so do you know what is the hack to make the iPhone facebook app running on iPad ?
Here you go.
*I can't get iPhone Explorer to run on my Win 7 machine at work so I can't test it.
It doesn't work for me.
I get Facebook to run in its iPad version, but it won't let me log on.
When I deleted, reloaded the iPhone version, it logged in perfectly.
I applied the hack again, it started loading the iPad version, said, "loading news", then BAM, back to the login screen.
It looks like Facebook is trying to stop people from using it.
Does Suckerberg hate the iPad???
Probably. That's why there isn't an iPad app being made.
Same here. I have the iPad version but the login fails "Unable to connect to FB".
Mypad app works great.

hey this Tapatalk app is great
it's working on my ipad2 right now (10 am pst). it wouldn't log in when i first hacked the plist file, but started working a few minutes later.
anyway, it's an ok app. one major annoyance is that there's no way to remove the chat sidebar whether online or offline when in news feed mode and landscape mode. that's the only orientation i ever use. hope a way to remove that sidebar surfaces soon.
update: still working on my ipad2, but it doesn't work on my wife's ipad1.
It's been working for me on my iPad 2 since this morning. Those of you having problems running it. Did you restart your iPad after the iFile change?
I was even loggen in with the iPhone version, then the iPad version loggen me out from FB and can't connect. I guess I'll have to wait for the official release
Update 2 on the install site says it looks like FaceBook has closed the door...
When I first restarted the app after a reboot of iPad, it opened up fine. But when I tried to update most recent, the app logged me out. Now I can't log in unless I click "sign up for Facebook"->"I already have a Facebook account". However it will only display the generic mobile version.
Anyone having any luck logging in? Did Facebook make an update on their end to block logins if they detect the app is running in iPad mode?
Yes, apparently so. 9to5mac reports Facebook blocked it.
What's the big deal about accessing it this way? It's not as if they are going to release an official iPad app anytime soon. This is just as lame as not being able to access the Google+ app on my iPad. I tried doing the workaround for that, but it doesn't work on my Windows PC.
To anyone that got it running (I did), is your text super choppy ie:not smooth?
no longer working for me. but hopefully fb gets their crap together and releases it soon. it's insane that this long into the ipad's life we still don't have a native app.
Yea mine works but I can't scroll through the news feed pretty lame.
iPhone FB app + jailbreak + retinapad + full force
Works pretty decent. I like it better than the 3rd party apps since it seems after I started using those got a lot of spam. Not sure if related or just a coincidence though.
Mine stopped working as well. I really liked it. It was much faster to use then other 3rd party iPad apps.
A tweak is up on Cydia called FaceForward. It reenables Facebook for iPad. Check it out.
I just added it. It's working again. Here is a video how to fix it.
yep, faceforward worked here
Downloaded the face book app for iPhone, done the trick with iflie, installed faceforward and rebooted.... Now have the app working fine
My newsfeed doesn't work. Nothing loads on that page. Anyone else having this problem?
Everything else appears to be working fine though.
