    'Facebook Home' eh? Now that sounds like a brilliant idea... </sarcasm>

    Is it possible to completely destroy the monstrosity or does it still hide away, silently running in the background?

    Given it's apparently just a custom launcher, once you disable it as the default launcher there's no good reason for it to ever run.

    tbh though, the nice thing here is that the customisation has been done by creating a new launcher, rather than by messing with the core OS. Even though it's by far the easiest way to create a custom L&F for android, most companies seem to go for reinventing the wheel...

    Cheap, good spec for the price - if only it got Googly instant updates it'd be a bargain. But it'll quickly become outdated as I bet HTC won't update a low end model where the Android version is supposed to be Facbooked over.
