How To: Install Flash 10.1 On Android 2.1 Eclair Devices

It has been a widely believed myth amongst most Android users that only Android 2.2 Froyo or later versions are capable of handling Flash 10.1 but now as the story unfolds, it appears that you can in fact install Flash 10.1 onto your Android 2.1 Eclair powered handsets as well, and that too wishout any complicated procedure. So if you’ve got an Android device running Eclair and want to enjoy Flash 10.1 on it, we’ve got the complete installation instructions for you. Just read on after the jump for details.

This has definitely got to be great news for those of us who often find ourselves browsing through Flash-based websites on our Android phones. As we mentioned earlier, installing Flash 10.1 on your Eclair device is a breeze. All it requires is sideloading the APK of the Flash Player 10.1 modified to work on Eclair, and you’re good to go. While performance might not be as smooth on Eclair due to the absence of a JIT compiler and other optimizations introduced in Froyo, in the end you will be able to surf Flash enabled websites without any significant issue, just with a slight lag compared to Froyo perhaps but even that may not be noticable on relatively lightweight websites.



Enough with the details, let’s get Flash 10.1 up and running on your Android 2.1 Eclair phone. Simply follow these details and you will be good to go!

  1. Download the flash_for_21.zip file to your computer from the link given below.
  2. Using your favorite archive utility, extract the .apk file from the downloaded zip file. We use the excellent free and open-source 7-Zip for the purpose. IzArc is another great free option.
  3. Connect your phone to your computer via USB and copy the extracted APK file to its SD card.
  4. On your phone, enable app sideloading by going to Settings > Applications and enabling ‘Unknown Sources’.
  5. Launch any file manager of your choice on your phone and browse to the location where you copied the APK file. If you don’t have a file manager installed yet, you can find many free options in our list of the best free file managers for Android.
  6. Tap on the APK file to begin installation.
  7. Confirm the prompt that you get and wait till installation finishes.
  8. After the installation is complete, simply reboot your phone.
There you go – you now have Flash 10.1 working on your Android 2.1 Eclair device. This method has been tested and confirmed to be working for Google Nexus One, Droid Eris and HTC EVO 4G on stock Android 2.1 Eclair, but should work for most – if not all – other devices running Eclair.

  10. (im mexican sorry if im write wrong)

    but i just have one question, its necessary to have the “Apps Installer” when you finished all the steps ande the progam “adobe flash player” is installed..?
    my e-mail is: kurahell@live.com.mx

  11. I have LG P350 Optimus Me. It has froyo 2.2. It should support Flash Player but my device is not in Adobe’s Certified devices list. Is it about the firmware? Is it about the contract with LG and Adobe? Will LG P350 support Flash Player or will LG P350 be in Adobe’s Certified Devices list in near future? Or will we be able to use Flash Player by paying money for the aplication program? Come on LG, come on Adobe! We pay money for this phones, we should not be punished because of not paying extra few dollars. It is about the software, just add a advertisement on the screen and give us the Flash Player…

  12. if it wont play the game using app installer, which my tablet wouldn’t, couldn’t even find apk file…try using Adao File Manager opened that hit flash file on sd card & followed onscreen instructions voila jobs a good un….telechip google android 7″ tablet

  13. adobe.com/flashplatform/certified_devices/

    most people have a garbage of smartphone

  15. The installation works, but the Sony X10 OS still doesn’t allow it operate. Oh well. No flash video for me.

  16. I’ve done everything. My phone says: Installation succeeded.
    But it still doesn’t work. Maybe I didn’t reboot my phone long enough?

  25. Hello

    I tried the flash_for_21.apk file on a HTC tattoo, it tried to install it then gave an error, is
    because the file was not compatible with the Tattoo or is there likely to be something else
    The error was:
    “Flash Player 10.1 could not be installed on this phone”
    Do you know if a version is coming out for the Tattoo?

  26. Installed flash 10.1 on my motorola milestone running on 2.1 and restarted. Doesn’t work at all. Please let me know if re booting means re starting your phone after switching it off

  27. This does NOT work on Sony Ericsson Xperia X8 (and probably not X10 mini or mini pro either).
    It installs just fine and everything but nothing happens. When I launch AppKiller, Flash Player 10 does not show in the app list.

    http://www.whatismyflash.com tells me that I don’t have a Flash Player installed and no sites that require FP will work 🙁

  28. hey… thnx.. alot I jst installed adobe 10.1 flash player on xperia mini 2.2…
    haha… relaly happy…. 🙂

    • Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini Android 2.2 Is Not Official . If You Use Roms You WIll Be Able To Use Flash Player .

