    No. Unless you're willing to make one, everyone and their grandma's will have to sit tight until Adobe and Apple settle their differences.

    Technically speaking, a Flash player on existing devices is rather difficult to implement due to the nature of both the hardware and MobileSafari. Both the iPhone and iTouch really don't have enough RAM for the OS, this is why it frequently runs out and apps sometimes don't work after you install them. Flash requires a fairly significant amount of computing power that mobile devices across the board lack for the most part. Of course, Flash Lite is the alternative but in all honesty, does jack sh*t in comparison to the "real" Flash and isn't worth the effort.

    That's just the hardware. The software wouldn't really work well with Flash either. Right now, zooming and panning websites in MobileSafari is fairly seamless, it just "works". But Flash complicates this scenario; while many flash apps are vector, meaning that they can dynamically change size without distortion in appearance, the computations required for the vectorization are fairly intricate and can significantly ruin the smooth, seamless operation people normally expect from MobileSafari. If you were in Apple's position and they demonstrated that Flash works, but with "slight slowness", I'm pretty sure that after taking into account the majority of the iPhone user base, your answer would be a solid "NO."

    So there is a lot of work that needs to be done to see Flash on the iPhone OS. Nobody is going to port it through a hack as it is not open source, so do not count on that. Flash will most likely never see a place on current devices; maybe a next gen iPhone/Touch with a better processor and more RAM.

    I personally find the web better to use without the annoying whiz-bang of Flash anyway; really, it's only good for video, which iMobileCinema handles decently.

    Go ahead.

    It's difficult, time consuming, and it really isn't worth it. Even using the Safari DL plugin Safari can become noticeably slower, and that is just a small plugin.
