Here is the Facebook App taken from the Motorola Droid GSM Version...not sure of the real name.
Here is the apk... http://www.androidspin.com/downloads...e=Facebook.apk Updated :)
Copy to SD card then do the following


(Original Facebook needs to be uninstalled) You can copy this to your SD and use an APP Such as APPSINSTALLER to install this APK, or do the following...
Windows users (with ADB working)
1. Open a CMD (command promt window)
Type:
- adb remount
- adb shell
- rm /system/app/Facebook.apk
- cd /sdcard

- cp Facebook.apk /system/app

Phone Users:
1. Open a Terminal Window:
2. Type the following:
- su
- mount /system -o remount,rw
- rm /system/app/Facebook.apk
- cd /sdcard
- cp Facebook.apk /system/app

You don't need to reboot... Apps will show up immediately in your menu. (You'll need to put them back on your Home Screen if you had them there though)

You don't really need to push this to the phone. I installed it like any other app through Astro. Also, I only used the app for about a minute and already found something I don't like, your notifications get pulled up through the browser.

For adb you can just use adb install -r <path to>/facebook.apk, no need for complications

File is no longer on rapidshare, can only be downloaded 10 times. Megaupload or Mediafire maybe?

Does anyone else have this odd white block at the top of every page?

I can't imagine that'd be a intended design feature.

I think this version is really good with photos and photo comments.
