help with installing apps that need flash
« on: August 09, 2012, 03:14:43 PM »
I'm probably not going to explain this well, but I'll give it a whirl...

I have flash on my NON ROOTED N7.  I have verified that it works.

I want to install an app that needs flash to work.  If I try to get the app through google play it will say that it is not compatible so it won't let me download it.

If I try to get it at the kindle app store on my N7 the app won't come up in a search for it.   So I purchased (free) the app on my laptop and it said open android device to download it, but it doesn't show on my N7.


So the question is...is there a way to work around having an app coming up as non compatible because of Jellybean (this is my guess..i really don't know if this is why) ..and getting it to download/install on my N7?

Sideloading is probably your best bet, either install on another rooted device that you can copy the apk from or Google search...

I agree with JayJ, you can possibly sideload the app. You will need a copy of the apk file, which is basically the installation file for the app (filename.apk). Then after transferring the file to your N7, you can use a file manager like Astro to navigate to the file and run it to install on your N7. There is no guarantee that it will work, because by design Jelly Bean does not run flash, but this is the only option that I am aware of, at this time.
