Flash Player 10.3 for Samsung Galaxy Ace

The ARMv6 Architecture of Samsung Galaxy Ace’s processor obviously lacks Adobe flash support. But mods keep flying around the internet which sometimes work and sometimes don’t.

For those who don’t know already, flash player is needed to play embedded videos on websites like youtube etc. or flash content on your mobile.

So here is Flash 10.3 which will work with many Custom Roms for Ace. Try it for yourself & report the success here (or in any forum with this page address attached, so that we may track it)

Update: This is not working with stock firmwares upto Android 2.3.4. (Including DDKQ6) It is reportedly working on CM7 beta.
