I believe that HTC said any phone released in 2010 will be receiving Android 2.2, and seeing as how the Wildfire was released in 2010 (right?), it should be getting Android 2.2. Usually the ability to download Adobe Flash 10.1 comes with Android 2.2, however, your phone has a very small screen and a low-end processor that might not be powerful enough to support Adobe Flash 10.1. You'll just have to wait and see.

The new processor, 528MHz probably, may be enough to theoretically support it (especially thanks to the smaller amount of pixels due to the small screen), but I am fairly sure that the usage will not be on par with the higher end phones, however, it may still work half-way decent. Most Flash enabled phones are sporting 600MHz minimum clock speeds on a better CPU architecture, so don't be surprised if the performance isn't what you expected.

I know the Mototrola Cliq received it's 2.1 install yesterday so I am probably premature, but has anyone installed this for a Cliq with the new update? I am hesitant to do it as the Droid had issues and the OS on the Droid is similar to that on the Cliq. I have had enough Force Close and restart issues with my phone I was hoping someone knew if it had been successful before I gummed up the works further...

justJay said he couldn't get it working on the Motorola Droid, so it likely will not work on the CLIQ either. I believe that this method is for HTC phones in general, so you may not have any luck trying this with your CLIQ. If you do give it a try however, let us know how it works.

Don't anticipate it's a botheration with the app. Beam currently alone works on ARMv7 devices. The SF has a ARMv6 processor and cannot handle beam currently. Unless Adobe decides to accompany it for ARMv6 devices, the alone way is beam lite really.

I tried it out on my Huawei Ascend M860 and it did nothing. Any site I tried always said I needed to install flash. Plus after I installed it my phone started partially rebooting whenever I would close out of most of my apps. So I uninstalled it. It seems it won't work on my phone.

Then the software must not have worked for my handset then. I checked the mobile site and still wasn't able to watch any videos =/ luckily Android 2.2 is supposed to be very close for the Galaxy S, so it likely won't be very long.
