Facebook Blocks Access to ‘Hidden’ iPad App – Jailbreak Tweak Gives it Back

Share This:

Yesterday I posted about the discovery of the Facebook iPad app, hidden right within the code for their iPhone app – and about how you could take some easy steps to start using Facebook for iPad right away.

It seems Facebook was none too pleased with the ‘unofficial’ access to their not-yet-released iPad app, and as of yesterday afternoon they blocked access to those using it. Bummer.

If you’ve got a jailbroken iPad though, there’s a new tweak out – from the excellent jailbreak dev, chpwn – that makes the Facebook iPad app work again. It’s called FaceForward, it’s free, and you can find it in Cydia now.

Happy Outlaw Facebooking. :)
