Facebook recently updated their Facebook iOS app with a bunch of new features and bug fixes (bringing the iOS Facebook app to version 3.5).
While these additional features and bug fixes which are always appreciated, Facebook has deleted the files that the FaceForward tweak relied on to provide an iPad compatible version of Facebook. If you updated your iOS Facebook application to version 3.5 and miss the iPad compatible version of Facebook that the FaceForward tweak provided, you will be glad to know that you can downgrade the iOS Facebook app to a lower version.
In this How To guide from iJailbreak.com you will learn how to downgrade the iOS Facebook app from version 3.5 to a lower version like 3.4.3.
Note: This How To guide will also work for future versions of the iOS Facebook app and is not only specific to iPad users wanting to user the FaceForward tweak.
Step 1) – The first thing you will need to do is delete the Facebook application from your iDevice and from your iTunes library.
Step 2) – The next thing you will need to do is download an earlier version of the iOS Facebook app. We recommend version 3.4.3 (as it still works with the FaceForward tweak).
Step 3) – Once you have downloaded the version of the iOS Facebook app you require simply double click on the .ipa file and it will be added into your iTunes library. From here simply sync the iOS Facebook app to your iDevice and you have now downgraded the Facebook app to a lower version. The only thing left to do if you wish to enable the iPad compatible version of Facebook is install the FaceForward Cydia tweak (click here for our how to guide).
