UPDATE 11/22/10 IMPROVED METHOD. Flash player mods remain even after reboot now (Thanks to Firon for taking this to the next step for user friendly ease, and getting this to stick after reboot).
FROYO ROMs ONLY!!!!! beta FROYO Roms for sure, we will cross the bridge for the official 2.2 update when we get there, should work though


1. Boot into Recovery (ClockworkMod). Flash the file from the link below and Reboot
2. Open market, navigate to adobe flash player, and uncheck automatic updates for adobe flash player.
3. Get your hulu on! Open hulu app - Watch hulu!

If you are having problems, uninstall Adobe Flash updates in the Market app and try again.

NEW SECONDARY METHOD
For those of you in which the v3 installer does not work/flash properly in the new ext4 clockworkmod recovery.
1. Download root explorer or equivalent and uninstall your curent flash player
2. Extract the install_flash_player.apk from the v3 installer.zip
3. Extract the 5 lib .so files.
4. Put the install apk you extracted into /system/app (yes, replace it)
5. Put the lib files into /system/lib
6. Reboot and install the hulu apk provided below

Tested and working on Bonsai4All Rom 4.0.0

I will work on getting this to stick. Shouldn't be too hard.


May I have permission to include this in my ROM? (Releasing tomorrow)

Oh yeah, no problem at all, that would be great actually! I found a ton of files floating around that I sifted through that seems to work well so far. So, they are not really mine to begin with. Good luck on getting this to stick in your rom. I tried to bake it into a flash.apk but no dice for me, as the browser kept saying I had no flash installed.

Yeah a tad annoying :P
I think I'll have to write a script to replace it on boot or repackage the adobe flash player apk. Though that might be against their terms and crap.

Yep, had the same idea - writing a startup script to pack it in. But by the time I got it to work, I had no more energy for the whole process of testing :P.

Uninstall any updates to the flash player, then push this to /system/app and chmod 644 /system/app/*
I don't think you even need to reboot for it to take effect, just restart the browser or something.
This has the modified .so, and it does work. You won't need to do any hackery on each reboot.
