Yes you need root to change the permissions and rename the system files in system/app

Glad it works.

I like chrome, I just can't understand why they didn't include flash. I use chrome and flashify so I can easily switch to browser

Thanks for the AOSP Browser apk, is working great on my side and flash works great, I just uninstalled Dolphin, even the bookmarks widget is better.

Hmm, I just tried it out and it worked fine on Amazon prime if I was already in landscape when I went to fullscreen. Finally lol .
