As many of you know by now, Adobe Flash isn’t supporting Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, but there is a solution and it’s very easy. There are actually two solutions depending on which device you have. For anyone running Jelly Bean on anything other than the Nexus 7, you can simply side load the APK and enable some plugins. For those of you with the Nexus 7, you will also need to install the stock Browser since the default Browser, Chrome, doesn’t support plugins. Hit the break for all the instructions and download links.
