Can anyone play Amazon Prime Instant videos after installing Android on Touchpad?

I've tried the latest XRON and CM7. Both installed flawlessly without any
issues.

Unfortunately, I cannot seem to be able to play Amazon Prime Instant
videos, no matter what browser I use. (Dolphin Mini, Dolphin HD,
Firefox, Opera Mini, etc...)

The videos stream fine on my PC and laptop... and even on my Touchpad
when booting into the default webOS.

Any help appreciated!

I do have Flash installed. Other Flash-based videos play just fine.
(YouTube, for example)

Uninstall flash and install the hulified flash.

Use a web browser that has desktop mode.

There is an app pulled from the Kindle Fire but I can't get it to work on the Touchpad since their app checks for root and refuses to work on CM7. Besides for that it would work fine

I currently have the most recent XRON on my Touchpad.

The Amazon prime instant video issue was resolved
after I forced the removal of the built-in Adobe Flash
and Dolphin HD browser. After a reboot, I downloaded
the official Adobe Flash and Dolphin HD browser from
the Adroid Market. Works fine now...

How do you force the removal?

Don't have my Touchpad with me at the moment, but I think there's an
app called Titan-something... it's included in the XRON rom... it allowed
me to uninstall apps.

I tried that, but there is no.option to install from the marketplace. I'm stuck with no browser or flash now. Is there a way to force install?

Edit, just upload the API packages to your device and then you can install it.
