Adobe Changes Flash Requirements, DROID No Longer Supported?

According to Adobe’s website, the requirements for Flash 10.1 on mobile devices have changed and in a way that effects a big chunk of Android users, specifically those with an original Droid or Milestone.  The new requirement sets the minimum processor mark at a Cortex A8 running at 800MHz which we all know is above what a stock Droid runs at.  Uh oh.

Now before you all freak out, there is a chance that the Droid could be fine and a kernel fix or some other tweak in a software update could clock it to 800 MHz which it can easily run at.  For those not in the rooting crowd, let me just say that the phone’s stock kernel can be overclocked to 800MHz, yet Motorola has chosen to leave it underclocked at 550-600.  There is still hope.

Thoughts on the change in requirements?  Flash not performing well enough or are new versions going to be even more processor dependent?

Update:  Phonescoop actually reported this news on Thursday.

    I am running Gingerbread 2.3.7 on my original droid overclocked a 1ghz with no problems.  Even have great battery life.  So if you gotta have Flash, I would recommend using Pete Sholes Bugless Beast ROM, he is one of the few still supporting this phone!
