These are instructions on how to enable system-wide Facebook Chat Heads on iOS using MessageBox by Adam Bell.

UPDATE:
Message Box has now been released in Cydia so it will be easier for most to just install it directly from Cydia rather than use these instructions.

Step One
You need jailbroken device to install MessageBox. You can find instructions on how to jailbreak your device via the iClarified Jailbreak Wizard.

Step Two
Install iFile and MobileSubstrate from Cydia. Of course, you also need Facebook installed from the App Store.

Step Three
Click this deb link using Safari on your mobile device.

Step Four
You will be prompted by Safari to choose an app with which to open the .deb file. Select iFile.
