How to manually install Adobe Flash Player on your Android device

Requirements: To install the Flash Player you need a device running any Android version from 2.2 (Froyo) to Jelly Bean. If you wish to double-check the device's operating system, navigate to Settings > About Phone / About Tablet. It is recommended that Jelly Bean users look for the stock browser, since Google Chrome on Android will not support the Flash Player. Additionally, users must check for app drawer for the browser or the Internet.

Check the box marked "Unknown Sources". To do so, navigate to Settings > Applications on Android 2.2 / 2.3 or 3.x devices. For devices running Android 4.x, navigate to Settings > Security

  • Download the flash for android (APK) app
  • Bring down notification area and tap on file to start installation. Tap on Install to confirm installation
  • Upon completion of installation, open stock browser
  • On devices running Android 3.0 or above, navigate to Men > Settings > Advanced > Enable plug-ins. In order to permanently activate Flash content, choose "Always on". To enable it on occasion, choose "On Demand". On Android 2.2 or 2.3 devices, go to Menu > Settings > Enable plug-ins

  • Remember to uncheck "Unknown Sources" to keep your device secure

Congratulations... you now have Adobe Flash Player installed on your device
