Galaxy tab 2 runs on android 4.0 ice cream sandwich,which is upgradable to android 4.1.2 jellybean which doesn't support flash player according to adobe as adobe has said that they has not updated the flash player for android 4.0.x versions.Adobe stopped updating the flash player for android 4.0.x devices and last update is only available for android 2.3 gingerbread.But flash player for ice cream scream sandwich apk is available on adobe's website as archived version,which is official.Most users of galaxy tab 2 installed the flash player by running the apk file on their galaxy tab 2,but most of them say that it doesn't work with default browser and they see a blue box in place of flash due to missing flash plugin.They also say that flash doesn't work on google chrome.But there is an alternate trick to install flash on galaxy tab 2.

You can install flash player on galaxy tab 2 with default android browser and UC browser HD.We will teach you to install flash player while using default android browser,UC browser HD and mozilla firefox.

Install Flash Player On Galaxy Tab 2 P3100 With Default Android Browser
First of all download flash player apk according to the android version of your galaxy tab 2.Download the correct version of flash player.

Install Flash Player Using Mozilla Firefox For Android

  • After installing open it and goto settings>content>plugins>enabled.
  • Now goto any flash website you will be able to view flash in Mozilla firefox on galaxy tab 2 and won’t see any blue lego cube in place of plugin.



But some websites hide their flash content from mobile devices.So if you visit such a website then you might not be able to view flash.So you need to install a firefox android addon called ‘phony’.The phony addon will trick websites that you are browsing from a pc and not from galaxy tab 2 tablet or phone.Goto Mozilla addons website and install ‘phony’.After installation relaunch Mozilla firefox.The link to install this addon is given below.

    1. Hey jennifer you can play videos on facebook by using mozilla firefox for android.

      Just load facebook in desktop mode by going to Settings>More>Request Desktop Site.This will load facebook in desktop mode on your tab 2.Install the flash player plugin according to the android version of your tab 2 like ics or jellybean links are given above.

      Here is the proof.

      Other Trick.
      1.First of all don't use official facebook app as videos won't play in it.
      2.Use UC browser to login into your facebook account.But you will be redirected to facebook mobile website.

      3.To disable facebook mobile website on your tab 2 add ?m2w after the facebook link like this https://www.facebook.com/?m2w.This will load desktop version of facebook on your tab 2.Add this ?m2w string everytime if facebook loads in mobile version.

      4.If your tab 2 is running android jellybean then install the flash player for jellybean.I have provided the link above for jellybean.

      5.If facebook support this flash jellybean plugin then your videos will play on facebook.

      Note : I feel mozilla firefox is the best option so you should try it only.

      If you feel any other problem,then ask me anytime.You can join me on Google+.

      Thank You.

  3. This was the Best & Easy Option that I found to fix the issue that I had on my Samsung Galaxy Tab 2, coz i can't play my FB videos before, and a lot of places was telling me that I need to install another APP to do it because FlasPlayer was not longer with Android systems. But I did follow all this instructions from this blog step by step and.... abracadabra Its working now!!! So happy, and satisfied now for this, it work & I recommend this!!!
