Installing Adobe Flash on Android Jelly Bean devices

View Flash content on your Android device with these five steps.

Google Android Jelly Bean 4.1 does not officially support the Adobe Flash player. Although a number of sites have made the transition to HTML5, you may still find yourself needing to access Flash content.

It is possible to activate Flash on a Jelly Bean device manually without having to root it. We cannot guarantee that Flash will work for all, but we have tried it on the Google Nexus 7 and Galaxy Nexus smartphone and it should work on others.

Before you get started we should point out this is not recommended by Adobe or Google and there will not be any patches to update stability or security. You install this at your own risk.
