Cool Found:Working Version of Adobe Flash player for Previal!

This is just a repost from a reply I made on another thread. Figured it should get its own post as some people might miss it due to the reinforcement that flash isn't supported on the Prevail... Which it wasn't, until now!

Small update, everything seems to be doing just fine. Other than a few embedded flash websites(smaller sites, all the big ones seem to be working just fine) everything else is working great. Youtube (without the app, just the page in the browser) Newgrounds, miniclip, and a couple other flash heavy sites are working just fine. Also dumped Pandora for the tinyshark app with no problems. Testing a few other "Flash Required" apps at the moment but so far no issues at all.

Now if I could only get Gun Bros to work (I know it won't, just because of hardware restrictions :/)


_____


I've found a hacked version of AFP 10.1 that will install and work on the Prevail.

I've found it works on funnyordie.com and a few other embedded flash movie sites (ones that even skyfire can't play).

Though it does tend to slow down the phone, and its a rather large file 11.1 MB I believe after the install..

Not all video is perfect though, a few sites i've seen where its half grey and the other half has a green tint to it, but its better than nothing.

The flash player for armv6 processors can be found below at this link:

ANDROID CAMPUS: [APP] WORKING ADOBE FLASH PLAYER FOR ARMv6 ( ARM 11) ANDROID MOBILE PHONES


Side note, once downloaded/installed, reboot your phone before you attempt to browse the web.

Hopefully this clears up any didn't work posts.


Also added barcode so you can skip the site. Tends to have quite a few adds.





***EDIT***

Another side note, doesn't seem to work with Opera Mini Browser. It does work with Skyfire and Dolphin HD, along with the stock browser.

I haven't personally tested it on Dolphin HD, but I do know it works with the stock browser and Skyfire. Dolphin HD is said to work with it on the site, I'll do some testing myself and see.

Confirmed. Dolphin HD will use flash. Was just watching videos on newgrounds.com and you tube without a problem.

I'd say download it and try. Though I highly doubt it requires root

Doesn't work for me for some reason. It installs fine but its like the browser doesn't detect it. I tried it with Stock, Dolphin HD, Skyfire, Opera Mobile on multiple sites.

I'm on ShabbyMod 0.8 so i dunno if that has anything to do with it.

You know what, I tried it out myself, and it does not work for me either. I tried the stock browser, and skyfire, and I am still using the stock rom by the way. Installed fine, just doesnt work.

Stock EE14 with bloatware removed. Working great.

I'm able to use Flash required apps now. Using Tinyshark and tested out some the flash format players.

Have you rebooted after you installed?

What sites are you trying?

Hey Mnemonic, thats great that you got it working! I tried the stock, and skyfire browser, but its like its not recognizing I have flash installed. Let me ask you, when you goto websites that have flash ads, can you see them? do they look like it does on the desktop?

Normally it shows up with a little green arrow and I have to press it in order for it to load it. By default flash will not load everything on the screen to save on bandwidth and such, at least with this version from what I've read about 10.1.

When you go to a site do you see white boxes with the blue square and a"?" or something else? The blue square is normally flash support not found, anything else, try clicking on it and see if it loads.

I'll post screen shots when I get home.

I am on xScope browser which says it has support for flash, it is set for "on demand" when I try to view flash I get the little lego like blue square.
I didnt bother with any other browsers because I dont use flash enough.

I'm on stock froyo with the stock browser and am rooted (not sure if rooted matters). I did find a few sites where the video looked like it had a line through it and half of the screen was green and a few sites just showed a black screen with no video, but if I were to just randomly load youtube on the browser, (not the youtube app) the videos work fine. The videos that didn't work were rare and were from sites that had content that was not the greatest.

Shabby, This was just an idea, but I was using the build prop from your mod, maybe that has something to do with it not enabling flash? Would that make a difference?

Thats what I was thinking, I am using the stock build prop but I enabled the stagefright like you did. I bet thats it, cause thats the only thing different. I'll try using the stock prop again, and see if works. Only prob is I dont have that phone with me tonite. damn!

I'm running the build.prop outta shabbymod 7 Slim, but heres the backup of my stock build.prop from EE14.


****Edit****

To those of you who are having issues with it not working, could you try downloading tinyshark from the market?

Even if you don't use it after this, it does require flash to run, and it has a built in flash checker.

