Guys, what Adobe Flash version do you use? It's been modified to work with the OSD I think I read? Anyone tried it on the Razr I? (I am willing to, got hold of a Razr I today - am deciding whether to keep it or not!)

...which is the update.zip linked here I presume?

http://www.modaco.co...ctly-for-noobs/

Edit: looks like I am barking up the wrong tree here aren't I, it's not going to be as simple as finding a modified apk file... In the update.zip I see a 9MB libflashplayer.so file in system\lib\plugins\com.adobe.flashplayer, which I have no idea what to do with. And a FlashPlayer.apk file which is only 80KB from system\app

I think Motorola chose not to include flash because it's no longer supported for Android.

We're not winning are we...

I hope the BBC do change their minds and make the iplayer compatible for us... Or Adobe...

I have xolo ics on mine and the app dont work due to the media player not installing.

However I just installed ics browser+ and set it as desktop in settings and the desktop version of iplayer works perfect on this browser. It says not compatible on stock browser and chrome says download flash when set to desktop view.

Thought this would help those wanting to use iplayer and thought you couldn't.

Thanks for the heads up. How's the video quality through the browser, any good?

I would add Android updates and BBC iplayer to the list. Many big Android manufacturers promised better and faster updates for 2012 - and did anything change? No.

I still cant get iplayer to work in the browser despite trying all the suggestions in this thread. It keeps coming up with the 'you need to install flash' message each time.

Is there anything else I can try?

Yes 11.1 is installed but strangely enough it was disabled for some reason. I enabled it and it's all working now, thanks.
