Working great on my Xperia arc. Since Messanger doesn't have sms integration for my phone, heads are not working. Besides that, it's a good start. Too bad there's no place for widgets and also, the security settings are completely override. They only work if I open an app, but the lock screen is displayed to anybody...
I'm looking forward for next month update, hopefully you'll continue this mod so we can all enjoy it.

Tried this on Nexus 4 just so I could see first hand facebook home for myself, will never use it, however installing these two versions of facebook/home will result in your chat heads not working on fb messenger.

Jesus people, if you don't like it don't use it. There is no need to waste anyone's time complaining about it on the forums. The truth of it is, Facebook is actually one of the most uses apps, if not THE most used app for mobiles. Just because you don't use it doesn't mean others won't, and criticizing people for it proves nothing. Honestly? I hardly use Facebook, but I installed it anyways because its something new and different. The interface is smooth and easy to use and I rather enjoy it as a nice change up. Will I keep it forever? No. Is it the best app/launcher? Performance wise, I think its hitting a home run, cosmetically it hits a nitch group. But I like the sliding tiles and some of the effects it uses. It would be cool to see Google copy this with its Cards from Google Now and G+ and have some app integration on with it.
My biggest problem with this is it takes away the phone functionality and instead pushes for a more social networking thing instead. I think they need to encompass everything else a little more with this and it would be fitting for a wider range of folks. Overall, I think you people complaining are missing the bigger picture here. This is something new to be explored! Even If you don't care for Facebook that much, you should still check it out and enjoy some of the heat features. This is a completely different approach to the ruling he android interface and I'd like to see how it changes things with other launchers/app makers on the future.

Some tricks to try, if u have any previously installed Facebook app, uninstall before u install d modded one, then extract the content of the rar file before installing, don't install as action directly from rar file, use es explorer to unrar the content to a folder, then install from that folder.

    [MOD] Facebook Home "unlocked" + Messenger 2.43 *working* chat heads & SMS [NO ROOT!]

    Hey.. :)

    So I modded FB Home to run on all (?) devices, without touching build.prop or requiring root.
    Tested on GNEX, NEXUS 7 emulators.

    Home requires Android ICS (4.0) or newer!!!

    Download Facebook app & Facebook Home
    http://d-h.st/qOz

    Download Facebook Messenger 2.43 with Chat heads & SMS fix
    http://d-h.st/eQ9

    Installation
    • Uninstall original facebook, facebook messenger and facebook home apps. If facebook is pre-installed then you probably need root to remove it :(
    • Extract .rar!

    • Install com.facebook.katana.apk (FB app), then com.facebook.home.apk (Home app).
    • Also install fborca243.apk (Messenger app).
    • Enable facebook home under facebook app settings.
    • If you face any issues, reboot into recovery and wipe dalvik cache.​

    Expecting your feedback.
