    I can understand your frustration with the useless posts, hence my reaction to your post. I did use the search function, but did not find the link you just posted. Thanks for posting it.

    You are correct in there being so many useless posts. When I see one of those, I just ignore it. When someone post something that I can help with then I do so. For me it's better to help someone, even if I've helped a million others with the same issue or whatever the case may be.

    In any case, thanks again for the link. Facebook is now working again and I truly appreciate you taking the time to reply.

    We all have limits to our patience I guess. Spent too much time on the 2.1 update thread trying to help. It would be a full time job, only one out of four posts is substantive making it impossible to read through to find answers to questions. You answer a question and literally three or posts later someone asks the same thing. Maddening. There's no apparent moderation so pretty much any inanity gets through without consequence other than making it difficult for people seeking information.

    I know exactly what you mean. I see posts about several topics on the same thread. People need to stop piggy backing threads and start new posts for different issues. It would definitely make things easier for searching and the threads wont be quite as long.

    The latest version was crashing, but is now working on my OPT but only after I did the following:

    1. Remove the current version
    2. Clear the cache from Recovery
    3. Stop auto-update
    4. Install the version detailed on Page 2 of this thread.
    5. Create the icon.
    5. Start FB, and it's ok.
    6. update from the Play store.
    7. Start FB

    Seems now to work.

    It may be something to do with permissions, as the verison installed from page 2 writes to the media directory, where as I dont think the latest version does unless it detects the previous installation location.

    Just a hunch.

    Hi OPT friends. Upgraded to OS 2.1.0 a couple of days ago and by and large, things seem to be going pretty well. However, now, I cannot access Facebook. I tap the app, FB loads and then closes. Am I alone in this? Others experiencing this? Workarounds available? Thanks.

    I dont know if anyone ever tried. But if you changed any settings for Facebook in Android settings -> App Permission it will lead to Facebook app crash or close by itself. I have Oxygen OS 2.1 and Facebook works flawlessly.