  29. Well i’ve downloaded it for the LG GT540 and it doesn’t work. I’ve downloaded the Skyfire browser and went to angryaliens.com, I got 1 video working (.swf) but clicking its “video” button but I can’t get it to do it again!!! Pissed me off.

    Any chance of a flash player that works please!!??

  30. Sir, i have dellxcd28 (andriod2.1) i download the flash player and install it and it was successfully installed but it cannot open plz solve my problem? Can i install some other flash playert?thank u…

  31. Flash 10.1 shows in my applications (12.29mb) but when I try to lauch a website requiring it, it prompts me to install it. I’ve restarted the phone (Motorola Milestone 2.1), but it still doesn’t work. Any suggestions?


  32. not working on my garmin asus A10! or else i don’t know how to “reboot” the phone. By “reboot” you just mean switch it off and on again, right?
    is there any other version of adobe flash player that works on android 2.1.??
    thanks for your help

    • “reboot” means power down and power up again

      Once you download the file to the card, unplug the phone from the computer to install the application — that helped with my Samsung Moment. I also had to turn on the “unknown sources” block on the phone, as Adobe Flash Player is not from the Android Market.

  33. Works on The Motorola Defy
    install notes
    – will not play video on you tube due to the you tube app but you tube app works better
    – Phone must be restarted
    – browser set to automatically load flash components gave best results

  34. Followed the instructions, everything installed just fine, rebooted, but I still get the “Cannot Play Video” error. Doesn’t work on my Droid Eris with 2.1.

  35. It doesn’t work on LG GT540 Optimus with Android 2.1. I installed it, but it didn’t work on my default browser. I then installed Skyfire, but it didn’t work again (sites said: install flash player!). I went to “Apps” menu in Settings. There was Flash Player, saying it takes 16 MB memory. I uninstalled it. If you say how I can get it work on my LG GT540, I will thank you very much. Please tell me where I’m wrong and sorry for my English.

  36. I have the Verizon Ally, kinda skeptical to download the program to my know. Can some let me know if they have already downloaded it and if it works. Thanks

  37. This only installs an app in an os that doesn’t use it. Motor cliqe xt modded 2.1 eclair rom.

    Show how to make the stock browser use this app and maybe it will work. I do believe the ones saying it worked didn’t mean it played videos just that it installed

  38. It seems not working on my Kyros COBY. I have rooted my COBY to get Google App successful, but upgrade flash not working. Angry Birds still look terrible.

  39. I have updated Anroid 2.2in my HTC wild fire. I have downloaded Flash player10.1 and copied in my SD card as well. When I tried to install through appsaver it says “not installed”
    Somebody can help me

  40. Okay, i am not trying to be a jerk like the 1st post up there
    I am just leaving a comment, i’ve tried this one
    Not really working on Xperia X10i even with latest firmware (up to today)

    Thanks anyway
    and i would try flash lite that “AndroidDEV” mentioned

  41. i’v done the 3 steps but i install the program ( flash_for_21 zip ) in my SD by putting the SD in the computer and after that i put the SD in my mobile samsung galaxy teos
    but after that when i opened the Apps Installer to install the program my mobile told me that its danger to install the program in to my mobile
    what i have to do
    tell me please

  42. hey all guys i have xperia x10android 2..1 i install flash player step by step but its not worked why?i have rooted my mobile.

  43. This is just a scam, it wont work and i aint even gonna bother checking this out .
    if someone could prove otherwise i would be happy.

  44. I’ve installed this on HTC Hero from Telus (Canadian provider), which is running Android 2.1. I restarted, then using Skyfire browser went to youtube.com, which previously didn’t work for me, played a few videos, they all work fine. Note, when playing a video, I was given 3 options of playing it with: 1) HTC Flash Player, 2) Skyfire, 3) YouTube (I think it’s a youtube app on my phone). HTC Flash Player didn’t play anything (maybe doesn’t support buffering); Skyfire compressed the video (it’s special feature) and played it fine, but had terrible video quality; Lastly, YouTube (I think it’s an app, but not sure) played it flawlessly, high detail.
    So, for all you having problems, try installing Skyfire after installing Flash and see if it works then.
    Also, I believe Tablet should not make a difference, what matters is an O/S, which should be Android 2.1. eg: whether your computer is a desktop, or laptop, running same O/S yields the same result. Same idea here.
    Lastly, I didn’t try any Flash-enabled sites, so don’t know how it would work with them.

