How do I update Flash on my HP TouchPad and what are the alternatives?

I’m a novice, but an educated and hands-on technical type. I love my HP TouchPad, and it is still in its original state (no Preware, or anything). Call me what you will, but I have enjoyed my tablet untill lately. I now need a Flash update.

Do I try to navigate this via Open WebOS, if that is even possible? Can I go to another operating system and still have all the features I enjoy, i.e. Skype, etc… Or should I just limp along until the Surface Pro is released?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Seems a shame to let it go. Hear That HP!

    I think thats the error with the flash software.Even in PC flash do not upgrade automatically.. only after uninstalling the previous versions,you should install the new version.

    it's Adobe that controls software releases for its products on webOS. D
