The tussle between Apple and Adobe will potentially never get resolved. That means Flash lovers will never be able to access Adobe Flash on their iDevices for quite some time to come. That’s if you are not willing to jailbreak your iPhone.
Popular iPhone hacker, Comex, has announced that he has successfully ported Frash – the jailbreak utility that lets users run Flash 10 on the iPad – to the new iPhone 4. Of course, as you guessed it, the process will require you to first jailbreak your iPhone. Do remember that though jailbreaking has been made legal in countries like the US, the procedure can still void your Apple warranty and can also potentially slow down your device performance.
Nevertheless, if you have made up your mind, you can first proceed to JailbreakMe.com, the website that provides a browser-based jailbreaking utility to break into your iPhone OS. Once you are done with the jailbreak, you can follow these steps below
- Launch Cydia and open the ‘Manage’ tab. Tap on the ‘Edit’ option
- Add the following repository : http://repo.benm.at/
- Now navigate to the the ‘Search‘ tab and key-in Frash. Tap on the Frash app and tap ‘Install‘ to install the application
- Reboot the iPhone to complete the process
You are done. Flash content can now be accessed from the websites on Mobile Safari. If you need more help with the installation, watch the video below.
