    I'm stuck using opera mobile right now because my miui stock browser is useless....is it possible to download the stock browser or is that framework dependant?

    sorry if this has been answered before...I can't search properly with opera lol

    I will say Opera mobile is faster on somethings, but on some sites it doesn't open them properly, like Gumtree.com for instance it just comes up with the outer edges of the site and I believe an advert in the center, but its just a white block over most everything.

    Why don't you use Firefox or dolphin HD?

    well I havent tried firefox and I hated dolphin, it just didn't feel right to me, it wouldn't stay full desktop all the time it would occasionally switch to mobile depending on some sites.

    whereas the stock android browser stays desktop all the time and works with everything including flash..least I found no issues with it.

    I can't help you with the browser issues, but I can tell you recommendations for the time being.

    Miren Browser. I use this.
    Boat browser. Seems nice still trying it.
    Opera mini. Nice but no flash, as you know.

    ironic you mention Miren, as its been said that this is what either *IS* the stock browser in MIUI (XJ version now) or the closest to it.

    I did install boat earlier and it seems alright, still a lil bloated more than I want it seems.

    and I always install Opera mini anyway for days I just want basic text quickly etc.

    well case closed now..

    after talks with both dan and hadron over this, it's not able to be done as its to do with compiling etc..

    so I've gone back to gingervillian 2.8 again now..

    I found this method using adb to install stock browser,try it out (if you havent already)

    From Computer:
    Code:
    adb shell
    $ su
    # mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
    # rm /system/lib/libmtwebcore.so
    # rm /system/app/Browser.apk
    # exit
    adb push (location of stock Browser.apk) /system/app/Browser.apk adb shell
    # mount -o ro,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
    # sync


    apparently this method was successful although it was for a different phone,maybe it will help.

    adb will push it but fail to install/run the file as the stock android browser needs to be recompiled to work with MIUI. Thats why I've now given up.

    Fair enough m8,i used to run gingervillain also but gave up on it after encountering a few bugs. I now use cyanogenmod and have had no problems whatsoever,i am even on the nightly builds now and it is very stable,i would recommend it if you are having problems with gingervillain.
