JayJ’s Easy Flash Install for the Non-Rooted or Rooted Nexus 7Thanks to forum member JayJ for the following information, you can now install Flash on your Nexus 7 without rooting your tablet. You will also find that it works equally well with a rooted Nexus 7. The Google Chrome browser will not support Flash, but xScope Browser combined with a modified Flash apk from XDA Developers will give you the ability to display Flash content on your tablet.Step 1:
Swipe down from the top of your tablet’s screen and tap the 3 sliders to enter “Settings” on your tablet. Then tap “Security” and place a check in the block by “Unknown Sources” and then tap on the “Home” button at the bottom.Step 2:
Go to Google Play, then download and install xScope Browser Here
. If you prefer more handholding with the Flash install xScope Browser Pro at $.99 US Here
Open the xScope Browser and you will be asked if you want to install Flash Player. Accept and you will be taken to XDA Developers where you can download the Adobe_Flash_Player.apk. Next accept the option to run the apk. Note the apk is stored in /sdcard/download if you miss the run option.
I did not use the xScope Browser Pro, so I am uncertain of the additional benefits of Flash install assistance in the pro version.Step 4: Test Flash
The following link will allow you to test your Flash Plugin. Remember to use Flash you will have to access the Flash content through the xScope Browser. Tapping the center of the first test block will prompt your browser choice, then tap the play button and watch the balls rearrange. The second test is a Flash video. Tap Here
to test your Flash install.Enjoy Flash on your Nexus 7.
