Coby MID7065-8: Pre-Installed Flash (v. 10.2) Blocking Flash v. 11.1 Installation
I am new to this forum, as well as the world of Android.
I recently purchased a tablet, a Coby 7" Android 4.0 (model MID 7065-8)
. It has Android 4.0.4.
I have been trying to install Flash Player 11.1 for Android 4.0 from the Flash Player Archives. The program downloads just fine. However, when I go to install it, I get the following message:
"An existing package by the same name with a conflicting signature is already installed."
After several hours of digging around on the tablet, I found out that it came with Flash Player 10.2 pre-installed. I tried disabling it, hoping that would allow the newer version to install, but no luck. I also cannot find a way to remove the pre-installed version.
Some extra info: the reason I am trying to download the newer version of Flash is because I'd like to be able to access Amazon's Instant Videos and the current version isn't working. Also, I did try downloading the Mozilla browser to help things but got nowhere since the newer Flash won't install. The Photon browser seemed like it was streaming but it was rather diffcult to use, especially with the ads.
Any help and guidance in this matter is greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
