    Open cydia and uninstall Frash, respring or reboot your device and you should have it uninstalled

    As far as I'm aware, there is no such thing as flash for iOS devices. Apple will not work together with adobe to develop flash for the devices. I think flash has been stopped for android OS too for quite some time

    Yup Flash is dead. In fact, Adobe is pushing a new software they created which coverts a website's flash content to HTML5.

    that's neat! I wonder how that would work for the flash content that involve dragging (such as flash content games). Granted, I don't play them but I'm curious to know how that would work with touch. How shall it differentiate between dragging in the game or scrolling/swiping the webpage.

    If you do need to view websites that still are using flash content, you can try a third party browser like Photon, which is available in the App Store. It works pretty well.

    As of right now it will not work on flash games. Sorry I should have mentioned that.

    I didn't have good experiences with Photon. I suggest trying Puffin browser, which imo is way better.

    Frash has not been updated or used since the 1st Ipad came out.. Frash was a old comex project. on another note even Adobe is starting to abandon flash.

    I agree, a couple years ago when flash was more important, I used Puffin. But nowadays, I never visit a website that requires flash so I just use Safari. I'm shocked at how much better my safari experience has been on 6.1.2. It's sooo much better on 6.1.2 than it ever was on 5.1.1. I only use my beloved Dolphin Browser to download files when iFile doesn't work in safari.

    But yea, I co-sign puffin. They have a 2 week trial too.

    If you don't mind me asking, what's the big difference in safari between iOS 5.1.1 and iOS 6.1.2?

    The last safari I used was with iOS 4.1 and it was a nightmare compared to iOS 3.1.2's safari. But it was more so the device than the OS (2nd gen iPod touch; constant crashes/lagginess due to the lack of RAM)

    Its just noticeably faster and smoother really. No real hang ups and my interactions with text fields are less of a struggle.

    Basically it's just a much better experience than it was on 5.1.1.
