If you’re looking to get your hands on Facebook Home a tad early, then you can now do so. Thanks to a handy leak, the 3 APKs have been uploaded onto the majestic thing we call the internet for everyone to download and install onto their devices. We’re currently unsure of which devices the APKs can be installed on, though it has been successfully tested on a Galaxy Nexus and Nexus 4.
To get Facebook Home working, just download the launcher, Facebook app, and Facebook Messenger and install them all — you may need to uninstall Messenger and the main Facebook app if you already have them installed. Let us know how it goes!
Looks like Facebook has switched something off, according to a post from TechCrunch it appears that all of the leaked builds have gone dark. Paul O’brien from Modaco who originally got a hold of the software advised via twitter :
Facebook Home update: It looks like Facebook turned something off server side… only a black screen is showing in the app now. Killjoys! 🙁

Paul has advised that he is looking into the blackout and will advise when he has something to share, but he has confirmed the issues are definitely server side. So, if you’re keen to try out Facebook home you may just have to wait a little longer.
