    Just last week, Facebook released version 6.0 of their Facebook application for iOS. The update added several new features; however, the main highlight of the update were the improvements to the built-in Facebook Messenger, which now features Facebook’s Chat Heads feature and Stickers feature.

    Facebook made it known on the day of release that the Chat Heads and Stickers would not be available for everyone upon release; rather, the features would be rolled out for everyone in coming weeks, which was a little bit of a disappointment for some Facebook users.

    The good news is, if you don’t have the feature yet, don’t feel like waiting, and you want to start using the Facebook Chat Heads feature right now, you can check out a new free jailbreak tweak called FB Chat Heads Enabler by iOS developer PoomSmart.

    FB Chat Heads Enabler can enable the Chat Heads feature for your Facebook 6.0 application for iOS if you don’t already have the feature enabled. This gives you a chance to try out Facebook’s new features before they’re ready to release it to you.

    To use FB Chat Heads Enabler, you must have version 6.0 or later of the Facebook application installed on your iOS device. The tweak doesn’t come with any options to configure, and you can start using the Chat Heads in the Facebook application right after you install the tweak. You will find the tweak for free in Cydia’s BigBoss repository!

    Name: FB Chat Heads Enabler
    Price: FREE
    Version: 0.0.1-4
    Requirements: Facebook 6.0 for iOS
    Repo: BigBoss
    Developer: PoomSmart

    Didn't 6.0.2 enable it for everyone?

    No. The feature is being rolled out for everyone over the course of the next several weeks. Versions 6.0.1 and 6.0.2 of the Facebook application have merely included bug fixes for the milestone release (6.0).

    I'm glad this came to light; I thought because I had an older iPhone 3GS (6.1.3) I was screwed out of getting this update. Now, when I do "really" get the update will this have to be uninstalled?
