[FONT="<font><font>Arial Black</font></font>"][/FONT]As announced directly from Adobe, Android will no longer support Flash Player to the latest version of the OS and then Google came home on devices not just the Flash Player.
Is not officially supported, but that does not mean that Flash Player can not be installed on our device with Android Jelly Bean 4.1.

NB Adobe Flash Player is not officially supported and therefore the speed of loading of Flash objects in HTML pages is not guaranteed at the highest levels. However, as tested, Flash Player behaves well with satisfactory results.

>Flash Player amended| Dowload (remove any previous installations of Flash)

In that case having Android 4.0 ICS is the best choice.
No wonder why I thought Android 4.1 will not have some same features that was in the previous Android versions.

Thanks for the official thread. Right now on CM9/ICS my Touchpad can play 720p youtube videos using flash without noticeable frame dropping. Of course youtube has its own app, but this was merely to benchmark it, and it does pretty well. When CM10/JB arrives I will have to see how well it does. The Android browser on a tablet feels nearly desktop grade especially with flash player, I'd hate to lose it. May be enough to keep me back on CM9.

i heard adobe stopped working on android flash player, so i dont think it matters if you have ics or gb rather than jb... adobe will probably remove the app from the market soon.

The flash player survived my upgraded from 4.0.4 yakju to 4.1.1. Flash content played okay in web, but flash videos lag on some sites. I don't know if it's already the best I could get.

I was googling for an Official APK and I found this Archive Flash page from Adobe:

helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/archived-flash-player-versions.html

The latest version for Android is Flash Player 11.1 for Android (11.1.102.59).

I downloaded it, but it does not seem to work. I have a Nexus Galaxy HSPA+ GSM with 4.1.1.

Do you know why this " official" archive, not so old, doesn't work? Is there something that makes the APK that you linked special to work?

Thank you for this thread and your efforts.

Well the one linked is currently the latest version (up to the time of this post ;)). Maybe it has some additional fixes which allow it to work.

I think my Flash on GNex survived the jump from ICS to Jelly Bean; however, my phone was acting crazy and froze many times while putting the PIN in and after the 3rd time... it reset. >.> I was so upset when re installing apps that I could not get Flash back. Are you still able to get Flash updates through a Jelly Bean Play Store? or Once you upgrade to Jelly Bean, then that's it, you are stock wit that version?

Does anyone happen to know if you can roll back an OTA without rooting?

inserted flash_player version 11.1.102.59.apk

Is there a reason why installing the APKs from the Adobe website won't work?
I also used ASTRO File Manager to back up the latest Flash app APK from my Gingerbread back-up phone and, it installs but won't work.

Kinda curious. Is there something that needs to be modified for them to work well as the one you posted?

Thank you in advance.

    I just installed Dolphin Beta from the Play store and the latest Flash Player from the first post of this thread.
    However flash still does not work!
    I also noticed that, in the settings of Dolphin under web content, flash is OFF and you cannot turn it on. It gives some warning about how flash will crash dolphin. I thought dolphin beta supported flash..

    Is there something I'm missing or something else I need to do?

    Thanks

    Edit: I'm using a Nexus 4

    Follow the Instructions

    1. Grab and install flashplayer

    2. Grab Dolphin Beta from Google Play.

    3. With you favourite file explorer navigate to: /data/data/com.dolphin.browser.lab.en/shared_prefs/com.dolphin.browser.lab.en_preferences.xml

    4. Make sure to close Dolphin Beta and delete com.dolphin.browser.lab.en_preferences.xml

    5. Start dolphin again, com.dolphin.browser.lab.en_preferences.xml will be recreated.

    6. With you favourite file explorer navigate to: /data/data/com.dolphin.browser.lab.en/shared_prefs/com.dolphin.browser.lab.en_preferences.xml

    7. Edit the line <string name="plugin_state">ON_DEMAND</string> to <string name="plugin_state">ON</string>

    8. Done. Now your com.dolphin.browser.lab.en_preferences.xml should look like this:

    TL;DR: Modify line containing <string name="plugin_state">ON_DEMAND</string> in /data/data/com.dolphin.browser.lab.en/shared_prefs/com.dolphin.browser.lab.en_preferences.xml to <string name="plugin_state">ON</string> or add it if it doesn't exist, then restart Dolphin Beta browser.
    Now Adobe Flash always loads automatically.
