[ NNSquad ] Accessing Flash-enabled sites from Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean)

Accessing Flash-enabled sites from Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean)

As you may know, Adobe dropped support for Flash from Android Jelly
Bean (4.1) and upward.  In fact, JB users can apparently no longer
download the Flash player from Google Play.  And on August 15, Adobe
claims they will even block new downloads/updates of Flash from Google
Play for any Android devices that don't already have it installed.

This creates something of a dilemma for Android users of associated devices
who depend on sites that (for better or worse) use Flash for video or
other purposes.

This link details a download and procedure I've tested that can be
used to enable Flash on at least some affected Android devices:
