How to install Adobe Flash on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean
So, it turns out that Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and Adobe Flash can get along, even though the maker of the popular plug-in clearly said its product won't be supported on the platform. Best of all, you don't really need to be a rocket scientist in order to install Adobe Flash on your Jelly Bean smartphone or tablet. In fact, the process is pretty straightforward.

As described on the XDA Developers forum, you have to download the Adobe Flash .APK file. How do you do that? Well, you are free to use the download links provided at the forum thread, available at the source link below. Then install the downloaded file using your Android file manager of choice. In case your device does not have one by default, Astro and ES File Explorer are two good ones that you can try out. And that's it! As long as plug-ins are enabled in your web browser, Adobe Flash content should be rendered.

Of course, Adobe does not officially support Flash on Jelly Bean, so further software updates are out of the question. Furthermore, you can't really complain if the plug-in is buggy or causes your browser to misbehave in any way. Nevertheless, in case you insist on having the feature for whatever reason, at least you now know one of the easiest ways to get it.

I would assume yes, given they are supporting flash, and also use Adobe AIR for one of their app environments.

I have adobe flash on my s3 and its working fine , I installed it manually by using this guide http://www.careace.net/2012/10/03/how-to-manually-install-flash-on-your-samsung-android-device/ .No doubt flash has been removed from play store That however doesn’t mean that you can’t get it.

Yes it's something that I have been using on both my Samsung Galaxy Nexus & My Asus Transformer Prime. Flash works very well with Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean.

lol Thank you. I just found it very funny that people follow me just to thumb me down. I mean I really don't care because I do this for fun.

I am just glad that to some people SuperAndroidEvo's posts are important enough to read. Even if it's just to thumb me down.

"My public, they really love me" as quoted my the immortal Bugs Bunny. lol

You are also right. I am going to be more objective when it comes to Apple. I have no beef with the iPhone, just the people who take is a bit too far. Like yesterday there was someone who I won't name, calling people g@y or f@gs. That will not be tolerated.

I like conversing with you because this is fun to you, just as it is to me. It's NOT life & death like it seems to be to some people. lol

Haha, finally some smartdroid fans here to chit-chat on!!! And I know who that was lol

IDK why this site love to keep bashing apple. I admit that ios has no match with android. Doesnt mean ios suck, again personal preference. Many people prefer iphone for three reason, simplicity, elegant, or just to show they are afford to buy.

I used to be an mindless ifans who keep persuade my friends last year that stop buying laggy android and wait for an iphone 5 which rumored to have 4g lte, flash, blutooth file transfer and so on to shame android. But what did Apple made? iphone4+s :(

I used to bash android but not this time. After I saw an ICS video. I was shocked that It was truly amazing, most advanced os i had ever seen.

I love android, the only things I hate here is those mindless fandroid who keep claiming it is the bes, love to create hyped, which means create dissapoint, also keep trolling ios just to rejoice their emotion. And thats why i enjoy to taunt and troll them, by posting weird comment to bash them out :D

I remember when I posted a comment about you. I remember saying that you always post little jabs at EVERYONE just to start getting people riled up.

You are the person who pushes the first domino to get them all to fall. lol

So there is a method to your madness. lol

I know many people just like you who wanted & were expecting the iPhone after the iPhone 4 to be the best. Once the iPhone 4S was released they jumped to Android.

Trust me you are definitely not alone.
