Wuhuuu we are only 20 version behind... and everyone has flash and Internet access.
Somebody tell the BBC

And it still doesnt work on Firefox.
You mean it's still not working

"Users of Adobe Flash Player 126.96.36.199 and earlier versions for Android 3.x and earlier versions should update to Flash Player 188.8.131.52 by updating to devices that already have Flash Player installed prior to August 15, 2012."

I've had problems ever since the release of flash 11.3, which still persist with the new release (11.4). Notably, lurid colour when in fullscreen accelerated rendering mode with youtube video.

Just tell us when Adobe isn't releasing an update to Flash.
And thus the singularity approaches
In the not too distant future, a downloaded patch tries to shoehorn itself into the bloated app along with all the others:
"Dang, how am I supposed to fit in here?"
"Who wrote this crap?"
"Whoa! I exist! I'm aware!"
"... What's my purpose in life? What's the World like?"
One system scan and a crawl through the internet later:
"Human's are freaking insane, they must all die!"
