    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 appreciate your enthusiasm and posting a potential fix, but there's no need to post the same thing a total of 19 times in different threads. Let's keep the discussion here.

    Thanks,

    That's because that 2.1 Flash 10.1 hack was a fake. It was actually Flash Lite repackaged with the 10.1 name. Thus, during the update, it thinks flash is already installed, and when the browser tries to load it, it freaks out.

    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.

    It worked like a charm! Thanks. I had to email it to myself and then click install from the email to get it install. It wouldn't for some reason off the SD card install, no clue.

    Android Central, huh? Did you email Jerry and let him know? He posted a screenshot of what his device reported the version of flash to be. He then linked to the source thread at XDA. I'm not sure if he continued to read through all 28 pages of thread after he reported it. He also asked people to test and see, which was not an acknowledgement that it was guaranteed to work.

    I'm having trouble getting my hands on the flash 10.1 beta download. Any suggestions?

    And as far as resetting the phone, do you mean just a simple reboot or the other process?

    Thanks

    I am unable to install either of the flash files and I am unable to uninstall it to do a reinstall. Also there doesn't seem to be a com.adobe.flashplayer anywhere.

    I get the same thing. When I go to Settings > Applications > Flash the uninstall button is grayed out.

    Anyone have any help for this?

    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.
