Default How to get Flash working on HDX?

Anyone know how to view a swf file on the hdx? The flash apk (from xda) that works on the nexus doesn't work on the hdx.

These are not the droids you're looking for.

This is still unknown. Amazon somehow blocked the Adobe Flash Player from working on the stock ROM. Rest assured, it will work on custom ROMs once we obtain root access.

Need help? Hit me up on Twitter or Google+.

Of course, Amazon says its Adobe's fault. I counter-argued that flash worked fine on the Nexus 7 I just returned to get the HDX, but as typical, the rep just repeated the corp talking points & blamed Adobe as if I hadn't already shot that argument down.

1] 64gb kindle 2] possibly better screen 3] I'm already an Amazon prime member & use my phone & tablet to read kindle books more than any other use ...4] its new & I was curious, 5] just got the Nexus 26 days b4 & was within their 30 day return window. 6] if I don't like the Kindle, I have 30 days to return & re-buy a Nexus.

The only thing I dislike is Amazon's policy re Google Play & the prob $75 of appps I'm NOT going to re-buy ... so, this'll get rooted & eventually get Google Play working.

Yes, Flash most definitely works. You have to use a browser that supports Flash plugins, such as Firefox & you must install the Flash apk, which can be found in archive on Adobe's website or within many XDA forum threads.
