How I got Flash working on Kindle Fire HD 8.9″?

with 11 comments

The Amazon Customer Experience was not very eloquent about flash being not supported anymore and wasted my time.

I ended up on some good Amazon customer forums entries that helped me, here is the best forum entry I found.

Here are the steps to get Flash working on your Kindle Fire HD 8.9″:

  1. Download ES File Explorer from Amazon App Store.
  2. Download Dolphin HD apk from your Silk Browser.
  3. Download Adobe Flash Plugin from your Silk Browser
  4. Open ES File Explorer app and go to Download folder.
  5. Open the Dolphin HD apk file. You will get a prompt to about Application Install Blocked.
  6. Press the Settings button and Allow Installation of Application from unknown sources.
  7. Now hit the back button (or go back to ES File Explorer and click on Dolphin HD apk again).
  8. Next click on Adobe Flash plugin also and open it using Dolphin HD browser and finish installing Flash.
  9. Open Dolphin HD browser app and open your favorite flash website.

Kindle Fire HD 8.9″ Experience

Good:

Great affordable price.

Amazon Free Time feature for have a sandbox account for children with set allowed apps, books and daily time limits. This is a main reason to get Kindle Fire HD for me (I have iphone and ipad and can act as an Apple fanboy at times).

Integration of all the Amazon Services in one device. Audible, Books, Apps etc.

Amazon App Store let’s you know if this app is works for your Android device. A major improvement on what I have seen for other Android Tablets

 

Bad:

The power and volume buttons are very hard to press. They are pretty much flushed with the body and hard to find at times without looking hard for them.

Customer Service is not educated properly on all the features, specially Immersive Reading Experience. If you have an issue with that please contact Audible Support.

Flash does not work and is not supported anymore but not their fault as Adobe has stopped supporting it. I finally found a way to get Flash working on Kindle Fire HD 8.9″

Immersive Reading Experience can very frustrating as I downloaded both the Book and Narration and still did not work for me for some books. Even working with customer support for hours did not resolve it.