You could also try going to the flash website.

Also don't mind the funky colors, shootme doesn't like our phone but heres some screenshots for flash:

Hmm.. Weird. Not sure what it could be then. For those of you running stock and having issues did you get the EE14 update or are your just running EE13 with safe modem update from here?

Browsers I have used with Flash and had work:
Stock Prevail Browser
Skyfire (not using their video link, as I was able to view embedded Flash videos, granted they looked a little off on a few sites)
Dolphin HD (newest version, installed after I installed Flash)


Quick Edit: In stock browser flash auto loads, in Dolphin HD it loads as though I don't have flash, but rather than a Blue lego looking thing, I have a green arrow pointing down. Once I click on the arrow it loads the flash content.

Also I'll post what i've done/running on my prevail:

Uninstalled:
Stock email (have gmail so it seemed pointless)
Swype Keyboard
Lymar or whatever it was called.
Hookyt or whatever it was called.
SCVNGR
Twidroyd
Youtube
Poynt

I am rooted.
Installed:
Remaining stock Apps including Browser (All EE14, was force updated before I could root)
Amazon App store
Barcodescanner
Llama
Dolphin HD browser.
Titanium Backup Pro
Updated Superuser (Updated it through the market, was base version from root, also updated my SU binary after upgrading SU)
Root explorer
Tinyshark
Old time radio
Power Control Plus
SeekDroid
Handful of games


Downloaded the flash apk directly to my phone from the site and installed.
Also had phone in debug mode with Unknown sources allowed (Not sure if that matters, but as the apk was modified it might)

Recently moved it to my system/app folder but it was working before hand and is still working.

I hate to break it to you but the site you're testing on, funnyordie, works without flash. I just tried it out.

I think its working now, but a few things. Mnemonic, could you google flash video demo, then goto that link, and tell me what you get.

Also, when using a desktop computer, and you go to almost any website, you get those flash ads, like on msn's home page all the way on the right you get an ad that constantly flashes, do get these types of ads on your phone like on the desktop?

Just curious, because is it supposed to act like flash on the desktop, or is it just for playing flash video you click on?

flashcomguru.com/apps/ something or other?

I get a big white screen with a green arrow in dolphin HD. It plays a BBC motion gallery when I click on it, only issue is half the screen is green the other half purple, but it does play the video.

Not sure on the ads, I had ad free installed, even though its uninstalled it looks like its still blocking ads on web pages. I'll see this link is not available with the little android guy.

I uninstalled Skyfire after I got flash working as for most videos I watched played just fine with flash and it could play the embedded flash videos that skyfire can't, even though some of them tend to be purple/green at least it would load the video rather than have skyfire tell me no video is present.

I'll test on the stock browser and reinstall skyfire when I get off work today and let you know how it went.

You know what, Necrotoxin is correct, I dont believe this flash player is working at all. IT does say its installed when checked, but doesnt operate. I can view all those videos without flash, and it does look like your screen shots. True flash will not open up a seperate player, it will play videos right on the website with the webiste still displayed.

That's correct. When it opens the media player that means your getting a mobile stream not embedded flash.

I have been staying away from this until the dust settled on what was what. My question to whoever knows is:

Do it work or don't it? I think I need a Flash for Dummies primer. I really do not think that I miss it that much on my phone but maybe I am wrong. What am I missing by not having it?

I dont use it so I dont miss it but some games use flash, and some embedded video in websites. Again I dont mind I dont watch much tv on my phone, that would be the number one reason to have flash I believe.
I would like it working, just to say it is but that is all.

Thanks, brother. Now, I don't feel so bad about not really being too worried about this.

Eh. Give me some sites to test out and I will. But I can use tinyshark and other flash required apps so far so I'd have to say its working. Like I said most flash sites have mobile sides to them, but I can use the desktop sites.

I know funny or die has a mobile page that loads when you go there, and you can switch to their desktop site.

Sounds pretty Cool. Thanks for doing the heavy lifting on this for the rest of us. TinyShark sounds interesting.

I did go to the desktop site. However I believe when you load the video it checks your user agent and if it determines you're on a mobile it loads the mobile video rather than streaming the flash video.

several browsers actually have setting to change the user agent.
I know xScope gives you android OSi and computer.

I was just saying if he didn't switch user agent fod isn't a good site for testing since it provides a mobile feed.
