Hackers have successfully deployed the Kindle Fire’s Silk browser on other Android devices.
“The hack requires a rooted device, and some mucking about with apk files, but does share the Silk love,” writes The Register’s Bill Ray.
“XDA-Developers member TyHi initially hacked the Silk browser into the popular CyanogenMod Android distribution, but others have tested it on a wide variety of builds and devices — though there appears to be no reason to bother beyond the joy of seeing what can be done,” Ray writes.
