How to Install Flash / Frash on the iPhone

Update: There is now a much easier way to add Frash / Flash to your iPhone.

A few weeks ago we told you about Frash, the Android port of Flash to iOS. We even showed you how to install it on your iPad but to be honest, that wasn’t a very stable port. Grant Powell recently compiled an iPhone 4 version of the patch that seems to work pretty well.

In this article, I will show you how to install Frash 0.02 on your iPhone 4. Some people report it also work on the previous iPhone models and iPod Touch. Proceed at your own risks…

Step 1: Make sure your iPhone is jailbroken. If it’s not follow these instructions to jailbreak with JailbreakMe.

Step 2: Install OpenSSH from Cydia.

Step 3: Make sure iTunes is not running and SSH into your iPhone using WinSCP or CyberDuck.

Step 4: Create a folder called “Cydia” in /var/root/Media. Create another folder called “AutoInstall” inside the Cydia folder.

Step 5: Download the Frash-0.02.deb file and put it in the AutoInstall folder.

Step 6: Restart your iPhone.

Done! You should now be able to play Flash animations on your iPhone.
