I just bought a google android tablet and there is no way to get adobe flash, yet it was advertised to have it and needs it to view even utube videos. I love love love my tablet and would really appreciate it if developers could give us a way to get flash onto it. There are hundreds of thousands of us out there buying these things and only find out this incompatibility after we fall in love with everything else about the tablet. Please help.
I have tried direct download, which just gives me the message "application was not installed" after going through the install process.
I tried downloading it on my computer and transferring it via usb... got the same "application was not installed" message
I tried downloading it directly from the android market... only to have them reject the download because I do not have a phone registered (I have a tablet, not a phone)
Please do help and keep me updated... my heart is sad till you do... ::sniff::
I have the same problem
there is a temporary sollution I have found
Use slide me app side to download freedi you tube downloader
this app downloads the movie onto your tablet instead of playing it online
atlaest that ay you are able to watch youtube on your tablet
I must say verdors of these tablet do not give enough info on what the thing needs to do what they claim it can do.
Too bad adobe has not offered us a sollution them selves...
First try this:
a) First, verify that Flash Player is installed and working on your system.
Check the Flash Player Version Detection page, here (the link is case-sensitive): http://adobe.ly/wRILS
b) If you see the box with version information, you have successfully installed Flash Player and will be able to view Flash content via the Android browser.
Open the Browser
Hit the Menu Button
Choose Settings > Enable Plug-Ins and make sure that it's set to Always On
If the settings above did not match, this probably fixed the problem.
Please visit the Flash Player Version Detection Page (http://adobe.ly/wRILS ) again.
If you see the version information now, you're done! Congratulations.
d) If not, it sounds like the installation did not work correctly.
First uninstall Flash Player by doing the following:
Go to Settings > Applications > Manage Applications > Adobe Flash Player
Hit Uninstall (or Uninstall Updates) and follow the prompts
Restart your phone. This will make sure that anything that might be keeping the Flash Player binary locked is no longer running.
Once the phone comes back up, open the Market and search for "Flash Player". Follow the installation prompts.
If that doesn't solve your problem, please provide the following information:
(From Settings > About Phone/Tablet)
I've got the same problem, I tried your suggestions a few times but unfortunately it doesn't seem to solve the problem. I'm living in China, and downloaded version 11.1 from the Chinese market app. Here are the details of my phone:
Android Version: 2.3.4
Kernel Version: 220.127.116.11-perf-CL498863 se.infra@SEP-52#1
Hope you can help!
Unfortunately, your device does not meet the minimum system requirements for Flash Player on Android.
Flash Player requires a CPU with support for the ARMv7-A instruction set to achieve the level of performance required for acceptable multimedia playback. If you want to run Flash natively on your device, you'll need to upgrade to more capable hardware.
Your device has an ARM11 CPU, which only supports the ARMv6 instruction set.
For future reference, Adobe maintains a list of devices certified to work with Adobe Flash Player and AIR here:
You might want to give Skyfire a try. It uses "remote desktop" technology to render Flash animation and video in the cloud, for devices that are incapable of processing Flash content natively:
I have problem downloading Flash Player too.
The details of my phone are :
Model : GT-N7000
Android version : 2.3.6
Kernel version : 18.104.22.168-N7000DXLC2-CL1039404 dpi@DELL171#2
Build : GINGERBREAD.DXLC2
Thanks for your help.
I have a e1108_v73_hj1maxwest 2.3.6 kernel version 22.214.171.124 its a unlocked smart phone with quad band gsm duel sim 3g android w/ wi-fi touchscreen and when i try to download flash player it says the phone isn't compatible but i believe its cause the manufacturer didn't contact adobe and give them the model number cause the 2.3.6 android software is used on many phones that use the flash player 11 so how can i get adobe software to recognize the android software and not the phone its self? if at all possiable can i download to my PC and from there install onto my phone as well? thank you for your time.
