Flash Available for JailBroken iPad

by on July 8th, 2010

If you have a jailbroken iPad you can now run Flash. The brilliant “Comex” has been able to re-engineer the Flash from the Android OS to the iOS. The Flash for the iPad is called Frash and if you have a little patience and a jailbroken iPad you can install it. Rumors have it that the developers of Frash are currently working on making it work for the iPhone 3GS and iOS 4.

Here is how to get your Frash working on the iPad:

1. Download “Frash.deb”.
2. Decide how you’re going to get files onto your iPad. For Mac users just install Netatalk, which will automatically pop up your iPad in the Finder’s Sharing list. Windows users can try out this guide at iClarified to get OpenSSH installed and running and use WinSCP — it’s just as easy. Either way, the login is “root” and the password is “alpine.” 
3. Once you’ve got access to the iPad’s filesystem, navigate to /var/root/Media.
4. Once there, open Media and create a folder called “Cydia.”
5. Open the new Cydia folder and create another new folder called “AutoInstall”
6. Upload Frash to your new folder.
7. Restart your iPad a couple of times.

Try it out by navigating to a web page in Safari with non-video Flash content and hit the “F” logo to play it. There is no Flash video for now (it’s only a matter of time), but games and other simple content works.

    VERY interesting!
    Any info if Comex will release some kind of auto install package? Spirit was so easy to use…

    Not that I'm aware of yet. Maybe somene else knows?

    Now, if only there was some guidance on how to jailbreak with iTunes 9.2… :(

  • stonee

    Yeah, it's no business to customers of apple when the want to compete with adobe with html5. So far, adobe it's the first choice to you and me.

    I jailbroke my iPad on iTunes 9.2 without issues using spirit. Simple click and done

  • Ron

    Have you had trouble synching? Reports I've read say that synching causes iTunes to crash.

    I been running 9.2 for nearly 2 months as I got It early as a beta
    user. Been able to sync, restore, backup, you name it without a single
    flaw.

    Everything is running 100% on both my jailbroken iPad and ios4 3GS

    Cool! I'm going for it then… I wonder why the Spirit download page says not to use it with iTunes 9.2?

    I really don't know. Worked for me lol. I never read such warnings
    either. Your the first I heard it from. I'm more of a “go, and see
    what happens” kinda guy. Lol
