Adobe sentenced Flash to mobile death row earlier this summer, announcing their plans to pull Flash from the Google Play store on Aug. 15. On Aug. 15, they pulled the plugin, making users unable to update or install Adobe Flash on their Android device.

Android devices that already had Adobe Flash player installed will still be able to use the plugin. In a blog update yesterday, Adobe recommended uninstalling Flash Player on all devices upgraded to Android 4.1:
