    Question No Flash for Tab2 10.1!

    Several issues here.

    1. why is Samsung still marketing the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 as Flash supported? It isn't and they know it isn't. They are the ones that told me it wasn't.

    2. Samsung provided me this Adobe URL with the specifics. they've know for some time an still continue to market this device as Flash supported. Adobe roadmap for the Flash runtimes | Adobe Developer Connection

    3. without flash, my Amazon movies can't be viewed and I can't use my Amazon membership for the Tab2. Google play's movie selection is minimal compared to Amazon.

    4. what else am I going to find that won't work?

    5. still undecided on whether or not to return it.

    any advice.

    Which browser are you using? Some support flash better than others, but it does work....

    Take a look as quoted from Janner:

    How to get Adobe Flash Player
    1. Tap the Play Store app in your app drawer
    2. Search for Adobe Flash Player - if it has been removed & is not available to you, then you can download it directly from Adobe.


    Adobe Direct Download Click/tap that link.

    Scroll down the page until you reach the Android section, specifically...

    For Honeycomb Tabs... this part... "Flash Player for Android 2.x and 3.x archives"
    The download you want is... Flash Player 11.1 for Android 2.x and 3.x (11.1.111.24)

    For ICS tabs...this part... "Flash Player for Android 4.0 archives"
    The download you want is... Flash Player 11.1.for Android 4.0 (11.1.115.27)


    3. Install (sideload) the app.
    4. Open the browser
    5. Select Settings - Advanced - Enable plug ins - select either "always on" or "on demand"

    When you open your Flash compatible browser next time - e.g. the stock browser - Flash objects will display automatically if you have selected "always on" & will require you to tap the flash object if you selected "on demand".

    If you are running another Flash compatible browser, there should be a similar option in the settings of that app, somewhere.


    How to "sideload" or install Adobe Flash Player (or any other .apk file)

    1. In settings, security, allow the installation of apps from unknown sources.
    2. Download or Copy the Adobe Flash Player .apk file to your device.
    3. Open the File Manager & tap the Adobe Flash Player .apk file you just downloaded to install it.
    4. Go back to settings, security, & untick (disallow) the installation of apps from unknown sources.


    Other Flash compatible browsers under ICS or Honeycomb
    Dolphin
    Firefox
    Opera Mobile
    Boat

    All free from the Play Store.

    That should get you going...

    I am more ticked at Adobe than Samsung. It was Adobe's decision to stop supporting Flash on the Android OS. I didn't consider the marketing material concerning Flash when I picked up my Tab, as I knew if it was available, it potentially wouldn't be after future updates.

    Now that Flash has abandoned the Android platform, users of Android should do their part and shun sites that use Flash... I say that, yet I know that if a site/function I really want to use requires Flash, I will side load it.

    Welcome to the site. I tend to agree that Adobe is the culprit here.
