[UPDATE: It looks like v188.8.131.52 has been made available to some people in App World, though it isn't showing up for me here in Canada. Let us know if it shows up for you, and which carrier/what country you're in!]
Earlier today Facebook was released to members of the Beta Zone, though it seems as though it was pulled shortly afterwards. Before the day’s end, however, it has been leaked and is unofficially available, with an activation key workaround.
Updates I’ve found to be included so far are:
- Slightly increased speed
- A few new options, including update intervals
- Comments load entire thread properly (Not sure if anybody else was having this issue)
- New “Add as Friend” in comments sections
To install the leaked Facebook 184.108.40.206 beta, make sure you have the latest official version of the Facebook application. If you don’t head to blackberry.com/facebook to get it.
Download the leaked Facebook app from the link below from your handset
Once the download finishes and you are asked to reboot your device, DON’T. Instead, press the red End Call key and exit to your homescreen. Launch your existing Facebook application, and accept the terms and conditions
Within Facebook, go Options and select Logout. Close the app, re-launch it, and login in again. Once the application fully loads, reboot your Blackberry. Once it has started up, your Facebook application should be updated to v220.127.116.11 without the need for an activation key!
