    Actually I was premature. It only works on about 1 in 10 videos I tried. I'm going to keep the link up b/c it did install after a couple of tries and maybe someone else can tweak it a bit to work more consistently.

    Sorry if I got anyones hopes up.

    Also I uninstalled my stock browser and am having trouble getting it back maybe someone might have luck with installing the version of flash above and using the stock browser.

    I'm pretty sure you had luck because you were using dolphin, which enables playback of some flash content.

    Yeah I did this too. It of course installed... but everytime I tried to go to Strong Bad emails it just closed the browser. It Closed all of my browsers. The original, Dolphin, and Skyfire.

    Sorry neightwulf didn't mean to make you so upset I read that thread when it started thanks though. You might have noticed that that was an install/workaround for android 2.1 not 2.2 ally so I though there might be some hope even though I retracted most of my statement only a few minutes after i wrote it.
    But really your Sarcasm and Negativity did a lot to help put me in my place.
    You truly are the best.

    I'm not sure where you found sarcasm in that post.

    Didn't upset me either; it's just that every couple weeks or so another thread pops up about Flash and it gets old. Nothing personal.

    For what it's worth, a hardware limitation prevents current Flash builds from running on our processor. It doesn't matter if you're running 2.2, 2.1, 3.x, etc.; the processor is the problem, not the OS version.

    Exactly!!! Our phone will not fully support flash until and if Adobe decides to make and release a build that will support our processor's architecture. It might just happen but don't get your hopes up too much.

    Don't see any reason why they should, our processor is old tech. No use in a huge corporation porting software to hardware that is going to disappear in less than a year.

    FWIW I have been able to watch some Flash videos using Skyfire, but I think it actually converts them to some other format first. Better than not seeing them at all I guess. :)
