We reported about an official facebook app that leaked through an update of the facebook app for the iPhone. Now people from iDownloadBlog found a way for everybody with a jailbroken iPad can transform the Facebook for iPhone app into the unreleased iPad version.
This method activates the Facebook app for your iPad by simply downloading an app from Cydia named Faceforward. The app automatically tweaks the code that will unveil the hidden “Official Facebook App for iPad” inside of the free Facebook for iPhone app. It it currently working, and we hope it shouldn’t be blocked soon.
Here are the easy steps to activate the hidden Facebook for iPad:
- Download the Facebook for iPhone app (free from the AppStore)
- Be sure your iPad is jailbroken. Instructions for firmware 4.3.4, 4.3.3 or earlier are here). If you have an iPad 2 and are on 4.3.4 or later, you’re out of luck.
- Open Cydia and search for FaceForward (if it isn’t showing in search results, be sure to hit “refresh” under the changes section)
- Install FaceForward (free) and hit “restart springboard” after it finishes
After following those steps, simply open the Facebook app, and it will be iPad-optimized!
