Flash in Evo with Froyo: A question
I have an Evo and it was updated to 2.2 as soon as I got it. Under Applications>All, it does show Adobe Flash Player 10.1 version 10.1.72.7 but it is only 52KB in size as compared to the 4.25MB size of the version in the above pic. So, I am thinking that my Evo with Froyo still does not have the real or full Flash 10.1. I can experience the potential fun of Flash from the mobile optimized "m.flash.com", but when I try to log into a wesite like HBO, it says "HBO.com is now a Flash site. Your device does not support Flash. Please choose from one of the following options" - and the options are 1. m.hbo.com, 2. HBO iTunes app, and 3. HTML-only version of HBO.com. I tried searching for Flash Player 10.1 (like the one shown in the pic above) in the Market, but it only has Adobe Flash Showcase.
So, my question is should not my Evo with Froyo have the full flash? and, should not it be able to load hbo.com and not the mobile optimized version only?
Thanks a lot for your kind help.

My EVO was updated to 2.2 OTA and has the same flash player version as you and it only shows that it is 52kb large.
That being said, you have Flash and can prove it by going to a flash site like:
I didn't find the exact redirect for a mobile browser, but I bet that's the main problem.

Thanks for your quick response. I am a newbie to android and so am still learning. So, are you saying that you also have the same 52KB 10.1.72.7 version of Flash Player 10.1, and when you enter HBO in your browser, it does not say "HBO.com is now a Flash site. Your device does not support Flash"? Also, how do I get desktop view and the plug-ins on? Thanks a lot.

I am using the stock htc browser, and i checked in the settings, and my "plug ins are always on. I didn't find the option for "desktop view", but under "Mobile view", "Enable mobile versions of web pages" is on.
I still don't know why hbo.com says my device does not support Flash.
Thanks a lot for your help and patience.
