1. Swipe the bobble up to open the bookmarks (the first page with apps) and swipe left to view All Apps.

  2. Scroll down until you find Settings and tap it. Scroll down again to the Device section and open Application manager.

  3. Swipe left to the All tab, find and tap Home.

  4. Scroll down to the Launch by default and tap Clear defaults.

  5. Press the home button on your Android phone and you once again will be given the choice to select which launcher you want use. Choose your previous launcher and tap Always to confirm. Finally if you want to disable Cover Feed after you unlock your phone, repeat step one, find and tap Home Settings, and uncheck the “See Home When Screen Turns on” — Or you can simply tap the “Turn Off Facebook Home” and then Turn Off.

Remove Facebook Home

One thing to keep in mind is that these instructions do not uninstall Home. To do that, just launch the Google Play Store, open the menu, tap My Apps, locate Facebook Home, tap it and tap Uninstall.

The awaited Facebook phone software is available now from the Google Play Store, but for US users only and in a limited group of Android phones (Samsung GALAXY S III, Samsung GALAXY S4 and Samsung GALAXY Note II, HTC One X, HTC First, HTC One X+ and with the HTC One — more mobile phones models will also get the new software pretty soon).
