    Flash games not working after 2.2 update

    So I have a Motorola Droid and just yesterday received the update to 2.2. Ecstatic, I installed it... only to find out that Flash isn't automatically installed with it. Well, I didn't let that deter me and I d/led 10.1 directly from Adobe's site** and sucessfully installed it to the phone. Yay!

    My next step was to head directly to Facebook's site, pull up a Flash game, and start playing it. My eyes grew in awe and wonder as the Flash box for the game successfully pulled up and showed the loading screen. And it loaded... and loaded... and loaded. Then, right as it was about to finish loading... stopped.

    I blinked a few times, refreshed the page to let it load again. After loading...and loading...and loading, it did it again.

    Is this a common occurance to those who have tried this? Is it that the phone isn't powerful enough to play Flash games?

    tl;dr -- Can 2.2 play Flash games? y/n

    **Edit to add: per response below, I actually did not download straight from the site. Poor memory on my part. Sorry!

    Are you sure you installed the correct file?

    You can get the Flash .apk from Adobe directly? First time I've heard that. I've had to download and install the beta releases from other sources.

    Be happy to provide you with one so you can play till the official build hits the market, if you'd like.

    Ah, you know what? I spoke too quickly. Looking back at yesterday's events, I remember now that I didn't download directly from Adobe. It was a .apk file linked from some blog or forum I had run across. Adobe had said that 10.1 would be available for those with 2.2 'very soon'.

    Sorry for that mix-up.

    That said, could it be that it's a beta release and might that be why it doesn't work for games? That could definitely explain it...

    If you don't have the latest version, it might not work. Want?

    Yes, please.

    Also, would I have to directly uninstall the Flash I have on there currently to install the newer one?

    Nope, once you start the install it'll update automatically. You do have a file browser like Astro installed, yes?

    Yes, I do. And thanks for the tip. My faith in Droid's abilities increases each day.

    @Mbk -- Thanks for the link. I'll d/l once I get the chance. Very much appreciated.
