Might be possible using Javascript as well with Smokescreen but I have no idea if that has been realised in an app for Android. – Arda Xi Sep 23 '10 at 20:05

Android 2.0 does not support Adobe Flash. Adobe Flash is only supported on Android 2.2, a.k.a "Froyo".

However, check out this app: Skyfire 2.0 for Android. It is a browser, which is, by magic, able to play some embedded flash videos:

  • Supports Flash web video with patent-pending adaptive streaming technology for smooth playback
  • Pinch to zoom (on Android 2.0 and above)
  • Multi-tab browsing - open up to eight windows and browse simultaneously using visual tabs
  • Choose to load full desktop webpages or mobile optimized versions
  • Clear session history easily upon exit to maintain anonymous browsing

  • I have no first hand experience with this app (I already have Android 2.2 on my Nexus One!) . Use at your own risk.

This is the correct answer. There is absolutely no way to run Flash on 2.0, except through an app such as Skyfire that handles the rendering for you. – th3dude Jul 28 '10 at 20:03

I have seen a few "Flash Lite" binaries floating around the net for Android 2.0.

It's not Flash, it's only a partial version with fewer features.

Unfortunately the only binary link I have is an update for the Pandigital Novel; the update is probably specifically for that model, but the binary inside may work on other devices. (If you want it, comment & I'll update my answer. It's hosted on mediafire, not adobe's website which means I'm not sure how much I trust it.)

Yes, there is a beta of the Flash player available for download on Android 2.2.

Here are the details:
