Here is how to enable Adobe Flash support in Android 4.4 KitKat
With Android 4.4 KitKat (and all future versions for that matter), Google moves to Chromium for its WebView and this means Android now no longer supports Flash at all.
The reality of the situation, though, is that Flash is still on a lot of websites, and the lack of support results in some webpages getting displayed with huge blank spots instead of a video or other Flash content. Is there a way to somehow work around Google’s limitations and get Flash to work in the latest Android 4.4 KitKat?
Turns out the answer is yes, and it’s all made very simple by a member of the XDA Developers community, user surviveland. The solution he built relies on the Dolphin Browser - that seems to be best suited to the task - and on a hacked version of the Flash player. It also requires you to allow side-loading applications, so that you can actually install the hacked Flash player that makes it all possible.
