    Motorola XOOM Owners, Here is a Tegra 2 Flash 10.1 File to Try



    By now you’ve already heard news that the Motorola XOOM won’t launch with Flash 10.1 enabled and will instead see it via market download some time this spring? Well, we may have just been handed an .apk that can be tried on Thursday should you be going forward with your purchase to give you a Flash experience right away. A Flash 10.1 version for Tegra 2 devices popped up over at XDA and while it says that it’s made for Froyo, we’ll be testing it on our XOOM to see if it works. While I can’t recommend that you try this because we have no idea what the effects could be, we’re just giving it to you as an option.

    Download: Flash-10.1.120.1.apk

    And remember, you should NOT download Flash from the market once you get your XOOM because it runs on a Tegra 2 processor and is not compatible with 10.1.106.16. Adobe has added notations to the market version to remind you of this…
    It SHOULD NOT be installed on devices/tablets with the NVIDIA Tegra 2 super chip including the LG Optimus 2X, Dell Streak 7 and Motorola ATRIX. The pre-installed version of Flash Player is optimized for Tegra 2. Future updates will include these optimizations. If you are unsure as to whether your device includes the NVIDIA Tegra 2, please consult your device owner’s manual.



    UPDATE:
    In a blog post that went up just an hour ago, they announced that Flash 10.2 (instead of 10.1) will be available within a few weeks…
    Adobe will offer Flash Player 10.2 preinstalled on some tablets and as an OTA download on others within a few weeks of Android 3 (Honeycomb) devices becoming available, the first of which is expected to be the Motorola Xoom.
    While it still won’t be pre-installed, and our full web experience will be crippled for a bit, at least we have some sort of idea as to when we can expect an update. A “few weeks” may not be as specific as we’d like, but it sure sounds a lot better than “Spring 2011.”

    So how much are they discounting the price due to the fact that a major advertised feature will only work at the time of purchase, maybe, if the consumer installs unofficial software off the internet? What, no discount, you say? Why, that hardly sounds right!

    What would the worse that could happen if you tried to install the Froyo Flash?

    Any others tried this Flash and gotten it to work on their new Xoom? After thinking about what a huge amazing deal it was to get Flash working on my phone, and then thinking about how very rarely I actually ever use it, I doubt it will be much of an inconvenience to wait for a couple of weeks for 10.2 But at the same time if it looks like this there is a 10.1 solution for the Xoom, I'd probably use it.

    I tried to download it and when complete I tried to load it. But got a failure trying to parse the package, or something like that. Without flash I can't play videos in Facebook or watch game time in MLB.com. I want my flash

    Parsing errors could be a browser issue. But with no real alternative we're just going to have to wait.
