    Have you ever been annoyed by the browser going to the "mobile version" of a site? Lord knows that I have.... Heres your fix... launch your browser and put "about:debug" in the url bar and hit go. The browser will appear to have done nothing. Then hit the menu button, and a new option will appear called "UAString" Go into the UAString menu and select IE6 or Linux Desktop. Either one will make sites not recognize that youre using a mobile browser and alleviate thei aforementioned issue :) Happy rooting y'all and happy holidays :D

    Maxthon also has this available. lol, I've tried enabling mobile browse mode on my desktop due to poor internet, but I couldn't remember what was needed to be typed. Nice!

    about:debug - not in firefox o_O

    Isnt this option available under the config in the stock browser as well?

    I remember having to do that when I was playing around with FaceSniff a while back

    have you rebooted the phone since you changed it back?

    I wonder if you would have to go into the browser app and clear the cache?
