We all know there are more and more web sites all too eager to lock people with Flash 9 out, even though their content does not really require Flash 10.x.

Well, Ladies and Geeks, the days of manually fiddling with your hex editor to work around or deal with terminal/root stuff is over. Fully appreciating people who experimented with this before me (kevloral et al), I give you Tweak Flash Version which allows you to painlessly change the reported flash version from a GUI (and it even makes a backup of the .so - ha !). Note - this will NOT make flash faster or sites genuinely requiring Flash 10 work. What it does is getting you around pesky Flash version checks. Enjoy.

EDIT:

The backup is at ~/MyDocs/libflashplugin.so.pr1.2

A Diablo version will follow shortly when we get the kinks sorted out on Fremantle.

You don't need to restore the original libs if you are already using kevloral's binaries, tweakflashver will handle those just fine.

Nice! Certainly more convenient for gui-people

I was in the process of writing a script (commandline) for this & I accidentally wiped the original libflashplayer.so file.

Can't believe I made such a silly error (been fiddling with linux for 17 years!!!)

Nate.

It will work with an already modded setup (obviously the backup it makes in that case will not be that of the original lib).
