How To Change The Default iPhone Browser

I’ve been asked this personally a few times before about how to set Opera Mini or Skyfire as the default web browser on iPhone or iPod touch. Thats why I decided to lay out a step by step ‘how to’ guide on the subject. Before you proceed, make sure you have a jailbroken iPhone or iPod which you can easily achieve via any of the latest jailbreak tools such asĀ Limera1n, greenpois0n, Pwnage Tool 4.1 for Mac or Sn0wbreeze 2.1 for windows.


Follow these easy steps on your jailbroken iPhone or iPod touch:

Step 1: Launch Cydia on your jailbroken device.

Step 2: In Cydia, go to Search tab and look up Browser Changer.
