Just tried Facebook home and it is a bit weird at first but i like it! I had to change the build prop in order for it to work, changed to Note 2. Got the apk from android police

Can you explain step by step how to make it work please :-(

ro.product.model=SPH-L900

ro.product.brand=samsung

ro.product.name=t0ltespr

ro.product.device=t0ltespr

ro.product.manufacturer=samsung

Change the following in your build.prop, reboot, and install facebook home.

After deleting fb can I just leave all this new info in build or should rewrite old back?

It works but I think it is crap. Feels like I'm stuck in fb app and can't find a way out.

Its a good app if you tend to use Facebook more than android itself.

I try it. Its good idea, but its a little lagy.

depends on the ROM you are using. I am using Electra by Kyan31 and it is smooth.

If you look in the android software section of modulo Paul has posted a patched version, however you'll have to reinstall your current Facebook and messenger apps. Worked on my nexus 7 haven't tested it on the G300

so far not good news for FB Home..

Yeah i saw the ratings since yesterday, very negative. Its mainly because the majority want to still use widgets. Its a good launcher if you tend to use FB 24/7 like me otherwise its pretty much useless.
