How To Install Adobe Flash Player On Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean

flash player androidAs you know, Adobe has discontinued development on Flash Player for mobile browsers, which means no flash on the latest version of Android. Earlier, the official news made its way stating that flash Player will not be developed for Android’s next version, 4.1 Jelly Bean, and from August 15 of last year, you couldn’t be able to install it from the Google Play store. Adobe has blocked new installs of Flash on Android, fundamentally eliminating its presence from the mobile world. Now the question is, how can we get flash player on Android Jelly Bean if we are not able to find it in the Google Play Store? Don’t you worry, we will provide you the solution in just a couple of steps.

  1. On your Android Jelly Bean device we need to enable the security so it allows you to install an apk file. To do this, head down to Settings option and press security. Then after getting into security settings, under “device administration” find “unknown sources” and check mark it to enable it. 
  2. Now go to this latest download link for Adobe Flash player, and download it to your Android 4.1 Jelly Bean device( thanks to this thread on XDA Developers for keeping flash alive).
  3. After the download finishes, go to the location where the file is saved on your device or if you first downloaded the apk onto your computer then copy it to the device and navigate to the location where you copied. If you downloaded it directly to the device than the file will be in your download folder.

    install yes
  5. We are done!

Hey, I've tried the install from Adobe Flash archives - followed all the steps right - and tried it direct from this link and still won't install - say's that it doesn't recognize the file type, unsurported file and cannot open file.

It worked on my Nokia Lumia 610 Windows phone but I've switched to a droid:I have a Samsung Galaxy III mini with Android 4.1.2. 

Any ideas is appreciated. Caroline


This still will not work on my Droid Razr Maxx HD?  Any suggestion.
