Tired of 3rd party browsers? Need flash?

Here you go

Before going on, this flashable ZIP is the easiest way:
4.2.0:

4.2.1:

Here is the link to the apk I used, it is from a Nexus S JB ROM, but ICS may work too. IDK:

https://dl.dropbox.com/u/11759879/Browser.apk

I used ES file explorer with root permissions to do this.

Just place this app in your /system/app folder, change the permissions from rw------- to rw-r--r--

NOW this is important, If you see a browser browserproxyprovider.odex You should rename them! I just threw a 1 after the file extensions.
If you don't do this step the browser will just forceclose.

Now reboot and you are all set

I haven't tested everything yet. But it loads webpages and the settings menu. I will check flash and make sure everything is fine with chrome when I'm no longer in class.

Flash work perfectly. Better than it did on ics
Whoo!

Note: If you have any issues, please try wiping cache and dalvik

I think you'll need the JB version, am fairly sure you could extract the one from the new AOSP ROM.

Is there an AOSP Rom for the Nexus7?? I searched the Dev thread and saw none.
link?


I did pull the browser from a AOSP JB rom for the Nexus S. It force closed again when it tried to sign in.

Here is the apk:

Thank you so much. Flash is working and everything seems good, except for my bookmarks (as theres no option to sync browser in Accounts). Time to ditch Dolphin at least!

It will go fullscreen, but going landscape doesn't expand it (looks squished)
