Update: Manually Install Flash for any Samsung Android Device

Posted on Apr 24 2013 - 5:15pm by Brian

Tired of getting excited to load a video only to see the dreaded blue box with a question mark? The cause of that blue box is due to Android dropping native support of flashironic since that was one of its original selling points. The simple answer to this problem is to get Adobe Flash for your Android phone, but seeing as how it’s no longer available in the Play Store, it’s a bit more trouble than one would think. Don’t fret though, we’ll hold your hand throughout the process!


First, we have to make sure we can sideload the .apk. For more detailed information regarding sideloading, please check our past article.

1) Fire up the Settings menu and select the Security option

2) Select Security. On older this can be found in the Applications sections

3) Scroll down and tick the “Unknown source” box

Next, we have to find the proper .apk file to install flash player on your device.

4) Using your device’s web browser, go to Adobe’s Flash Player Archive and scroll down to find the appropriate version for your device. Conversely, choose one of the downloads below:

5) After the download completes, open the file and install it.

6) Watch that Flash video you’ve been yearning to see!

Let us know how this goes; if you have any questions or comments post ’em below and we’ll try and get to you asap!

5 Comments so far. Feel free to join this conversation.
