    Now that Adobe has announced that 10.1 is not coming until "sometime during the second half of the year", do you think there will be an effort to port Flash Lite 4 to a rom for Droid? Flash Lite 3 works great on my Archos 5 (3430 device too). Since Flash lite 4 is more optimized, it should work very well on Droid (especially when OC'd).

    Flash Lite 4 is shipping on Incredible and the EVO (both Snap chipsets though).

    hopefully someone ports it onto the droid as an .apk like the htc IME and the launchers from the nexus one

    I wonder how much Adobe leveraged drivers specific to Snapdragon for Flash Lite 4? I would hope they made this like Flash 10.1 and designed for both chipsets (Omap & Snap). In regards to 10.1, if you read the Adobe forums, it suggest later, rather than earlier in 2nd half.

    BTW, typing "still" wrong is bugging me.

    This is kind of ridiculous. I mean as long as it is in 2010 w/e but I mean I am the biggest apple opponent rofl but there might some sort of credence to them saying adobe was lazy and slow. I mean here they have announced and date, first half of 2010 as posted on even the phones, and now they yank it away and start the whole Motorola thing of "soon". I mean they are starting to look a little slow and why does the droid not have flash lite as you say? Well all I know is I get a new phone in November so I hope they have either droid 2 or incredible 2 with full flash 10.1!!

    Interesting...I'm still holding out hope though that it will come sooner. Adobe has always said Flash 10.1 would come to Droid/N1 first. He never said that NO smartphone would see flash until the second 1/2, just "those types of devices"...Pretty general, though I have to admit, I think it's probably more likely that we won't see it till Q3/4... :mad:

    Yeah I'd 2nd that. There's no reason flash can't be on the Droid right now. Apple may actually have a point here.........finally.

    We can hope that Flash Lite 4 was designed for both the Omap and Snapdragon (first two devices with it are Snapdragon devices) and one of the fine rom modders adds it to a future rom release. Not sure if it is easy as an apk. It may be part of the browser, or so embedded that is might as well be.

    Flash 10.1 is late summer (at best), based on Adobe forum threads. There will be a lot of ticked off G1, Cliq, Eris, Touch, TP2, etc owners, since the 7200 series chipset will not work with it. ARM 8 and newer only (need the dedicated GPU).

    How did you get Flash Lite 3 on your Motorola Droid? I have the STOCK 2.1-update1 can I get it on that? I would love to have some sort of Flash support even if its not perfect. Thanks!

    He never said he had it on his droid. He said he had it on his archos.

    According to their site it is coming in the first half of 2010. If you try to download flash for the Droid it used to say it was not available for you device, now they put up the statement about being available the first half of this year. Must be getting closer.
