    I bought the wife her Galaxy Tab 10.1 last Xmas & it's been working perfectly fine. She's been able to view sites that require flash no problem.

    The other day she updated her version. I'm sure it said it was going to update TO version 3.2 but it turns out to be updated to 4.0.4.

    Anyway, since this update she's not able to view sites that require flash. She's told to install flash 9 but when she goes to the adobe site, it says that her device isn't supported.

    Obviously this is no good. One of the main reasons i bought the tab & that she uses it is flash websites, so at this rate she may as well have had an iPad.

    Is there any way around this?
    Is there a way to roll back the version of android she has on there to whatever there was previously? She's done a factory reset but that's sorted nothing.

    It'd be a laptop next as this limits her net usage massively.

    Use the Play Store app.
    Top right hand corner is a small arrow that points down.
    Click on that arrow.
    Next screen will show apps that are, or have been, installed on her tab.
    Top left hand corner, you'll see "installed", and "all".
    Click on all, and scroll down the list. You should see an entry for Flash.
    You can install it from there.

    Another alternative is to download it straight from Adobe archives. My version is 11.1.115.17 on my Gt-P7510. You'll need to scroll down to the Flash for Android 4.0 section. You'll see the various versions there.
