Original Facebook app for N97 Mini.

Original Facebook app for N97 Mini.

I installed an updated Facebook app on my N97 mini, 1.00(5725). Installation went fine but upon starting the app it would go no further than a blue screen with the facebook logo in the center.  I've tried to find the orginal, the one that came installed on the N97 Mini but with no success.  I believe it is version v1.0.(5401). I've only managed to find version 1.00(4667) which doesn't show friends pictures in the news feed nor does it have a 'like this' button.  I've looked on the Ovi Store but it shows no results for Facebook on the N97 mini, which is odd as the handset comes with it pre-installed.!! 

 

Any ideas on how to replace with the version that came installed?

You´re right, that is odd...try looking for the facebook app that is designed for the N97, that sould work as well. And don´t forget to uninstall and reboot before you install it. :smileyhappy:

I hope this solved your problem?

Re: Original Facebook app for N97 Mini.

I'm sorry I forgot to mention that I'd already tried that too. I told the Ovi store, using my PC, that my phone is an N97 and not an N97 mini and got the store to send me the link via text message, however when I go to the link to download using my 97 mini it tells me that it is not compatiable with my handset and wont allow me to download it. 

 

Why are these files not readily available to download? It would be a simple fix if I could just get the correct .sis file to install the version that came with the handset.  Nokia really have made hard work of this.

Re: Original Facebook app for N97 Mini.

Thanks Illinjah for the upload, the file installs and works just fine, just like the 1.0.4667 version did.. But like that version doesn't show friends pics in the news feed nor is there a 'like this' button.  All I want is the version that comes pre-installed on the N97 mini, why is it impossible to find?

Re: Original Facebook app for N97 Mini.

Well I've about given up looking for the the Facebook app that came on my N97 mini, I'm using the one for the N97 too, and yes it does suck.  I guess we'll just have to wait until it or an newer one is released on the Ovi Store.  I still think it's odd that there isn't one on there now and wished I knew why.

Re: Original Facebook app for N97 Mini.

I too suffered with nokia for a very long time but I'm proud that I switched to iPhone. It has the best Facebook app and lots of other cool apps too.

After buying many nokia phones, I felt betrayed due to lack of support from Nokia. The only Nokia phone which I'm still keeping is nokia e71. Rest is all waste of money.

Time to move on guys. You will get no support whatsoever. Believe me as I have been a nokia user for over a decade now.

I had the same problem as well - one minute it was there the next it was gone: replaced with the message: Loading Content.

 

I removed it from the main screen and tried to re-install it through applications but it didn't work either.

 

The Nokia store clowns were absolutely useless (but then again I am in the Middle East and the sales assistants are just there to sell not to know how to work the handsets (like durrr what was i expecting!)

 

I just tried this and it seemed to work:

 

Plug USB into phone and PC

delete FB from mainpage

go online to Ovi store and look for Facebook N97 send it to phone

install it

at the prompt (something like: do you want to override the installed FB) press yes

select Facebook

select download

 

Voila

 

Don't know if using the USB helped... but when i did a search for Facebook for N97 mini nothing came up...

 

At last... FB on the go.

 

I was *THIS* close to burying it in the desert and getting an iphone....

Re: Original Facebook app for N97 Mini.

I just bought the Nokia N97 mini and i went to use the default facebook app on the desktop. I am unable to sign in, it continually gives me, at first my password and account don't match, then when i do it again i get "error incorrect signature". But if i go onto the web browser and go to www.facebook etc... i can sign in that way. How come the shortcut isn't working?

Fix for facebook app N97 mini

Go to Menu - Settings - Application Mgr. - Installed apps. and make sure you uninstall all the entries containing the word "Facebook" (normally you should have two entries: Facebook and Facebook Installer); now restart the phone and install Facebook for Nokia again via Ovi Store, setting your phone as N97 mini in the store first. The description will say its for S60 touch, but ignore this. This resolved my issues with the app, and it's now working fine again.
