    I found a really good workaround by using facebook jabber transport via hot-chilli.net. You only have to do a few things:

    1. you need a google-account
    2. you need a software like gajim
    3. in gajim:
    a) login to your google-talk account
    b) under action -> services type "jabber.hot-chilli.net"
    c) find the facebook-transport and add it to your google talk
    d) follow the steps and use username@chat.facebook.com to login
    e) now facebook-chat is integrated to your google-chat account, independently from the software. You can verify that by going to your googlemail account. On the left side you will see your google-talk buddies AND your facebook-buddies.
    4. Last step is just to login on google-talk with your palm pre or any other device, that supports google talk.

    This solution is device independent and can be used by any device, that supports the jabber protocol or google-talk.

    Greetings
    gonna set this up when i get home.

    Thanks for this suggestion!

    There's some additional information here: Gtalk and Transports - GoonDroid Wiki
    The notes on Facebook at the bottom of that page are helpful; I also found Psi to be easier to use than Gajim, which hangs for a few seconds every time I do anything.

    I didn't try to rename all the hundreds of my Facebook friends in Psi, since 3/4 of them never use Facebook chat. I just leave Psi running, and when friends log in that I have not renamed, it's easy to Ctrl+I to identify them, then F2 to rename them. The new name and the Jabber email address get stored to Google Contacts, where I use "Find and Merge Duplicates" to combine the Jabber id with their existing contact record.

    The other thing to note is that when you initially log into Gtalk after making this change, your Pre will chug for quite some time (over 30 minutes for me), depending on the size of your Facebook friends list.

    From what i can tell facebook changed something so the IP address will change every so often to a different IP address. I got this from pinging chat.facebook.com and would get a different IP address every so often. Pretty much meaning the chat spoof won't work any more cause it wont go to the right IP.

    Using Gajim was a total disaster for me. Suddenly I have an flood of messages as soon as I log into Google Talk from my Pre - all invites for all 400ish of my friends' randomly numbered Facebook profiles.

    Is there a solution to this without having hundreds of "invites" to answer on Google Talk?

    Everything works! Just one question...

    I have noticed that when logging in, the display pictures are saved on the phone and if the facebook contact is synced with an actual contact, that becomes their picture. If they are not on the next time I log in, that picture gets removed.

    My question is : How do I get that picture to stay as their picture no matter how many times I log off and on?

    this isn't working. I added the transport, but no facebook friends show in my gtalk list. I do however have a contact called facebook.jabber.hot-chilli.net who's status says Resource conflict. Not sure what that is. Did I do something wrong?
    ------------
    update:
    -------------
    Sorry it works. The error means that I had to authorize the transport service by relogging in to FB.

    is this working is webos 2.0?
  17. #717  
    I followed the directs to set up transports and have successfully linked my msn account with gmail. However, when I set up Facebook, it locks my account from a different country, and when I accept it, it now forces me to create a new password. So therefore the Facebook jabber then does not have proper authorization, and there is no way to change the password as far as i can see, without redoing the whole process. Any ideas?
