Slide83 asked if I knew of a way of getting AOSP browser working on the Nexus 10, this a method that has worked for me before.
> Must be rooted.
> Copy the browser.apk into the system/app folder
> With a root file explorer change the file permissions of the browser.apk to -rw-rw-r (you will see this represented as 664) If you don't do this, it won't install.
> You must rename the BrowserProviderProxy.apk
otherwise the browser will force close, just add a 1 to the name e.g. 1BrowserProviderProxy.apk1 Do not delete them, if you still want to OTA update Android. Android checks for any changes to the system/app folder before performing an OTA, so you will have to delete the browser.apk and rename the two file back to stock, when it is OTA time.
Any Nexus 10 owner that gets AOSP browser 4.2 working, please post Sunspider, Geekbench and Google Octane scores! (please
