    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. o_O

    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?

    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?

    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.

    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.

    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.

    My newsfeed doesn't work. Nothing loads on that page. Anyone else having this problem?

    Everything else appears to be working fine though.
