Facebook Home

Facebook Home is here, at least for a limited number of devices. The official list of supported devices is limited to the HTC One X, One X+, Samsung Galaxy S3 or Galaxy Note 2. The good news is that unofficially, there is a way to get many other devices working with Facebook Home.

The geniuses over at XDA Developers have now created a mod that removes device-specific limiations allowing you to try Home on almost any handset. So what do you need to do to make it work?

Step 1: Uninstall Facebook and Facebook Messenger if you already have them. For those with Facebook pre-installed on your handset, you’ll need root access to manually remove it.

Step 2: Download the modified Facebook Home and, if you want, Facebook Messenger. Extract the .rar file.

Step 3: Install the officially Facebook app, then the Facebook Home Launcher, then the Facebook Messenger app.

Step 4: Enable Facebook Home under Facebook app settings. Reboot.

This should be all it takes to get Facebook Home up and running. For more information, head over to XDA.

What do you think of the Facebook Home launcher, is it a game changer or could you care less about the idea of a ‘full screen’ Facebook experience?
