Default How to install Flash and Java???

I've heard this is possible for the Note Pro but cannot find an actual working process for either.

Any luck out there for others?

There's a thread here somewhere on using a hacked flash apk with dolphin and jet pack. Works great. As for Java? No idea.

Working java binaries (runtime environment, not a browser plugin...) were distributed with android apktool:
https://code.google.com/p/apktool/
However since kitkat i cant get it to work.The binaries structure is very messy and it would take some time to catch how to launch java vm in an appropriate way, ie. letting it use associated so libs. Didnt have time yet.
They are also seem to be redistribuded with AIDE app. Didnt checked out that yet, too.
Above may let you execute jar applications from command line.
Browser plugin not available atm.

I have several java-based games I play online that are not working now.

I followed the instructions and it works. However, flash playback seems to be slow. Anybody has an idea why?

Because Adobe do not care about Android Flash users.
KitKat version is working at all thanks to community, not to the developer... Adobe depreciated Flash some time ago (a year or something?). It's not optimized, that's it.
It's not a drama after all, as the whole world seems to be switching to HTML5...
PS: you may want to try turning on GPU acceleration in developer options...
PS2: you may also want to try Puffin Browser from Google Play store, which has newer version of flash included (and really works!), however I cannot guarantee if the performance will be better...
