However, there’s always a good that prevails over corporate evil and now it seems iPad users will be able to use Adobe’s Flash to watch Flash videos on the web.
The jailbreak app, nicknamed Frash, will let users watch Flash web videos on their iPads when installed. This will come as a blow to Steve Jobs, which notably dismissed Flash as a dying format using the excuse that it was too much of a battery drain for the Apple tablet. However, it will only work on a jailbroken iPad which the majority of buyers probably won’t be fussed about.
“Frash can currently run most Flash programs natively in the MobileSafari browser,” said Comex, which also created the Spirit untethered jailbreak tool for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, in the description for the YouTube video created to show the hack in action.
