On Monday we reported that a functional Facebook iPad App had been found hidden inside the iPhone App version, and with some tinkering (unlocking) you could access it.

Well Facebook have partially plugged this hole now and new users can no longer access the App, with existing users (people who already ‘jailbroke’ and logged in) can still access but with reduced functionality.

Marvin Bernal posted a new tweet stating:

According to TechCrunch, the app will still launch for existing users, and some browsing works but features like notifications seem to have been disabled. However the cat is well and truly out of the object carrying device now and Facebook really need to get on and release this thing – plans for an awesome launch event for this particular feature can be shelved.
