If you have got iPhone 4, you will be well aware that this idevice from Apple does not support the flash based content. Unlike the symbian and android phones, there is no flash player available for iPhone, iPod and iPad.
But you don’t need to worry now. Comex, who earlier developed JailbreakMe tool to jailbreak iPhone, iPad and iPod on latest firmwares, gave us another gift which plays flash content on all idevices (iPhone, iPod, iPad) and the name of this gift is “Frash”.
Here is a simple guide to enable the flash on your iPhone 4:
Step 1: First of all jailbreak your iPhone/iPod/iPad with JailbreakMe 2.0 (star). Skip to step 2 if you have already jailbroken your device.
Step 2: Install OpenSSH on your phone. Here are complete instructions to install OpenSSH from Cydia to your iPhone.
Step 3: If you are windows user, use WinSCP (here are details to learn how to use WinSCP on windows) and if you are Mac user, install Cyberduck.
Step 4: Use the following settings to login to your phone.
- Server: The IP address of your iPhone/iPad/iPod touch. Settings –> WiFi –> <Your Network Name>
- Username: root
- Password: alpine
- Protocol: SFTP (SSH File Transfer Protocol)
- Hostname: The IP address of your iPhone/iPad/iPod touch. Setting –> WiFi –> <Your Network Name>
- User name: root
- Password: alpine
- Protocol: SCP
Step 5: Download Frash-0.02.deb (the source link is at the end of this post).
Step 6: Go to /var/root/Media directory and create and folder named “Cydia”. Inside this Cydia folder, make another folder named “AutoInstall”.
Step 7: Copy the Frash-0.02.deb to this “AutoInstall” folder and restart your phone.
Step 8: Visit any flashed based site and click on “Flash” text to play the flash content.
Download Frash 0.02.deb from this source link.
