couple questions...

1. so will this allow flash to be used on chrome?
1a. if it doesnt work with chrome, what's the benefit of a standalone apk versus getting a browser that can use flash?
2. do you have to be rooted for this to work?

thanks!

1. No, chrome does not support flash.
2. You need the flash apk to be able to use flash in a browser that supports flash I.e. dolphin browser
3. No, you do not. Just make sure you go to setting, security, and click the unknown sources check box before you try to install the app.

Ah OK I'm new to tablet just using my gs3 and rooted and flashed it many times already...this is a little different

Theres no default file browser installed so get something like Astro:

These are the instructions I followed, can't remember if I used the APK linked on that site or not, so to be safe use the one linked above.


PS : This five minute spam rule is annoying. (but can see why its here).

Try this already extracted apk,

Thanks for the apk. You can download it straight to your tablet if it was not gziped and just install it with a file manager... On another note, I didn't really see the point of putting it back on my tablet after downloading it to my PC since I already had the sdk installed.

Code:
adb install -r com.adobe.flashplayer-3f0d57a34bf0204acb2f9b310aa37ac7.apk

did the trick and installed it just fine for me..

Thanks, OP!

Now if we could get a working AOSP Browser for the N7 because I'm not too fond of Dolphin and the other 3rd party browsers.

Cheers,
Kermee

If you are using Dolphin as a Flash solution Do Not update to 8.6 which just came out. It completely removes the ability to use Flash for Jelly Bean even if you have it side loaded. It gives a message that they will no longer be supporting it for Android 4.1+

Sorry, I am not rooted. Maybe others aren't either.

    Adobe has stopped allowing downloads for Flash Player on all devices running Jelly Bean, including the Nexus 7. This APK has been tested and works great on the Nexus 7 so far with 4.2.1.

    APK File: install_flash_player_ics (1).apk - 4.49 MB

    Working Solution

    As above I found the best solution to be the flash player included in the thread and the Aurora Beta of Firefox - 16 something

    I have included both in my link below -

    You can't download it straight to your tablet. You have to extract it on a computer then transfer it to your Nexus.
