1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

Will it be possible to port Flash Lite 4 into a rom for Droid?

    Flash Lite 4 is shipping with Incredible and EVO:

    Flash 10.1 is not shipping until later in the year now, so Flash Lite 4 is best option for Flash. I have Flash Lite 3.1 on my Archos 5 (3430 chipset like Droid) and it plays a lot of content and games well at 600mhz- but only plays up to Flash 8 content.

    Flash Lite 4 is more opitimzed and plays content at least to Flash 9 (apparently some 10 as well). The Droid with OC should perform at least as good as my N900, that has Flash 9.4, full version. N900 has same chipset and is OC'd at 800mhz. Flash Lite 4 is apparently more optimized than Flash 9.4 on the N900.

    If you can get your hands on it mabey. But if you pull it from an HTC Rom it won't work needs the HTC framework

    Precisely why I wonder if it will be possible, since besides the embedded framework issue, also different drivers for 3430. Flash Lite 4 is not a generic add-on like 3.1 was.

    I thought it was soon too, but Adobe announced "sometime" in the second half of the year. Adobe posts on their forum suggests late summer at best. May tie in with the next BIG Android update, after 2.1. Roadmap for the next update is later in the year.

    Flash 4 lite shows on Adobe's site as Flash 10.1 compatible, so 4 is the Lite version of 10.1. Most video and game content will work. Would have been nice bridge for waiting for 10.1.

    Lets hope it doesn't tie in with that update, well for the non-rooted folks at least. ;)

    If you haven't already done so, you can go here to sign up for the Adobe Flash Beta for Android: Adobe Labs - Adobe Flash Player 10.1

    USMC? I was an 0331 ;) BTW, just signed up for the Android beta, but not sure how they will do this, since part of browser and built into framework of OS. The beta for Windows works great on my M11X.

    I guess common sense that Adobe would have api access and approved scripts to add Flash to the OS.... duh.
