Having trouble getting Adobe Flash on new devices and Jelly Bean? – Don’t worry, here’s how you can still get it

by: SamAugust 24, 2012
So Adobe have chosen not to release the Flash player to Jelly Bean devices and are discontinuing it as a whole. Poor move, frankly. This encompasses everything from the Nexus 7 to the custom Jelly Bean builds released by AOKP and CyanogenMod. However as usual XDA members are here to save the day. If you want to get Flash back on your device so you can watch Flash animations, videos and other content in your browsers, here is all you need to do.

Adobe will pull the plug on Flash for Android tomorrow. So long!

by: Andrew GrushAugust 14, 2012
It’s the early 2000s, and the Internet is a place that is quickly evolving. One of the standards that leads the pack for online video and gaming is the technology known as Adobe Flash. The sky is the limit and the future seems bright for the technology. Fast-forward to today and the scene has dramatically changed. After years of boasting that it would bring its rich multimedia experience to the mobile and PC world alike, Adobe announced last year that it would be stopping development of Flash for mobile devices.

Want Adobe Flash on your Jelly Bean-running device? Find out how to install it and make it work

by: AdrianJuly 25, 2012

As expected for quite some time, Google has broken all  ties with Adobe Flash and ceased offering support for the web technology in the latest Android version, Jelly Bean. And while many users are probably doing fine without the multimedia platform, there surely are a few nostalgic ones who would like the chance to install Flash on their new Android 4.1-running gadgets.

Fortunately, a couple of XDA-Developers forum members have already thought about that, so you can now easily and safely install Flash on any gadget with JB. Those who own a 4.1-running device with Android’s native browser app, like the Galaxy Nexus or the Nexus S, will have the easiest time.

Adobe confirms Android 4.1 won’t get Flash, and it’s also pulling the Flash app on August 15th

by: LucianJune 29, 2012

It seems this is the end of the road for Flash on mobile devices. Adobe tried their best to bring Flash to the mobile world, to both Android and iOS, but we all know what Steve Jobs thought about Flash, so that was never going to become a reality. Flash, even today, has poor performance on mobile devices, unless you own at least a dual core smartphone. With the world moving on to h.264/HTML5 video, there is less and less reason for Adobe to continue to pour resources into developing Flash for mobile/Android.

Both Adobe and Google have said last year that Android 4.0 is the last version to support Flash, and Google also said Chrome wasn’t going to support it when [...]

Why you should always upgrade to the latest version of Adobe Flash Player

by: Gary SimsMay 18, 2012

It is likely that you have some Adobe software installed on your PC or Mac. It could be Adobe Acrobat Reader, it could be Adobe Air, or it could be Adobe Flash Player.

Flash is so popular that Google ships it as a built-in plugin for its Chrome web browser. It is also likely that you have some Adobe software on your Android device, and it would be one (or all) of the same three listed above. All very nice – you can view PDF files on your PC and on your mobile device, you can use Flash on your PC and on your Android phone. But there is a price to pay for all this lovely integration – security. Adobe software is one of the hottest targets for hackers and malware [...]

Adobe Releases Security Updates for Flash Player on Android

by: Gary SimsMarch 7, 2012

Adobe has released a new version of its Flash Player for Android that fixes some critical security bugs. The new version of Flash, which, incidentally, is also available for Windows, Linux and OS X, fixes security vulnerabilities in Flash Player and earlier versions for Android 4.x, and Flash Player and earlier versions for Android 3.x and 2.x. These vulnerabilities, if exploited, could cause a crash and potentially allow an attacker to take control of the affected phone or tablet.

The update fixes two problems – the first is a memory corruption vulnerability in Matrix3D, a part of Flash which is used to determine the position and [...]

Adobe: Chrome for Android does not Support Flash

by: Christine TorralbaFebruary 8, 2012

Earlier today, Google released the beta version of Chrome for Android which excited a lot of people. One of the things that attracted people to the browser is because it provides support for the internet’s modern standards. At the same time, it includes several features which are not found on the default browser of Android. Unfortunately, there is one feature that is not included on the mobile port—the integrated Flash runtime.

Because this saddened a lot of people, Adobe issued an official statement which confirms this: Chrome for Android does not support Flash content. In addition to this, Adobe has mentioned they do not have any future plans of working with Google [...]
