    I don't believe that's correct. Flash is supported on Android 4.0.x, but that will be the last version. To the OP .... you might try re-installing, or there's a thread here which suggests using the download-by-computer option:

    Just go to play market and update your flash player.

    Can't believe google is dropping flash support though! That'll be enough to push a lot of folks back to Apple. Here's hoping the devs can keep flash working for us for awhile... but without updated frameworks from Adobe, I'm doubting it?

    Me? Nope. Doubt I'll ever go Apple. But I know several people for whom this is true. It really is one of the major discriminators between the platforms, for the average user. And despite Apple crying it from the rooftops, flash is far from dead. Google is really dropping the ball here.

    It isn't Google that is dropping flash support it is Adobe that is dropping mobile flash development.

    Ah, well, maybe Flash IS finally dying then! That seems defeatist of Adobe, but if that's the direction they want to go, oh well... still seems silly!

    No, Flash dropped all Linux, and Linux based platform support. And Flash Player is not supported on any upcoming Android builds after ICS. That means no Flash on JB.

    A few questions that might help us figure out your problem:

    - Are you running stock ICS or have you rooted and are running some other build?

    - What shows up when you try and access something that uses Flash?

    - Does it show up in the app store properly?

    For the record, what others said above is correct. Adobe will be discontinuing all Flash support for ALL (iOS included) mobile operating systems soon in order to focus on HTML5 and other web developing technologies. But Flash is available and should be working on your device.

    Stock ICS no root.. YouTube works. Some sites that worked on GB no longer work. Example cnn.com/video.. Just get a black screen. I have installed flash 11 from play store. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling. Still nothing.. Thanks hope that helps..

    "Flash" didn't drop anything. Adobe is the company you're looking for. And what you said is the same thing I said. Adobe is the reason for lack of Flash on Jellybean not Google. Adobe dropping support for Linux is dropping support for mobile.

    Flash smash, the version of flash that we have access to was cooked up with the gingerbread formula in mind, it was not rehashed for ICS by adobe.
    The workaround- go back to a stable os like gingerbread. ICS on the Epic is a fail.

    Well, couldn't Google make JB compatible with the same Flash that works on GB and ICS if they wanted to? Just because Adobe isn't going to improve it or support it anymore doesn't mean it suddenly stops working. So it is Google's decision not to make it work in JB.

    It isn't up to Google to make Flash work for its OS as much as it isn't Google's problem to make Angry Birds work with its OS. They changed things since ICS and Adobe has chosen not to continue making it work going forward.
