How to enable flash player in jellybean dolphin browser

Adobe has quit developing Flash Player for mobile devices and it’s last update was for Android Ice Cream Sandwich, luckily this version works for Jellybean too but dolphin browser for Android which supported Flash player plugin till ICS has quit the support for the plugin from Jellybean.

I would tell you the work around to enable flash player plugin support in jellybean dolphin browser.

Download the official flash player apk from adobe from the link below,

Though there are some developer versions of flash player available for JB, I would recommend you to download the official release for better stability.

Step 1: Install dolphin browser from Google Play to your JB android device.
Step 2: Install flash player downloaded above.
Note : make sure you have enabled unknown source install in the security section of your device.
Step 3: Connect the rooted-Android device to the computer and issue the following commands –
Note : make sure you have installed Android tools in your computer.

adb shell

cd data/data/mobi.mgeek.TunnyBrowser/shared_prefs

rm -rf mobi.mgeek.TunnyBrowser_preferences.xml

The above command will set the Flash player plugin to ‘Always On’ in the dolphin browser.

I have made the video of the steps above for your understanding
Step 4 : Test the flash player in the dolphin browser by clicking the flash player app and opening the link through dolphin browser. If  you see the flash player settings then you are good to go.
Step 5 : Disable the auto-update of dolphin browser in the Google Play, if you wish to update the browser you have to do the above steps again.
