But Chrome is obviously compatible since it works on my S4. Any ideas how to get around it? I'm stock rooted on my G Pad.
There's a KitKat compatible Flash Player .APK floating around the xda forums.. Basically some framework needed to use Flash was removed from Android in KitKat, that made it impossible to use Flash, but then a dev repacked this framework into Flash Player .APK itself and relinked the paths. So.. Basically you will have to search for that special .APK, (It is over in the Nexus 5 or Nexus 7 2013 forums somewhere.)
They recommend using Dolphin Browser and Dolphin Jetpack along with this .APK.. But I guess you could try other Flash compatible browsers such as Maxton, Boat and Holo Browser.
Who knows. It works at least for me.
Also Chrome isn't compatible with Flash, never have been and never will be. It must have been something else.. HTML5 or whatever they use these days. Chrome has never been able to play Flash content.
Hope this helps.
