Default Get Firefox and Flash Working! Cricfree.tv = no ads!

After horsing around for quite a while side loading various flavors of firefox and flash finally got things to work. The "boat browser" worked with flash but there was no ad block support.Ended up just resetting the box. Here are the instructions to get firefox and flash working. Cricfree.tv plays perfectly with an ad free environment. Using the latest firefox beta for android.

1) Get firefox beta: https://wiki.mozilla.org/Mobile/Plat...d_Firefox_Beta

2) Get flash 11.1.115.47: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2139513

3) Side load and install both apk's. Launch adobe flash then select firefox and choose "always."

4) Once firefox is running click the circular button on the remote with the 3 horizontal lines, to the right of the home button. Choose Settings and Enable Plugins.

5) To block ads, access the Tools Menu (same way) then click Addons.

6) Install Adblock Plus and Bluehell Firewall. Both are required to stop the barrage of ads on cricfree.

7) For a "desktop" environment get the plugin Phony. The default "Request Desktop Site" option in firefox was not reliable.

8) That's it!

Not to rain the parade (seriously, good on you for figuring it out) but sideloaded XBMC + Sportsdevil add on will parse cricfree (and every other streaming site) and play them directly into your XBMC, no ad block needed as the ads never even factor into the equation. Just saying!
