hi, try to give more information, such as which version of Android you currently have installed on your phone.

Lovech, Sofia

this method does not work for me. I have LG Optimus G PRO with the stock 4.1.2 version. I followed everything step by step three times and still I am not getting this to work, "no flash player installed"

Is there any way to make this work?? I really need flash player to watch live streams on my phone?



The easiest thing if you can't get flash is to install xbmc and the sportsdevil addon,
That way watch any live sports.

But try dolphin browser and dolphin jetpack dont forget to turn on flash on dolphin settings

I'm still having difficulties get flash up and running :s
I have tried several things...
Installed the latest archived version, allow unknown sources, ...
I've tried firefox beta, dolphin (made sure flas in on, in the settings), but still nothing.
I'm clueless :(
The device is a Samsun Galaxy Tab 3, running on adroid 4.2.2.

ANY help would be MUCH appreciated.

Please don't bash me. It may be that I'm missing something but I don't understand why many have problems running flash.
Want to play local .swf files? FlashFox is just one of the many options available (I use and old version of UC Browser). I play big sized, local .swf files, in full-screen mode. There was not a single swf I could not play on my phone.
Want flash online? FlashFox & Puffin can do all this. FlashFox can do it even if you don't have Adobe Flash installed on your phone.

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=mobi.browser.flashfox&hl=en_GB - This has to work (compatible with Jelly Bean, KitKat and Android L). I recommend you also install the auto full-screen add-on.

The only thing I'm struggling with, on my rooted S4 - Android 4.2.2, is to run local .swf files that use keyboard controls (for the online ones you should use Puffin Web Browser).

Also... why is people using a hacked flash version for Android JB? I thought this is KitKat only. I tried it and it made a mess in my phone.

LE: If anyone wishes, I can make a step-by-step tutorial on how to download .swf files on Android so you can play them later (no need for a computer). Of course, live streaming and protected content is excluded. The app is named "HTML ANALYZER for Download(ad)"
Just tell me what you need and I'll do my best to offer a solution.

Why do you use this website for your downloads? Isn't there a better way like linking directly from the adobe site? Because of this I am skeptical of the .apk :( :confused:

    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?


    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.
    There is a new version of Adobe Flash out
    Dang and this is all apple's fault.They killed flash.The world was a better place where apple was just only a fruit and not an OS
