Not anymore as we will in the due course of the article will be discussing about on how you can easily install the latest working flash player  for Galaxy FIT, Galaxy mini, Galaxy ACE and also for Samsung Galaxy Gio. Please be informed that this is not an Official work around released by Samsung Electronics Ltd. and is developed by a third party developer, neither we nor the developer should be held responsible for any damage happened to your device which is very unlikely if you follow all the instructions mentioned in the article.

Requirements to install Flash Player:

Assuming that you have followed all the above mentioned instructions, you are now ready to proceed to the procedure mentioned below.

Procedure to Install Flash player in Samsung Galaxy Devices:

extracted adobe flash files

  • After extracting, you will get an apk file along with the “lib.zip” file. You need to extract the “lib.zip” file too. After this, connect your phone to the computer using the USB cable in the USB Mass Storage Mode.
  • Now, copy the extracted files of “Lib.zip” and also the flash player apk files in your phone.

    3. after that you will find the data / data

    problem can not paste into lib
    use root explorer
    1. delete folder “lib” in the data / data / com_adobe_flashplayer
    2. create a new folder called “lib”
    3. change mounted as r / w to r / o, or otherwise
    4. paste the file in it

    Hi, I’m using galaxy ace gingerbread 2.3.5, When I’m in Root Explorer, I’m unable to set the permissions for all.lib files. It’s shown a WARNING: “PERMISSION CHANGE WAS NOT SUCCESSFUL. PLEASE NOTE THAT SOME FILES SYSTEM (E.G. SD CARD) DO NOT ALLOW PERMISSION CHANGES”. Please guide me..Thank you a lot.

    • Matt

      Are you trying to change eprmissions of the file on the SD card? If so, you need to move the files into the phone directory where the lib files should be, that way I was able to change permissions…

      • Pradeep Neela

        you can change permissions via es explorer

    I use Opera-mobile browser. Can you please help me to overcome this problem.
    thanks in advance.

    Thank you, Nathan T

  • sue

    flash will drain ur battery super fast and if u on a quota based internet plan which most phone carrier apply for their internet package better get a monthly 3gb and above data plan because it eats up ur broadband data big time. my advise is to install skyfire instead which has a build in video player for flash and it will saved 70% data usage over flash but the catch is the skyfire web browser is free,the video license to activate the video player u have to pay…u can try google around to activate the video player (laughing with a devil smile..u know what i mean)… one advantages i found out with this video player/web browser although u live in a country which block certain web site such as youtube, yes the web page will show page not found bla..bla..bla but when u press video button it will analyze and waalllaaa the video pops up, press play and enjoy..btw nice article

    I have bought Samsung Galaxy Ace handset and from the day one its creating a problem.

    Model Number : GT -S5830
    Android Version : 2.3.4
    BaseBand Version : S5830DDKQ6
    Build Number : GINGERBREAD.DDKQ6

    Its ask that Adobe Flash Player Version 11 is not available once I download it its tell that your handset is not compatible.

    I have performed the above the steps still it does not work

    How do I rectify this. Its shocking that I am able to surf You Tube but not able to surf a web site.

    • http://twitter.com/pradeepneela Pradeep Neela

      its a site issue and not a firmware issue, check opening that website in your pc!
