If ever there was a hacker that Steve Jobs would want to pound with a mallet, it's the guy who has now made Flash available on the iPhone's Web browser.
Jobs, along with the entire Apple team of course, was blatantly opposed to the idea of working with Adobe to bring the latest mobile version of Flash to the iPhone platform. Instead, Apple has relied on a new Flash alternative known as HTML5. Web developers are quickly shifting over to the new format.

However, for those iPhone owners who just can't stand the fact that their favorite Flash content (like the hacker's apparent favorite Web series, Homestar Runner), a brilliant man has somehow managed to get the software package for Flash to run on his iPhone 4, and he claims that it would likely also work on an iPhone 3GS or iPad.

Right now, the hacked version of Flash on the iPhone - or "Frash" as the hacker calls it - is at version 0.02, so it's basically just a shell within a shell within a shell. So it can't run sophisticated Flash videos yet, like those on the full YouTube site, but it can run simple Flash animations.
