After upgrading my HTC One from 3.4 to 4.4.2 I am missing flash support in the HTC browser. I know the workaround using Dolphin of FF, but I prefer the HTC browser.
My question is: Do you think it is possible to extract the 4.3 browser´s apk (and obex file?) and to install it on an HTC One running 4.4.2.
Is there a chance to get flash support back this way?
Thanks for your opinion,
Randolph

If your problem is flash then install flash apk from internet then open browser settings tick on enable flash

But this is exactly my problem! But after updating from 4.3 to 4.4.2 I can not find this checkbox to enable flash in the HTC browser on my HTC One M7... It is missing -
Do you think I have installed the wrong flash apk?

I installed the package recommended for Dolphin Browser but it is not recognized in htc browser - definitly no checkbox to enable flash...
Any chance to get this fixed? How did you get flash running - what .apk did you use??

Thanks in advance,
Randolph

By the way, the top-bar on your screenshot looks nice and interesting and different to mine: data rate, htc logo, power percentage - but no battery icon...

Really too bad, that HTC stock browser displays the flash checkbox, but doesnot play flash ...
Flash will be around for some years and the kick it off portabel devices.
I presume, there seems to be no generic solution to bring back flash without switching to an other nrowser like Boat, Dolph or Forefox...

Anyway thanks for help & testing
