It was just last week that Facebook Home for Android was announced and was pegged for a release on the 12th of April. However thanks to the folks at MoDaCo, they have managed to get their hands on what looks like a pre-release version of Facebook Home that according to them, will play nice with a wide range of Android devices, including the Nexus 4. This is particularly interesting as officially, Facebook Home will only be compatible with 5 handsets at launch.
However since this is a pre-release version, there are some things to take note of. For starters there will be several features not working/missing, such as the Chat Heads feature. The maximum resolution supported will also be 1280×768, which we guess for non-Full HD devices shouldn’t be an issue, along with other risks associated with unofficial releases. The good news is that it does not seem to require root access, for those with unrooted devices, you can rest easy. For more details and the download, head on over to MoDaCo’s website (source link below).
