I found some build instructions at chromium.org and some public repo (not google's) at github, but so far no apk.

I'm asking because I couldn't find a video or demo of chromium running on android either which makes me wonder if it works at all or just limited to a webview basic mode.

I saw it once and tried researching it but could not find it again. Not 1 apk but 2. You need them both. I do not remember their names.

Sounds like some modded whatsapp apks I seen, but couldn't find anything either

Wonder how difficult would it be to couple the chromium-based webview with a browser UI
