Another way to get a version of Flash on your device is by doing some basic hacking. There is a plethora of Flash based ROMs out there, as well as a selection of alternatives that perform exactly the same function.

3.    New updates everywhere

Older devices, and many budget tablets, come with the Flash Player preinstalled on it, and many current users will still have access to the Flash Player. Adobe has promised regular updates for those lucky to have it already on their device.

4.    Pulled from

Play store Adobe decided to pull the app for its Flash Player on the Google Play store a while ago now, with the main reason being a range of unpredictable compatibility issues that affected plenty of devices with the Jelly Bean OS update.

5.    Use a Flash browser

By digging a little deeper in to the app section on the Google Play store you’ll be able to find a whole host of Adobe Flash-equipped browsers. One of the best ones to use is the Skyfire Browser that includes full Flash capabilities alongside a solid browsing experience.

6.    Explore browser add-ons

One of the unique ways you can access Flash-based content on the web is by sourcing an add-on for a mobile browser that enables it to act as a desktop one. Phony for Firefox turns your mobile browser in to the desktop version, letting you view and interact with Flash content.

7.    Security issues

Even before Flash’s transition onto mobile it suffered a wide variety of security issues. Most of these problems have been eradicated from the mobile version, but be sure to have a spyware detector installed just in case.

8.    Audio

A common issue when trying to play a Flash game or video is the lack of sound. For the most part, the problem can be simply resolved by restarting the browser or video, but in some cases you’ll need to download an equalizer app.

9.    Start side loading

The APK file of the Flash Player can be downloaded from several places across the web, enabling you to side load the file directly on to your phone or tablet. Once added, it’s easy enough to install and start using without any hassle. Whenever you start side loading on your device, make sure you only download from a trusted source.

10.  Flash Vesus HTML5

Flash and HTML have long been at loggerheads over plug-in dominance, but with compatibility issues, and a lack of support from the iOS platform, Flash is strongly considered second best to HTML5.
