Re: I'm an *****
It's actually great that Android allows side-loading, but obviously with great power comes great responsibility! It is very important to know that the apps you are installing are from trustworthy sources. Most of the stuff people link to here or over on XDA are pretty safe, just be sure to verify the user that posted it and read the comments to make sure it's a SPAM post or something like that. Also, for what it's worth, some bad apps do make it to the Play Store from time to time (often as forgeries of known popular apps), so even when using Google's "offical" app repository, it's still good practice to verify the developer and make sure the app is legitimate.

Just scroll down to the section labled "Flash Player for Android 4.0 archives" and download what you need (the most recent one). By downloading directly from Adobe, you can be more assured the files are not malware.
