  • Flash for iOS Official: Comex's "Frash" Project
    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=adouTnXgelE]YouTube - Frash for iOS[/ame]



    Comex has amazed the jailbreak scene once again by officially naming and demonstrating his Flash player for Safari in iOS, "Frash." It is actually a port of the Flash player available for Android 2.2, the first release of Android to officially support Flash (aside from the Flash Lite used on SenseUI phones). The source for the Frash project is actually publicly available right now on his GitHub, and while it apparently only works for iPad at the moment, he has plans to get it working on the 3G S and eventually the 4, as well.

    Most of us are aware of the previous solutions to getting Flash on the iPhone, including Javascript "Flash players" like Smokescreen, or web-side rendering like CloudBrowse, but this would be the first REAL Flash player for iPhone, integrated right into MobileSafari.

      Follow the instructions provided here. The only thing you need to watch for is when you go to find thelibflashplayer.so file, make sure you download the file from the second MegaUpload link, not the first. If you're getting a lot of errors even after this, remember that video support hasn't been added yet. A lot of games and whatnot work though. A good place to try out Flash is at Homestar Runner.

      Glad to hear emerging news about flash on iPhone. I never really use it, but another nice little thing to have even if I know I'll rarely use.

      Can't wait to hear news about it for the 3GS.

      I wonder what causes such a difference in the experience from users? i have had the opposite effects as you and almost everywhere i have gone it has worked just fine. I would give it a 7 out of 10 at this point.

      besides a little choppy video and an on and off switch im somewhat pleased with it. However i don't myspace so can't speak on that site.

      It works...Kinda, still a bit buggy. With this and the UserAgent Fake Cydia app, still can't Hulu to correctly play. Still says you are running on iPad, any way around this?

      Comex had updated his frash, would someone please make us a new deb thanks.

      As quoted. NOTE: Someone apparently made a .deb of frash. *I don't necessarily have objections to a binary package, but everyone should realize that it's alpha quality at best, and please, please post it on a repository instead of posting a .deb everyone*will share that will be obsolete in a few hours when I make a one-line fix that vastly improves compatibility by annulling some stupidity on my part. ;p Read more

      hopefully someone will have an idea on what will correct this for those of us having this error

      thanks

      UPDATE:

      i hit the first APK in google search and it did not work but then i went for the second one on megaupload and replaced it and now it is working.

      thanks for the info everyone

      i found that it also works in my preferred browser Perfect Browser as well. there is a screenshot of it working on my iPad from ExpeditersOnline.com Expedited Trucking Owner Operator Careers and Truck Sales where there is also a flash video and the video audio is perfect but it seems the framerate is the problem cause it lags.

      ooh i should also mention that the screenshot is from my iPad i just have it loaded up with the OS X finder as my task bar



      just for fun here is my iPad desktop screenshot and i have no other pages of apps everything is here and i love it this way.

      how did you get that look?

      Frash has been released and is ready to be installed. I just found it on the internet but i see somebody on mmi has already posted it before me so here's the link so I can give proper credit.

      Frash (Flash) for iphone 4 has just been released!!

      Also found that there is a cydia repo for automatically installing just in case you don't want to do it manually, but i'm not sure how credible it is as I have not used it yet.
