    Lightbulb [HOW TO] Install Adobe Flash Player on Galaxy S4

    Adobe Flash Player still works great on the Galaxy S 4, but only on some browsers. I was surprised that they have even blocked it on the stock browser. But it works well when used with the right browser. No root necessary.

    Step 1: On your S4, go to Settings -> Security -> Enable Unknown Sources
    Step 2: Download apk directly from Adobe. Adobe still updates Flash regularly every month, so use this link instead of downloading an old version from someone's private link. Scroll down to "Flash Player for Android 4.0 archives" and download the latest version.
    Archived Flash Player versions
    Step 3: Download Boat Browser.
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ser.free&hl=en
    Use this for all your non mobile browser needs. Naked Browser also works, but the UI might not be for everyone. I hear the UC Browser works too.
    Step 4: Open Boat Browser -> Menu -> Settings -> Page Content Settings
    Step 5: Enable flash/plug-ins -> Always On
    Step 6: User agent -> Desktop

    Video Tutorial:



    Additional Note: Flash DOES NOT work on: Stock Browser, Firefox (Buggy), Chrome, Dolphin (maybe with a tweak?). Haven't tried Opera, Maxthon, or Puffin.

    *Latest Adobe Flash Player (As of April 27, 2013): Link: Download Adobe Flash Player v11.1.115.54

    hmm....followed the instructions.... but, when I hit any website with embedded video, it just shows the black video window with no response... on some sites, when I select the video window, it brings up an advertisement...

    any suggestions?

    I tried using flash with boat browser but it did not work. So I installed Firefox beta instead and it works good.

    Thanks - I couldn't get it to work with the boat browser either, nor the non beta Firefox, but Firefox beta works good.

    I highly recommend Ocean Browser for S4.
    Right after realising that stock browser does not support flash, I switched to use this great thing.
    read this step by step tutorial : adobe flash player for samsung galaxy s4
    Before this one is for tablets only (mostly Nexus 10 users) but now also for phones.

    Dolphin Browser APK 8.5.1 supports Flash. It's the only "Flash supported browser" my S4 is sporting currently. Can't remember where I got it but I found it by searching. I imagine that previous Flash supported versions of other browsers would work too. But I'd prefer using an up to date browser, so I'm definitely going to check out the browsers mentioned here. Awesome! Thanks!
