    So it won't be available for the stock ROM, but is it possible for Flash to run on an overclocked ROM, such as Velocity or Punisher when new versions come out? As far as I know, the cpu architecture is different and the cpu speed is less than the minimum requirements. But it seems that an overclocked ally might have a chance of running it.

    No flash support. None. Zero. Zilch. Nunca. Nada. Adobe does not support the processor used in the LG Ally. Until and unless they write a version for it, it is highly unlikely we will ever see Flash support for our phone.

    I would love to be proved wrong regarding this in the future. I'd like to be able to have Flash as well.

    While you are getting results emailing major corporations, why don't you email google for me ask them if I can have a job doing nothing for a salary of 1 million dollars a year?

    Our processor is outdated and will never be supported for flash.

    I don't speak for GRZLA, but I'd bet it's because despite the fact that Adobe has made it clear that we won't be running Flash on the Ally, new threads pop up about it constantly. Don't take it personally.

    Exactly, us devs are so fed up with seeing flash threads pop up all over the place even after users have been told there is NO flash support on the ally.

    So let me say that again....

    THERE IS NO FLASH SUPPORT FOR THE LG ALLY

    Zip, Zero, None, Zilch, No, Nein, Cero, Null, Nula, нулю, ...etc... You get the point.......

    NO CHANCE. You could overclock the Ally to Onemillioninfinity MHz and Flash would still not work on the Ally.

    There will be NO flash on the Ally!!!!! It has been answered with a no every time it's been asked. Our processors architecture does not support flash. That cannot be changed!

    I'm thinking it might not have been the best time for sarcasm. Sorry bout that had a bad day. But anyway maybe its about time we try to change the whole freakin processor. Lol Hmmm... I wonder if that can be done?!? Think I might just have to do some research.

    What is the best time for sarcasm?

    Also, I was wondering if flash on the Ally is laggy or stutters.:thinking: That would suck if it's laggy because I love flash games.

    The problem is that Flash is written specifically for a certain range of hardware and the Ally's processor isn't in that range of hardware. So it would be like trying to install Flash on a lawn mower. :) It just won't work.

    :eek: Did you REALLY just go there, AGAIN??? :eek:

    Let's try to answer this by example: How would Flash run on a lawn mower? Would it be laggy or stutter? No - because it won't even run on a lawn mower... or on an Ally. The hardware is not supported by the program.
    Hence the repy: No, Non, Nunca, Nada, Zero, Cero, etc...
