    So I just downloaded the FRG22D update onto my Moto Droid and I was expecting to see the official flash player on the market place. For some odd reason it is not there. Can somebody please help me out? Thanks in advance.

    I just went into my phone settings and my build number is "FRG01B." Could this be the reason?

    Yep - sounds like that wasn't the FRG22D update you applied. What was the original filename?

    That's the right file. Which step-by-step did you follow? Are you getting an error message at any point. I don't have much to go on yet.

    Perhaps he has the .zip.zip file name problem.

    This was the problem. Thank you. They should specify that you should just rename the file "update" instead of "update.zip," for the computer adds "zip" onto it itself. They got to realize some people don't know a lot about computers and files. Anyway, my phone is updated and I now have the official Flash 10.1. Works great! dancedroiddancedroiddancedroid

    The problem with that is that not everyone's computer add the extra .zip. So, you'd have a bunch more people with errors running a file called "Update". I've used different computers to rename and transfer, so I've gotten into the habit of checking before running anything.

    Agreed it all depends on whether or not you have your computer set to show file extensions or not, and most people dont

    In my guides I always try to say this:
    I don't think most other guide-writers are as accommodating of non-technical users who don't understand how their computer handles files.

    Another solution would be just to avoid the issue by having people copy files to their phone using ADB instead. Then there is no "renaming".

    Sure, then there's the extra step of having to install ADB - but that's probably less frustrating that failing repeatedly with no idea what you're doing wrong.

    Either way people will find a way to mess up. not poking fun at anyone, but we all make stupid mistakes no matter how smart we are, things get overlooked with all the excitment about upgrading your android device!:)

    100% true. Anybody that designs things for a living (be it software, hardware or otherwise) has probably said this at one point or another:

    Sometimes I am that idiot - we all get a turn to wear the ID-ten-T hat eventually.
