    Sorry if this is an obvious question, I'm kinda new to apple's world!

    Is it possible to get flash player support by jailbraking my devices?

    Thanks in advance, and sorry for any grammar mistake.

    I've always wondered why this is the case. If Flash on the iPad is really the Holy Grail, why no jailbreak version?

    Thanks for the answers. Might try the given options.

    BTW, the reason I'd lime to have flash support is so that I can watch videos of an online course I attend. This feature would make my iPad a true notebook replacement.

    Frash never even made it to beta--it's buggy, doesn't work, and the dev dropped it, so don't waste your time on it. Skyfire doesn't require a jailbreak--and there are other App Store options as well.

    ^ what he said, or iSwifter $4.99.

    I found iSwifter less stuttery for general flash content and live streams (such as justin.tv) although this is only at 360p, but puffin to work better with flash VODS, YMMV.

    Photon web browser is better than iswifter or puffin. Best flash browser out right now for iOS devices.
