Hi well I'm holding my new 8.9 and its quite nice. I need to install flash and dont know where to begin. Please someone walk me through what seems to be a painful procedure. I tried to install on my samsung note with zero luck. I like the size of the kindle better so want to keep this one and I want flash. I am not the best at tech stuff but understand somewhat. Can someone out there please help me make this a relatively smooth experience. Thanks so much I look forward to your responses.

The following is from Laura Dean, another Forum Pro. The files are in a Dropbox link, which she opened.

To install Flash: (You have to have a Flash compatible browser in order to install Flash. You can't install it under Silk.)

Do the following on the Fire/Fire HD itself:

Swipe down from the top > More > Device > Allow Installation of Applications.

Install ES File Explorer: ES File Explorer

Download and install the Dolphin HD and Flash Player apk files from this link:

Once both files are downloaded to your Fire, open ES File Explorer and look in the "Downloads" folder. You should see both files there. Install Dolphin HD *first* by tapping on the icon. Then install Flash.

Thanks, Meya. Maybe we can all try to keep this bumped for the next few days.

I need to update some of my notes to include the new directions and links that Laura took the time to set up.

That's because you are looking at a very old post with outdated instructions.

Download and install the Dolphin Browser and Flash Player .apk files from these links:
