    I accidentally clicked download flash player while in my phones browser it gave me a tar.gz file. Is this something? Cuz usually it tells me flash isn't available for my device or something like that. And my laptop is out of comission right now so I can't really do much. Any help? Or am I just dumb? Haha

    I tried it and it just brought me to the normal message "Flash Player not available for your device"

    Save that file and keep it somewhere you remember it

    If the site is up to date they are still having problems with the video freezing. It has to be tough trying to run it on multiple android platforms.

    Someone else had downloaded the flash installer, but couldnt do anything with it. IIRC they had their browsers User Agent set to desktop, instead of iPhone or Droid.
