Adobe Confirms It Won’t Support Flash On Android 4.1 Jelly Bean

Months after Adobe confirmed they are ending support for Flash Player on mobile devices including Android, comes the announcement that they will not support Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Adobe has said that Android 4.1 won’t ever get support or certification for Flash, though they aren’t going as far as to say it won’t run altogether. Taking it a step further, Adobe will stop allowing installations of Flash from Google Play as of August 15th, although security updates and other vital patches will still come to existing users. Any installations of Flash after the August 15th date will require finding and installing the APK on all your own.

Adobe has said that HTML5 is their future, and now they are putting their money where their mouth is.
