“Frash” To Bring Adobe Flash to the iPad!

by on July 4th, 2010

Comex, creator of the  Spirit jailbreak and the Bannerbomb exploit for Nintendo Wii, is working on bringing Flash to the iPad. A new video has been posted showing a few Flash based websites running in MobileSafari, on the iPad. This is something a lot of users of the iPad have said is missing on Apple’s tablet. There is no release date fo this yet, but this could bring a lot more iPad users to the jailbreak community!

Basically, this is a port of Flash for Android devices. The developer is also working on bringing this to iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4.

Frash is a port of the Adobe Flash runtime for Android to the iPhone, using a compatibility layer, by comex ( http://twitter.com/comex ). Frash can currently run most Flash programs natively in the MobileSafari browser. Frash currently only runs on the iPad, but support for other devices (3GS+ only due to technical restrictions) is planned, as well as support for iOS 4.

A release is planned for when Frash is stable. Developers are welcome to join the effort athttp://github.com/comex/frash – fork it and send a pull request with your patches.

All the websites my 6 year old daughter visits, are completely built in Flash. There are tonnes for kids websites that have all kinds of fun Flash games, that I wish my daughter could play on the iPad. With this new hack, we could see Adobe Flash running on the iPad, very soon.
