My Facebook app went funny last night, it wouldn't show my friends pictures and wouldn't come out of refresh. So I logged out, turned off my wireless connection, rebooted my phone, turned on the wireless and tried to log back in. I was met with this error:

Login Failed
Sorry, login failed to reach facebook servers. Please check your network connection or try again later.

LIABILITY LTD.(c)97 VeriSign, OU=VeriSign International Server CA - Class 3, OU="VeriSign, Inc.", O=VeriSign Trust Network) of signing certificate. [javax.net.ssl.SSLHandshakeException])

It is still the same after uninstalling and re-installing the app. :confused:

That sounds as though your phone isn't actually reaching the facebook page but is being redirected somewhere else. Are you sure it's not something to do with your wifi network? Can you get to facebook OK from a laptop?

I'd expect this sort of thing if you were connected to a hotspot without having logged into the hotspot from the phone.

I have the excact same problem... Started yesterday.

Tried 2 differents Wifi's and my 3G connection.
Can't log in with facebook app, Friendcaster etc. Can't sync my facebook contacts. So I removed the sync account, and tried to add it again (Facebook for HTC Sense) But cannot log in there either.

But m.facebook.com in browser is working fine, same on my laptop.

HTC Desire
Revolution Rom 4.0

I have reported this to Facebook. Must be a technical change they made which had an impact on mobile devices connecting, with the exception of browsers.

But the funny part is, it only affected HTC Desire.

My GF with Samsung Galaxy S, and all others that I know, dont have problems...

Found this problem on other forums too, all Desire's :confused:
And one have tried a factory reset.

Facebook was unreachable a couple of days ago. But I got a message saying that they are doing maintenance. When it came back up, all it had me do is log back in. Everything is fine until now.
I wonder if your issues has something to do with the Facebook integrated on Sense. You guys using Sense roms by any chance?


via xda app

Same here since a couple of days. It seems to be a problem on FB side, but in some way related to the software of the phone. I own a Desire with RcmixS Rom Gingerbread. I flashed it with an ICS Rom and it worked after that. Come back to Gingerbread after factory wipe and problem is there again. :(

But still related to Desire, how weird :confused:
Cause on a Samsung Galaxy S, running 2.3 GB, it's working just fine.

Trying logically to understand why this happens only on Desire with gingerbread (since on my with ICS it was working) and looking at the error I thought it could be a problem of certificates that are not up to date, in this case may be only on a specific android distribution like the one we have on Desire... (app developer are maybe forgetting our loved phone since it's getting older) so I tried to understand how to update this certificates and I've finally found that there are some files where they are stored inside a system directory. :p

Here attached you can download a zip with some certificates I found. To install them you have to put the file on the SD, go into recovery mode and then simply choose to install a zip from SD card. Reboot... My FB started working again! I had tried everything before this without success... so maybe this will work for you too.

Let me know! :fingers-crossed:

I BET it's because facebook.com have automatic activated some new security settings, https, and (dont know the english word for it) safe login, where you will receive an sms the first time you log on from a new unit...

I downloaded your zip file, extracted cacerts.bks, cwcerts.zip & otacerts.zip and copied them to my system/etc/security folder, quick restart, and it's WORKING :good:
And I was receiving an sms so that i could log on.

Funny part is, that those certificates looks older than the ones I allready got, but they are a little bit bigger.

But it's working... thank you :laugh:

Contact pictures are back :cool:

I've been having the same problem since Monday, only I don't have a Desire but a Wildfire S. I don't seem to have the system folder on the SD-card nor can I find anywhere else to put the files (I tried putting them in the .android_secure-folder just to try anything and restart but no progress...). Is there perhaps another way to fix this for a Wildfire S? Thank you!

Is your mobile rooted?
Don't think you can do it if it's not rooted :confused:

I've been using the LeeDroid rom, downloaded the facebook app. Been using it for a while until it went funny.

Try the fix with the new certificates files.. It worked for me :laugh:

Yes, having LeeDroid you should already have a cooked recovery... just power off the phone, keep pressed vol - and power... choose recovery with vol buttons and enter with power button. You should be now on you recovery (probably clockworkmod). Choose install zip from SD and select certs.zip you can find on my previous post and that you have to put on your SD. At the end reboot. You should now be able to use FB.

No låvisa, the folder is on the internal memory, but you can't write on it if you are not rooted. You can probably apply the file from the recovery also without root, but you need a cooked recovery. To permanently install the clockworkmod recovery, that is not the stock one and that have more option like the one to install zip, again you would need to be root. Instead I think you can (I've never do it this way, sorry...) install the clockworkmod recovery temporary without root from your stock recovery, just the time to flash my zip.

Here you can find all the available way to install the clockworkmod, look at the update.zip method:

    For anyone who still facing fb problem just extract zip file, copy all the files on security folder and paste to system/etc/security folder on your device. next change permision all files to rw-r--r--
    remember to mount r/o - r/w
    worked like a charm on my flyer ;)

    Well done aank, I have in fact forgotten to say that if you try to copy the files manually it could be necessary to modify the permissions as you have correctly pointed out (I used root explorer for that).
    Thanks for your clarification and for having shared your experience.

    Hope this will also help detslz!
