Default Reactiviated my HTC Hero and no ADOBE FLASH

I just reactiviated my old HTC Hero phone for my wife, since she wanted to try and see if she would like an Android phone. Now when I had it, I had flash on it, but after reactivating it and doing all the necessary updates that were avilable for the phone.

I decided to make sure she was running the current vesion of Adobe Flash, and to my surprise when searching for it in the market place it wasn't there. Did they stop using flash for the hero, what happen to it?

Thread moved to the troubleshooting section. The Sprint HTC Hero features Flash Lite and not full Flash 10.1+ as newer handsets have.

The Sprint HTC Hero is not capable of making use of full Flash 10.1+ because it has older hardware. It was also compiled only for newer ARM chipsets.
