Using MIUI (ICS) browser on CM7?!?

I just flashed back to CM7 from MIUI until they get some of the bugs fixed. But I loved almost everything about MIUI, the browser included. I love the full screen capability, the browser rotation lock, and it just seemed fast and smoother.

Is there any way to use the MIUI browser on CM7? I tried replacing the stock "Browser.apk", but it wouldnt let me. I also tried installing the MIUI browser.apk and it just comes up and says "Not Installed".

I'm wondering if its even possible since the MIUI framework is different than CM7.

Any thoughts?

In order to get it work you would need the browser framework files from MIUI.Im not sure if their compatible with CM7 thought because i think MIUI has some 4.0 framework in it.

I beleive the only way to do it would to MIUI push the framework to system. Im not sure what exactly the result of doing that would be tho..could create some problems if not bootloop you. I tried playing around with the apk file and the libwebcore.so as well as some other libs and it was a no go. You should given Miren browser a shot its very similar.

You know I'm pretty sure there is a ported miui browser lying around. I've downloaded and tried it once when using eclipse 2.1

Nope it hasn't been ported. The closest thing to this browser that will work with CM7 is Miren browser. I was thinking about trying to get it to work on CM7 but after taking with a couple people I decided not to. Simply because it requires replacing so much CM7 framework it defeats the purpose of getting it working. I mean sure you would have the MIUI browser working but in doing that would create so many other problems. CM7 uses 2.37 framework and the framework used for the MIUI browser is 4.0. I think there would be better hope getting this browser on DZK's CM9.
