for anyone than one have to use ubersync from android market to do that. It was removed due to some facebook policy change

Yea, that was off by default, but I turned it on. My contacts still didn't sync until that night/next day.

But it's all good now. thanks for the reply.
