    Guide: 3.2.4 4g users browser user agent permanent work around.

    Guide: 3.2.4 4g users browser user agent permanent work around.

    This a quick guide for us 4g users to fix that damn UA string in the stock browser.
    I prefer the stock browser because where ever I go I can get to my stuff...
    I found some instructions for this edit, and would have made the edits then made a update.zip,
    but I'm getting the stinky eye from the wife. maybe later

    I wish I could run the team tiamat moray rom but need 4g
    the moray rom from team tiamat is awesome and has a browser with ua string in the options menu
    also love the dspmanager, so I got that also out of the rom.

    many thanks to team tiamat and the team rogue for the awesome tools to do all this stuff.

    takes about 30 mins (while watching tv)

    MAKE A NANDROID BACKUP!! (this will be used later) (team rogue new recovery rocks and is fast)

    Extracting Browser:
    1. install the tiamats moray rom. (here in the forums you can find with install directions)
    (you can also just extract the downloaded rom and grab the browser out of their)
    --if you have not tried the rom, try it out, it is nicely done - hopefully a 4g will be out soon--
    2. after you reboot copy /system/app/Browser.apk to a directory of your choice.

    3. restore your xoom with the nandroid backup you just made.

    Installing extracted browser:
    1.turn on airplane mode

    2. uninstall stock browser
    in titanium backup goto backup/restore and quick click the browser and uninstall.

    3. copy extracted browser
    I used es file explorer with root permissions.
    copy the Browser.apk to /system/app/

    4. clear browser data
    in your xoom settings goto applications/manage applications/browser and clear the data.

    5. turn off airplane mode

    6. in browser options set your ua string.

    7. goto your book marks option and setup bookmark sync, choose delete to get your chrome bookmarks sync down to your xoom.

    8. turn off auto update for the browser in titanium backup in market tools/market auto updates

    done

    3 days, a few reboots from abusing my xoom still working great.
    so untill the update the browser should be good.
    cya

    ps sorry for trying to post this in Motorola Xoom Hacking Guides, i didn't read the sticky first

    after you get your update to 3.2.4, it will still work.
    the browser will break the update, so put your backup back on, update then reapply

    can a mod please update the thread title
    thx

    edit: a patch was released to fix this in rom 2.3.0- if you apply the patch over this hack, you must change the ua to anything then back to desktop for the patch to work.
    apply the patch the browser is newer and smoother.
    thanks team eos/tiamat!!!

    in team tiamat rom 2.3.0 for 4g the ua will not stay for me. this fix works on it also .the rom is amazing, with the rogue kernel its even faster (the rogue kernel did not cause the ua issue, installed it to fix 4g issues in weak signal areas)
