          There is no more Flash Player for Android and there won't be another. Android is no longer compatible with Flash Player. Archived versions WON'T run on anything newer than 4.0, as well, and even then you'd have to "sideload" it and make several changes to get it to work, and you'd run into numerous pages and sites that will tell you you need to update to the latest Player. Honestly? it's a waste of time. Playing Flash content is very processor consumptive and it drains your battery, also shortening the life of it. Android (Google) recommends using either "Dolphin" or "Puffin" as your browser if you need to view Flash content with a mobile device running Android. They're both free in the GooglePlay store. These browsers use "server side" rendering to reduce the load on your device.
