Hey everyone, since the thread of the pre-release gets commented really quick, i decided to make a new one with a tutorial to make the new Facebook Launcher work... Here we go:

Thanks to MoDaCo for this, this version works both rooted and non-rooted, chat heads working on Messenger app, tested by me.

If you are a supported device in an unsupported country:

Be sure to have installed Facebook and Messenger, and then install Facebook Home and enable it in Facebook Settings section.


If you are an unsupported device:

Uninstall all your existing Facebook apps (Home, Messenger and main one), and then install the patched Messenger, Facebook and Home app. Sign into Facebook app and "enable facebook home" should be there for you.


Once again, thanks to MoDaCo for this, i just tested and uploaded files to another host. Everything works, at least for me.
UPDATE: Thanks to theos0o for fixed Messenger app. Now SMS fully works too! Just test.

wont load my photos just have launcher and black screen

Give it a min, it didn't load mines at first either, but then it did. Be sure to be logged in everywhere and have it enabled on fb app...
ON: Messenger seems to work if you disable the SMS/MMS section...

You tried rebooting? Also, when you press the home key, select fb home and check the "always use this" tab, i had to do that AFTER opening it the first time to make the images appear

Hey everyone, since the thread of the pre-release gets commented really quick, i decided to make a new one with a tutorial to make the new Facebook Launcher work... Here we go:

First of all, install Facebook and Messenger

Now, you need to edit your build.prop in order to make your phone look like a Galaxy Note 2 (ROOT REQUIRED). Find your build.prop using any root file manager, and edit this:

Locate these lines:

Code:
ro.product.model
ro.product.brand
ro.product.name
ro.product.device
ro.product.manufacturer
ro.com.google.clientidbase

And change them to this:

Code:
ro.product.model=GT-N7100
ro.product.brand=samsung
ro.product.name=t03gxx
ro.product.device=t03g
ro.product.manufacturer=samsung
ro.com.google.clientidbase=android-samsung

And make a reboot.

Now, uninstall the previously installed Facebook and Messenger apps, and install them again from Play Store, but in the phone, not in browser, make sure to do that.
Open Facebook, log in, and you should see a "Enable Facebook Home" on the bottom of the settings. If you do, congrats, you are doing awesome :D
Now, install Facebook Home 1.0 (attached), and go to it in the app drawer, and begin using it :D

Screenshot to proof it's working:

Note: Everything works fine but Messenger. It won't load my SMS/Facebook messages either, still looking for a fix.

bootloops? Maybe you edited your build.prop wrong... Make sure you had a backup before doing it... Works fine on xperia live with walkman and on razr hd... Let me look for other edits
EDIT: Try this on your build.prop

ro.product.model=GT-I9300
ro.product.name=m0xx
ro.product.device=m0

Weird... Did you check the other method??

Could someone please make a version that works on an UNrooted Nexus 4 (stock AT&T).

For unrooted i think you'd need an apk without device restriction... idk how to do that, im sorry bro

Works for me.

Had a single hangup while rebooting a well, but another hard reset fixed that.

Cool launcher, but very limited and probably going to uninstall at the end of the day, haha.

anyone have any ideas how i can get es file explorer to save my build.prop
i got root and es file explorer has permission, it says error saving

Did you go to Settings, tools, root thingys, and mounted r/w system?

I figure it out

Hmm, that's weird. I had a circle for quite a while, then it started showing. Try going to facebook app and updating from there
