Adobe stopped providing flash support for Android devices and anything running jelly bean isn't even going to work. You can still find downloads of flash if you google it. I would much rather use google chrome but it doesn't support flash so its the stock browser for me.

That isn't all true. I run 4.2 JB on a Nexus 7 and Flash runs. You just need to side load it and use the right browser.
I also sometimes use the Puffin browser and Flash support is built in. No need to install the apk.

Yes. I thought you meant Jellybean as a blanket statement. My bad.

Found a browser that does flash. Puffin https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.cloudmosa.puffinFree&feature=search _result#?t=W251bGwsMSwxLDEsImNvbS5jbG91ZG1vc2EucHV mZmluRnJlZSJd

free version gives you a 14 day flash trial, the full version is $2.99

You can do flash in many browsers; although I have found that you have to have the correct version. Look for 11.1.11527 there is a thread on xda I found two days ago with several versions posted. The download file is called "install_flash_player_ICS (1).apk" works great on CM 10.1 on my Nook.

The version I was using on GB did not work even though it was the same version number.

I had flash installed from play store till the upgrade to ICS, puffin isn't a flash install, and it works pretty good.
