    No. JB does not allow you to watch flash any better than it does or would if you were not JB.

    And it never will.

    iPad does not support flash.

    Are you sure? I remember I once installed "Frash" (or something like that, don't really remember the name) thourough SSH on my iPad 1.
    It allowed me to watch flash movies.

    Once upon a long ago. It was never updated, and no longer works AFAIK. It was never a stable reliable flash solution.

    I'm currently using IPad 2 JB with Frash installed as my flash plugin to browse the Internet. No problems whatsoever! Just google search for Frash 0.01 deb file for IPad 2 and you will be amazed to see that it does exist and work unfortunately it's not 100% stable!

    Enjoy!

    Not at all, I have not problem when folks point out I am wrong, if I am.
    I just wish I could ever have got anything other than a "food" error with frash. Being a fatboy, I normally enjoy food a lot, so it is doubly disappointing ;)

    Yes! Now that you mentioned it. It took me a few attempts to get things right. Had to redo the copying of the frash deb file into the Autoinstall folder quite a few times to get things working. It's about 90% stable for me [crossing my fingers]!

    Cheers!

    First of all you need to know how to gain access into your Ipad. Google search for Cyberduck (if u r using a Mac), or use WinSCP (if using a PC). Either or are programs for you to access folders and files within your Apple devices, i.e. iPads, IPhones, etc.

    Next once you gain access, go to "var" folder; then "root" folder; then "media" folder, and create a folder name called "Cydia". Go into the Cydia folder and create another folder called "AutoInstall".

    Now go online and search in google for frash 0.01.deb file and download it. It should be a really small file. Copy this frash file into the "AutoInstall" folder and once completed reboot your IPad.

    Congrats, and you should be able to use flash on 90% of websites out there. Hopefully we will get a newer version of Frash for IPad soon that'll be even more stable!

    I'm actually using this to watch flash movies online (direct streaming). Works great and if my browser does crash, I just relaunch it and every thing works again! Hey, at least we can still use it. It's better than no option at all! Hope you agree with me?

    Cheers!

    I am seeing links to some other versions, but I'm wondering if the one you've mentioned (0.1) is the most stable.

    Just f.y.i. Frash 0.0.1 is only for IPad. All the other higher version i.e. 0.2, etc are for the iPhone, I didn't want to risk putting the iPhone frash 0.2 deb file into my iPad 2. I'm content with what's working for me right now! Hope this helps!

    I couldnt get it to work at all. It installed but first I got a connection refused error when I clicked on a flash item. Then I reset and got some food error. Reset again, same. Uninstall/reinstall, same.

    So now I just left it uninstalled, oh well..
