Adobe Flash update

In the spirit of true fragmentation, Adobe has released an update to Flash 10.1.  This update brings Flash to version, and along with whatever bug fixes and optimizations Adobe has made to the application, they've introduced a new twist -- users with devices that have a Tegra 2 chipset are advised to not update to the latest version, but to wait for a special version that will be available "soon."

While this doesn't mean much now, other than for you lucky folks with a Dell Streak 7 or one of the various tablets with the Tegra 2, this kind of thing is the real definition of fragmentation -- certain software that will only run on certain devices.  Here's hoping that Adobe can get things sorted and create one version that works for both Tegra 2 and non-Tegra devices, or that Google can straighten out the market so only applicable updates show to the end-user. 

In the meantime, if you're not sure if your new Android has a Tegra 2 chip, check out our device guide or step into the forumsThanks to everyone who sent this in!

I hope this update fixes the AdFree + 4G = no flash problem on the Evo.

icebike says:

There is not one word on what if fixes, if anything.

All it says is don't install this if you have one of the listed phones.

Google has got to start requiring a statement about what was fixed or changed. And no, "Bug Fixes" is not sufficient.

itch808 says:

That's not a problem they need to fix.

That's you rooting your phone and using a program designed to get around Ads and robbing developers.

Deal with it.

I would love to install this but the samsung epic I bought 5 months ago still doesn't have froyo

r3g says:

Um... If you root there are multiple Froyo ROMs available on XDA...

Update went well on my epic, but I got sick of waiting for sprint/samsung.

junior38 says:

Sprint sucks ass and so does the epic 4g. Thank you

They never said the update would be a *special* or *separate* update. I imagine they'll release a second update that will be for all devices and bring Tegra devices under the umbrella.

DolfanCole says:

So the Tegra 2 is a "superchip"? Nice.

jasco13 says:

Dave4321 says:

Good thing there isn't a single Tegra 2 android device that is being sold yet.

Dave4321 says:

Ok my mistake. There are some off brands like this one. Is this real?

Wesley1 says:

Tegra 2 devices should have flash acceleration, so they will be different to other devices.
