This is the AOSP browser. I compiled this myself from source.

I then add the bookmark sync file (I dont know who to attibute for that file) to flashable zip. Then modded the updater script to remove BrowserProviderProxy.apk

And Boom! There ya go!

NOTE: Incognito Mode does not work.

Flashable Zip attached

Tested on my own Stock Rooted ROMS.

Enjoy!







Hit Thanks please!

Can I ask, what is the difference between the stock browser and Chrome browser? The pros on the Aosp.

Did you go into accounts sync and turn on bookmark sync?

Yup, that solved my issue, thanks.

Is anybody else getting this when exiting out of the browser. Not a big deal, just wanted to know if I'm the only one.
