    So there was a Flash update today. Anyone know if it fixed the problems the X2 was having with it?

    I don't know if my flash was updated today or not. How can you determine that? I have noticed that several of the websites that I visited yesterday that are heavy on flash and didn't function properly now display flawlessly. Also, I showed several youtube videos to friends tonight and none of those videos paused whatsoever, whereas a few days ago, some of them would pause periodically.

    What version is it? Mine still has 10.1 installed, but, if I search for "Flash" in the market, it shows 10.3 and says Update. This is weird, because if I open My Apps to check for updates, Flash isn't listed....

    Added: I guess it's not listed in My Apps because I never actually downloaded it.

    Perhaps Brady noticed Flash 10.3 and if not already updated from stock, thought the update was new.

    IMO, stay away from 10.3 and use what came with the device. At least until the GB update.

    I had 10.3 already. 10.3 got and update yesterday. I know this because I have my flash on Manual update, i have all my downloads on manual update. when i went to check to see if my apps needed any updates, my flash 10.3 had one.

    current version is 10.3.185.23

    heres a link to an article, thats talks about the release yesterday.

    Since you already crossed the 10.1 Flash line anyway, how about giving us a test if things have improved or not :)

    I definitely received a Flash update on top of the already installed 10.3 yesterday. The version number appears to be 10.3.185.23. Pocketnow describes it as a security update:

    I upgraded to 10.3 from the market, and haven't noticed a big difference. Maybe flash content loads just a bit faster.

    I upgraded mine and it seemed to act up a tad more, so I just uninstalled Flash altogether until a new better version comes out. Not like I really use it all that much anyways.
