Is it possible to remove "Shared" button in Photos App?

I was just curious as I found videos of previews for the iphone 6 / ios 8 without the middle "shared" button between "photos" and "albums". I find this button annoying because I don't use iCloud for photos and I often hit that item on accident when trying to scroll, opening the control center, or selecting something near the bottom of the screen.

Any help? It seems like the photo app got worse since ios6 imo. I don't even understand why photo icons on the folders are always the oldest picture and you can't change that. It used to be the first image in the folder (so you could actually move the photo to the front if you want that image on the folder).

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Stock? No.

Jailbroken. Possible.

Wait for the iOS 8 jailbreak, jailbreak and then as on the JB forums here. It's probably a graphic file somewhere in the file system that can be renamed or something. Or maybe someone can make a tweak. IDK.

But stock? No.
