GakuGaku has ported blinkfeed from sense 6 over to work on various phones running 4.4. I originally came across this from an article that stated this port works on the Nexus 5. I have tested it and found that it also works on the Sprint LG G2. They are up to version 9 which comes with different theme colors. This is WIP and there are bugs. For instance Facebook isn't working with this blinkfeed port as of yet. Also since there are portions of sense 6 with this port to make the blinkfeed work, there are "grid" issues and therefore a lot of widgets don't work on other screens. Once installed you will have kind of a hybrid between sense 6 and LG Home. The softkey menu, the app drawer and windows are all sense 6 but your Lg Home notification area is still there and the main settings menu is still LG home. You can also turn off blinkfeed/sense 6 by going into settings and changing your launcher back to LG home.

As far as I know HTC will release blinkfeed on the play store so I suggest people to wait

I found a work around for the grid issue. If your running xposed then download and install the "App Setting" module. This will allow you to change your DPI per app. Once installed, open up HTC Blinkfeed in the app list in the App Setting module. Change your DPI from 0 to 380.

Now set up all your favorite screens and widgets. Don't worry about everything look out of place and not centered. Don't worry about re-sizing widgets either at this point. Just get them on the screens where you want them.

Now go back into the app setting module and edit the HTC Blinkfeed DPI to 480. Now everything should look a lot better. For whatever reason we cannot add a lot of the widgets in the 480 dpi setting even though that's what fits best and is centered. However if you add them in another DPI then they will stay there when you change back to 480.
