    Hi,
    I am new to Nexus 7 and this forum. Is the flash you mentioned here the SD card or flash drive through mini USB port? If yes, what is the difference between your way and the way of using stickmount?

    Thanks.
    If you download it from your Nexus 7 browser, it will appear in your downloads folder. That's on your built in storage.

    So there are already like 5 threads about Flash "not working" with Jelly Bean. Flash will work just fine on your device if you follow these easy, noob friendly steps.

    UPDATED: Everything fully tested. I have modified the instructions to provide slightly better options.

    1. Download Astro File Manager from Google Play.

    2. Download the Xscope Browser from the Play Store (can play HD Flash) or Firefox Beta from the Play Store (does not play HD Flash)

    3. Download the latest Adobe Flash here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1763805

    4. Open Astro, click on browse and go to your downloads. Click on the Flash APK to install it.

    5. If you used Xscope, go to settings, scroll to the Web Page section and tick the box that says "Auto load flash". If you used Firefox, go to settings in Firefox, and then plugins and tick the box that says enable.

    6. You're good to go. Enjoy, and spread the word that flash works just fine!


    ULTIMATE BEST METHOD FOR ROOTED USERS:

    Follow the instructions here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1780746 to install the standard android browser from the Galaxy Nexus on your device. Works great.

    One extra little tip I found when using Firefox Beta (aka Aurora) and Amazon Instant Video. Make sure you switch your view to "Desktop Site". That allowed me to activate Flash and get the video to play. Mobile Site is activated by default.

    Is there a way to make this work on Chrome browser?
    I moved the flash apk to system/app folder, changed the permissions and rebooted.
    I see FlashSettings in my app drawer but it opens up a blank browser. CNET videos still don't play.
    Don't want to use fire fox
    Thanks

    This worked, but I've found if you want to watch full screen on xscope you need to make the video full screen before playing. Thanks for this I don't want to root my nexus yet still enjoying vanilla.

    That's odd I can switch to fullscreen whenever.

    I got the Xscope Pro too but judging from just limited use it is very buggy. It freezes, crashes and sometimes wont let me enter text. I now use it only for the flash.

    Never had those issues, but I only use it for the flash as well. It certainly plays flash almost perfectly, way better than Firefox.

    I followed the original instructions on this thread after successfully loading Flash and tried Firefox and XScope and finally settled with XScope, it seems much easier to navigate. I have only used it a few times and it seems to work just fine. My earlier attempt to use Firefox seemed way to difficult to navigate and the interface seemed weird. Write that off to me being new to trying this stuff, I've been using the stock browser on other Android devices with no issues and haven't had the need to use others until now. It would be really nice if Google would fix Chrome to get around this limitation since other free browsers have figured out how to do this. Don't join Apple in the fight with Adobe!

    Go to Settings, Security and check Unknown Sources and then try it again. It should install. Just to be safe you should probably un-check this setting after it installs.

    You did mention it, it just may have not been obvious. We are mostly newbies at this stuff and need step by step guidance. Your original post was very helpful and got me going with Flash. Thank you for your clear step by step instructions. I like xScope better than Firefox but that is just a personal preference.

    That doesn't mean it won't still work, it just means they won't be updating/developing flash for android beyond where it is now.

    My big Flash issue is with a site called Blip.tv
    Following this method, Firefox doesn't show a single video and Xscope will play but I can't maximize/fullscreen or pause.
    When I had this issue on my Razr MAXX (after the ICS update) I found the only solution was to use Dolphin browser and set the user agent to "iPhone" (I know, I know but it works). On the Nexus it works too, I did try iPad (for larger screen size) and it doesn't work.

    This may be a specific issue with this site that I can't identify/fix.

    But, that's my workaround as well.
