How-to Sideload Adobe Flash Player onto the Kindle Fire, HD, & HDX

Adobe Flash Player on the Kindle Fire HDX

The Kindle Fire HDX does not natively support Flash because Adobe has stopped supporting Flash for mobile devices since 2011. Fortunately Flash was supported on Android devices at a point, so users can sideload the last supported version of Flash onto their device. Since the Silk browser also does not support Flash, users will need to sideload Dolphin Browser as well to the device to view Flash websites.
