There is no flash.
There is no other browser.
2.0.2 was just bug fixes and some minor corrections hoping to fix some of the connection issues and general slowness in SMS and Contacts apps.

You can't install it WITH jailbreak, let alone without...

2) Can i install opera internet browser or anything similar?
Not yet.

3) This 2.0.2 update that ive just installed, what has it actually changed?
Apple gave the standard answer of "bug fixes." There might be a detailed list on Apple's website, I'm not sure.

1) You can't install flash with or without jailbreak as it doesn't exist for the iPhone
2) Same as 1) - there simply isn't currently an alternative browser available
3) Improves stability and (for some) 3G performance

just wondering...WHY would you want opera on the iphone!?
lol
the only reason i put opera on my old s60 phones was for the full web, which obviously is already there on the iphone


jailbreaking is good for apps like video recording and just free apps. I just am not doing it because i like the app store and i trust apple in what there doing as far as video recording and everything goes.
