Default Stock JB browser from the network Roms

Here's a working Deodexed Browser.apk from the ThreeUK build.

the sim-free xZ come with Chrome as default,

some people prefer the normal android browser (I Like both, so use this and chrome beta )
it does have some features that chrome doesn't such as full-screen and quick-controls.

to install : You will need ROOT !

on an unbranded rom, you will need to remove
system/app/chrome.apk
system/app/BrowserProviderProxy.apk

Possibly remove
data/app/Chrome apk
data/data/com.android.browser.provider

otherwise you could get issues with conflicting package names.

then push this to system/app and chmod to 644


Appears you need chromebookmarksyncadaptor as well to get synced bookmarks

cheers r1c4rd0 for that

copy the browser.apk in root explorer to system/app/ and set the correct permissions to the same as the other files in there rw-r--r- (or 644 as a code)
