Abridged Version for those that want a less wordy explanation:
1) Obtain an older flash .apk, a newer flash .apk, and the firefox .apk. All of which can be snagged from the internet, your phone using Airdroid or a similar app, or at the bottom of this post.
2) Install the older Flash .apk, then update to the newer one. (below are numbered in the order that one should flash them, with 1 being older and 2 being newer)
3) After (and only after) installing and updating flash, install the firefox .apk. (remember flash is not always on by default in firefox. If you want the default browser experience, you need to go into the firefox settings, find plugins and select "enabled"￼
Unabridged for those of you that need more in-depth help (includes me from time-to-time):
1) Obtain an older adobe flash player .apk, a newer Adobe Flash Player .apk, and the Mozilla Firefox .apk. All of which can be snagged from the internet, your phone using Airdroid or a similar app, or at the bottom of this post. Essentially you are just getting an older version of flash player and a newer version of flash player.
2) You can download the .apk file directly to your tablet (skip to step 3), or to a computer. If it was on a computer, plug in your tablet and use my computer (or mac equivalent) and stick it in the download folder (just for me to save time writing).
3) On your tablet, go into settings and open security. Make sure to check the box for "Unknown Sources". You get a warning basically saying Google can't guarantee that apps not from Google Play are safe...common sense.
4) On your tablet, install a file manager app (i.e. File Manager HD). On your tablet, open the file manager. Go to the download folder, click on the older flash player .apk (or Adobe Flash Player_1.apk if it was from down below). Click on install, and do the same for the newer flash player .apk (or Adobe Flash Player_2.apk).
5) After (and only after) installing and updating flash (step 4), install a browser that supports flash (aka the firefox .apk using the same method).
6) If you are using firefox, flash is not enabled automatically. Change this by going into the settings, find plugins, and select enabled.
Note: firefox isn't required, it's just what I used.
Note: I used the website http://www.androidcentral.com/wordpr...anish-language to demonstrate it working in the screenshots.
Update 7/17/2012: So I found that when replicating this, I was having trouble getting it to work. So I tinkered and found that installing an older flash first, updating to the new one, and then installing firefox was the ticket. Updated the post to include a better step-by-step and .apk links for flash and firefox
