    If you already had it before upgrading to Jellybean it is still there and works fine. You can't simply download it from the store after that as it is no longer supported.

    BTW, I friggin' hate clowns!

    You need to complain to Adobe. This has nothing to do with Android. Adobe dropped support.

    It looks like you're not going to be buying anything then. Adobe abandoned development of Flash for any mobile platforms, in favor of HTML5. I'm not sure where you've been for the past year, but this isn't news.

    This isn't Google's or any OEM's fault. This was an Adobe decision.

    You do have the option of side-loading the Flash app and using it with a 3rd-party browser like Dolphin, but there will be no support for it. If something breaks due to an Android update, don't expect Adobe to fix it.

    You'll find the same situation on any other mobile OS. Blame Adobe. They're no longer developing Flash for mobile devices.

    Like I said, blame Adobe (the makers of Flash). They decided to stop developing Flash for mobile devices. You can't blame Google for another company's decision to go in a different direction. You can't blame Google for not officially supporting something that has been abandoned, from a development standpoint, by its creator.

    Quite frankly, I'm glad that Flash is dying out. It is a major resource hog and not suitable for mobile platforms that need less power-hungry, resource-intensive apps. Eventually, websites will catch on to using HTML-5. Many already do.

    I'm not a Hulu user. If you want someone to be mad at, complain to Hulu that they haven't kept up with the technology available, since they're still using Flash instead of HTML-5 on their website. The real issue is that Hulu, and other media-serving sites like it, don't want you accessing their content from your mobile device because of the licensing agreements that they have with the studios that provide the content. So they won't make the site mobile-friendly until those agreements allow them to.

    The fact that Android, as a platform, offers you a way to get around those license agreements, should garner your praise, not your disdain. Focus your anger on the money-grubbing studios and the short-sighted websites that haven't gotten with the times.

    ...and good luck switching to the iPhone. If you think it will be any easier to digest Flash content on THAT platform, you're delusional.

    Archived Flash Player versions

    Less complaining about no flash on your android, more clicking the link provided to sideload flash.

    Seriously, there's really NOTHING to complain about, as flash works great on Jelly Bean 4.1 and 4.2. Just don't expect fast loading speeds with large flash files.

    So I came across this thread while doing a google search of how to load Flash on to my new Galaxy Tab2 10.1 ... and I don't know if I'm missing something, but even after going to Adobe's archive and downloading an archived version, I am still unable to use flash. Is there some secret step I'm missing, or is it possible I just can't use Flash with my tab?

    Why are you addressing this comment to me? I'm not the one crying for Flash. I don't miss it in the least. I was merely explaining to others that it wasn't Google that discontinued development of mobile Flash. The fault lies with Adobe. People want to blame Google. I'm just setting the record straight.

    There's browsers like SkyFire and Photon that do server side flash. I use Photon on my iPad and it works for sites other than Hulu. There's a Hulu Plus app but you pay like Netflix, directly to Hulu. I've watched movies on my phone that way. I've got flash working on my kindle fire by side loading dolphin and flash. Works fine.

    Just to be sure - once Flash is installed, you need to to use a browser that still supports it. I use Firefox for Android. This works just fine.

    In truth, I wouldn't have even bothered with Flash on my Nexus 7 except that I access TV network sites that do not have an (Android) app yet and I may choose to watch episodes they stream. Very few of these here have done the switch to HTML 5.
