How-to: Install Adobe Flash Player to the Galaxy Note I, II, 3, & 4


Adobe has stopped supporting flash for mobile devices since November 2011. Fortunately you can still install Adobe Flash Player onto your Samsung Galaxy Note (all versions) through a process called side-loading. Side-loading does not require rooting your device or any kind of modification.
