    Adobe updated their flash player 2-3 days ago. Current version is working with flash video on my RAZR ICS. Yay!

    Find it on the web version of the play store

    I can confirm that it is finally working correctly for me as well (at least on my favorite "adult" site LOL)...

    I updated Adobe Reader and now it seems to work correctly.

    Yea...just updated Flash a few minutes ago and clips at Yahoo sports are working.

    Seems Adobe must have felt heat from the complaining. This still doesn't let the phone manufactures off the hook tho.

    I still don't think it was on Adobe considering the last few versions worked perfectly fine on all other devices running 4.0.4 and beyond. There was something in the Motorola ICS update that caused an incompatibility with Flash that wasn't present on devices from other manufacturers. So, while whatever Adobe did appears to have fixed the problem, the problem still appears to have been due to something on Motorola's end of things. Adobe was able to rectify it from their end, but I don't think it was their fault. If it was, then the problem would have existed on other devices running 4.0.4.

    Well I'll be. The latest update makes flash work now. It's still clunkier then Flash on my Gingerbread Bionic, but it'll do. :)

    Interestingly, Adobe Flash Player does not appear on my list of installed apps in Google Play anymore. Instead I had to go to the All apps tab, scroll down to Adobe Flash Player and then click the update. Guess they're doing this as a result of discontinuing Flash for mobile. Bad decision I think.

    Now I can truly hold off on getting a M$ Surface Tablet, well, maybe not :rolleyes: With my Lapdock 100, Flash working, and ICS on my Maxx, it's a road warrior's dream.

    I didn't remember getting an update for Flash recently so I went to My Apps in the Play app and found it gave me the option to Update, which I did. But I had checked to allow auto updates so I'm not sure why I had to go do that.

    Just an fyi in case someone is having problems and assuming their app is auto updating.

    I updated flash on my Motorola RAZR and now the videos are playing again. Thankfully someone realized you don't dump flash support until the world moves away from it. It remains a major advantage of android...
