    yes, done that. i thought it might be because its a custom rom and i havnt got any new updates for it (cant seem to find them anywhere)

    give us a list of sites that give you this message then we as a community can try on our x10s to determine if it is your phone or a genuine flash issue?

    Try a different site like ESPN or CNN or something.

    I was unable to watch the most recent UFC prelims on my phone from facebook. All other sites using flash worked fine, but not facebook....worked fine on my laptop.

    Does it work on other websites?

    I agree it must be something about the way Facebook runs flash applications. I'm not rooted and have got the 'official' 2.3.

    I'm able to go to flash websites fine, BBC iplayer works well, as do sites with flash games. However, when I try playing Bejeweled Blitz or Zoo World on Facebook, it looks like it's loading correctly, and then I quickly see the start screen before the game area turns white with a 'play' icon in the middle of it. Pressing this icon just reloads the game until the white screen re-appears.

    Has anyone been able to play Bejeweled Blitz on Facebook on their X10?

    Some people say they have had better luck using the Dolphin browser. But I have tried Dolphin, Skyfire and the default and it doesn't work.

    FLASH...still a no-go.

    I tried CNN and get the usual that I need Flash 10.0 or later. I installed Flash 11. It shows up in my applications however if I go to the Market place it just tells me that Flash is not compatible with my device. ( Optimus V, CyanogenMod 7, Android 2.3.7 )

    Has anyone gotten Flash to function? Did Adobe just decide not to support Android devices as well as they do other platforms?

    Is there a way to get Flash installed so it will work?

    Have you only tried the default browser or have your tried Dolphin or Skyfire?

    I use Dolphin but have tried default browser as well. :eek:

    I uninstalled Flash 11 and it did not seem to have any affect on anything I can tell. It appeared to be installed but I could not tell it was actually functioning at all.

    I am using the default browser, I am using Android 2.3.3. Baseband 2.1.71 running TEAM ROM 4.

    I connect over Wifi.

    I goto cnn.com...it redirects me to their mobile site, I click on Audio/Video at the top, try and story, click the Click to Play button under the story and it plays the ad for me....followed by the story.

    I don't have flash installed.

    Not in my market or in my list of installed apps under App Management.

    Matter of fact, when I go to Adobe's flash test site, my browser fails and doesn't show the flash test image.

    Maybe trying to use flash on CNNs site is your problem. CNN doesn't only broadcast in flash....they must to HTML5 or soemthing...otherwise ipad users couldn't use CNN.

    Please keep in mind that whilst you can play FLV files (flash video format) they do differ from the SWF flash format of a Facebook game which is not supported from my understanding.

    CNN aside what about Flash on other sites. For instance why does Flash not work on Adobe's own site? :confused:

    So, I try the Adobe tester and it doesn't work on Adobe's site.

    I open up the Market (Play) and I download Adobe Flash Player 11.

    I open up this page:

    Find version | Flash Player

    And it works.

    Flash works fine for me. Test works. Using the default browser and after installing Adobe Flash Player 11 on my x10.
