    Ok, so I was under the impression that flash was preinstalled on the Vibrant. Silly, right?
    Anyone tried using froyo? Does it work ok? Any issues?

    Help please :)

    Based on my research it does have flash lite preinstalled but not full flash 10.1. That will come with Froyo which is slated to be an OTA update for us.

    I haven't used froyo but I can say I've seen a few videos of the browser in action with froyo on a Nexus one. It kept up with and occasionally beat the iPhone 4 while rendering the flash elements that the iPhone just ignored. The nexus specs are lower than the vibrants so I'm gonna guess its going to absolutely fly.

    Here's a link to the article that has the videos embedded.

    Cyanogenmod is working on Froyo for the Galaxy S phones.... Since the source code was released a while back, they can properly build a 2.2 Froyo ROM for these phones....

    There are pros and cons to having flash. Sure, it gives us the full browsing experience and then some, but keep in mind that you will now see all of the annoying ads on websites.

    Thats why you hit the market and download an ad blocker.

    I never saw ads on my old Droid when I flashed to 2.2 ;)

    Flash is (officially) available on Froyo only.

    Whether or not it works with Eugene's Froyo build, I'm not sure.



    Also, if you just want Flash Video, SkyFire browser will play them on most sites. (The old 25% bug was fixed quite awhile back)
