Couldn't get the above working on Windows 7 64 bit.

On running the batch file I get an device can't be found error message.

Tried non rooted and rooted and still the same problem.

Finally managed to install by rooting the device - viewtopic.php?f=42&t=947

As the system/fonts directory is read only "chmod 777 fonts" and then copyed the missing fonts into place.

Opera is now working - uninstalled though after 15 minutes as it keep freezing (latest opera mobile)

Went back to the excellent Xscope 5 and unrooted the system (was going to remove phone.apk, etc but read it screws up the factory reset and hangs the system ?)

Not sure what it will be like on the Scroll, but I have tested a range of browsers on my transformer, and in the end came to the conclusion that "Dolphin Browser HD" was more or less perfect.

Tabs, Home button, back and forward gestures, easy to find bookmarks, renders pages quickly and correctly.

Opera was my first choice, but found it was a bit buggy and tried to load pages in mobile view more often than desktop or tablet view even if you changed its settings
