There are no security updates available, so it is possible that the Flash software is unsafe for your system.
Install Flash on an LG G3 tablet (Android 4.4.4)
1 Download the Adobe Flash .apk file
Adobe Flash is no longer available in Google Play Store, so we have to find the .apk file in another location. Fortunately, Adobe maintains a private archive of old versions of all Flash plugins. On this page, you can find all versions of the Adobe Flash app for LG G3. In our case, we choose the LG G3 4.0 version.
When you start the download directly on your tablet, the .apk state file will be saved directly on the device. This is convenient because you no longer need an USB cable to transfer the from the PC to your tablet.

Normally, LG G3 does not allow you to install .apk files downloaded from another place than the Google Play Store. To make this possible, navigate to Settings> Security. Here, make sure to check the box next to “Unknown sources”.

The standard Chrome browser in LG G3 4.1 Jelly Bean no longer supports Flash. Therefore, you will need to install a different browser in order to use Flash. For example, Firefox Beta is a great browser with Flash support.
Install Firefox Beta through the Google Play Store. Now, you can use Firefox to see Flash content on internet sites.
4 Install Flashify (optional)
With the above solution, you are condemned to using Firefox as a browser beta. If you would rather use Google Chrome, consider installing Flashify that allows you to continue using Chrome. When a website contains Flash content, you can open it using the “share” menu directly in Firefox.

One of the main advantages of the CyanogenMod ROMs is that new versions of the Android operating system are available much faster than through official channels. For example, it is now already possible to install an early version of the ROM with Android 4.4 KitKat on your LG G3 while Samsung itself has only just got around to Android version 4.3.
Another reason to flash CyanogenMod ROM on your LG G3 is the lack of software that you are required to get. Samsung’s own official ROMs are finally filled with all kinds of apps that you cannot delete. Even if you never used them they do take up space and you wish they weren’t there in the first place.
Of course it is not gold that glitters. Samsung itself offers lots of gadgets that you will not find with the CyanogenMod ROMs. Many of the ‘gestures features’, for example, you will lose if you step off ROMs based on Samsung’s official software. Instead, you get a lot of ‘barren’ device, but one that for that very reason is faster, and offers more free storage.
Anyway, for those who appreciate CyanogenMod ROM and want to try it, the threshold has never been so low. The required installer app you can find in the Play Store HERE, and HERE you can download. Required PC software Instructions you find in the app and in the program. A list of devices that are already supported at this time can be found HERE and here are some of the phones listed: the Samsung Galaxy S2, the Galaxy S3, Galaxy S4, the first Galaxy Note, and the LG G3.
PS: how easy flashing a custom ROM may be, as always, we remind you that we, nor Cyanogen, are responsible for what you do with your own smartphone. If you decide to root LG G3 then it’s entirely up to you the way you do it.
