Thanks for the quick reply. I did Uninstall all of it, but I think my phone kept facebook prinstalled or something cause when I tried to reinstall it from playstore it didn't even take a second to install! my device is Redmi Note 10 pro.
If it's global rom, then you are out of luck. You can however install messenger with different package name, but it'll have certain bugs.

I've fixed the issue bro, Appearantly Facebook was active on my second space. Uninstalled it from there it's working great now. Thanks.

I would like to know a fix for this:
I think it has something to do with the apk? This app limits me my 'daily chats' and I would suddenly not be able to chat.
  • I used a dual app (built-in in Phone) and it works fine there (no chat limit).
  • I actually am still able to chat with people, but only through direct/private messages; meaning, only group chats are prevented.
  • I have also tried chatting using PC, it works fine even though I have this message on the android one.

Messenger bug. They introduced it in latest messenger.

Maybe Facebook rate limit issue, not related to the patch.

Anyone have this error and what is the problem? In an attempt to update my messenger it is a question
If your messenger apk is in the same folder as the patcher, then make sure you changed the apk name to Messenger.apk (or write the exact apk name in cmd).

Had run the code and for me open Facebook but it stays all black :(
I don't know what u did wrong, but it's a proper package manager command. Could be facebook bug, try older version.
(anyway, I already applied a hotfix for this problem. so links should open from messenger to facebook app without any problem, this code is for opening links from other apps to facebook (eg, telegram, whatsapp).

Had installed Messenger-v372.0.0.10.112-mrv.apk and the Facebook-v378.0.0.18.112-mrv.apk and now update to the last ones. The problem presists :(

edit: forget, it's something with my phone. It does the same with the apps from playstore. Miui 13 you suck!

ChatHeadEnabler update available
Changelog:
- New bubble option
- Minor optimizations
- Dependency updates
-> Download (v2.4.3)

Many users asked for the bubble feature (those who have chat head normally), so I added an option for it too. Chat head is still its default feature, existing users can simply update as usual and ignore the rest.
For those who want to use bubble:
-> Open Messenger app and go to its setting page.
-> Click on the toggle icon from the top-right corner.
-> Choose bubble option from the pop-up dialog.
[If you want to hide the toggle icon, long press on it and remove.]

    Download: MRVPatchManager-v1.0.1.apk

    Download: MRVPatcher-5.5.1.jar (PC Version Update)

    Features:
    - Direct download from multiple apk servers.
    - Manual option to patch offline apk yourself.
    - Verifies apk signature to ensure its safety.
    - Stores all patched apps internally.
    - Option to select different apk servers.
    - Supported servers: apkmirror, apkcombo, apkpure

    Note: This whole project is now open source. If you were feeling unsafe about it before, now you can relax and use it safely. In order to make sure full safety, the manager verifies any downloaded apps against the official facebook signature, which makes sure you are patching an official app pulled from the playstore. In short, if you are okay with original facebook apps, you should be okay with patched apps. ;p
    You are free to share it however you like, But If you need safety assurance from me, you should share the direct official link. If anyone downloads it from unknown link, I'm not responsible for any risks.

    Can you add option in chat head enabler app, that user can download and install latest version of messenger and facebook when its available? That would be great..
    That's related to the patcher, not the chat head module. Anyway new android patcher app is ready, it will have direct download feature.
    1
    Still the same request before. Messenger, Facebok and Facebook Lite.
    Wait until they release an stable version (1-3 days top).
    everything was working fine, up until a few days ago. for some reason, everytime i minimize a chat head, it takes 1 or 2 secs before i can tap anything else on the screen. could it have something to do with me upgrading to android 12?
    Android 12 issue.

    New -> [Included a Manager to patch apps on your phone]


    A safe and clean way to select ChatHead or Bubble in Facebook Messenger.

    _____________________________________________________

    Are you wondering whether it is safe to use?
    Is it safe to use?
    This whole project is open source. So, yeah, it is safe, just like any other app installed from the playstore.
    [Make sure you installed the MRVPatch Manager from the official github link]

    Is it safe for your Facebook account?
    Absolutely, that's why you need to install ChatHeadEnabler. It enables chathead in a clean way with a method provided by Facebook internally.

    What safety measures are taken for apk files?
    The manager downloads your selected app from various apk servers and verifies it against the original facebook signature, which makes sure you are patching an official app pulled from the playstore. It will prevent you from installing any unsafe apps if the verification process is failed.
    Note: This patch doesn't mess with original messenger code, that means any feature related bug you experience is probably from messenger itself (or maybe from your ROM). You should try different messenger versions in that case.
    If something is wrong with the patch, it will crash or simply chat head will not work.

    Here are some known issues that are not caused by this patch:

    -> Screen freezes for 1-2 seconds whenever interact with chat head?
    This is due to security restriction of A12.
    Solution (PC Required):
    -> Go to "Developer options". (find from Settings)
    -> Enable "USB debugging" option
    -> Enable "USB debugging (Security settings)" option [for MIUI].
    -> Run this adb command from PC:
    Code:
    adb shell settings put global block_untrusted_touches 0

    [If you don't know how to use adb command, you might find a tutorial from xda or youtube]

    -> Facebook links are not opening in facebook app?
    Solution (PC Required):
    -> Go to "Developer options". (find from Settings)

    -> Run this adb command from PC:
