Despite being Adobe Flash Player now officially dead, there is still need for an official working version. Here is yet another attempt. Reported working on Stock Rom 2.3.4 & Opera Mobile as well


  • Root Privileges


  1. Download com.adobe.flashplayer_111102059_11.1.102.59.apk
  2. Download
  3. Install com.adobe.flashplayer_111102059_11.1.102.59.apk but don’t launch it yet!
  4. Copy with RootExplorer or any other file manager lib-files from to /data/data/com_adobe_flashplayer/lib/
  5. Fix permissions for lib-files as on screenshot below.
  6. That’s all. Flash will work in any browser you will use.

  9. works ok, but if you want to easily reenable it after the phone reboot, some files needs to be replaced, this can be easily done via the startup scripts, but if the startup files on your phone have read only attributes, here is quick guide how to reenable flash in a painless way. We will need a aplication that runs scripts via user interface (this below commands can be also pasted via the terminal).

    1. So we download the GScript light app (ie from xda forum) –
    2. we create new script with name ie ‘flashfix’ (‘Needs SU checkmark’ needs to be checked)
    3. we paste following commands:

    echo “Fixing adobe flash…”
    rm /data/data/com.adobe.flashplayer -R
    cp /data/data/com_adobe_flashplayer /data/data/com.adobe.flashplayer -R
    echo done.

    4 run the script and thats it, the flash will work until the phone is rebooted, then we must run the script again.

    If you manage to run ‘rm’ and ‘cp’ commands in your startup scipts, thats even better, you don’t have to use gscript apk, and it will always reactivate after reboot.
    Important !! – The above method works only after succesfull installation of flash explained in this guide.

  10. This al works fine, i have managed to play flash content on my galaxy ace, however when i reboot the phone, all the ‘lib’ files got DELETED. Do You guys managed any workaraound for this? Or is there another method which will be permanent?

  11. Flash player works fine in my browser but after reboot my phone files /data/data/com.adobe.flasplayer/lib/* are deleted. Who deleted it?

  12. Take it all back one last try finally working for those about to instal if you have not rooted then checkout what i put before and follow too the letter on installing adobe flash . Feel like a fool but at the same time trying to keep it easy for others cheers to all. !!perfect!!

  13. just adding that i have exstacted the lib file to data/data /lib/ but the permissons / i can’t find ? there’s not a file called that ?

  14. hi id like 2 say u can get root explorer. apk on (Google) and ur phone must be rooted and u can root it with a bran new rootiing and unrooting tool called (SUPERONECLICK) does a numba of phones i have tryed installing adobe flash but no succes also i can’t find the same root as shone in picture above is this key to the succes of getting it to work help please

  16. First Method worked like a charm on my Samsung Galaxy Ace… Second Method is not working correctly
    I suggest to use “Super Manager” [Available Free in Android Market] for Root exploration

  19. the process is succesful upto step-4 (i used root explorer). but after that i’m not getting any permissions to fix…and the flash isn’t working 😦 …please check this out 😦

    • Dude.

      Use the “Root Browser Lite” by JRUMMY16 to complete the process. I did all that and it still doesn’t work. FUCK THIS PHONE. I shoulda just bought a galaxy S or S2 when I had the choice. Fuck…I might just do that instead. The ace is a good phone but let down by limited hardware. Am done with this shit.

    • Do not change the permission on sd card or it cant change .you must use root explorer and move it to data/data/com.adobe.flasplayer/lib/(put file here)and you can be able to change permissions of . Enjoy ! Hope this helps.I have this problem too but i solved the problem.

        • Download the files above .you must read and understand carefully.remember you must download root explorer(phone must be rooted) so you can find data/data/com.adobe.flasbplayer/lib/ there are four must change the permission of the file called
