    Yep thats right u can get flash 10.2 on ur xoom now, no need to wait a week!

    OTA update not needed, however im guessing OTA will make the flash run smoother. Also i recommend setting User agent to desktop for best results.

    INSRUCTIONS:

    Download file from link below.
    Change file extension from .zip to .apk
    open file and install!



    Flash for your Xoom!

    if you are rooted u can update manually using this

    My Brain Hurts: Manually Updating your rooted XOOM

    However on xda some people are saying that the flash works without the update. i imagine it might work, just might not have hardware acceleration.

    So yea.
    Do I need to have my XOOM unrooted or whatever it is to install this, or can I install this with default factory stuffs.

    My XOOM is totally stock without that new OTA and this Flash APK is working great.

    So now I just need to learn how to sideload or whatever. Sounds easy enough.

    Check alternate sites?
    Some sites are working 100% some aren't.
    This is, of course, if you haven't received the update from verizon/motorola from last night.


    Thats all I can offer right now, seeing as I don't have the update, nor flash.

    So how are you guys loading this? I downloaded a .zip file. Change the extension to .apk?

    Edit: Nvm. Got it.

    Garbanian, no need to sideload, just dowload the apk from the link using ur xoom and open the file and install. If it downloads as a .zip rename it to .apk.
    garbanian and CD1X like this.

    I just watched the first 10 minutes of the movie contact at amazon.com and that is pretty awesome. Took a solid minute to buffer good quality but playback was OK, it could be better but it's not bad either.

    Well aren't you a fantastic person!!!!

    Hopefully I'll be able to grab the link when I get out of work.
    If not, I bet someone here will be nice enough!

    Thanks again Ravizzle.

    I followed the link in the OP to MyDroidLife and the first sentence in that thread is enough to deter me from trying this:

    "I'm sitting in my office today and I get a PM asking me if I would like something special for my Xoom and that all they would need is my email addy."

    I think I'll wait until it's official in a week...

    It seems as though this is a veryyy early build of Flash 10.2, according to Droid Life. It seems to work well enough, but I am looking forward to the new version on Friday.
