    Disclaimer: I do not own, nor do I take credit for, any of the work done in creating this app. I simply discovered that it worked on my Replenish, and thought I should share it for others to try.

    At long last, I've found a version of flash that works for our phones and continues to work after a reboot (for myself anyways). Previously, I found methods that would run, but they would stop working after a reboot and would never work again (even after uninstall/reinstall) until a data wipe.

    Steps for installing (Root Explorer makes this very easy):

    1.Download this file: Flash Player 11.1.APK
    2. And this one: lib.zip
    3. Install the Flash Player.apk
    4. Extract the files from lib.zip and copy them to /data/data/com.adobe.flashplayer/lib
    5. Change the permissions on each lib file to rw-r--r-- (chmod 644 filename)
    6. Reboot
    7. Go to What Is My Flash Player Version? to test if it works or not.

    Note: When checking your flash version it will say that it is version 10.3.185, but the actual version is 11.1.102. This discrepancy occurs because the lib files that are used are from Flash 10.3.

    I invite everyone to try this out and see if it works!

    ^ Yeah, flash video and game performance will be sub-par at best, this phone just doesn't have a powerful enough graphics chip to stream video well. But hey, at least we can view flash content, which is more than we could say before.

    Well, I guess since this thread has 200 views and no complaints, this must work for everyone :P

    Hooray!

    Perhaps not for a ROM release - this takes over 12 MB of space on the phone, and on our little phones, 12 MB is a lot. Plus, we have such a crappy CPU, that flash does not work well anyway, so we would be paying 12 MB for poor performance.

    I think that even though the video performance is lacking, it's useful for when you need to view a site that requires flash.

    Either way, once we get data2ext working well, 12mb won't be a hit at all.

    I just use Dolphin Browser Mini instead of the normal browser; it's 2.58 MB and it has flash built in. I vote with dmrlook, this is unnecessary.

    What file explorer app are you using to navigate? The stock explorer only shows the /sdcard directory, so you can't access the /data directory that you need to do this. With Root Explorer, you can move the files to the proper directory, as well as change the permissions easily.

    Ok so I downloaded the APK (which saved as a zip btw so I renamed it to .apk) I installed the APK and then set ES File Explorer so I could go to the root directory.

    I found the data folder but there was nothing in it. Does the phone need to be rooted to see the files in this folder?

    Do you see the "Flash Player Settings" icon in your app drawer? If not the APK probably didn't install correctly for some reason.

    If the APK installed correctly and the lib files are correct, then try checking your browser settings and make sure that plug-ins are enabled.

    It's easy to change the permissions (from the phone) using root explorer, or another file manager that allows you to access the /data directory. Just long press on the file, and select Permissions, and set it to the values that I indicated in the OP. You can also do this from your computer using ADB, but it's a bit more complicated.
