Kindle Fire's Silk browser ported to other devices
The Amazon Kindle Fire has had its Silk browser ported to more Android devices. The Silk browser has attracted hackers because can be set to use Amazonís cloud-based servers to pre-load and compress popular or regularly visited websites, resulting in a faster browsing experience. Now XDA member TyHi has developed a working port of the browser that will work on a range of Android devices, although a full list of compatible devices is not yet available.
To install the Silk browser on a userís rooted Android device, a package needs to be downloaded. Using Root Explorer, the lib files then need to be copied to the /system/lib with permissions set to the same as the other files.
Users can choose to install any of the .apks that they want to side load, but will need to ensure that they also move the Silk apk from /data/app to /system/app. After a reboot, the Silk browser should be installed and functional. [via The Android Soul]
