How to get Adobe Flash on Android Tablets

How to get Adobe Flash on Android TabletsHow to get Adobe Flash on Android tablets that did not come with it pre-installed?  Many of the tablets using versions of Android prior to 3.0 came with Adobe Flash pre-installed.  However, when Android 3.0 was initially released, there was not a compatible version of Adobe Flash that would work with 3.0.  Shortly thereafter, Adobe Flash was pre-installed on several Android tablets until it was discontinued when a later version of Android was released.  Since Apple’s iOS devices did not support Adobe Flash, many applications were being built in favor of HTML 5 instead. Adobe Flash was available for a short time from Google Play store to download, but it is now no longer available.

You can still manually install Adobe Flash on an Android tablet by following these steps:

  1. Make sure your Android device is connected to the Internet.
  2. Open the Settings menu.
  3. Select Security (or Applications, on older Android OSs).
  4. Place a checkmark next to the “Unknown sources” check box.
  5. Tap OK to confirm your selection.
  6. Close Settings.
  7. Launch the browser.
  8. Search for “flash player archive page” or navigate directly to http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/archived-flash-player-versions.html
  9. On the Archive page, scroll down to “Flash Player for Android archives”
  10. Select a version of Flash Player that is compatible with your Android operating system.
  11. Tap the link to download the Flash Player installer. Download begins automatically.
  12. When download completes, close the browser.
  13. Open Notifications.
  14. Tap “install_flash_player.apk”
  15. When prompted, tap Install.
  16. When installation is finished, tap Done.
