Facebook announced Facebook Home just a few days ago with an expected release on April 12. Unfortunately for Facebook, Facebook Home was leaked earlier this morning by MoDaCo which most likely resulted in a number of curious Android users to download the leaked version in order to see what it’s all about prior to its release. Even more unfortunate is the fact that those of you who already have Facebook Home will now be out of luck as Facebook has killed the leaked build from accessing the service.
MoDaCo’s founder Paul O’Brien reports the leaked version of Facebook Home is no longer accessible as he believes Facebook made a server-side change, causing Android users who installed the leaked version to be met with a black screen. A number of beta testers for Facebook Home also report they’re being met with a black screen when they attempt to access the service. O’Brien has followed up by saying he has implemented a “dirty fix,” but has not decided to make the fix public yet. Considering how quick to the trigger Facebook was today, we think that’s probably the best course in this situation.
