Adobe Flash Player 11 For Stock Android Firmwares

Question :
I own a Samsung Galaxy Mini and heard that it doesn't support official adobe flash player app. I would really love to see flash sites on my device so can you tell me how can I run flash on my handset with stock firmware. I've heard that flash player works on custom android ROMs, so I thought it just might work with stock Gingerbread too.

Reply :
Yes, adobe flash player works fine on custom roms on galaxy mini as well as on other device with ARM v6 CPU. However, I am not sure if it works well on stock Gingerbread firmware. But, you sure can give this a try and see if the flash player works fine on your stock Gingerbread ROM.
Download the files from step 1 and 2 below and then follow rest of the steps to install flash player on your device.
1. Download Adobe flash player version 11 : Adobe_Flash_Player_11.0_(11.0.1.152).apk

2. Download Lib files : Lib.zip

3. Install the flash player app on your handset using adb install command or by copying it to sdcard and then installing it manually.

4. Now, extract the lib.zip file and you will get few lib*.so files.

4. Then, Copy all these lib (*.so) files to /data/data/com.adobe.flashplayer/lib directory(folder).

4. Set permission of lib files as rw-r-r --Read & Write access for Owner and Read only access for Group and Others-- using Root explorer ( I believe you have rooted phone). Or if you are ok with terminal run this command in your terminal emulator or in ADB shell :
busybox chmod -R 644 /data/data/com.adobe.flashplayer/lib

5. Reboot your smartphone and then run a browser and visit any flash site to see if it works.

That's all. You are now ready to enjoy flash within your android device. If the above mentioned steps don't help you then make sure your browser supports flash and flash plugin is not set to off. Dolphin HD and Firefox are great browsers so just try with them. Also, if you are sure everything is set correctly and followed the procedure above correctly but if flash still doesn't appear in the sites then try again by rooting your device.

It should now work fine since someone already tested it a confirmed it to be working. However, do let me know if it works or not at the comments below.

The lag is probably because of low RAM and CPU. Also, it is to be noted flash is not meant to be supported on ARM v6 CPUs. Considering that it's great.
