Default Flash for Kitkat

So, apparently Kitkat kills flash, unless you go to xda and get their brilliant hack!

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=47958533#post47958533

Doesn't require root. Requires uninstalling flash apk and downloading one made in xda thread.

Apparently the only browser that supports flash in Kit kat is Dolphin. Not tried it but would consider it if I needed flash

Default Flash Player

I've downloaded Dolphin and that environment does support Flash Player and it works just fine!

Isn't Dolphin the one that works with flash via its server as opposed to Flash on the device itself? As I remember, somtimes it breaks because of server problems (but mostly it works).

Default Flash Player

I saw that it actually downloaded flash player to my device as a part of 'Dolphin'.

If anyone follows Mike (the Daily Note video's) on youtube he's done a video on how to get flash working with Dolphin.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vtm7MyaoZg0&feature=youtube_gdata_player

Yes, Dolphin worked without any issues, using the last Adobe Flash apk...but, after Kitkat, it doesn't work. Only reason I know is because I primarily used Dolphin, for any flash related websites that I needed to browse and got the same error mentioned in the XDA thread I linked.
