    Is there any way to get flash on the Surface without having to update the whitelist?

    Alternatively, are there any apps that allow you to access flash through their servers similar to Flash Cinema on Windows Phone?

    Thanks!

    to address your first question, no! No way to get flash (on non whitelisted sites) without changing the whitelist for IE.

    as far as apps that allow you to access flash through their servers, i havnt seen any (wasnt exactly looking though)

    this is not true. you can add a domain as debug domain the the registry to enable flash.

    ** Removed for being completely false **

    The real (corrected) rule is this:
    • If you use the desktop version of Internet Explorer 10 in Windows 8 (not RT), you can run all Flash content, without restriction.
    • If you use the desktop version of IE 10 on Windows RT or the Metro version of IE 10 on either platform, Flash content runs only if the domain hosting that content is listed on Microsoft's Compatibility View list

    Well, that's completely false.

    There isn't. In fact, even the 'debug' setting to test your site for Flash behaviors requires input of a single site name. There's no 'global' switch for all sites.
