Default Getting Flash to work

Last night I decided to try to get Flash enabled on my N7. I read a couple of tutorials and set to work. I extracted flash from my LTEvo , installed it on the N7, d/l and installed Firefox beta. This didn't work at all, all I get is unsupported mime type where the video should be. I tried the non beta firefox (not supported in 4.1) and it would play one video, fail on the next and need a reboot to work again. Next I installed Maxthon browser. This works, but locks up after a short testing session. Anyone get flash to work properly? What browser and flash version are you using? While flash is not that important to me, now that I've tried to get it to work and failed?

Question No flash????

I recently purchased a Nexus 7 16GB for my wife as a gift . we are soon travelling and tablets are far lighter than a laptop. The problem is the lack of flash on Android 4.1
She was hoping to be able to play games with it, and this is supposed to be one of the things it is marketed towards. But the lack of Flash makes choices severely limited. She is particularly fond of Bejeweled, but this is a flash game so she cannot play .
Is there any way of working around this? I'm in a bit of hot water now, so any help would be great. Rooting is not an option, as she is not very technical, and I don't want to be on the hook for support.
Thanks.

I side loaded flash, BBC iPlayer and the Olympics app, the flash is working fine for the apps but not on websites. From what I've read it will work with other browsers but I've not bothered trying.

Try this. Go to all apps, look for "flash player settings" and select it. You should get popup with complete action using... Select your browser. Make sure you select "just once". Browser opens with green down arrow. Click it, should come up with options. Do this for each browser.

I know you said rooting is not an option, but 'The Nexus Root Kit' thread in the 'All Things Root' gives very good instructions on getting the N7 unlocked and rooted. Doing that allows you to install the stock JB browser and sideload Flash. I just did that and tested on CNN and some other websites. Worked like a charm. If you want to try, you'll get lots of help on the forum and your wife will be very happy.

I installed it for use with xscope as well. Xscope even gives you instructions on how to do it the first time you start the browser on an N7.

Cool Try these

If it's inappropriate to post any of these files, here, please tell me and I'll take them down, straight-away.

Adobe Flash Player 11.1 (Sideload this)

Dolphin Browser HD 8.5.1 (Last version to support Flash. A little slow, but works well - Once installed, DO NOT UPDATE Dolphin HD from the Play Store or you WILL lose Flash support (in Dolphin, that is))

Firefox Aurora (Tested extensively with Flash, sorta slow and crashes randomly (not even flash related), but works well)

xScope Browser Pro (Tested extensively with Flash, works great- Fastest/Smoothest video playback)

Boat Browser (Tested extensively with Flash, works great)

Smart SWF Player Pro (Plays any .SWF file perfectly - I use this to play Cargo Bridge )

And, this one requires root, but is BY FAR the best option:
How to install AOSP Browser on the N7 [w/o flashing] (Easy to install, BLAZING fast, rarely crashes, plays Flash *flawlessly* - You still get bookmark sync with Chrome, so keep it installed and use the Chrome bookmarks widget, but the steps involved in making it work requires removing the AOSP browser's ability to sync bookmarks)
Attached Files
File Type: apk com.adobe.flashplayer-3f0d57a34bf0204acb2f9b310aa37ac7.apk (4.49 MB, 921 views)
File Type: apk Dolphin_Browser_HD_8.5.1.apk (3.42 MB, 224 views)

You can just visit this thread from your n7 and download it. Once done, pull down your notification bar and tap the download and it will install. It might prompt you to enable unknown sources under development settings, first. If it does, just enable it as instructed. In any file explorer, the downloaded file will be in /sdcard/Download

I don't know what is up with my particular N7, but none of the Firefox variants worked for me with exception of the release version playing flash once, needing a device reboot to play again.

Maxthon, never one of my favorites, played OK but crashed and locked up randomly.

Dolphin works, but is a tad slow and lacks basic pinch to zoom functionality A lot of people love this browser, I never understood why. I find it over complicated and bloated.

xScope seems to be the best choice (so far). This used to be my go to browser back in my Samsung Moment days. I moved on to Opera for its superior d/l capability (or web kit based browsers d/l capability stinks) No free version anymore?

Boat? Need to give this one a try.

Dolphin HD has one feature ALL mobile browsers need.. A 'back to top' button.

Yeah, there's still a free xScope

In Firefox, I have to click the settings button and choose, Request Desktop Site. After I do that, the Flash content will play.

