IMPORTANT NOTICES:

- Unfortunately Flash Player is broken in Android KitKat 4.4.

- Google Chrome browser is NOT compatible with Flash Player. You must use an alternative browser with flash support like Firefox, AOSP, Dolphin, Opera, etc...

- On October 8th 2013 Adobe has ended Flash Player updates for Android. Here is the statement:
On September 10th 2013, Adobe released Flash Player 11.1.111.73 for Android 2.x and 3.x and 11.1.115.81 for Android 4.0.x in keeping with statements made in our publicly available Flash Roadmap. This is the final update release of Flash Player for the Android operating system.


It can't be installed from Google Play in our Nexus⁴ because:
*** NOTE: FLASH PLAYER IS NO LONGER BEING UPDATED FOR NEW DEVICE CONFIGURATIONS. FLASH PLAYER WILL NOT BE SUPPORTED ON ANY ANDROID VERSION BEYOND ANDROID 4.0.x ***

While Flash Player remains on Google Play for installation on Android devices that are certified by the manufacturer, installing Flash Player on an uncertified device may result in unexpected behavior and can potentially destabilize your device. A list of certified devices can be found at http://www.adobe.com/go/certifieddevices. Flash Player WILL NOT be supported on any device shipped with or upgraded to an Android version beyond Android 4.0.x

Enjoy.

Yea you can install any third party browser that supports flash. Aosp browser can run flash too
Yes, browsers like AOSP, Dolphin, Firefox or Opera (browser, not mini)... but not Chrome... But there are more uses for Flash Player; for instance. I use it to view TV channels over WiFi and believe me, our Nexus 4 can play video flash content really smooth :good:

I haven't tested it with games, but I guess that will run smooth too.

Just tried watching something in full screen and the videos just stop because it goes to sleep and I can't figure out how to disable that....
