Jailbroken iPhones get basic Adobe Flash support The popular developer/hacker Comex, the man behind the Web-based iPhone jailbreaking site, has released Frash today for the smartphone, certain iPod Touch models and the iPad allowing for Adobe Flash support on jailbroken devices.
Apple CEO Steve Jobs has long said that the company will not support Flash on "i" devices.

If you own the iPhone 3GS with iOS4, the iPhone 4, the iPod Touch 3G or the iPad you can now run Flash from within the Safari browser.

The installation is pretty simple. Add a custom Cydia repository, install the program and reboot your "i" device.

While the app is a great start, the developer is quick to note that the beta (version 0.02) can only support very simple Flash animations, making it useless for the most part unless you love invasive Web ads.

Didn't they listen to Steve Jobs? He said quite clearly that his POS devices don't have the power to do flash; that is why they blocked it. It is not the same as his insane anti-BluRay rants; his rants against flash are actually rants against his own terrible products that couldn't run flash even if Apple wanted them to.

LOL.

Well, any thing to piss off Steve Jobs any way. Or at least confuse him.
