    For those its not working for, did you do a cache wipe after upgrading?

    I did a factory reset,how do i do a cache wipe?

    found online

    To wipe the cache on a droid razr that is NOT rooted:

    1. Turn the phone off
    2. Press and hold the power button and that vol up AND vol down keys all at the same time untill it loads into the screen where you can select "recovery"
    3. Use the vol down key to highlight "recovery" then use the vol up key to select it
    4. Wait for it to boot up (not pressing anything) untill you see an Android and a ! Inside of a triangle.
    5. Once that screen appears, press the vol up and vol down key at the same time
    6. It should load the recovery menu, press the vol down key to get down to "wipe cache" then use the power key to select it
    7. When it is done, go to "reboot system now" and select it with the power key.

    And thats it, no root needed

    Yes but be really careful on that screen. Make sure your wiping cache.

    After doing this you may need to follow my instructions in the op again.

    Okay, wiped the cache, followed the instructions. Sad to say still unable to view South Park and others. The good news is that my browser no longer freezes after attempting to view the flash video and it fails. Personally I think Adobe just needs to pull its head out of its rear and accept it built a program and clientele that it needs to support until at least the majority of stuff out there is supported by its new program or other programs. But what do I know...

    The main site I use for testing is Crackle app/site.

    Really odd, it is working on a bunch of embedded videos where it wouldn't before, but I just tried syfy. It will play commercials, but not the show.
