Explained in this guide is the procedure on how to install the Adobe flash player on your Android 4.2, 4.3 Jelly Bean powered phone/tablet.

Google Android team ditched Adobe Flash Player opting to go with HTML5. While this is not completely a bad thing, but there are considerable number of who believes Adobe Flash Player is meant for them. Apple has adopted HTML5, so does the Mozilla new Firefox mobile OS. While they are favoring the next technology on how we watch the videos on websites online, they don’t realize that millions of sites on the web still relay on Flash, the main technology behind such content.Flash for Android

The first thing you should ensure is to enabled Install App from Unknown source option by going through Settings > Security. This is required because you will now install APK file directly from unknown sources. So as a security measure you are required to do this on your Android 4.3 Jelly Bean powered phone. Once that is done, follow the two step process mentioned below –

  • Now Go to Download Adobe Flash APK on your phone directly on download it on your PC and then move the APK file to your phone storage via Bluetooth, by USB connectivity or any means.
  • Tap on the APK file to begin the installation.

    I can’t seem to get it to work on my nexus 7 it was working fine before I decided to do a factory reset on it. Because it was getting really slow. I was using Firefox for android before and still trying to use that. I mostly want it for the watch cartoons online . com website for Pokemon.

    It would be awesome if you could please help me with this.

    Well, I am using the Galaxy S4 and I tried doing what this page suggests, and it did not work. I downloaded the latest Flash Player for Jelly Bean and it installed correctly but when I proceeded to watch a video on YouTube it still did not work.

    How am I supposed to watch YouTube videos on this phone? This is a bunch of BS!!
