Step 2: Install OpenSSH via Cydia. (follow our guide here).

Step 3: Launch SFTP browser (I’m using Transmit for Mac). Enter the following information to login to your iPhone:

  • Server: The IP address of your iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad. Settings > WiFi
  • Username: root
  • Password: alpine
  • Port: 22
  • Protocol: SFTP (SSH File Transfer Protocol)

Step 4: Download (Frash-0.02.deb | Mirror)

Step 5: Navigate to /var/root/Media directory and create a folder named “Cydia”. Inside this “Cydia” folder, create another folder named “AutoInstall”.

Step 6: Copy the Frash-0.02.deb” file into “AutoInstall” folder.

Step 7: Reboot your iPhone.

Voila! Now browse any Flash based site and click on the “Flash” text to play the Flash content.

    It should be noted that this is version 0.2. As in, not even beta. Still real buggy. A lot of content still doesn't work. Mostly just ads working, for me.
