I didn't think JB supported flash? In fact I'm positive it doesn't.

I wouldnt recommend a version from 4share either. If there isnt one for jellybean here or on xda then there wont be a version. JB isnt compatible with flash player.

Latest Android Flash Version always available here http://helpx.adobe.c...r-versions.html

Latest ICS version as of posting (works on JB on some devices but is not supported) Flash Player 11.1.for Android 4.0 (11.1.115.17)

Have you tried with Firefox browser? I think I saw someone say they got it to work on JB with Firefox.

If "JB doesn't support flash", please tell me why its working on my Nexus 7?

Please don't spread untruths.

Google never removed flash support from Android.

Install flash from adobe.com and then install a browser that supports flash, e.g. Firefox or an old version of DolPHin.

Peninsula, it is widely said that JB doesn't support flash, therefore it is not uncommon for people here to think that is the case.

"Please don't spread untruths" was unnecessary as you made it sound as though people are deliberately misinforming others. There is no need to be "that guy" who acts like a know it all.

As for Google removing flash, who said that? Nobody! Its adobe that no longer supports android 4.1. They even say so on the website and on the play store. Maybe *some* people took that as "flash wont work on jellybean"?

*** NOTE: FLASH PLAYER IS NO LONGER BEING UPDATED FOR NEW DEVICE CONFIGURATIONS. FLASH PLAYER WILL NOT BE SUPPORTED ON ANY ANDROID VERSION BEYOND ANDROID 4.0.x ***
While Flash Player remains on Google Play for installation on Android devices that are certified by the manufacturer, installing Flash Player on an uncertified device may result in unexpected behavior and can potentially destabilize your device. A list of certified devices can be found at http://www.adobe.com...ertifieddevices. Flash Player WILL NOT be supported on any device shipped with or upgraded to an Android version beyond Android 4.0.x

====
Is that clear enough?

Adobe Flash is not supported on any JB system. It might or might not work on some devices for anyone wanting to try. If it doesn't work properly Adobe will not fix it.

Let's keep this civil guys.

The fact is that while Adobe do not support Flash on 4.1 doesn't mean it won't run on *some* devices running 4.1 just that its not officially supported. So technically you're both right.

Having said that I stand by what I said earlier, Peninsula, you gotta chill. No need to call people liars.

It's not really a minor matter though. Has caused enormous amount of bad feeling against Adobe mainly as can be seen in the feedback for Flash Player from JB owners or prospective owners.

Fact is you won't be able to install Flash from the Play Store on JB and if you do manually install it, even if it works now, it could break at any time with future updates to the ROM or updates to Flash (and if you freeze at an old version you can be stuck with serious security holes).

Yes, I would install it (assuming it worked) but I wouldn't rely on it being there. I am assured of fixes as long as I am on GB or ICS.

Officially it is Not Supported on Android beyond ICS and that's it. If you try it and it works then that's a bonus. The official advice from Adobe is bluntly to remove Flash Player from JB if you have installed it. I think the decision stinks personally.

Of course in most of the world you can't install Flash from the Play Store even on supported devices anyway as Adobe have removed it. They had to restore access temporarily in some markets, including the UK, to allow the BBC and others time to come up with alternatives.

It was spreading information that was not true, so I stand by my statement. The very reason people keep saying flash won't work on JB is because people keep repeating the same thing.

Flash will work, its the Chrome etc browsers that don't support it. Someone said Google removed support, but it was Adobe that did that. Anyway, hopefully its more well known now that you can put flash on JB - we'll move on :)

I agree about moving on. When CM10 is fully functioning I'll give it a go myself.