  45. well it installed very well and works fine and works on the android core browser only.
    some ppl above saying it works for some site and won’t for others cos its won’t it is because its not 10.1 but it is 9.1.110 well you can test it on whatismyflash.com. it showed so. host i am not blaming you or anything just said what i got.something is better then nothing so thanks for it

  46. Who’s the author of “Apps Installer”? everybody who is trying a similar program says that it doesn’t work so I guess it has to be this particular apps installer to make it work.

  47. I got an Ideos s7 tablet with an android 2.1. Tried installing the Flash player using the .apk file as suggested. Installation went well. I can see the flash player as an application. However when ever I tried to watch live news stream by cnn it asks to install flash player. Does that mean the operating system doesnot see it?
    Can some body can help

  48. I have gone through the process three times but it will not take, trying it on a X10, says it installs successfully, but the flash version checker says no flash installed. Does anybody have any ideas on how to get this working?

  49. tried on Samsung galaxy 3 i5801, adobe flash 10 attached file. it says application is installed but not working when tried with flash TV or flash games. it says download adobe flash player.
    looks like it is not installed
    Pls suggested if any of older version works on galaxy 3 if not 10.


  50. Excellent goods from you, man. I have understand your stuff previous to and you’re just too fantastic. I actually like what you have acquired here, certainly like what you’re saying and the way in which you say it. You make it entertaining and you still take care of to keep it wise. I can not wait to read far more from you. This is actually a tremendous site.

  51. installed onto my Scroll tablet running 2.1 went to club penguin to test the site didnt load altho it doesnt appear in my app list it does appear in list of installed apps when i open app monster so i’m assuming it supposed to just run automatically in the background .. am i right in assuming this or have i missed something any help would be greatly appreciated
    regards to all.

  52. Doesn’t work on Samsung i5500.

    And FYI- ‘Apps installer’ doesn’t exist. ‘App installer’ does… however I used Astro to install the file.

    I’ve now uninstalled it as it simply doesn’t work.

  53. I’ve got a tablet pc with 2.1

    can i also install this on the tablet??
    (are the tablets of my twin kids) and because lot of childern playsites are made with flash…

    or is there another possible way to make .swf files work on a tablet??
    (i ask it because i only see comments with this on a cell.)

  54. i downloaded the zip file to my computer…..installed the apps installer on my Samsung fascinate…..open that program and it showed the flash player 10.1….asked me if i wanted to install it….i clicked yes….it said installing….then installation complete……..i went to a flash site that i have used before from our church…….and it said i need to install flash player….
    So when i transferred from my computer to my sd card, did i not put it in the right spot ?

    • I have exactly the same problem on HTC Wildfire
      App installed but when I look at my apps it’s not there

    • Yes, you should be able to if it works for you. As you can see from the comments, it has worked for many but hasn’t worked for others either. Give it a shot and see for yourself.

    • don’t worked on my x10 :'(
      i have 2.1 eclair.. followed exactly the above mentioned steps… but still not working flash player..

    • I sideloaded this on my AT&T Samsung Captivate and it installed without any issues, but doesn’t seem to work on flash sites at all. I’ve tried the AT&T browser, Opera Mobile and Firefox Mobile, but no luck with any of them. Any suggestions?

  55. I have the Garminfone and updated to the 2.1 software, however I am not able to get flash 10 to install, it just says flash 10 cannot be installed. I have downloaded a good app installer from the market place and brought in the flash file I just left it out of all of the folders. I am not sure if this is what should be done. But some good advice would be nice. And if Flash 10 wont work on the garmin is there another version of Flash that will? I would like to able to see Flash enabled websites. Thank you for your time and advice in advance.

    • Doesn’t work. Tried the way as above explained , It is installed, but it doesn’t work on Sonyericson X10 Web browser .What a lame Phone. I am regret to own it.

    • dear friend, follow the steps above and restart your phone after installation.
      it will work,working on my X10

    • can you access all the websites that needs flash player on the default sonny ericsson web browser!? not working at all on my x101 latest 2.1 android update, followed all the instruction, my phone says that it is install but wedsites still asking me for flash player

    • to sixxx: I also have gt 540, followed the intsructions, but I’m afraid it doesn’t work… Do you have any tips what’s the problem?

