The latest update to Flash 10.2 for Android (version number 10.2.157.51) hit the Market earlier today and introduced several enhancements, most notably hardware acceleration for 720p videos (mentioned here earlier), albeit only on Honeycomb tablets.

Browser integration in Honeycomb has also been improved, and "important bug fixes and security enhancements," including a fix to the "critical" vulnerability discovered a few weeks ago, have been made across the board - not just in Honeycomb.

The only problem - both of the Honeycomb enhancements above require a yet-to-be-released system update, which could potentially bear version number 3.1, at least according to the app's initial changelog. The mention of "upcoming release of Android 3.1" was quickly changed over to just "upcoming release of Android 3," and it is not clear whether Adobe made a careless mistake with the version number (unlikely) or let the word of 3.1 out early by accident (more likely).

      The update is for all versions of Android that support Flash 10.2, but it contains some Honeycomb-specific features that will be unlocked via the next Honeycomb system update.

    I just got this Flash update on my Xoom from the market, still running Honeycomb 3.0.1. My Xoom is 100% stock and I didn't do anything special to cause the update.

    I am pretty sure when they first posted the update, it was saying that it has improvements for Android 3.1
    Did anybody else notice that?

    • http://www.AndroidPolice.com Artem Russakovskii

      Yes, they did, but quickly backtracked to just Android 3.

    Updated it on my G2 running CyanogenMod 7.0.2 and most videos played with audio only and a black screen. Reverted back using Titanium and they all played fine again. Had most problems with Vimeo stuff. YouTube seemed to still work, which probably uses the YouTube app instead of Flash anyway.
