Flash Player 10.2 now available for mobile devices

Flash Player 10.2 is now available for download on Android Market.  This is a production GA (General Availability) release for Android 2.2 (Froyo) and 2.3 (Gingerbread) devices and an initial beta release for Android 3.x (Honeycomb) tablets that include at least Google’s 3.0.1 system update.*  To see if your device is certified for Flash Player 10.2, visit: http://www.adobe.com/go/cd1.

The beta of Flash Player 10.2 for Android 3.x is an exciting release that brings a full web browsing experience, including video, games and other interactive content, to the latest Android tablets. We have been working very closely with Google through the development of this beta to ensure tight integration and optimization between Flash Player 10.2 and new OS and browser capabilities.

Improvements include:

  • Performance enhancements to take advantage of new hardware in both Android 3.x tablets, as well as existing hardware in many Android 2.2 and 2.3 devices
  • Tight integration with the new Android 3.x browser to treat Flash content as part of the web page instead of as a separate “overlay.”  This results in improved scrolling of web pages and the ability to display pages in the way intended by the page designer, including new support for compositing HTML and other web content over Flash Player rendered content.
  • Automatic soft keyboard support to simplify text entry for rich mobile and multi-screen experiences

We are working to complete additional optimizations of the interaction between Flash Player and the new browser before releasing a production GA version of Flash Player 10.2 for Android 3.x in the coming weeks, at which point we intend to enable hardware acceleration and Stage Video support in the production GA release.

These optimizations are expected to provide a better “embedded” in-browser experience, comparable to the full screen experience with this beta, and to also provide improved playback of many 720p high definition videos (including full screen). In the meantime, the best way to experience the performance potential of this beta and to enjoy an immersive Flash content experience is to view Flash content full screen.**

We hope you enjoy all of the rich web experiences that Flash Player 10.2 delivers to Android devices.  As always, you can visit m.flash.com <http://m.flash.com> for great examples of websites which show off what you can do on your device with Flash Player.

* Note, today’s release includes the security update addressing the Flash Player vulnerability announced on March 14: http://www.adobe.com/support/security/advisories/apsa11-01.html

** The best way to switch to full screen mode is to use buttons provided by many content providers, but it is also possible to tap content once, followed by a long tap, to bring down a button in the upper left corner which can be tapped to force full screen mode. For best performance with the beta we recommend viewing video in 480P or below.  Improved 720P video playback will be included in the production GA release of Flash Player 10.2 for Android 3.x.

      When I went to settings- manage apps- Adobe. All options are greyed out and there’s no cache like it hasn’t been used. I’m not a wizz with all this stuff, but I’m not a nincompoop either.lol. any info on gettin this right would be greatly appreciated.

    I am happy to finally have flash player for my new Xoom BUT, it does not work with Fronterville on Facebook. Plus some web pages seem to be affected and don’t work correctly. This is a big problem for me as getting the Xoom was so I could be with my family and still keep up on Fronterville (Facebook) without be suck in another room away from my family. Please find a fix for this so games on Facebook work.

    Thank you!!!!,,

  14. Awesome news. Finally out.

  15. It runs amazingly in my Desire HD. I was impressed to see heavy Flex applications running on my DHD web-browser! Excellent work!

    • Ken says:

      Thanks Ken

    • yes please, come on Adobe, the Windows Phone 7 operating system has been out for a fair amount of time now and yet you are dragging your feet on releasing the updated and much needed flash player for this device. COME ON NOW, THIS IS GETTING RIDICULOUS!!!

  46. Jerry says:

    HTC Desire and Desire HD have a serious memory leak issue with Flash 10.2. Users are advised to downgrade back to 10.1. Not sure who is to blame, but it’s a tragedy that Adobe didn’t fully test this on this very popular phone before releasing 10.2.

    • Antonio Flores says:

      Hi Jerry,

      I’d like to better understand the memory issue you’re seeing, but don’t seem to have a valid email address for you. Please respond with a valid email address where I can contact you. Thank you.

      Antonio

    Damn shame no flash adobe on I-Pad. When ?

  52. Dave White says:

    Hi Antonio, Jerry is indeed correct, there is a MAJOR memory leak problem on phones in the HTC Desire family (including G2 aka Desire Z). You only have to read the comments on the Android Market to see this. Basically it causes complete freezes and lockups, sometimes leading to the battery having to be pulled out to fix. This was not a problem on 10.1.

    Regards,

    Dave White

      Thanks for your feedback. We are investigating are in the process of investigating this issue.

    this update is worthless there is no armv6 support. my htc aria is just as powerful the then most armv7 phones. lots of people want armv6 support you should listen to the community.

    I installed it on my HTC Desire running Froyo (Android 2.2) and it has a serious memory leak. Everytime I enter an internet site containing “Flash” animations the phone memory is reduced and reduced. Only reboot helps. Where can I download on older version ?

