This is a modified flash apk file that enables you to watch hulu on your rooted, froyo-running android device. It is my project to return to the community. Please only use this fix if you know what you are doing, as I am not responsible for anything that happens to your phone.

Instructions:
1.) UNINSTALL FLASH
2.) Download the .apk
3.) adb install flash_fixed.apk (or your preferred method of installing the .apk)
4.) Set your user agent to something other than a mobile device (search for ABOUT: DEBUG if you don't know what I am talking about)
5.) watch hulu!

Please Note: I cannot do anything to fix any lag or stuttering you may experience. One fix you may try is overclocking (at your own risk, of course).

Changelog:
April 22 - Updated to Version 10.2.156.12
November 13- Updated to Version 10.1.105.6
September 24- Updated to Version 10.1.95.2
August 26- Updated to Version 10.1.92.8
June 17- Updated to Version 10.1.72.7
June 09- Updated to Version 10.1.72.4

Enjoy!

needs to say that it's a newer version

Hulu is saying:

"Hulu requires Flash Player 10.0.22 or higher. Please download and install the latest version of Flash Player before continuing."

thanks!

thanks!
For those like me that are programming impaired, here's how to install an APK the easy way:
wXw.brighthub.cXm/mobile/google-android/articles/37151.aspx (replace the XXXX's as I'm a newb and restricted).
In the market look for "installer" by Jiang (It is one that works on Froyo).

Update: it seems 2B working for me. Dam Zulu, why do they make it so difficult to watch their commercials (and programming)?

As far as I know, it shouldn't require root. It does, however, require froyo obviously.

You said flash isn't installed JareduPS? How is flash not installed if you didn't get in error in step 3?

To those getting an error: try this. Go to settings -> application settings -> check the box next to "Unknown sources". This might actually require root. I am not familiar with non-rooted phones, sorry.

Wee! Yay! Thank You!
The tech blogs come here on their own, and the gig will be up again soon. In the mean time, let's keep our mouths shut on this one.

I do have FroYo, but I haven't got around to re-rooting after coming off Cyanogen.

I had the original 10.1 beta installed; uninstalled that, installed yours; went to browser, turned to android, then back to desktop, tried hulu & youtube, says that flash player isn't installed; uninstalled; downloaded installer, rebooted phone, reinstalled your apk, and thus-far no luck.

I think I'm going to try rooting it really quick (since I need to do that anyway) and see if that has any results.

Didn't work on my N1 which is non-rooted. After I installed it I only get "You need to upgrade your Adobde flash player" on Youtube. Worked fine again when I uninstalled it and installed the one from market again.

    [Fix] Hulu working using Flash 10.3.185.24 - June 18, 2011

    The following are hacks to get hulu.com working with the latest Adobe Flash Player 10.3.185.24 for the Android platform which consists of 2 methods, both methods basically is a hack of /data/data/com.adobe.flashplayer/lib/libflashplayer.so by hex editing AND 10,3,185,24 to WIN 99,9,999,99 so it will work with HULU. The reason for setting the version number to 99.9.999.99 is when the Windows version of AdobeFlash Player is updated, hulu won't stop working because the version number is not equal or greater than the current version which normally would require another hack.

    Method #1) Using the apk - uninstall any existing Adobe Flash Player from your device before installing the new apk. This will not work with some stock ROMs that are rooted such as the one on the Motorola DROID 1 A855 phone and HP eStation Zeen Tablet.

    Method #2) Replace the original library file with a hacked version of the library file which consists of the following steps and requires root:
    1) Download Adobe Flash Player 10.3.185.24 from Android Market
    2) Extract the zip file and copy libflashplayer.so to sdcard
    3) Copy libflashplayer.so from sdcard to /data/data/com.adobe.flashplayer/lib using root explorer and make sure the permissions for libflashplayer.so is rwxr-xr-x or chmod 755 libflashplayer.so.

    Method 2 is required for some stock ROMs that are rooted such as the one on the Motorola DROID 1 A855 phone and HP eStation Zeen Tablet as on those devices, flash sites will make it seem like Adobe Flash Player is not installed or will tell you that you need to upgrade your flash player version.

    Method 2 will not work for Android 2.3+ (Gingerbread) or Android 3.0/3.1 (Honeycomb) devices as the library files on any internal storage will be lost during the boot process and replaced with the one in the apk you are using where in this case, you will end up with the stock library file as your apk came from the market as can be seen in post #1059 in the thread:
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=919326&page=22

    While it is not related to Adobe Flash, it is related to the scenario above in which people are having problems with the Link2SD application which is a great app to allow apps to be installed and run on the SD Card.

    After you apply either methods above, to get this working, make sure to set your browser User Agent string to Desktop. With the stock Android browser and probably other browsers excluding the Dolphin browser, you might have to do this each time you run any flash based site including hulu.com or start the browser:

    To make it easier, all you need to do is download Adobe Flash Player 10.1.105.7 from market and replace the /data/data/com.adobe.flashplayer/lib/libflashplayer.so which is AND 10,1,105,7 hex edited to look like WIN 10,1,102,64 for HULU.

    1) Extract libflashplayer.so to sdcard
    2) Copy libflashplayer.so from sdcard to /data/data/com.adobe.flashplayer/lib using root explorer and make sure the permissions for libflashplayer.so is rwxr-xr-x