  56. You stupid morons, adobe flash will NEVER work in the browsers of Android 2.1 devices!
    You either wait until your phone manufacturer releases 2.2 or go get a htc desire or nexus etc.

    I will wait til SE releases 2.2 for xperia x10, even though i doubt they will ever release it.

    • No need for insults especially if you haven’t done your research… some devices are shipping with Flash Lite 4 which is Adobe Flash Player 9 for 2.1 Devices so yes, flash does work in the android 2.1 browser

    • Dear it doesn’t work on Xperia X10 mini pro. Adobe flash player was installed successfully but doesn’t. When playing swf files a msg flashes on the screen which says Flash player not installed.

  57. I have worked on this APK file and have fixed it so that it should run on all 2.1-update1 devices.
    Here is a megaupload link to where I put the file:

    Please Note this will NOT, NOT work on Froyo

    For all AT&T users, you must
    1. Download the DRIVERS for your phone (just google search for them)
    2. Download the Android Central Sideload Wonder Machine:
    3. You must be registered with Android Central to downlaod it from them.
    4. Downlaod the APK onto your computer.
    5. Open up the Sideload Machine and click choose file.
    6. Navigate your way to where you saved the APK.
    7. Click Go and Install.

    Keep in mind all that developers do for you.
    Be thankful!

  58. I have installed adobeflashplayer in my samsung galaxy 5 as per your instruction it is working in operabrowser. Thanks

  59. Hello guys, just downloaded and installed the files, installation went OK however the package failed to work on my UK Motorola Milestone, Android 2.1update1.

  60. Hello guys, just downloaded and installed the files, installation went fine but failed to work 🙁
    I am on UK Motorola MILESTONE, Android 2.1update1

  61. loaded flash player on 2.2 commvita, didn’t work due to processor being under 800mhz.
    ran same content using skyfire, loads video and plays back in full screen no probs at all. Will probably leave streak on 2.1 as the streak radio does not work in 2.2

  62. loaded on streak 2.1, shows up in apps but does not get recognised for flash content on web.
    Has anybody tried browser that can read flash?
    download ‘skyfire’ browser from android market – should meet most needs on 2.1 and 2.2.

  63. Works on my htc hero! Will not work on opera mini, but allowed me to access sites that I wasn’t able to before on the default browser… Kinda choppy, but I’ll take what I can get 🙂

  64. PEOPLE….Dont believe this crap…it wont work, Adobe said you will need 2.2…I tried everything on 2.1..it will install but browser wont recognise it !!!! Dont fall for this…just wait for update 2.2 for your phone

    • Fall for what? Its a big conspiracy that it will work on a bunch of devices but not all of them.
      Who is trying to dupe you?
      What do they have to gain by lying?
      YOU cant get it to work so people are out to get you???
      Stop being such a doosh.
      It works for some, not for you, get over yourself.
      Nobody is trying to pull the wool over your eyes you whiny little girl.

  65. work fine, good, very well in HTC HERO i hight recoment… i reset my fabric phone no rooted and work fine this flash only is fat (12.28MB) but i dont have any problem with that my phone is fast like fabric and i dont rooted tk so much……..

  68. FAIL: install apk on Samsung Galaxy s 9000 2.1. Rebooted. Tried adobe.com site to test Flash on. Tested with the stock Google browser and Opera. Did nothing. I would not waste your time.

    • Have the browser opened. Tap the settings (bottom-left). Click ‘More’. Tap settings. Tap Enable plug-ins. Done.

  69. Can anyone please tell me how to uninstall this flash plugin. I have installed this using my Xperia X10 and I understand that I will need another file and instructions.
    I have removed the file from the SD card but what next.

    • Steve jobs got it wrong, or all computers today would be running MacOS. He’s making the exact same mistake this time around with a different product. It’ll have the same consequence. He’ll get rich, and shareholders will go bankrupt as the company has another 20 year span of insignificance.

  70. I installed it following the instructions but when i go to youtube or any other site that requires flash it tells me to upgrade it! Please help! Email me! Josue.ruiz45@yahoo

  71. To all the ‘fakers’ out there… be aware that the 2.1 was a beta demo version of Flash Player 10.1… and as a result was NOT compatible to all smart-phone types running 2.1 Android. This is because of firmware and handset manufacturing differences, NOT the Android source.
    Truth is… we’re all screwed until we have ‘Droid 2.2 with a compatible Adobe Flash 10.1 release. (Since I have an SE X10 myself, rumours are Q1 2011 for Android 2.2)

  72. My Motorola Backflip says that for my security’ it cannot be installed because it is from an unknown source. not sure why, but I also cannot currently install anything from the Android Market either.

