    Ok, not sure if this is the correct forum, but I have a MetroPCS LG MS690 Optimus M phone. I have the latest software update to 2.2.2 now. My freezing/rebooting issues seem to be fixed. However, I still cannot view any websites with flash content, because none of the web browsers I can install on here seem to support flash. And The firefox browsers wont install ont his phone either. I am getting frustrated, because there are numerous web sites I need to visit that run flash, and I am not sure what to do. the stand alone flash players do not work for this, as the fllash content is in the web pages, and you cannot download the flash content from the web pages and view them. Any ideas?

    OK, I downloaded the file, stuck it onto the phone, used a file manager and installed it, then rebooted the phone. It still just shows a placeholder where any flash content is. Is there a particular browser this needs to work with?

    You need to be running a CM7 rom before you can use the flash player I posted. The flash player works good with the stock metro browser.

    Yes. You need to flash CWR first, do a back up of your current rom (In case of an "Rut Roh!" :D) then you can flash CM7.