The weird thing is, in Firefox, all flash content is pixellated/blurry, (even the flash player settings menu) but it's perfectly clear on Boat browser and Dolphin.

Thank you. The lack of Flash was annoying and I am not highly techy, but xScope was the easy answer for me. It's working fine.

But, but, there's an app for that! Jewels is a million times better as an app than as a browser game.

There are a couple dozen apps/plugins out there that will grab the .swf and related files for you. Combine one of those with the magnificent app I've linked here, and you have all of your favorite games full screen, basically running as apps :-)

Hi,I'm new here and newish to android, after having an iPad 2 with lack of lash unless our bought an app, you got a laggy slow flash enabled device. I wanted a tab with flash, and thought android was unlike controlling apple, who won't allow flash so you purchase items through appstore. Seems like android/Google p,at might be wanting the same thing. Couldn't believe my eyes when I saw that adobe won't be catering for few above 4. Sorry for rant, but the flash on this is worse than the iPad.

I've been using dolphin for flash. The u.s. open is underway and I need to watch at work.

I was using it on firefox but like a poster said, its very pixelated. On Dolphin the quality is excellent and I have no stability issues on my N7. However, yesterday it stopped playing flash. It popped up a message that said dolphin disabled flash because its no longer supported...even though I never updated dolphin. Weird. So I had to uninstall and reinstall. I hope I don't have to do this every couple of days. That would be annoying. If this keeps up I'll go back to stock ics browser.

Keeping flash off of iCrap was Apple's decision.

Taking flash off of android devices above 4.0 was not Google's decision

Flash is owned by Adobe, and Adobe made the decision to stop making flash for mobile devices. Google had nothing to do with the decision.

Flash still works - flawlessly - on the Nexus 7, and this thread details how to get it running. One of the browsers that still supports flash will even hold your hand through the entire process and give you a lollipop when you're done.

The only thing "worse than the iPad" about the Nexus 7 is the build quality of the initial run, which has already been pretty well hammered down and smoothed out.

:smh:

If your n7 is so terrible, I'll gladly buy it off of you for a hundred bucks to help you recoup the cost and get you a step closer to buying another iPad...

No need that. Was dissapointed , yes, but I'm coming to terms with the fact adobe is ditching android then. And sorry it doesn't work flawlessly, or I wouldn't have a problem in the first place.

Works perfectly for me, man.. Although, there's a new update for Flash Player on Adobe's site, and it works even better than the one I posted, here.

Worth mentioning, too, that Adobe isn't just ditching Android, they've effectively ditched all mobile platforms.

Thats ashame , I know a lot of people arnt too bothered about flash, but there is just some websites that require it.

I'm using FF and don't seem to have a pixellation problem (other than the flash setting page), any web page samples? Any movie or TV show I find looks good. I like the syncing with my home and office PC that both use FF.

edit: Tried a good flash page (wechoosethemoon.org) on Firefox and Xscope... Firefox is definitely low res! Really don't like the zooming on Xscope though... sure hope FF fixes the resolution.

Flash works great on the N7's big brother TF300, that also has the Jelly Bean OS. The only two browsers that do not work with Flash that I have noticed are the stock browser and Chrome.

I installed Dolphin, set it up not to update and it went ahead and updated itself anyway!
Is there a sure-fire way to keep this from happening?

Now I'm using the stock Android Browser I installed watching Rev. Kyle's videos.

Got flash installed with Firefox, worked great for a while, but now increasing numbers of websites are detecting the N7 and displaying screens such as "this content is not available on your device"...... I'd much rather try than be blocked, but I guess they're pandering to the idiots who are now getting N7's with phone contract deals.

Only browser that has reliably played flash content for me, is x-scope ($3?).
I tried a few that said they were flash compatible, but nothing else worked.

I sideloaded the flask apk, installed it and then loaded up amazon video and it worked fine.

Love X scope, been using it for years on my N1. Not sure if it's worth buying again for N7 tho. For now I'm using puffin, for those few sites that require flash it seems to work fine without even having flash sideloaded.

Thanks for this link. I couldn't get flash to work & I checked your link & realized I had the wrong apk for Adobe Flash.
Things are working now & I've been able to access my Amazon Prime Videos through Boat; wish there was a way to try out xscope to see whether it works better than Boat.

Default Can't open file

I'm getting an error that I can't open the flash apk after downloading. I have enabled installing foreign sources. Any suggestions?
