Hi,
I always used the AOSP android browser(like the one in old nexus s and galaxy nexus) on my old skyrocket. Is there a new version that can work on 4.4.2 on our device ?

Yes there is, it is included in my rom among many other things, The attached one is pulled from the rom. Just copy it to system/app and reboot.

Thanks sir !
The thing is my device is not rooted as of yet ! I don't wanna trip Knox and waiting hopefully for a future custom recovery that doesn't trip it !
Thanks anyway, is there a smart dev who can make it as an installable /data app ?
