    The way it used to work is you install Dolphin Jetpack and then the legacy flash player from the play store. Recently, Dolphin included the jetpack in the new version. So you have to uninstall Jetpack, install the new Dolphin. However Adobe recently changed something and the legacy flash player doesn't work. There is a hacked apk that does work, I'm using it now. However I can't find the link, but just do a google search for 'dolphin flash apk" and search the last month, you should be able to find it.

    Out of curiosity, why was Flash abandoned for smart phones?
    I remember reading an article a few years back about how Steve jobs igoned Flash on the iPhone in favor of HTML5 thinking that it was a killer of battery life and other problems. The article stated that he was ahead of the game and eventually was right in that Flash was abandoned.


    Why though? Was it because of the battery life?

    I've heard that it's in part due to security risks, and some technology nuts suggest not even using it on your desktop for that reason.

    Oddly enough, the kids mode on the M8 was updated to bring back Flash based kids games as long as you install Flash.

    Exactly one of the reasons I chose Android over iphone back in 2010. The announcement that flash was "dead" was stunning to me. Yes, many websites are moving to html5. However, many legacy services still use flash. The biggest thing for me is my home TV tuner streaming service (similar to a slingbox). I had to do this hack in order to be able to watch my home tv on the go.

    Here is the link to download the hacked Adobe Flash Player: Dolphin Lab.
