How to Install Flash Player on Android 4.4.2/4.4.3/4.4.4 KitKat!

For those of you who want to enable Adobe Flash Player on your Android smartphone or tablet with latest Android 4.4.2/4.4.3/4.4.4 KitKat, here’s how to do it easily using Flash Player 11.1 APK file and Dolphin Browser.  For Android ICS or Jelly Bean, see How to Install Flash Player on Android ICS Android or Jelly Bean! instead.  For Android 5.0, 5.0.1, 5.0.2, and 5.1 Lollipop, see How to Install Flash Player on Android Lollipop! instead.

This will work on any Android smartphone/tablet devices including Galaxy S2, Galaxy S3, Galaxy S4, Galaxy S5, Galaxy Note, Galaxy Note 2, Galaxy Note 3, HTC One, LG G2, LG G3, Sony Xperia, Note 10.1, and much more.

Step 1. Download Flash Player 11.1 APK File and open with file explorer app such as ES File Explorer app.


Download Flash Player 11.1 APK File




Step 2. Install the app.


Step 3. Download and Open Dolphin Browser, which is probably the best browser that also supports Flash Player.

Go to Settings in Dolphin Browser and make sure Flash Player is set to “Always On”.


Step 4. Browse to any Flash-enabled website and you should be able to now have Flash Player working 100%.






Q: Can I use another browser?
A: Yes, you can also use several other browsers that support Flash Player.  But personally, I find Dolphin the best as it’s fast and Flash Player also works well.

Q: Can I use on any Android device?
A: Yup, you can use on any Android smartphone or tablet with Android 4.4.2, 4.4.3 KitKat

Q: If I install Flash Player on my Android, does that make it better than iPhone?
A: Yes, your Android smartphone is way better than iPhone since now you can browse Flash-enabled websites, something iPhone can’t do.

    I got it! Just download Hacked Adobe Flash player from link. Make sure u uninstall any current flash player(s) running on your device. Go to settings (security) check allow installations of apps from unknown sources. Go to play store and download Dolphin Browser and Dolphin Jetpack. After installing for to Dolphin Jetpack first and make sue it’s enabled, then open Dolphin Browser go to settings click on Flash player. Set on. ” Always on” . Now go to any flash content website and ” Boooyaaah “. Good luck . I got a Motorola Droid Maxx from Verizon w current 4.4.4 update and I’m back in the game!

    I recently upgraded my motog with kitkat 4.4.4 version.Now no video player(mx player etc..) is running on player showing”unsupported andoid version”.
    Please tell me which video player supports in kitkat 4.4.4 android version.

    • Max Lee

      Not sure on Moto G as I don’t support that phone but MX Player should work on all 4.4.4 ROMs. Try another ROM then.

    • viju

      I have downloaded max pro video player I found that is a best video player we can play and kind of file of movies. For the android 4.4.4 just download max pro version(not free apps/you have to buy from Google play store) you’ll find the best.(I have also the same android version 4.4.4

  • tavo

    I download the apk ,went to downloads but it says “cant open file ” . what am i doing wrong?

    • Max Lee

      Check the file, is it 6MB? If not, it’s a bad download, just re-download apk file.

      • peter

        interesting, on the file description page it says 4.5mb and the download size is 4.5mb and the md5 compare is the same (unless I’m doing it wrong) not sure what has changed, but i can’t open the file either. samaung siii and android 4.4.2.

  • Michael

    Is it OK to install Adobe Flash Player with Dolphin Browser already installed on my Galaxy S5 ??

    • Michael

      Or does it matter which one is installed first ???

      • Max Lee

        Nope doe not matter.

  • Brandon

    Hrmmmm….downloaded the Flash Player 11.1, went to security and checked the enable sources, tried to install it but the install button doesn’t want to work. Cancel seems fine but install doesn’t do anything?! Please help.

    If i have an older version of flash player and want to flash the newer version/update, what are the necessary steps for a safer phone. Do i need to clean install my rom then reflash the new Flash Player? or Can i just reflash over the older version?

  • Ck

    I downloaded the flash player 11.1 on samsung galaxy pro with android kitkat 4.4, but need the flash player for adobe connect which says that flash player 11.2 or more is required. When I click on any of the other links that are 11.2 or above they save as a zip folder and when I try to unzip it it doesn’t work??

  • Yuntao

    I did everything but it does not working with dolphin. Dolphin always crashes. I installed Puffin browser and it works great. (4.4.2 tablet)

    • cestlavie

      @Yuntao is right. The procedure works perfectly but only with Puffin browser.
      I tested already Firefox, Maxthon and it doesn’t work; Dolphin Browser neither.

      If anybody else has tried with other browsers it would be cool to let us all know here whether it works or not.
      Thanks every1.

      • Creice

        Same here: Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2, Android 4.4.2, installed Dolphin Browser and Jetpack with modified FlashPlayer for KitKat – keeps crashing.

  • Phil Lamborne

    Will this solution work with Chrome? I just spent an excesive amount of time getting print functionality with Chrome, Docs, Cloud Drive and Cloud Print Plus. I don’t particularly relish the thought of replacing Chrome after all that work.

    And does Puffin encrypt passwords and ID’s?

  • Phil Lamborne

    BTW: I have a Slatebook 14 with 4.4.2.


  • Anthony I

    Hey I got the tab S with Kit Kat 4.4.2 what should i download…

    You would think they have something especially for the newest android version that’s straight from adobe. Why do they make it so hard is apple winning them over or something?

  • Ms.Gwen Pearson

    I have a Trio Stealth G2 10.1 tablet ,and would greatly like to know what flash player I need to play flash supported games? Any ideas ?
