General Somehow I viewed a Flash website on my Incredible even though I'm not using the 2.2 OTA?

    Trying to figure out what happened today... I was out riding in the car, and ended up looking up the website for Mini Cooper (miniusa.com). Everything worked just fine on the site, though I was a little intrigued by the presence of some loading animations because I haven't (to my knowledge!) done the required degrees of hacking to get Flash working. I thought that was part of Froyo only, and that 2.1 couldn't play Flash.

    Imagine my shock when said website was revealed, when I got home, to be flash-based. What the heck happened here?

    FWIW, my phone is rooted and running a Hydra kernel underneath the stock ROM, confirmed by checking my About Phone just now. I definitely haven't installed any app that I'm aware of that would explicitly enable Flash. So how did I do what I did?

  4. Try going to YouTube.com and seeing if you can watch videos directly on the site.

    I went to mini's site like you did and it worked for me, so next I went to youtube's full site like woop suggested and that work.

    Flashlite allow stuff like that to work. There are limitations though, and a lot of sites don't work properly on flash light or are slow.
