Hello all,

 

I know that this is not supported solution by Adobe, but I managed to install Flash Player from Google Play on my Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7" device running Android ICS 4.0.4.

 

Here's what I did:

- Installed SWF Player - Flash ®FileViewer from Google Play and started it

- As the SWF Player - Flash ®FileViewer required Flash Player, it referred me to Google Play Flash Player download page.

- Download and installation of Flash Player was from there a usual process of installing an app.

- I could not see Flash Player in the Google Play installed items list, but it is listed in the internal installed programs list. Flash content runs in the default browser and there is a settings icon in the apps list.

 

Everything may not work, I don't know this as of yet but hey..at least something, rather than nothing, works. So far so good.

 

Cheers,

Jaakko J.

    I am using the Galaxy Tab 7.7 P6800, initially was Honeycomb3.2, and upgraded to ICS 4.0.4 officially released by Samsung lately.

     

    I have checked with Samsung and below are their replied:

    Based on your email, please try this steps:

    - Please download adobe flash player 11.apk from your pc,

    - Download Kies onto your pc, transfer this file to your mobile/tablet using the usb cable,

    - Please ensure "Unkown Resources" is ticked,

    - Locate the flash11.apk onyour mobile/tablet, select install,

    - After installing, restart your device,

    - Please take note Jelly Bean O/S DOES NOT SUPPORT.

     

    Samsung did not provide me the direct link for downloading the flash 11.apk. However, I google it and manage to locate the link, the link is:

     

    "https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.adobe.flashplayer&fe ature=search_result#?t=W251bGwsMSwxLDEsImNvbS5hZG9iZS5mbGFzaHBsYXllciJ d"

     

    I have installed and so far working fine, actually flash player is only for surfing certain websites that contain flash images that require flash, if not, is not necessary.
