Permanent Change For US WiFi Xoom – Desktop UA String

Many readers will know that in the Android browser, settings can be changed on the User Agent string in order for your Android browser to identify istelf as a desktop browser whilst surfing the web.

This involves opening the web browser, typing in ‘about:debug’ in the address bar and hitting Go. You then need to go into Settings and manually amend the UAString option to identify itself as Android or Desktop.

XDA forum member insty became frustrated with having to do this every time, hence the XDA member has patched up the US WiFi Xoom to make this a permanent change.

The package is a CWM flashable package and the XDA member has also included the stock framework should you want to revert back.

For more information and to download the zip, check out the modification thread.
