XFBSync - Native FB sync for CM10+/AOSP

Simple mod to remove Facebook contact sync restrictions in 4.1+ roms.

This has been tested on CM11 4.4.4 Nightly from 06-19-14, but it should work on older CM/AOSP releases as well. Most OEM builds from HTC, Samsung, LG, Sony, etc don't require this, as they modify the ContactsProvider themselves to allow Facebook syncing.

Install steps:

  • Make sure you have the latest Xposed Framework installed
  • Make sure you enable the app_process from within Xposed Installer and reboot
  • Install XFBSync.apk, just like you would any other apk
  • Enable module in Xposed Installer, but don't reboot/soft-reboot just yet
  1. Open Settings->Accounts. If you have a Facebook account already added, remove it
  2. Click on your Google account, and under its sync preferences, uncheck the Contacts item
  3. Go back to Settings->Apps. Go to the All tab and find Contacts Storage. Clear the data
  4. Now you can soft/hard reboot
  5. When the phone is booted, go back into Settings->Accounts, select your Google account. Re-check your Contacts item
  6. When the Contacts are finished syncing, open the Facebook app and enter your login info
  7. Open Facebook->Settings and scroll all the way down to Sync Contacts
  8. Check either to Sync All, or Sync with Existing Names
  9. Go back to Settings->Accounts, pick your Facebook account
  10. You should see Contacts as an item and it should show the syncing status
  11. When the sync is done, open People and you should see all your FB contacts, with phone numbers and email addresses
