Flash Player for Android Support
Unfortunately, not all phones can run Flash content. There is a strict hardware requirement and Android OS software requirement.
- Device must have an ARM v7 (Cortex) Processor (Those with Qualcomm Snapdragon, TI OMAP3, or Samsung Galaxy S Hummingbirds will work).
Froyo OS (Android Version 2.2).
Some phones that are capable of running Flash well are the Nexus One, Motorola Droid Series, HTC Evo, Incredible, G2, and Samsung Galaxy S phones, provided you have the right Android OS.
Once you have verified that you can run Flash Player, it can be downloaded from the Android Market or by navigating to get.adobe.com/flashplayer on your Android browser.
If your phone is capable of running Flash, but you don't have Froyo yet, consider rooting your phone and installing the latest version of a custom ROM like CyanogenMod version 6, which is built on Froyo (2.2).
Some of the phones which will never be able to (fully officially) support Flash because of hardware limitations are the:
- HTC Hero
- Samsung Moment
- T-Mobile HTC G1
- T-Mobile HTC myTouch 3G Series
- Motorola CLIQ
- Samsung Behold II
- HTC Droid Eris
- Motorola Devour
