My GSM provider hijacked my default homepage and I want to change it. There is no option in android ( nice open system right ? ). So does anyone know how to change it ? Device is rooted.

  • Have you tried going to Settings→Apps, scrolling to the Browser, open its entry, and "Delete settings"? Note that this would also clear your "other browser data/settings" you might have changed, and most likely also bookmarks, passwords, etc. Alternatively, there are plenty of Web Browsers available for Android, so you could simply switch to another ;)

I assume you are using the default browser that is provided in the android mobiles.

If so, Open your browser, go to settings by pressing the menu button, now go to General option and then set home page to whatever you like.

settings-->General-->Set Homepage
  • There is entry "Default page" that can't be changed. That's the entry I want to change/remove.

  • Your provider may have blocked that setting.

  • Device is sim-free. Either way, how do I change it. Where is that information stored ?
