    Default Optimus S, now with... FLASH!

    I realized a little bit too late that this has been posted already.

    An ARMv6 port of Adobe Flash version 10.1.106.15 is out! Granted, it's not an official build, but it works perfectly fine.

    This has been reported not to work on Android 2.2/Froyo on other devices, but apparently DOES run on our phone. Mileage may vary. I tested it with Gingerbread (Zefie's build) and it worked with great performance.

    ***HOW TO INSTALL***

    Step 1. Download the zip at Multiupload.com - upload your files to multiple file hosting sites!
    Step 2. Extract the .apk file to your microSD card
    Step 3. Make sure you are enabled to install apps from "Unknown sources"
    Step 4. Navigate to the .apk on your phone, and run it through the install
    Step 5. Reboot the phone
    Step 6. ..........
    Step 7. PROFIT!

    I've tested this with the Optimus S on Zefie's 2.3 build, and it works with no strings attached. I played several games on miniclip.com, ran TinyShark (the flash-reliant free version of Grooveshark for Android), etc. It never glitched in anyway. So, without further ado, enjoy!

    NOTE: I take no credit for the development of this port in anyway - I came across the port on XDA for the Optimus One and made sure it worked on our phone.

    It's the same flash. In my backup, it says Adobe flash 10.1 version 10.1.106.15. It worked on Reborn.

    Gotcha. Well then I'll go ahead and delete the post! But it does work fine with Tinyshark, which was important for me.

    It does work with Gingerbread! And apparently Froyo, on this phone - no guarantees on performance, though.

    You have to extract the apk out of the zip. It's not flashable.

    Yeap, I had posted it some time ago. It's not perfect with some websites but it works. Don't you just love our phones? They have everything and they're not huge as most of the android phones.

    Thanks, I guess I have to root the phone. I was trying to avoid it but I guess I can't. I'm on ZVC, bc I know my tethering app will work.

    I really want flash, it kinda sucks having to use skyfire all the time. I might update to zvd, then use gingerbreak.

    I did the steps couldn't find flash in my applications. Then I downloaded a zip viewer found it abd was able to install. Now its in my application manager but nothing is viewable or playable on my browser. Do I need to root or something? Oh and I have the 2.3 gingerbread update
