    It is msm7627 like ally but all apps only contain mdpi not hdpi. Once kernel source comes that will be helpful and maybe the opensource froyo bits too. Dont get your hopes up though.

    I played with the Vortex some at the VZ store and I tried going to Market to see if I could Download Flash 10.1
    It gave me more Flash options than the Ally but no true Flash 10.1 Download.

    My conclusion thus far was that somehow they have blocked that phone from being able to download it. I guess because the processor "cant handle it"

    I did however check the OS and it definately said Android 2.2 So it is some version of Froyo.

    Flash isn't supported by the arm v6 architecture. which is what is in the ally/vortex processor

    Ok well what about the Iphone that has the hacked app called frash.
    What this does is allows you to watch the flash after it has been downlowaded to the phone. Similar to a regular video.

    Obviously this has its limitations.... But it is still cool. Could we maybe get some kind of app that would do this?

    I do know that Frash originally came from Froyo and was ported to the Iphone.

    Man All I want to do is watch my Strong Bad Email on the go.
    Is that too much to ask..... :confused: LOL

    Stupid flash

    On topic, anyone working on getting a port? I know drellisdee had a working 2.2 kernel, seems like this phone could provide the missing pieces? Just curious if anyone has begun giving it a shot.

    The Vortex is an mdpi device. The Ally is an hdpi device. Porting the ROM over wouldn't work correctly. As for a kernel, once they release source there MAY be some hope. Just don't hold your breath.

    What!!!
    How do you know you have Flash on your phone?
    No offense but the link above did not help. It does not work.

    It shows that you have Flash but yeah just try and go to a flash site.

    That Dog Dont Hunt Brother.

    I mean I am not trying to be a butt. It just doesnt work.

    +1 on this, skyfire works on some sites that use simple "video only" flash like justin.tv but not hulu

    yeah I realised it only works sometimes after playing with it for a bit... I guess I was just initially very excited when I went to NVidia's home page and the flash animations actually worked... sorry about that!!

    No reason to be sorry

    Were all learning here.
    Looking back.... what I said sounds pretty harsh.
    I should be the one that says Sorry.:)