    • Tom K says:

      Installed in Desire and noticed it use 12mb of phone memory just to install. assume 10.1 was part of the last upgrade to 2.2 and still sits in the rom Too much memory to give away for me. Upgrade can be uninstalled like any other application Hope it will be part of 2.3 and the Desire memory leak reported by some users is fixed.

  60. Markesium says:

    I mean still!! You killing Android 2.1 devices out there. I have an LG Optimus GT540 which is more than capable at running flash even though its factory capped at 600MHz which can b rooted and put up to 750-800Mhz!! (nearly 1Ghz). Surely can’t you develop something for the android 2.1 devices atleast the 10.1 flash for us? We are no different to 2.2 users.

    Theres recently an .apk that has been released about Flash 10.1 for Android 2.1 devices. Now i’ve downloaded mine followed on-screen instructions yet I cannot get the Flash to work, theres still a blue lego cube with 2 “?”. I was wondering that did you purposely make the Flash for only the phones such as Motorola or HTC??
    And if you can help me get this Flash to work, then please reply.

  61. Vincent Poy says:

    My comment is that in all versions of Adobe Flash for Android ever released and in beta, excluding this one which has already been leaked, my issue is on my Motorola Droid 1 with froyo 2.2 FRG83G or any other build of froyo for that matter, flash will play fine and then the entire flash process appears to get killed by the OS which also kills any browser I use, stock and Dolphin HD at the same time as the phone runs out of memory but flash will work fine if I use swapper which does a file based vm/swapfile so obviously, flash is using too much resources.

  62. Gabi says:

    Bye bye Flash. I just uninstalled the flash 10.2 and the phone web browsing backs to the good behavior. I will wait for a fixed version. Sorry.

    About The software versions:
    Android: 2.2
    Kernel:2.6.32.15-leedroid_2.3
    Browser version: WebKit 3.1

    Somebody needs more ? Please ask for it.

    Hmm.. so flash works.. sort of. Xfinity, Hulu, and other streaming sites still not working on the Xoom. I see now why Steve Jobs was right about flash and mobile devices.

  65. phil says:

    Is it realistic expectation to add app2sd functionality? A lot of popular phones lack sufficient on-board storage and this upgrade packs a 12mb footprint… it’s a far bigger consideration than many app makers give it credit for…

    Why are you not support ARMv6?

  70. Bill S. says:

    Does not work with Samsung Intercept at all. The install is blocked by adobe, and manually installing the .APK is blocked by the phone, even when installing unknown apps is turned on.

    I blame Samsung and Virgin Mobile more than Adobe, but some of the fault lies with Adobe as well…

    The reason why you can’t stream on your device is because xfinity, hulu, etc; blocks mobile devices by browser type. Seems like in the future it will be a pay service. Your phone is fully capable of doing these things and in fact was until Hulu caught on a few years back. Should be free like on a PC but I guess if you can make a quick buck off it…

  90. Myles says:

    Anyone know if there is an Adobe Flash Player for the Virgin Mobile LG Optimus V (Android 2.2.1), and if so how to go about downloading and installing it, and getting it working/running correctly?

    I can’t find Adobe Flash Player in the Android Market on my phone anywhere, not even when I have the box checked to allow non market/unknown source apps to be downloaded and installed!

    My device is more than able to support flash, I can find many apps in the Andriod Market, on my Virgin Mobile LG Optimus V, that say they require Adobe Flash Player 10.1 or newer in order to run, as well as a couple other apps that say they support a few forms of flash, but don’t work with any of those that specifically say they require Adobe Flash Player 10.1 or newer!

    For this reason, and the fact that my device can, and does, run youtube and all video, audio, etc. apps/files that don’t use Adobe Flash Player, and that Adobe Acrobat Reader and Adobe AIR are both easily found in the android market on my phone, as well as flash box and other plug-ins for Adobe Flash Player, just goes to prove that Adobe Flash Player must be comparable with the Virgin Mobile LG Optimus V, otherwise these other apps, plug-ins for and apps that require Adobe Flash Player, would not be compatable and therefore not show up in the android market on this phone!

    That, and the fact that both my parents work on computers (one with programming other with hardware and other stuff concerning the inside, outside, operating of, and how the system is built and what it is capable of doing and running) and themyself

This all just goes to show and prove that I for sure know my stuff and what I am talking about very very well, 100%!

    Please solve this problem with no Adobe Flash Player (10.1 or newer) being available in the Android Market on the Virgin Mobile LG Optimus V as soon as possible, Thanks!

When will adobe release the security fixes for that platform and also release a stable and supported Flash 10 player? The one used in the demo is just not stable so I reverted backto the original nokia provided Flash 9.
