Facebook Home was released last week, but is currently only available for a handful of devices. So far it only works on the HTC One, HTC OneX, Galaxy S3, Galaxy S4, and Note2. That leaves most of you out in the cold. Of course you probably all knew it wouldn't take long for modders to get this working on all Android devices. The method is simple and doesn't even require root! This only works on Android 4.0 or higher so keep that in mind.

First you will need to make sure you have all instances of Facebook removed from your device. Uninstall Facebook, Facebook messenger, and any Facebook Home app you currently on your device. Download and install the apps linked to in the source. You will need to head to the facebook apps settings page (Home, Settings, Facebook) and check enable next to Facebook home.

Yeah, it sounds like a terrible launcher and not even a good Facebook app replacement. As far as the launcher goes there is no easy access to the phone or camera. There is also no support for folders or widgets - let me say that another way, no widgets can be used.

You would think they at least have the Facebook side of things down but they don't. While it shows crops of images large and full screen you can then view the full image but you can't rotate or zoom on the image. That makes image viewing at least far more limited than the mobile app. There also doesn't seem to be a way to force it to update your feed. You can't really tell how new or old items are either.

I've been using the ChatHeads in Facebook Messenger since that update was released and haven't had any problems. I think the ChatHeads were the best feature of Home anyway so I'd just stick with that rather than using Home. I really which Google Talk and even GMail had similar functionality.
