    from what i understand and have read it doesnt work on the ascend and most phones with android 2.1. If your using it so you can watch videos in browser you should try Skyfire before it turns into a paid app.

    Just looked up Skyfire. Does it revolve around facebook? Reading the description for it, it seems that facebook is all that it is about. I don't do facebook and have no use for facebook. Besides Flash, is there any other advantages to Skyfire?

    no, it doesnt revolve around fb. it has an icon for it built in but thats really all.

    other +'s include beter download management. if stock cant dl/d it skyfire may be able to. runs a little faster too because the info is compressed on their servers before being sent to you. not all grainy like some other browsers either.

    they have 2 version, one for eclair and the other one for 2.2 froyo, i think you might have flash the wrong version, 2.2 has a different setup than 2.1.

    Installation for Froyo+ 2.2.1 users:

    Easy way, using a PC:
    1. Download files provided.
    2. open the .zip of your ORIGINAL stock Froyo+ 2.2.1 ROM.
    3. Take framework-res.apk and paste it into the zip.
    4. Overwrite the original file.
    5. Boot into recovery
    6. Select "update from zip on sdcard"
    7. Choose your NEW Froyo+ zip file you added the apk into.
    8. Select update.
    9. Boot into 2.2
    10. Your theme should now be applied.

    HARD way, using your phone:
    1. Open root explorer.
    2. Find the copy of your original Froyo+ zip.
    3. Long press, Extract all.
    4. Place framework-res.apk into the proper folder.
    5. Rezip
    6. Apply through CWM
    7. boot, tada.

    IMPORTANT: 2.2.1 version seems to have a bug where the text will not turn white.

    Yeah - sorry, no.

    Flash is copyrighted, so we frown on download links outside of the Market or similarly-accepted legal paths.

    (Looks like the problem's solved tho. ;))

    IMPORTANT PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT - I'm only skimming these threads, so if this is out of whack, apologies in advance.

    Many of us played Flash tricks before getting our official 2.2/Froyo. Here's the deal - if you're doing Flash tricks and you're not on a real 2.2/Froyo, then ensure you've cleared data and uninstalled this before getting your Froyo update (custom rom or Huawei official) - trust me, if this applies to you, I've just saved you a WHOLE WORLD of pain. ;) :)

    I'm going to step in here and say that Flash 10.1 WILL NOT WORK ON THE ASCEND. You may download and install it, but the hardware requirements for it are higher than what the Ascend has. I believe it's been stated all over that it requires an ARM7 CPU with as high as 1Ghz speeds, while the Ascend has an ARM6 at a stock 528Mhz.

    Trying to force a phone not known to be Flash-capable into running Flash.

    I know flash player can work on this phone because I tried IGN Advertisement before upgrading my ROM using the Skyfire browser and it was a no go.

    After downloading "flash_for_21.apk" IGN's site played everything under the sun for me.

    So now I know it's possible to install flash player.
    It's just hit or miss for it to actually work, due to the fact its not a supported phone for Adobe compatibility list.

    Now I'm using Dolphin with Gingerbread and its a no go. (Might try Skyfire again)
