mine kept failing too update but a couple of days ago it updated itself fine.
Good post to those who've lost flash on Android but sideloading a apk is not a hack its just another way of installing an app. People don't get scared off by the hack your device line!
Oh thanks I'll try it
Link to 11.1.115.34. Newer version as the article is a few weeks out of date.

I second that. Initially I thought I had to root my android but when reading the article I saw its a regular sideloading.

Yes you will have to, I have had this device since launch (july ish). However guys. Go to APKTOP and you can download flash from there. All APK's are taken from the Google market so its just a simple download. Copy to device. Use a file manager and install. Make sure you untick allow unknown sources in your settings or else it won't install. I've done it on ALL my android devices and im glad flash is restored!

Does any one know how to make Adobe flash work on old model android ARM 6 processor phones?
Any 4.2 walkaround? It worked fine for me on 4.1...
you can always bookmark this page:
helpx.adobe.com/fla…tml
This has the latest version and all the previous versions for 4.x and older devices 2.x or 3.x if you are not on ics/jelly bean and on a device Adobe never marked as supported.

I have no reason to believe this page will not continue to be updated as I installed 11.1.115.27 off that page and now 11.1.115.34 is available on it so any new updates should appear on it also.

As for 4.2 try installing dolphin browser and the latest version of flash as described above, Most of the issues seem to be the browser not liking the plugin rather than flash itself. Report back how you get on as I don't have 4.2 myself.

Have you tried - For Android 2.x and 3.x, version 11.1.111.24 (should work) use ES File Explorer File Manager to unpack install_flash_player_pre_ics.apk

P.S. I tried it and it works fine.

I must be doing something wrong on my nexus


i think its only for ice cream sandwich.
your nexus most likely runs 4.1 jelly bean.
also has to be through browser not chrome
thanks :-)
I think I've managed get it work on my 4.2.1, so it maybe work on 4.1? I take no credit as I found it on XDA Forums!

Only tried with the Dolphin browser - the browser has stopped supporting flash when you try & enable it via settings but workaround below seems to do the trick.

First sideload Flash as per this post, then using a file manager which shows the root directory (I use Solid Explorer) go to ....

system root/data/data/mobi.mgeek.TunnyBrowser/shared_prefs/mobi.mgeek.TunnyBrowser_preferences.xml, you need to delete this file, I cut it to somewhere else just in case but everything seems fine without it. As a check if you go to setting within Dolphin > Web Content > Flash Player it should state Always On.

As a website check I loaded up Bet365 site (full site) to check & it loads no problem - normally would come up with an error stating it requires Flash. I'm sure there's loads more sites to check rather than Bet365!!

Hope this helps - like I said before I found this on XDA (can't remember the link though, but a quick search on there should bring it up).
