Default Flash Player APK (UPDATED)

Adobe has stopped allowing downloads for Flash Player on all devices running Jelly Bean, including the Nexus 7. This APK has been tested and works great on the Nexus 7 so far with 4.2.1.

APK File: install_flash_player_ics (1).apk - 4.49 MB

couple questions...

1. so will this allow flash to be used on chrome?
1a. if it doesnt work with chrome, what's the benefit of a standalone apk versus getting a browser that can use flash?
2. do you have to be rooted for this to work?

thanks!

1. No, chrome does not support flash.
2. You need the flash apk to be able to use flash in a browser that supports flash I.e. dolphin browser
3. No, you do not. Just make sure you go to setting, security, and click the unknown sources check box before you try to install the app.

You can't download it straight to your tablet. You have to extract it on a computer then transfer it to your Nexus.

Theres no default file browser installed so get something like Astro:

These are the instructions I followed, can't remember if I used the APK linked on that site or not, so to be safe use the one linked above.


PS : This five minute spam rule is annoying. (but can see why its here).