  73. Hi, I do not believe this works. The Adobe site states that Flash Player is only supported in android v2.2 and above. To all the commenters that have reported it woks on their 2.1 device show me proof. I have unloaded this piece of sh**t

  74. It installed on my Galaxy S Vibrant with no problem. I tried watching a video on fox news, no luck, ABC news, no luck, I tried a few sites and some of them show the F that basically says you don’t have flash. On the news sites the video pops into the viewer on the page for about a 10th of a second and then disappears. So no this is not working. Build Eclair.UVJI6, Firmware 2.1 update.1. I uninstalled it and tried again, same thing. Rebooted both times. If you could e-mail me with some advice please feel free. Thanks for the effort.

  75. hey, THIS WORKING GUYS!! Thanks!

    not Yet, the video from Youtube can’t play direct from standard browser.
    when I try to press play button then it is divert video to internal Youtube application by LG.

  76. lg optimus one has froyo, but lg block adobe flash player.

    this adobe flash player install , but if i open a flash website the website ask for flash player….

  77. I installed it no problem on my S0-1B(japanese version of x10) with no problem, and used it to check some websites I couldn’t previously check. Just follow the instructions.

    • I have Japanese Xperia so,Chiodorien…u say it works…I could install it fine but it doesnt play flash, what do I need to do??If you got it running on your jpanese Xperia SO and it works, why not on my phone, ould you explain…thanks so much

  78. WARNING TO ALL. This is a fake information. The flash yes may be installed to some phones but doesnt function to play video or flash games. Dnt get ur hopes up and keep searching like I will.

    • hey dude I’ve install it but still not working on my X10i 2.1 (rooted), can you plz explain to me how u did it.


    • How did you do it? I installed to my X10 running v2.1, but not able to view flash video or play flash games. I followed the steps and the installer completed installation of the APK.

    • it doesnt works on mine….do i have to download any additional plug-in, such as adobe plug-in….if the answer is yes then where can i get it?

  79. it give ma an error ” for security, your phone is set to black installation of application not secured in andriod market:” what I do now how I can change my security setting?

  80. Doesnt work on ACER Liquid E – Ferrari Edition (Android 2.1 Eclair).
    I’ve tried also to install the Adobe AIR 2.5 (because the Flash Player 10.1 need this plugin) but nothing change.
    Tried with standard browser, mini Opera and FireFox!

  81. works on my galaxy S. sites like hulu and south park complain about my flash version but was able to see flash ads and play simple flash games. its really laggy.

  82. my laptop can not see this website with ok coding maybe the wordpress is not correct? I will try to change laptop and see if it ok.

  83. I’m getting this message when I visit a site with Flash content: “You are trying to install Adobe Flash Player on an unsupported operating system. For system requirements, please visit: *link* For Flash Player, please visit: *link*”


  84. Confirmed working on Samsung EPIC 4G. I visited a site that requires Flash 8 or above and the content played.

  85. Ok it doesn’t work. How do I uninstall it? I’ll wait until Froyo I guess. Please tell me how to remove it. Thanks!

  86. Galaxy s, doesn’t work, error saying requires 9.0 or above, i have enabled plug-ons, restarted and installed 2 times.

    All other galaxy s users. android 2.2 is being release in 3-5 days. just hang in there.

  87. it did not work for my android 2.1 apad tablet. Please can someone help. How can I get android 2.2 update to my 2.1 device? it is really frustrating. Please help. thanks.

  88. i don’t about you guys.. but some how my samsung galaxy S manage to open youtube video on the website in android 2.1 after installing the 10.1 flash for android 2.1 🙂

    • That’s because your device was able to do that before loading this file. All Galaxy S device have Flash Lite loaded, which can handle youtube and other sites still using Flash 9. Try loading a flash 10.1 video and see how well it doesn’t work.

  89. I installed it on my HTC Legend, installation went well and I can find the program on mine sd card, but I can get the programm on one of the screens to activate it.

  90. dosen’t work on my galsxy S i9000 andriod 2.1, after reboot, I find my” contact person tel nos.” all losted…??? Robitsh..!!!!

