I am running Affliction (stable) rom and love it. But the only thing I am really missing is the stock G2 (LS980) browser.
Anyone know how I can add it back? I have tried a few different ways but still cannot get it to work. I am pretty sure that Affliction Rom is De-Odexed, so I would need a version and instructions for that.
Thank you!

What do you like about the stock browser? I've been using Chrome since my last phone and don't think I've even launched the stock browser ever.

That's a valid opinion, but stock is stock and sometimes is better. It is not bloat, so why it was removed? Like the weather widget... I think that developer can't solve some problems so he removed parts of the rom. And thats a no solution....

Solution or not. It is by name his ROM, and this how he wishes it to be. Those that don't can add or remove things.

Well I am asking to have it back because I like using the stock browser for.....other things.

This way when I am done using it, I do not have to go and clear out my history like I do with Chrome browser, which will also show on my PC and other Google connected devices, but I don't really want to turn history off due to Google Now and other functions. Mainly though, I just like the lightness of the stock browser. If the dev of Affliction removed it due to compatibility issues, then so be it. Nothing I can do about that.

I was just wondering how I can get it back on there, what APK I will need (Ones I have found are original w/Odex file...no good), and how to make it work. None of the other G2 browsers I have tried work. They all FC.

I am with you! the stock browser is great and has its uses. I needed it too so I ended up using a different ZVD rom that contained the stock browser and was closer to stock in many other areas as well.

If you can find another deodexed rom with the stock browser, you can easily pull the apk out of the zip file (/system/app) and then copy it to your phone and use a root browser (such as rom toolbox) and move it to /system/app on your phone. Then it should show up in your apps list for use.

lurtis, thanks mate! This did the trick.

But since the method in that thread has a zip file including the framework for a ZVC based rom, I decided it would be best to just extract the deodexed LGBrowser.apk from it to avoid any issues.
Dropped it into system/apps, adjusted permissions, and rebooted. When it came back up it worked great.
Anyone doing this, just make sure that you change to the correct permissions BEFORE the reboot or it will not install. Took me a few times before I figured out why it wouldn't work.
