    Default Flash Player Is NO MORE After 4.4 Update (Work Around Available)

    For those of us who use Dolphin, Boat or some other browser compatible with Flash... no more. Flash will NOT work with Android 4.4.
    Update: There is a work around using Dolphin Browser.


    Here is the work around. Works perfectly:

    Why is it so ?? Is Google giving flash support in its OS 4.4 KitKat ?

    It breaks flash support completely. Hopefully someone comes out with a fix.

    Adobe stopped support for mobile flash player 2 or so years ago. They were only offering updates to flash for below 4.0 ICS. They never officially supported jelly bean.

    Just out of curiosity you had to manually side load flash onto your device and then the Next browser or other compatible flash browser will work with it, right? I'm thinking of getting flash on my N4 since it really does come in handy many times. Installing the browser itself won't give me flash is that correct? I have to side load flash first. This is my understanding of it.

    Flash is indeed not working though on 4.4. I installed it and cannot load any flash.

    Dolphin had something to say about it:

    Works for me with Next browser. Maybe I just haven't come across something flash wise..but I have been doing my normal stuff. What wouldn't work for you?

    Just to be clear.. It could be that it isn't working and I just haven't noticed. Everything I normally do is working fine..including YouTube and other things. Not that this couldn't be html5.

    When I click on a Flash video the box the video is in states that Adobe Flash Player is needed and to download the latest version. Alot of mawebsites use HTML5 such as Fox News and YouTube and so lack of Flash will not be noticed until you come across a site that still uses Flash. I personally believe that Adobe ended support for Flash on Android way to soon. A ton of websites are slow to adopt HTML5.

    Google do not own Flash, they have no obligation or any responsibility for it working with their OS. There is no Google fault in your precious Flash not working on Android. Stay with 4.3 if you want to use it, otherwise, don't complain.
    Google never supported Flash... Adobe supported Flash thus Flash supported Android. Nobody is putting this on Google... Adobe decided to end support.

    Not this again. Adobe had continued to support Android until September of this year, long after Google officially abandoned it. It had not worked in Chrome, but continued to work in the aosp browser, until now. Google has switched the web rootkit it uses in Android to Chromium, with does not support flash at all.

    Looks guys, until kitkat Firefox ran flash. I could run Amazon Prime videos, you simply went to Adobe Flash archived flash, download the latest flash for Android, change settings in security to allow install of non Google Apps. Then install, Worked fool proof. What I want to know is how do I revert back to Jelly Bean!?

    Irrelevant, With Jellybean and Firefox, you went to Adobe archived flash and download latest flash for Android. Change settings to allow install of non-Android Apps, Download flash, install, reboot and run flash such as Amazon Prime Video.

    Well, if Adobe were to stop supporting flash for windows how long would Microsoft hold on to old code in its product before making a change that would break flash completely?

    Sure Google might of removed certain APIs, but again, Adobe hadn't updated the app to work on new versions of Android. If anything we're lucky if worked this long.

    No, you are wrong. Adobe continually updated it until September of this year. I installed several updates on my N4 from the Adobe website.

    That's true, but doesn't mean they are intending to make it compatible with KitKat, or putting as much resources into it like before.

    He said Adobe didn't update Flash to work with NEW VERSIONS of Android which is correct. Yes... Adobe continued to update up to September, but it wasn't to support the newer versions of Android. 4.0 is the last Android version to be supported by Adobe. That's a fact.

    So I guess updates up until September of this year was not inclusive of Jellybean? The fact remains that they were still pushing updates until September of this year and I was able to apply everyone of them. Those updates were not just for people using ICS 4.0 and it was not old code, otherwise their would be no need to supply updates. The fact that Google refused to acknowledge those updates does not mean they did not exist. I understand what you are saying, but my point is that the updates worked for newer versions and Adobe would have stated that the newer versions were inclusive had it not been for the fact that Google abandoned support of Flash. This would not allow Adobe to provide support for Flash on newer versions, so obviously they would not list the newer versions as supported. Which is my point, the updates were there, they were just not officially supported.
