I have the same problem, even after wiping data and cache, uninstall, reinstall flash. For me this is no solution.

G'day...

I have exactly the same problem as described in the early posts. I have tried reinstalling the Flash player repeatedly with no success. I get similar symptoms in both the stock browser and in Dolphin.

I think I'll stop trying to fix it for a while before I throw the damn thing through the window.

My unit is an un-rooted TF101G and I only got ICS update sent out last week - I thought they would have ironed out all the bugs by now. Right now all I want to do is go back to Honeycomb...

I had the problem when I switched to ICS Gnufabio ROM. Flash and even youtube stock player would cause problems in HD fullscreen. Videos were unwatchable. I switched to CM9 ROM - the same thing.

However, since flashing Megatron 1.0.3, flashing gapps again and with TestyMeh 1.0 kernel running @ 1.2 it suddenly started to work!

I've been experiencing the same problem.

I've found that it sometimes works if I go into full-screen mode first, and then plug in the HDMI cable. It all goes black for a few seconds, but then the video shows up in fullscreen on my TV.

As for the freezes, usually I have to close the browser, kill it, open it (and sometimes repeat several times before I can even navigate back to the page), then fire up the video again. But I've found that sometimes I can just power off the device (ie tab power button to turn off display), then turn it back on after a couple seconds, and video starts playing again correctly.

What a pain, though. Never had these problems with Honeycomb.

Hi all, wondering if anyone found a solution to this issue? I'm on stock rom 4.0.3 (no root), YouTube play fine for me as it's html5 but any online content that uses flash player lagging badly. Will HD rom fix this issue ? Thanks
Ps: tried full wipe and installed latest version of flash player, no luck though.

Yes and no - Adobe has dropped flash support for Android. The latest versions were for 4.0 in August 2012.

HOWEVER - You can still sideload flash. First, go to Settings - Security - Unknown Sources. Tick the box. Next, go to the Adobe Archives and download the latest version for Android 4.0. After it downloads tap on it to install it.

Flash works well in the stock Browser, Firefox, Firefox Beta and Boat Browser. Dolphin has disabled flash support for JellyBean last time I checked.
I know I sideloaded flash and it only worked when I got the right version, and to tell you the truth I haven't a clue whether it is still working as I am on KatKiss KitKat 4.4.v22 now and don't use flash pages much. I do remember a lot of people talking about sideloading Flash as the only way to get it to work.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for your reply, this is exactly what I have as my setup. Flash is side-loaded but none of the ics version work. I mean they do but lagging badly. Prior the update to ics I was using flash side-loaded with no problems
