Facebook Home now unofficially available for all Android devices, no root required

Facebook Home - for some reason we don't have an alt tag here

Last week, we told you how to get Facebook Home up and running on your rooted HTC EVO 4G LTE. But now, I’m happy to say that there’s a much easier method to get this on any Android device, with no root required.

Android developer Paul O’Brien has released three apks that disable the device checks and allow Facebook home to function on devices that are not yet supported, or that are located in unsupported countries. First, you’ll have to uninstall all preexisting versions of Facebook and Facebook Messenger that you have on your device, as Facebook Home interacts with these apps. You’ll also need to make sure that you can install apps from unknown sources.

Once that’s done, simply download these patched apks:

And that’s it! Facebook Home should now work, although I took it for a spin over the weekend and decided I hated it. I know everyone doesn’t agree with me, though, so it’s now here for you, if you really want it.
