How to install Flash Player on Android Jelly Bean

The Adobe last August marked the end point in an era that identified the Android OS devices as those who “led the mobile web browsing from the” thanks to have Flash Player support, although this is not entirely true since, as is well known, even by Adobe, Flash never worked perfectly, so HTML5 supplant promised for years and leave in oblivion. And that is why managers of Flash Player have surrendered and have dropped support for most platforms, including Android.

The future is HTML5, a platform that works well, is faster, much more stable, and with universal support (with a few exceptions). However, there are still many web pages that run Flash content, although not the largest or popular like all Google web services (YouTube, GMail, etc.) and social networks were among the first to give the jump to HTML5. That is why if you have foreign support Flash on your Android handset, there is still a way, and it’s pretty simple.

For Android devices with OS version 4.0 or lower had already installed Flash Player, the best you can do is not uninstall because currently not on Google Play Store , and I should clarify, never coming back.

But if you’re one of the users who already have some of the latest versions of the operating system, Android Jelly Bean, in either version 4.1 or 4.2, and want to install Flash Player, this simple tutorial is for you.

The terminal will not allow us to install this file without giving the necessary permissions. This is as simple as go to the Settings menu and settings, in this section you access the Security and there we enable the checkbox labeled “Unknown sources”, allowing us to install applications that are not from Google Play.

Finally, we look for the APK file that you downloaded and installed simply by pressing on it.

After these steps, you can begin to view and access such perfection that even websites have Flash content, without any problem.
