Staying true to its word, Adobe has confirmed that Flash isn't and, will never be, certified for Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. What's more, the firm will be removing Flash from the Google Play store on August 15th, providing only security updates and vital patches to existing users.
It's worth noting that Adobe didn't state Flash wouldn't work on Android 4.1, only that it's pulling support, so perhaps there will be a few rendering artefacts here and there, or less than ideal performance but it may very well work, at least for now, that is, if you are willing to spend the time obtaining the apk from adobe's archives for old versions.
In this writer's mind, this move signals the expedition of Flash's death in general. Loss of support for a platform that sells over one million devices per day is a serious hit to the list of reasons to stick with or pick-up Flash in the first place. It's perhaps a good thing then, that Android 4.1 is boasting excellent HTML5 support and performance.
Here's hoping someone launches a Flash version of the Internet Explorer 6 countdown page.
