    With constant FC's most of the time, I miss the old browser. Can someone upload the apk for that please? Thanks.

    It works fine for me. I've uninstalled the new browser and then I used SystemApp Remover to restore the old browser (the one from zip file) and didn't have any issues using it.

    Thanks a lot. Works great. I freeze the latest browser with SystemApp manager, copy browser2 apk in system/apps, changed permissions and owner, rebooted, and Viola...

    FC happened to me while clicking the link. Then I downloaded on my PC and copied the apk on SD card. Try that, it will work.

    @ wiineedmore
    It doesn't install.
    I used root explorer to copy in system /apps, and change permissions and reboot.

    It is very simple:
    First copy browser.apk to sdcard
    Then open terminal emulator type the following commands:
    Su
    Sysrw
    Cp /sdcard/Browser.apk /system/app/Browser.apk
    Chmod 644 /system/app/Browser.apk
    Sysro
    Reboot
    That should work flawlessly

    Yes, but...................

    rename current browser in the /system/app to browser.apk.old or just remove it.

    the browser you are using should be called Browser2.apk

    put the browser2.apk in the /system/app file, set permissions to rw-r--r--

    do not install the browser, just reboot after you put it in the /system/app and set permissions

    This is very easy to do using root explorer or adb

    I tried all the above methods and am still getting fc.
    I hope I don't offend but the current browser sucks...bad. Since this is my first MIUI ROM and don't know what the "old" browser is, I can only hope it's default Google. I have installed about 8 ROMS in the last two weeks trying to find the one I want to stick with and MIUI has me very excited... If I can get default Google Browser then my search is over.

    btw, I did place files in system/app
    renamed old
    Set permissions
    rebooted many many times

    Either another file is needed or a different method. For my EVO anyway.

    Yes, mrloopie is right. I also tried many times. I get the browser icon but when I open it, it FC.
    I think with 1.8.26 rom, maybe there is any other file needed.
    Mark, can you please find a way to do this, because the new browser just sucks.

    Ya I've been trying for over an hour to get the old browser to work on 1.8.26. No luck. I'm going to restore my nandroid, because I can't deal with the new browser. This thread has over 1000 views hopefully devs pick up on that. lol

    Yes, you are right, over 1k views! But maybe we are the only few who are fed up with browser problem. Could be working for the rest.
