It is up to adobe to compile flash for use on our phones or use skyfire which is the best solution so far.

Two choices, and this applies to every person in every thread, respect each other or I issue infractions and close the thread to let things calm down. If you don't share the same opinion as someone you can either not post or disagree RESPECTFULLY (keyword). Getting infractions makes you mad and causes me work, and I hate work. First, last warning.
Were adults here, lets act like it. Thanks in advance

Just because its android dont make it magically possible to get a proprietary closed source application to compile for our hardware.
It would involve an insane amount of reverse engineering to make it even remotely possible and the second you made any progress and tried giving it out you would be sued back to the stone age.
So to reiterate unless adobe changes their mind getting real flash working on this phone is impossible.
Whether you want to hear it or not thats how it is. I hate to break it to you but no weekend hacker is going to get you flash on an unsupported chipset.

Back on topic, I understand the technical hurdles in getting Flash 10.1 on the Optimus S due to the lack of ArmV6 support. What I haven't been able to find information on is whether there are any *other* versions of Flash supported on the Optimus. For example, I was going to run a test on SpeakEasy.net and it says requires Flash 7. But when I clicked the link, it gave me a Not Found error. Any suggestions?

I think I said this already in this thread but the hero uses flashlite. To get that to work on our phones one would need to port the HTC framework also. Has not been done on any device to date.

OK, this is getting annoying. Sorry guys, I'm with all the nay-sayers. Flash is not supported by the Optimus' processor and THERE IS NO OTHER VERSION OF FLASH to try and download on android.
There is Flash Lite, but as others have mentioned, it will work if someone can port the HTC framework from a phone that ran it - which hasn't been done before. Go ahead and ask them to make a version that will work, but I don't think they will as most (not all) phones that don't support flash 10 will stop being sold soon if they haven't already, considering what we saw at CES.

while the phones presented at CES were sexy, sleek and powerful...
I wouldn't count the "cheap" phones out for a little while longer...
That being said, I think we have a snow ball's chance of getting flash on this phone.
Sad part is this class of phone is actually really decent compared to some of the "higher" end phones that have recently been released... I think that's greatly in part to the larger amount of ram that this phone's been imbued with...
Ram (which is so cheap) has hindered so many phones.
I have this as my personal phone... and a Droid X as my work phone...
This phone routinely has 150-200mb of ram free... and runs consistently faster and more smoothly than my droid X... (no, I haven't modded the X... it's my work phone...) but stock to stock this was at least as fast.

"a flash drive" as in a USB-connected memory chip that appears as an external drive on a PC? No. Our phone does not have the capability to act as a host to USB devices (as far as I know?), which is required.
Flash, as in mini-games, videos etc? Not natively. If you want them, use Skyfire, and alternative browser that you can find in the Market.
