I have no Flash.apk installed but I have no problems with opening Flash content in most apps including Dolphin (the only problem is performance). Can you install and run Kongregate Arcade? Try if you can open any game there. You shouldn't need any additional apk for Fire.

I was able to install the flash 11 apk after a reboot but it's not working.
The game now recognizes I have flash installed but it gets stuck when loading a selected game.

I also can't open this website http://www.wechoosethemoon.org/

It just tells me I need flash.

Edit:
Got the above website working by uninstalling flash 11 and restoring the previously installed flash 10.
However FB videos still tell me I need a flash update.

For PDF and other format reading (djvu, cbz, xps, fb2) I would recommend EBookDroid - it has awesome features like Auto split two-page scaneed docs into separate pages, auto and manual cropping of borders, night mode, search, and so on.

Hey guys :D I got 2 questions.
I'm thinking of buyng a fire this winter and i want to know if you found any program that lets you send messages from tablet using bt (using a connection betwen fire and android phone). I found mysms but it needs internet... My other question is : Is there an aplication that lets you connect phone and tablet (bt or wi-fi) and use phone as a remote?

Using Pats rom v3

+kindle
+chrome
Viber
Pansi SMS (3g dongle via otg)
King soft office
Notes lite


Can you send SMS? If so, how did you achieve it.
I tried Pansi SMS with 3g dongle via OTG.
It cannot send SMS but the 3g dongle is detected.
I'm using Flambe v15f.

Try mysms :D
The only problem with it is that you need internet on phone and the second device you want to send the sms from.
The good things : the nice theme (not the original) and you can send sms from pc.

I just tested and can confirm SMS via Pansi working with my 3g dongle via OTG on Flambe v15f.

Check under Settings- Wireless Networks- More- Mobile Networks- Access Point Names - I have both a provider internet and provider MMS - check settings for provider MMS are correct.

Also check Network operators- device searches- choose your operator and also there can be additional setup YMMV here as I know I see a few operators.

The coolest app I've seen is Android Lost. It can be very useful if some how your Fire is lost or stolen. It's packed with cool features.

Does it really work on our fire? The android lost when I looked at it indicates that it is for lost phones only.

Yes, it works on the Fire (as long as the Fire has an internet connection.) So if someone steals your Fire and uses the internet, you can use the AndroidLost website to access your tablet.
