Jailbroken iPads have a chance at the “full web” with Frash

Despite Apple’s insistence at keeping Flash and other runtime off the iOS platform, Adobe and other parties have kept at trying to bring Flash content to devices running iOS. Adobe’s effort to legally bring Flash content to iOS using a compiler which could convert Flash content to iOS applications met with disaster when Apple outlawed such ventures.

So now we have a new way of installing the Flash Plugin on the iPhone. Although, doing what you want with your device – in this case installing Flash – is illegal, since it involves jailbreaking the device and installing a hacked version of Flash Player. Sad, but true.

If you still want to experience the freedom of running what you want on your device, go ahead to this post on Engadget, which explains the steps required to get this up and running. Keep in mind though that Flash video will not work as of now.
