Download Adobe Flash Player 10.3 for Android – Latest

Adobe Flash 10.3 LogoSeems like Adobe Flash is all set to spread smiles for all the Android phone users as, Adobe unveiled an all new version of Flash Player 10.3. Last time we saw on how you can easily download and install Adobe Flash 10.2 version. The first and foremost question from you will be that what are the added benefits or the enhancements from the previous version and also the compatibility of Adobe Flash 10.3. You will be happy to hear that there are whole new set of customizations and improvements have been made in this 10.3 Android Flash Player release which are stated below.

Enhancements in the latest Flash Player 10.3 version:

  • First and foremost, the Adobe Flash Player now comes along with the security enhancements which provide added security.
  • Many of the Samsung Galaxy S users faced issues where H.264 video at resolutions of 720p and below was not displayed which is now been corrected in this version of 10.3 Adobe Flash.
  • All those android applications which were using Browser Plug-ins like Flash Player in Web View now will no longer need to set android: hardware Acceleration to True in their AndroidMainfest.xml for plug-in output to be rendered.  This was previously an issue on Android 3.0+ only.
  • Frequent crash on the HTC EVO as well as on HTC Evo 4G with some specific video watching has now been fixed
  • Many of the users has an issue with the Video frames being stopped from rendering on the long video streaming which is say about more than 1 hour long, this issue was mostly reported by the Motorola Users and the same has been fixed.
  • Most importantly for all the Gingerbread 2.3 users your device has now been further optimized as this Adobe Flash 10.3 updates NEON optimizations for OMAP4 (Cortex A-9) based devices.

If you are thinking that only brighter part comes with the Adobe Flash 10.3 then you got to give this a thought as Adobe itself released a list of limitations of using this Flash version of 10.3, though Adobe promised to solve all of the below mentioned in the next available update which will be soon released.

Issues and Limitations with Adobe Flash 10.3 version:

  • Users of Galaxy Tab will disable the hardware video decoding sometimes and also all some selected Android devices will have an issue regarding playing H.264 videos that is when you play multiple videos of H.264 on Nexus One only the first video will use the hardware decoder.  All other instances will be decoded in software which may make phone bit laggy and slow.
  • There will be some rendering issues of videos on HTC Desire and HTC Desire HD while playing videos and the issues of hanging and freezing might get reported and also on Galaxy Tab CDMA version breaks the RTMP video playback.
  • While resuming the video playback from the Sleep Mode, the frames in the Video buffer will render very fast till it catches up with the audio stream and also due to some algorithm issues with the power management APIs in Android, the streaming video will continue to play audio while the device is in sleep mode
  • Nvidia driver bug is still present on the Motorola Xoom which will make the browser unresponsive if the browser is put in the background while Flash Player is in Full-Screen mode and also for the users of HTC G2, the flash will stop responding once the keyboard is activated.

Please note that this Adobe Flash 10.3 version supports Android devices which is powered by Android’s Froyo 2.2 or 2.2.1 version, Gingerbread 2.3 and other 2.3 versions and also supports the latest Honeycomb 3 as well as 3.1 version.

  3. Hey,
    I have recently purchased a samsung Galaxy Ace….I ‘ve been experiencing some problems .
    1)It does not support Adobe Flash Player
    2)We cant move applications from phone memory 2 sd card.As the phone memory gets filled up the phone slows down…

    for this i have read all da comments and have finalised 2 upgrade my mobile 2 Gingerbread.
    just wanna know that weather gingerbread has the abv. features. and would it be problem for me if i UPGRADE IT…??????
    ive just taken my phone a week ago .. and m new 2 Android ..
    would be glad if u helped????????????

  4. does it works on my Galaxy Fit?

  5. thankyou.

  6. It is possible to download and install Flash Player 10.2 or 10.3 onto a Galaxy Ace but it will not run as the hardware, CPU and GPU do not meet the minimum requirement to run the Flash Player application.

    The Ace has an 800Mhz ARM11 processor which is nice and fast but has been fitted with an Adreno 200 Graphic Processing Unit, (GPU) for the lower resolution screen employed to keep the price down.

    To run Flash Player 10.2/10.3 you need to have a Dedicated CORTEX A8(ARMv7) processor (with a minimum specification of 550Mhz for VGA or 800Mhz for WVGA) with NEON Technology and fitted with an Andreno 205 GPU for the higher resolution screen.

    A list of devices that will run Flash Player 10.2/10.3 can be found at: http://www.adobe.com/flashplatform/certified_devices/

  9. ok i uninstalled adobe flash 10.3 and went to flash vid site in skyfire……results.-

    skyfire playes the flash videos just the same.

    conclusion……. adobe flash 10.3 will install on to my galaxy ace running gingerbread xx2.3.4

    but wont intergrate into the browser, will rooting the phone make any difference>?

    skyfire does a great job of playing any flash file, (not streaming) so no flash telly.

  10. optomized skyfire vids from any flash site work very quickly and seemlessly with good quality, but its a 3 day trial with option to buy.

  11. what else i was gona mention is that i never tried the skyfire browser with out the adobe flash installed so dont no weather thats makin a diference or no.

  12. hi all i got a galaxy ace 2 days ago , fooked 1 up with rom manager , didnt read enuff and so took back to shop got another, flashed with latest gingerbread 2.3.4 no probs, downloaded the adobe flash file above extracted to my sd card, and it installed fine (wouldnt install with froyo2.2 onboard).
    rebooted phone. downloaded skyfire browser from market.

    now..currently, if i go to a site via android browser, nothing has changed flash files dont play.

    if i use skyfire and click the video button in the browser, it will analyse the vid , optomise it and then play it, but no video playing directly in the browser..

    il let you no if i can get anything else workin.
