How To Video
Run Flash on iPhone and iPad with FrashWe'll show you how to view some, but not all, Flash content on your jailbroken iPhone and iPad.
Apple's refused to allow Flash to run on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch but now you can do it if you're willing to jailbreak your device. I'm Brian Tong and I'll show you how to install an app called Frash that will allow you to view Flash content on your iDevices. Now, you'll first need to jailbreak your device which is legal, but voids your Apple warranty with Apple, so to find out how to do that, you can find the video at cnettv.com. Now, let's get to it. You have a jailbroken device and first we'll launch this Cydia app. Select the Manage tab and then select Sources. You'll see a list of sources, hit the Edit button and then Add. Enter in this url and then once you're done with that, add Source. It will update and when it's done, hit Return to Cydia. When the installation finishes, go to the Search tab and then find Frash and install that application. Reboot your iDevice, but once it's up and running, you'll have the ability to view some, but not all, Flash content on your iDevice. So far we've seen it run best on car websites and restaurant websites, and, yes, those advertisements you love to hate, they display most of the time, but it's a basic Flash you're getting here and all the websites with a Flash-based video player did not display content or would crash, including our own gamespot.com, but there you have it. I'm Brian Tong with your how-to for installing and viewing Flash content on your iDevices. Use it wisely.
