Facebook, and Twitter fix for SPB

image

If you are a Windows 6.5.3/SPB 3.5 user, you most have known by now that the twitter, and facebook widgets are not working, well you can try this little fix. Created over at XDA, they fix replaces some network based files with what was from an earlier build of 6.5. This resolves(for me) the facebook, and twitter problem I had that continuously said “Error, cannot connect.

If you use SPB(use it because its easier, and looks good on your device), and also want 6.5.3(its starting to look pretty good), then download the fix cab, and get to using the two popular social networks.

I love using Mobile Shell 3.5.3, and I love using Windows Mobile 6.5.3, but the facebook and twitter widgets would not connect for me. I kept getting the error cannot connect. It was driving me nuts and forcing me to switch to a regular 6.5 rom. I figured out that 28002 was the last 6.5.3 build that these widgets worked on, so I pulled some packages out and added them to the new builds and viola! it worked. I’ve narrowed it down to the webview.dll file. This works fine for me when I cook it in, and I’ve tested the cab a few times. The widgets can connect now, and Internet Explorer doesn’t seem to be affected. I don’t use it all that often so I can’t really say for sure if it makes a huge difference.

The cab is hard-coded to go to the windows directory and cannot be uninstalled. So this is kind of a one-time deal.

This is only a test and will need some feedback from others before we can call this one a sure thing.
