    I recently just went back to a Froyo rom because the latest GB builds are not running well on my OG droid. I miss the GB stock browser! Is there a way to get the apk for it, or how can I get it on my Froyo rom? I've searched, but haven't been able to find it like I did the new market. Any help is much appreciated!

    From any specific GB rom? I would just use 7zip to get it from my favorite rom and try & install it like any other app. Or I can give you one in an update.zip to flash through recovery.

    CJM to the rescue once again!

    I liked the browser in Liquid 3.2.

    Here you go. I just pulled the Browser from Liquid 3.2 and put it in an update.zip. Its been a loonngg time since I've used any Liquid roms. And I dont know if this is compatible with froyo. So Make A Backup!

    Link pulled, didnt work .This going to put it in System/App if you need to look for it.

    Np. The browser app is the only thing in that zip, so it will flash fast.

    It didn't work. I flashed the zip and when I rebooted the browser was not in the app drawer. So I went to system/app and tried to install the browser but it says there was a problem parsing the app, or something along those lines.

    OK. We can try a few more ways. You may have to delete your existing Browser app and reboot 1st. It would be in either Data/app or System/App.

    Edit: Links didnt work :(

    Maybe one of those will work.

    I tried all three ways and I got the same error message. Maybe that browser wasn't meant for Froyo?

    You could try pulling the app from the .zip and putting it in /system/apps, set permissions, and reboot. Use root explorer or something similar. I'm not sure if it would work but it's worth a try:)

    I deleted the links already, but I posted a zip and just the app. Kept getting the same error. We're thinking its not compatible with Froyo

    I know apps will install by using the method I posted, however, there will be force close issues if the browser is not compatible with froyo. I'm thinking it probably isn't anyway because the gingerbread build has copy and paste features whereas froyo does not.

    Yeah I notice a lot of things missing on Froyo that I had gottne used to. But, its running problem free, and that's all I need for the next week or so.
