just figured a few things out
1) the browser does work. i tried chrome to phone and the browser works perfectly fine and i can go to other websites without a prob. it just only force closes when opening the browser directly. then i tested if it was only google.com giving the force closes and it is. i set twitter.com as my homepage, closed the browser, reopened and not a single force close
2) missing market apps. cant find my verizon or twitter. can any1 send me the apk of each. i hope it's not considered warez since both are free apps
The browser will work if you set your home page to something other than google.com, it crashes because something is messed up with the location manager and google's mobile site makes a call to the gps
Market apps will appear if you change the fingerprint to the one from FRG83D
how do i change the fingerprint?
Edit the build.prop under /system. Find the one from the FRG83D build where it says fingerprint.ro (or something?) and paste it in place of the one in the gingerbread rom
For those having issues with signing in to Gtalk. Go to Settings/privacy and do a factory data reset. Once the phone reboots, go to Gtalk FIRST. It will prompt you to log in to your google account, log in then. This worked for me!
