How can i get flash player 10 on my 2.1 device please help

Short answer: You cant.
Longer answer: Eclair (2.1) does not support Flash. The Eris has a "Flash lite" type player installed, but it isn't good for much. IF (and that's a big if ) FroYo ever makes it to the Eris, you might be able to install flash.
Solution: You can try to root and flash a FroYo (2.2) ROM.
Disclaimer: Most FroYo ROMs have bugs, and many have problems running Flash. Adobe recommends a processor running at 800mHz, and the Eris is usually stable to around 750mHz.
PS: You could try to run SkyFire browser, it converts flash (video) and streams it to your phone as a work around.
If you want flash to play videos theres a browser called xscope that can play any video.
Xscope Doesnt play in hulu or fancast. Thats really what im looking for.
After installing the Froyo Rom on my Eris, I was able to watch any youtube video I wanted with no problems. Now, it seems I can't use the youtube app to watch videos anymore. Any ideas?
The youtube app has always sucked. Google has totally revamped its mobile version of youtube and is actually a lot better to just watch youtube through your browser.
i flashed a Froyo rom on my Eris, and the battery lasts about 2 hours MAX.....got rid of that in a hurry
After installing tazz froyo I noticed a big increase in battery life, which rom were u using?
Read this thread:
The kernel is in this post specifically:
The kernel worked wonders for me. However, I wish I'd kept it at v37. v38 is a bit buggier than it predecessor. I wonder if I used that word right. Oh well.
As far as youtube video go, I used the perflock disabler in SetCPU and now it plays the videos just fine. ...So far.

Have you checked the market to make sure you have flash player 10.1 installed?

Anytime I try to watch video feeds from my phone it's extremely choppy or simply does not work. Is there a better app then flash player?
