    Hey Folks
    So I've been loving the roms so far but there's a new issue that's affecting all smart phones: lack-luster/featureless "m." versions of websites. Is there any way we can have the site just think we're running plain old chrome? :-\
    TY

    In your address bar type:
    about:debug
    Don't use any spaces. Hit enter. Then go menu - settings - set ua string. Choose desktop. No more m sites!

    Not sure if this works on the X, but it does on the D1.

    Type about:debug in the browser
    press the go button
    Hit the menu key
    Go to settings
    Select "UAString" at the bottom
    select desktop
    voila

    Edit: Well seems i was too slow lol

    Or you could get a third party browser like Dolphin, go into settings and change the User Agent to Desktop. Because, sometimes you might want to easily switch back and use one of those mobile sites.

    Thanks folks! Too bad there isn't a more permanent way to handle it (gotta keep resetting it when the browser shuts down) but either way, not like it's too hard to set up! TY TY!
