As we all know Chrome comes pre-installed for Jellybean instead of the old stock ICS browser (which is a very welcomed addition) on the Nexus 7. Chrome Mobile does not support flash (and it never probably will). Also Adobe has stopped support for any Android version 4.1 and up (regardless of chipset). But lucky for us Tegra 3 has been supported by Adobe before Adobe decided to stop even hardware support.
I don't use flash anymore really, but a lot of people still do. If you want to install flash and have a browser that can use it, follow the instructions below.
As we all know you can side-load the flash APK even though you can't install it straight to from the market.
For the new people to Android who don't know how, here is how to install app if you have the .apk file:
- Go to Settings.
- Go to Security (under Personal)
- Check Unknown Sources (under Device Administration)
- Click OK
Now install Firefox Beta from the Play Store (or download the APK below).
I'm sure there are other browsers that support flash, I'll be testing out quite a few and I can make a list here.
List of browsers that DO support flash on the Nexus 7:List of browsers that DO NOT support flash on the Nexus 7:
- Chrome (The default browser installed)
- Opera Mobile (This crashed on me clicking on a flash video, anyone else can confirm?)
