    Any idea on when a FlashPlayer will be available for the Moto Droid?
    Adobe said "first quarter of 2010". That turned into "first half of 2010".
    News flash: It's the end of May. Where's the Flash? :mad:
    I also read that it will be built into Android 2.2. Is that what I have to wait for?

    Well, for the N1, it's not "Built in", but the app is available on the market. We won't see it until a baked 2.2 rom or the 2.2 OTA arrive...

    That is EXACTLY what we all said about the official 2.1 OTA release. ;)

    Flash Player beta has already been released by Adobe. It requires APIs that are included in Android 2.2.

    You will have Flash Player whenever you get either a 2.2 ROM if you are rooted, or the 2.2 OTA update is released.

    There's no more to it than that.

    isn't there enough speculation on this in like 20 other Flash threads?

    Hello! Obviously there isn't! :D

    Motorcycle, car and truck forums have oil threads.
    Guitar forums have string threads.
    Amp forums have tube threads.
    And DROID forums have Flash threads. It's the circle of life Simba.

    I guess that cool "Here are the similar threads we found:" forum plugin that instantly shows similar threads like the one your about to start as your making yours... just gets glossed over by people :)

    You people are so annoying, learn to use SEARCH FUNCTION or leave and never come back to this forum.

    The people that get upset over these questions are far more annoying than the people asking them. There isn't that many new threads here a day, and its not like he bamboozled you into coming in, the title clearly states what he was asking.

    1. there is a search function, could have answered his question
    2. there is function on the forum that shows other threads, similar to the one your about to start, so that maybe you will not start another thread on a topic where the answers already exits
    3. this has been discussed dozens of times elsewhere
    4. it is lazy to just start a new thread
    5. tons of extra threads on the same topic bloats the database and arguably slows the system down and uses more resources as more users spend time and server resources addressing these redundant threads
    6. it is more annoying that one would defend lazyness in light off all of these points

    now, my work is done here ;)

    You people are so annoying. Dude get over your self. You are annoying, you can tell by the title what the thread is about, if you don't want to read it don't read but quit whining about it. You have been here for a whole 137 posts and you are going to tell people to leave and not come back because they do not follow your personal behavior standards. Get real. Got start your own forum and when you get a new member, just go right ahead and ban them for asking something that has already been asked. See how many members you end up with.

    Adobe should at least release Flash Lite 4 in the market, since it is 10.1 compliant and only needs 2.1's resources. Not sure if Sense is part of that or not though, since only HTC products have Flash Lite 4 (Desire, Inc and EVO).

    Getting a rooted, well working and stable 2.2 on Droid will be easier said than done, since only snapdragon devices currently have 2.2 and Motorola are not known to be speed demons with updates- even for a leaked beta. You need a 3430 api/driver based version. There currently is only one Android 3430 device- the Droid.

    No bolt-ons to 2.1 will work either. People are incorrect by thinking the change from 2.1 to 2.2 is not as big as 1.6 to 2, etc. The dalvik layer was rewritten and api access to hardware was changed (for the better in both counts). Not a small update at all.

    Wrong answer Sparky.
    It's inane self indulgent diatribes like yours that " arguably slow the system down and use more resources."
    And you don't really know me well enough to call me lazy.
    But from reading your completely useless reply I KNOW that you are an...............
    Well you can finish the sentence.
    Thanks for your help. Oh, do you want me put press that official thank you button too? So you can show all your little friends that you got another gold star?

    it was unnecessary for Lock-N-Load to call you names and use that tone but I understand where he is coming from. This forum has been plagued by people asking the same question over and over again. Especially questions that are answered with very little searching of the forums. Even a simple google search would have told you that flash is a market app that needs 2.2 api's to use hence when we get 2.2 we will get flash (unless flash somehow only works for the n1). but the truth is no one really knows until it happens.

    just curious, please quote me where I "called him a name"? however, he clearly calls me an ******* - so, I think you need to flip flop that part of your answer.

    anyway, thanks for nicely saying what I said, I have never said my delivery is the best, nor do I apologize for it. my points are right on, it was/is a lazy move as the system makes it so easy for you to see your about to post a topic that already has been covered.
