Yes it does.
No It doesn't
Browser crashing on Flash sites and apps fix.
I had the browser crashing problem because I had like many others had the 2.1 flash 10.1 installed before i updated to froyo, and apparently the 2 patches dont get along. I didnt wanna factory reset so I brainstormed... I decided well I might as well try to reinstall the 2.1 flash again then uninstall it to see if that works so I used droid Explorer to install the old patch and to be safe i installed the flash 10.1 beta release 2 and then after installing them i reset my phone, but when i went to look for them in apps they werent there... (they were there before i reset, i juss reset to make sure the changes saved.) so i tried a flash app, and it worked, and my browser no longer crashes. Weird right. So try this method and let me kno if it works for u aswell. Im guessing that when i installed a older flash and shut it down froyo must have sum how realized it was there removed it and put theyres back on top and corrected what was wrong before... who knows? I juss know now my browser no longer closes itself on flash sites!!!! :P
If this works for u congrats u save yourself the time of reinstalling everything!!! all i want is the recognition and thanks!!!

I downloaded and installed Froyo OTA last night. Things went well, but I cannot find Flash Player 10.1 anywhere on the phone. Am I missing something? TIA
P.S. Found it. did more searching and there it was.

Why people installed that in the first place I'll never know, but I put part of the blame on the poor editorial work of Android Central for leaving that article up despite being informed time and again that it was fake and broken.

This worked for me
Upon installing froyo, I had the problem of my browser crashing when trying to us a website with flash content. I initially tried the solution mentioned first in this thread but was unable to uninstall flash and every time I tried to install flash over top of my current version, the install failed. I then realized that I was trying to install the flash version built for 2.1. I then download the 2.2 version here, and it worked. I just installed the .apk using installer and flash is back up and running. Hope this works for everybody.
