Adobe Flash Player is no longer being officially supported for Android devices using Jelly Bean OS. While it may not irk many Android users but some really want to have it to access the websites or videos requiring Flash Player without having any other troubles. Since Adobe is still available for Ice Cream Sandwich, it can also be installed on Jelly Bean but not using the official Google Play way. We would be installing Flash Player on Note 8.0 by simply installing the apk file manually.

How to install Flash Player on Galaxy Note 8.0:

Required files: download the apk of the Adobe Flash Player 11.1.115.54 (or the latest version) from Adobe Download page. Copy the file on the SD Card of your Android device.

  • Enable app side-loading by following this path: Settings > Security > and check the Unknown Sources box under Device Administration - this will allow you to install an apk file outside of Google Play.
  • Use any file manager to access the installer and run the .apk file.
  • Start the web browser and go in to settings. Check the option of Flash Player or keep it on demand or always.

That’s done! Your Android device can now run the Flash supported videos and pages.

Note: since Adobe Flash Player is not officially supported, the speed of loading the Flash supported pages or websites might not be too promising. This post is written after a test on Note 8.0 GT-N5110, please check Adobe Download page for apk files for latest flash player versions.