  91. I installed the this new Flash app on my Samsung Galaxy S Captivate and it is only wokring on the Dolphin HD browser, not on the main browser. My Captivate is Rooted and I installed the Flash app using the Androzip. I don’t see any icon of the Flash anywhere… so I am not sure where it went, but it did say that it installed. I do have the Plug in enable, but when I go to the espn.com site, the image of the video does not move. I tried on the Dolphin HD browser, and it took me the video player and I was able to watch videos very nicely. I also tried on qik.com . It worked fine too on Dolphin HD. YES, I reboot the Captivate phone.
    Is anyway getting it to work on the default browser ?

  92. Just tried this on HTC Wildfire with no luck. After installation & reboot browser keeps telling me that I m stil using flash lite that was available on defailt browser, so this shit is not working.

    • How the hell you get it working on wildfire? On my wildfire this crap is not working – no effect after installation and rebooting.

    • Txs but i follewed the instructions on my Galaxy but also after a reboot i doesnt work. What did i wrong ?

  93. i installed on HTC Aria.. it worked on some and it does not on some.. like, I was able to watch animefreak.tv on it but could not pass on the loading page of evony…

  94. Followed instructions to the T and worked on the Samsung Moment with 2.1 update. I installed “appinstaller” “gregory house” and it found the .apk for me instantly! Went to ESPN.com to test out the newness and worked like a charm!!!!! Thanks Ali Waqas! add the Samsung Moment to you list of approved devices for this method! Thank you Thank you Thank you!

    • Just got this installed on my Moment… Yes I can technically watch flash on sights..BUT is VERY unstable. To the point where icons on the main screen are going haywire… they turned to plus signs and things just aren’t working right. I will be uninstalling it.

      Keep hackin n crackin..

  95. I need help installing this on my vibrant…. I just can’t seem to get it to work… I suck with technology… Do I absolutly need a computer to install this ???? HELP!!!

  96. Don’t know how ’bout u guys but Kongregate works perfectly with new flash player installed on my Wildfire, don’t know if it worked before, but now it does… 😉

  97. From another XDA, it will only work on HTC…. so they are not lying you chaz you troll, but you have to have a HTC


    ……..Here’s recompiled APK for 2.1. It installs, but browser does not “see” it. Here’s explanation why.
    Android 2.2 has a new feature called com.google.android.feature.GOOGLE_PLUGIN. And Flash usesit to embed itself inside browser. So browser in 2.1 does not see plugin.
    BUT!There’s another thing inside – a permission called android.webkit.permission.PLUGIN. It is already used by Flash Lite on HTC devices. So my APK will work and replace Flash Lite. But I did not test, because I do own… Acer Liquid!
    So! HTC users! Try this one! And if it will work instead of your flash lite – report. Your help will be used to port full-blown Flash to other 2.0 and 2.1 devices (yeah! 2.0 is also supported!).

  98. Dont know why you guys add rubbish and lies to your site?
    You know you cant add flash 10.1 to android devices unless they have the new
    2.2 update!
    Where was your testing and confirmation….in your dreams!!! hahahaha…..

    • Just activate plugins in the settings menu of the web browser it shoulb be ok. Works for me on my galaxy s 2.1

    • oups sorry, you were right, flash is working, but not 10.1 because youtube can read videos directly into the browser but when trying to play on miniclip.com, says my version is to old…

  99. I down loaded it to my Samsung Acclaim but I still can’t play flash videos. Has anybody tried with this phone yet? It is a 2.1 update 1.

  100. Confirmed: thank you so much… it’s working on samsung galaxy s android 2.1 update 1 on TMN Portugal, with the aplication on this last site by locos.

    Just one question if you know: is it possible to instal Adobe Shockwave Player on android 2.1?

  101. NOT WORKING ON MY SAMSUNG VIBRANT. Tried method above with enabling plug ins, but was already enable. DONT WASTE YOUR TIME

  102. Thanks, it worked on my Samsung Galaxy S, but its just little slow…i am wondering 1Ghz processor isn’t enough for it or its due to some shortcoming in Android 2.1

    • How you get it to work?i installed successfully and restarted but can’t work in sky fire our dolphine

  103. Super, cela fonctionne Nickel sur Galaxy S.
    Juste quelques soucis sur les jeux en flash comme sur miniclip par exemple… à voir.
    ET pour la gestion des vidéos, problème pour les actions de pause, recul et avance.. espérons que cela sera corrigé avec froyo.

