How to JailBreak IPad Flash Player using Frash and Cydia? We all know the popularity of Apple for Adobe Flash. Let’s not mince words to say that Adobe is outraged at not seeing Flash player running on the iPhone or iPad. Steve Jobs had even confirmed not to support it on iPad, and wanted to wait for HTML5 and CSS3 as it is considered the future of animated web. Steve Jobs said in the Wall Street Journal: “Flash videos on the iPad would reduce the autonomy of 10 hours of standard battery only 1:30!”
And even if HTML5 starts to arrive at the experimental sites, Adobe continues to certify that the flash will still be around for many years before we can consider this new format of the web as real competitor. One thing is certain; it would be great news for everyone. Sorry? Except for the AppStore did you say?
The AppStore is a goose that lays golden eggs for mobile software, if similar applications could be used in flash technology without having to jailbreak or not the AppStore, how would they milk the human cows? No, they want control. Reasons why Adobe Flash is not supported on iDevice (iPad, iPhone, iPod)?
Contrary to what is claimed to Adobe – Apple wanted to protect its App Store – Steve Jobs said his rejection of Flash products based more on technological issues, “Adobe says we have a closed system that is open to them, but in fact, the opposite is true.” Here is why:
Reason 1: Open?
Steve Jobs said that Adobe products are 100% owners, which means they are only available through the company and it alone decides the price, their improvements, etc. The Flash product availability does not guarantee the opening Adobe: “According to almost all definitions, Adobe is a closed system.”
Reason 2: The rich web
Adobe stated that Apple’s mobile devices could not access the Web rich (full web) because 75% of videos are in Flash. To that Apple responded that these videos are also available in H.264 supported by iPhone, iPod and iPad.
Also, YouTube videos (representing 40% of video on the Web) and several other sites like Vimeo, Netflix, ABC, CNN, ESPN, etc. can be viewed on Apple products. While Flash games are not compatible with the iPhone or iPod Touch, the App Store has over 50,000 titles, some of which are free.
Reason 3: Reliability, safety and performance
Recently, Symantec said that Flash had obtained one of the worst safety rating in 2009. For several years, said Steve Jobs, Flash is the main reason Macs crash, and despite the concerted efforts of Adobe and Apple to address this problem. The integration of Flash into the iPhone and the iPad therefore cause reliability problems, especially since it would perform poorly on mobile.
Reason 4: The life of the batteries
On a mobile, the decoding of a video is being made by electronic equipment rather than going through the software portion, which drains less battery power. Most embedded chips in mobile phones contain the H.264 decoder that supports Flash for some time.
However, much of the Flash sites require an older version of the decoder as embedded in the mobile. This means that mobile will use the software part for review and that the battery will drain faster (10 hours of video playback on an iPhone H.264 and 5 hours if they are decoded via software).
Reason 5: Multi-touch
Flash is to be flown on the PC using a mouse and not multi-touch touch screens. Flash websites would need to be rewritten to support multitouch, said Jobs.
Reason 6: And the most important
Adobe wants Flash to adopt its developers design their applications for mobile devices from Apple. Steve Jobs said that from experience; let them add a third player (Adobe) between the platform and developers results in production of lower quality applications.
Moreover, the latter will benefit from improvements to the Apple platform if Adobe refreshing his toolbox to adapt.
These six reasons given by Steve Jobs explained why Flash is unlikely to return to Apple products. Flash date of the PC era and the “era of mobile terminals is an energy efficient, tactile interfaces and open Web standards. Flash technology is not up in these areas. ”
Another unofficial reason: A problem for Apple
