Adobe Flash Player updated to 10.3

Adobe has updated its Flash Player to version 10.3, squashing a bunch of bugs and introducing a brand new control panel. It’s a welcome addition that lets you better manage the many Flash Player settings, including camera, microphone and Local Shared Objects settings. More importantly, one can now set how Flash tracking cookies are being handled and fine-tune other privacy, security and storage settings.

Also important, Flash Player 10.3 now supports auto-update notification for Mac OS X. The new aplet is a native addition to the system-wide control panel on Mac OS X, Windows and Linux, Adobe said. The team wrote in a blog post that Flash Player 10.3 also includes support for Android 3.1 devices.

Install flash on iPhone and iPad.

A while back we posted a guide on How to get flash on the iPad and iPhone 4, while the guide was very helpful it did look like a rather daunting task, however thanks to Cydia repository Benm.at, the whole process just became much easier. If you want to install Frash on your jailbroken iOS device, it’s now as simple as following these steps:

1. Open Cydia > Manage > Sources
2. Edit source and add http://repo.benm.at
3. Search Frash and install it.

If you did this correctly then you should have flash running on your device.

How to get flash to work on the iPad

ipad no flash

As you might remember we recently posted an article about flash for the iPad. Now, Engadget has the download link to the first version of Frash (0.01) which allows you to play games and other Flash content on your jailbroken iPad, unfortunately however it currently doesn’t support video playback. According to sources however the developers are currently working on a future release.

If you are interested in installing Frash on the iPad then here is a quick guide.

You will need the following:
– Jailbroken iPad with Open SSH installed;
– The Frash .deb file. (24MB download);
– An app to access the iPad’s file system

Step 1)Once you’ve downloaded Frash, open the Media folder in /var/root. Go create one if it’s not there.
media root
Step 2) Inside Media, create a Cydia folder. Inside Cydia, create an AutoInstall folder.
Step 3) Copy the .deb file in there.

*Warning*

Watch out – you don’t want to screw up your iPad file system. Don’t mess with system folders and files you don’t know.

Step 4)Once you’ve uploaded Frash, reboot your iPad. You can easily do this using SBSettings, which you can download from Cydia.

Step 5)Once the iPad is rebooted, go open a page with some Flash content on it (but again, no video yet).

The F? means that flash is running on your iPad.

Step 6)To enable it (pretty much like ClickToFlash on Mac OS X) tap on it and Flash will load. Audio and video are in there, controls are pretty smooth and stable even though it’s a first release.

Of course as always we will keep you posted up to date on future updates with video playback support.

Getting Flash to work on the iPad…

We have been waiting for this news for a LONG time, but finally here it is, FLASH FOR THE iPAD, even though you will need to jailbreak your iPad in order for this to run, it sure does rock!

After having ported Flash for the iPhone, the guy who released the Spirit untethered jailbreak tool for the  iPhoneiPad and iPod touch has now managed to run “real” Flash content right on the jailbroken Apple iPad. He calls is Frash, and in essence it is nothing more than a port of Adobe Flash runtime for Android running on iPad using a compatibility layer.

We have added a video below to prove that this isn’t just some kind of hoax. The YouTube description of the video explains everything about the port as follows.

Frash is a port of the Adobe Flash runtime for Android to the iPhone, using a compatibility layer, by comex ( http://twitter.com/comex ). Frash can currently run most Flash programs natively in the MobileSafari browser. Frash currently only runs on the iPad, but support for other devices (3GS+ only due to technical restrictions) is planned, as well as support for iOS 4.

And here is the video of it in action..
