    Please excuse me if this was covered already, but I didn't find anything that did. I know MobileCinema is out, but if jailbroken iDevices can run 3rd party apps not approved in the appstore, then why can't/isn't anyone making a flash player that can run flash games on the iPhone/iPod touch? If this was covered, then please redirect me to that thread. Thanks!

    P.S. I'm not asking if a flash player exists for the iPhone (it obviously doesn't), I'm just asking why nobody can make one that's like adobe flash player for jailbroken iDevices.

    Because it's proprietary, closed source. Only adobe can make a flash player for the iphone. They are making an application to port flash games to the iphone though. Since apple doesn't want a flash player.
