    It's pretty useless right, so what's the best way to make it go away with out rooting? Can you just use a different home screen and relegate it to another screen, or can you just make it feed something minimal? Thanks in advance.

    Use a different launcher. I recommend Nova Launcher: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...oilsw.launcher

    once you update your phone to android version 4.3 there will be an option to turn off blinkfeed.

    I'm almost sure you can go into settings/personalise and change your home screen style to default instead of blinkfeed try my method and post back if it works

    Experiment with different launchers. There are some excellent ones out there. Nova as mentioned above being one. To stick with stock really limits the android experience imho.

    Did you mean 4.4 and sense 5.5?

    You can change your home screen to another panel but you cannot delete the BlinkFeed panel. As far as I know you need sense 5.5 to get rid of it.

    You can go to another launcher. I'm using the Google Experience Launcher, which is available from this link:

    http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2506488.

    I really like it, because the Blinkfeed screen is replaced with a Google Now screen. Much more useful to me.

    I'm sure it will. Its an android app. I happen to use fancy widgets which works fine. Same thing. Even if for some reason it didn't it would not be a reason to pass on the ONE.
