Problems with latest Facebook for Andriod App

Anyone else having issues with the latest Facebook For Andriod App (1.1.2)?  I un-installed the one that was on my phone by default and upgrade to the latest.  It works great at first.  But if I turn the phone off and try to access the app again I get "The application res/raw/about.html (process com.facebook.katana) has stopped unexpectedly.  Please try again."  Trying again doesn't help.  If I un-install and re-install the app will work, but only until I shutdown the phone again...

Any ideas?

Is your phone rooted? Might be an apps2sd problem. If so, try moving to system/apps.

Nope, not rooted.  Only thing I've done is download a few apps.

Having the same problem. Since the update to the latest version of the app, the widget on my home screen works for about a day, then becomes unavailable. The app has been replaced with "res/raw/about.html" in my All Programs list, and I get the same aforementioned error when I try to access it. The Facebook logo is also gone and instead there's just a white rectangle.

I've reinstalled the app once, and it worked for a few hours, and then went back to this status.

Any advice?

Just throwing my "me too" in there with everyone else.  This time when I uninstalled and reinstalled I selected that it was "malicious" so that I could send a report.  Not sure if that will help.

Out of curiosity, why use the app at all? I have found the website which you get to on the hero: touch.facebook.com to be more functional than the app. You can place a shortcut to the bookmark on the desktop and you are all set. And it loads faster than the app too.

D'oh!  You're so right!  Problem solved, at least for me!

I like the app for the Facebook widget. It's even faster to update your status using the widget than going thru the browser.

I updated to the latest firmware for the Hero and this issue has gone away.  Everyone else who is having this problem might want to give that a shot.

Settings->About Phone->System Updates

My firmware version is now 1.5 and Software version is now 1.56.651.2
