How to Install AOSP Browser On LG Nexus 4

If anyone got tired of using Chrome Browser On LG Nexus 4,Here's method by which you can use the AOSP Browser in your LG Nexus 4


  1. Download Browser.apk
  2. Copy the browser.apk into the System/app Folder
  3. Download and Install Root File Explorer
  4. With the help of root file explorer ,Change the permission of browser.apk to-rw-rw-r(it will represented as 664)
  5. Now rename the BrowserProviderProxy.apk & BrowserProviderProxy.odex e.g. just add 1 in front of the file name 1BrowserProviderProxy.apk & 1BrowserProviderProxy.odex.If you don't rename the file,the browser will force close.

With this method the AOSP browser works on your Nexus 4,but there is no bookmark synchronization.So,for bookmark sync follow these steps 

  1. Download ChromeBookmarksSyncAdapter.apk
  2. Copy it to system/app
  3. change permissions to rw-r--r--
  4. Restart
  5. Go to Settings,then Google Account
  6. Choose the account you want to sync
  7. Check your browser to turn bookmarks sync on
