Default SILK BROWSER..AWESOME BROWSER hacked from kindle fire.

this is the awesome browser by amazon in their kindle fire. the interface is very very very polished.

download the zip from http://www.multiupload.com/7ISQD7B02H

pace the libs in the lib folder into /system/lib and set the permissions as 6-4-4

install the apps in the app folder normally.

now copy the com.amazon.cloud9-1.apk from /data/app to /system/app and set the permission as 6-4-4

reboot.

enjoy a great browser.

Silk brower sucks because it is always active in the background so it's a battery hog.

android apps are actually designed 2 be alive at the background in a cache,ready for u 2 use it when u need. the silk browser IS actually a battery hog, but it is having a very nice intuitive interface that i like and thot of sharing.

You didn't read carefully what I wrote. I've said that silk stays active in the background, not stopped like everything else when you don't use it.

Also it's worth mention that after locking the screen silk goes in to inactive state. So it's only active till you lock your screen, on next unlock it's inactive (not like for example stock music app from v20n which is active all the time).

edit: nope Silks wakes up randomly there's no pattern
