Run Adobe Flash On Your iPad Using Frash

If you were missing Adobe Flash content on your iPad then we’ve some great news for you.
Frash, the hack that was going to allow Flash content to run on Apple’s iDevices is now available for iPad.
Here are the installation instructions courtesy folks at Engadget:

1. Make sure your iPad is jailbroken. It's pretty easy -- just run Spirit and you're done.
2. You can use Spirit to jailbreak your iPad. You can follow our step-by-step guide, which is also applicable for iPad.
3. Download Frash.deb and keep it nearby. Update: It also looks like Frash isn't ready for prime time, you can get more details at the end of the post.

4. Decide how you’re going to get files onto your iPad. For Mac users, it’s dead simple — just install Netatalk, which will automatically pop up your iPad in the Finder’s Sharing list. Windows users can try out this guide at iClarified to get OpenSSH installed and running and use WinSCP — it’s just as easy. Either way, the login is “root” and the password is “alpine.” Remember, you can seriously screw things up while you’re in there, so be careful!
5. Once you’ve got access to the iPad’s filesystem, navigate to /var/root/Media.
6. Once there, open Media and create a folder called “Cydia.”
7. Open the new Cydia folder and create another new folder called “AutoInstall”
8. Upload Frash to your new folder.
9. Restart your iPad a couple times.
10. You’re set! Now just navigate to a page in Safari with non-video Flash content and hit the F logo to play it.

Frash currently only runs on the iPad that runs on iPhone OS 3.2, but Comex had mentioned that support for other devices like iPhone, iPod Touch as well as support for iOS 4 is planned.
