Patched version to allow moving to SD Card (ends up only using 4Mb of internal memory).

[Google removed the custom rom check in the latest version, but had a few people ask about patching to move to sd, so here it is]

Latest Version (14/03/12) - 0.16.4301.23

Download Here: http://www.mediafire.com/?uyjta1swtp0w459

Please note that because I've had to resigned, market updates in the future will fail.

And if you already have chrome installed, you'll have to uninstall before updating to the patched version, as the signatures don't match.

Do not attempt to use this if the first Chrome beta doesn't work on your rom, or if you are not running an ICS based rom. This will not help you there.

What exactly did Google do to stop Chrome working? Just checking for all the official phones on a whitelist or something?

What chrome does in the newer version:
It checks the device build id in build.prop. Mine is stock, because the ROM's build.prop is built from stock. Other roms may use unofficial ones, and thus it won't work

I get aborted installation when installing to DRH-ICS on viewsonic g-tab. Is there a work around?

Fix for the New Update for Non-Stock Roms (Without downloading separate APK):
Open up your build.prop, find the line for ro.build.id and change the value to IML74K. Reboot. Enjoy new Chrome update. =] (Always make sure to back up first!)

    Nice work. This version actually works much better on the n1 than the previous.

    No. Just like an i686 compiled program cant run on an i586 cpu.

    This zip is not installable in recovery modus -> nothing happens.
    No apk?

    It is a .apk in the OP, try a different browser
