No problem at all!

I'm guessing you are rooted?

There is one way to do it but you have to make a complete backup first (nandroid backup). Then open your flashed rom (zip file) with Archive program (dont extract it) and then drop the mod app in it ( it should be in system/app folder) then update the zip and flash the new one. Before doing that, make sure you go settings, application and find facebook and clear cache. when done, flash the rom.

Thanks - waaaaaay over my head though! ;-)

If you can't delete the original Facebook app, install App Delete (must be rootet).

Next, if you can't install this version after deleting the original then do this: (This is my noob-ish way of doing it, and it's easier to understand then adb and stuff like that)

- Install ES File Manager
- Open it and hit "Menu" on your device, press "Settings"
- Scroll down and press "Root options"
- Enable "Root Explorer" and "Mount File System"
- Find the Modern Facebook APK on your SDcard, and Copy it.
- Navigate to internal storage (hit the SDcard icon in the top left)
- Go to System/App and paste the APK there.

Reboot your device. Done.

Damn - not rooted. I did ask earlier in the thread and was told no need to be rooted. Massive thanks for your help - hopefully that will help someone else. x

Shouldn't have changed the facebook logo, imo. It's already 'modern.' Some of it looks really nice, though.

Your opinion is respected and thanks. Well the first time, I just themed the logo to orange,but that was too simple. I just wanted to give it a transition effect (when you click it, it moves). :)

    Facebook app has never been so happy before until it got a new theme. Simple, modern, and eye catching themes that hypnotizes you not quitting the app and make Mark Zuckerberg excited. Well, you have to quit at some point!

    This looks sweet & the orange matches my phone. Is there any reason I can't push it as a system app (which is where my current Facebook.apk is) instead of installing it.

    Thanks man! From my experience, you have to remove the app from system and then push the new one. But becareful, it's kind of tricky, your app might be installed somewhere else too on the system. usually it's like facebook-something-1.apk or facebook-something-2.apk. Make sure you only see one app in system/app. Do make a backup first.

    I bet this mod is going to the same place modded Angry Birds posts went to...

    Don't get me wrong. Great job, but...

    I'm not worried where it goes, blue facebook became boring for me, so I decided to mod it and share it with others. :)
