    I don't really get it. I mean, I get that Apple hasn't and probably won't ever allow flash for the iPhone.

    What I don't get is why one of the devs, or someone else knowledgeable enough, hasn't ported flash over to the iPhone.

    Does nobody know how to do it? Cuz, this would 100% be the highest selling app in Cydia. Everybody would buy it.

    Thanks for the response.

    Realistically though, when (big if) do you expect most of the internet (mainly videos like vimeo, hulu, and all of youtube, cuz thats what we really want) to convert to HTML5?

    It is because flash is closed source so someone would have to get either the source code which is super unlikly or someone would have to decompile it.... it would be a shitload of work!!!!!

    What i was thinking was the PalmOS got flashed ported over if someone could get the source code and alter the source code to run on the iphone platform.... im sure its possible its just alot of work

    unfortunately this community has alot of people who just follow instructions.... we need more people who are real programmers and hackers not just people following the devs!

    are u following the dev? if not why not you do it?
    u see , that is a good theory to port over the palm os version but like u said its alot of work...as far as html5 , it'll happen soon enough as people are seeing that it doesnt use alot of resources etc etc...imagine a phone os just running on html5...easier and faster then just running flash...even so the latest mobile flash sucks...its not even the new flash its the real old flash that no one uses with a few things addeed

    That's it, you've just inspired me. I'm going to look into it & if successful, sell for $19.99 on Cydia.
