Jailbroken iPhones can run Flash

John Moe Aug 9, 2010

You knew it was coming, right? The decision by the Library of Congress to allow jailbreaking of iPhones continues to have ramifications. Relatively easy jailbreaking software has been made available and now a program called Frash, that will let you run Flash on the iPhone. It’s apparently still kind of hinky, doesn’t run all Flash, and was kind of shoved out the door before being completely developed but will likely get better with updates. So now we have a situation where instead of being bound to an AT&T iPhone that doesn’t run Flash, you can have a jailbroken phone that does.