  104. tried this on my moto cliq running Eclair2cliq Beta 1….downloaded apk file, got it installed, rebooted as directed and tried going to multiple flash only sites and yet it doesnt work…. I even tried that webmessenger.yahoo.com one too… looks like i gotta wait till android 2.2 (froyo2cliq)

  105. hey working on my HTC legend …thanks …!

    i can open flash sites …! tried webmessenger.yahoo.com ..! its totally flash site worked fine ..!

  106. CONFIRMED: Not working on Droid X 2.1 Eclair – Rooted
    Baseband: BP_C_01.09.04P
    Firmware: 2.1-Update1

    Followed directions, installed successfull, reboot successfull, no flash working in web browser.

  107. CONFIRMED: Is working on Samsung Galaxy S (T-Mobile – Samsung Vibrant) (7/28/2010)
    Baseband: T959UJFD
    Firmware: 2.1-update1

    • CONFIRMED!!!!!!

      Works on Galaxy S version 2.1 -update 1 eclair

      AND HERE IS HOW!!!

      Follwo the instructions as stated here.

      Now the clever bit, once you have finished the instructions and rebooted the phone.

      1. load the internet
      2. Press the menu button on the bottom left of the phone
      3. Select the option ‘More’
      4.Scroll down and select settings
      5. Scroll down to ‘Enable Plug-Ins’
      6. Enable them
      7. Go find a website that uses flash player.

      I recommend the flash version of Magical Trevor, i got to enjoy having flash enabled and have a laugh at the video as well.

    • Magical Trevor (from gprime.net) is listed as flash; but it already plays in my wife’s Samsung Vibrant which doesn’t have the flash_for_21.apk installed.

      I installed this flash_for_21.apk in my Vibrant using Astro File Manager. Then went to http://video.telequebec.tv/ which contains Flash 10.1 videos. They don’t play, instead you’ll see the familiar F sign. Yes, I did enabled the plugins (which were enabled by default, btw).

      So, I’d say that this technique doesn’t work in t-mobile Samsung Vibrant.

  108. For those of you having a hard time finding App Installer search for it without the space as “appinstaller”.

    Also, I installed this on my Samsung Moment running Android 2.1. It installed fine but flash does not show up in my web browser. It just shows a little box with a question mark indicating a missing plugin.

  109. It doesn’t work in the Motorola Droid Milestone.

    Could install Flash but neither the default browser or Dolphin HD browser couldn’t run flash videos.

  110. Sprint HTC EVO 2.1 flash installed and working great! Now onto my next mad todo item… Get Droid on on my iPAD!!

  111. I installed but still i was not able to open the other sites which were needed the flsashplayer.
    Dont install this

  112. Confirmed. Not working in Samsung Galaxy S (T-Mobile – Samsung Vibrant)
    Baseband: T959UVJFD
    Firmware: 2.1-update1

    • CONFIRMED: Is working on Samsung Galaxy S (T-Mobile – Samsung Vibrant) (7/28/2010)
      Baseband: T959UJFD
      Firmware: 2.1-update1


    • Tried on samsung i9000 galaxy S. Installs but flash does nbot load on websites. Suggestions people?

    • I tried to download and install Flash in my Samsung Galaxy. It worked fine but I still can’t tell the difference. I still can play movie clips in websites like http://www.Snotr.com.

      I tried to watch clips in snotr.com from other devices – HTC Desire, IPad, X10. They played the clips but not in my Galaxy…..

      Can you try it in your Galaxy to and try to get back to me please????

  113. the file installed, but after reboot, I didnt see any form of flash to be view or played

    • You might be looking at Flash Lite. Its pre- installed on all HTC phones.

      Any non-htc phones got this to work?

  114. even with 7Zip the archive is corrupt, I have tryed click on the link and with right mouse and save object, but 7Zip (version 4.65) still tell me: “Compression method unknown”.

  115. There is an easier way to do this.
    download barcode reader from market then take the zip file address and copy it to create a qr code at http://qrcode.kaywa.com/.
    use barcode scanner to read qr code and download zip directly to your phone.
    pretty much any file manager on your phone will be able to unzip this and install it.

    i know it means downloading a couple of other apps but the barcode scanner is excellent and a good file manager is very very usefull….

  116. can someone help me with step 2?

    Now navigate to the market and install “Apps Installer” utility to your phone.

    I cant find the Apps Installer in the marketplace
