    I just installed Froyo on my rooted droid, and every time I try to download Flash player from the market, it doesn't come up, and when I try to download it from the Adobe website, it redirects me to the market on my phone and says "invalid location" so I'm wondering if android is doing this on purpose or am I just ******ed? or is something just wrong with my update now lol. btw my phone does say version 2.2

    You have to download the apk file and install it with astro or another file manager program.

    Well I already found the link, but it's weird, because I remember finding it on the market, before I upgraded to Froyo, and I went to download it and it said it couldn't due to me not having 2.2, but it seems like when I go to the adobe ( Adobe Labs - Downloads: Flash Player 10 Prereleases ) website and click on the android part, it directs me to the place on the market, but says its invalid.

    Well I just tried skype as well and its no where to be found and the skype website sends me to the market just like adobe, I'm just wondering if I'm the only one who this is happeneing to, it really doesn't make sense for either of them not to show up.

    You can't "launch" flash...you just have it. Go to a web page that has flash elements and it should be working IF you have a 2.2 ROM on your phone.

    Try this one as it is a good "starter site" to test things...but it does link to some great sites like CNET TV, Kongregate (flash games)

    Adobe Flash showcase for mobile

    Edit...you caught your mistake before I posted...still good info for anyone that needs it ;)
