Flash mobile redirect doesnt work after ios 5 updates

The redirect coding that I have been using no longer works in default safari, I cant seem to find a lot of information on it either. I have attached the coding below.
It also still works in my atomic web browser, with identify as a ipad mobile browser selected. Maybe there is a better code to use with the new safari.

Randy



<script type="text/javascript"> 
	if ((navigator.userAgent.indexOf('iPhone') != -1) || (navigator.userAgent.indexOf('iPod') != -1) || (navigator.userAgent.indexOf('iPad') != -1)) {
		document.location = "http://www.google.com/mobile.htm";
	}
</script>

Probably you will use some script for dynamically detecting flash version and plug-in some this like what I have bellow (my version of SWFObject.js). In this case modify and if version is incorrect or plug-in doesn't exist redirect to HTML version. The differences between Mobile devices and web browser you cannot update or install a Flash Player if version is incorrect, so don’t reproduce problem testing this scenario.

// -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
// Globals 
// Major version of Flash required
var requiredMajorVersion = 10;
// Minor version of Flash required
var requiredMinorVersion = 0;
// Minor version of Flash required
var requiredRevision = 0;

var isIE  = (navigator.appVersion.indexOf("MSIE") != -1) ? true : false;
var isWin = (navigator.appVersion.toLowerCase().indexOf("win") != -1) ? true : false;
var isOpera = (navigator.userAgent.indexOf("Opera") != -1) ? true : false;

function GetSwfVer(){
	// NS/Opera version >= 3 check for Flash plugin in plugin array
	var flashVer = -1;
	
	if (navigator.plugins != null && navigator.plugins.length > 0) {
		if (navigator.plugins["Shockwave Flash 2.0"] || navigator.plugins["Shockwave Flash"]) {
			var swVer2 = navigator.plugins["Shockwave Flash 2.0"] ? " 2.0" : "";
			var flashDescription = navigator.plugins["Shockwave Flash" + swVer2].description;			
			var descArray = flashDescription.split(" ");
			var tempArrayMajor = descArray[2].split(".");
			var versionMajor = tempArrayMajor[0];
			var versionMinor = tempArrayMajor[1];
			if ( descArray[3] != "" ) {
				tempArrayMinor = descArray[3].split("r");
			} else {
				tempArrayMinor = descArray[4].split("r");
			}
			var versionRevision = tempArrayMinor[1] > 0 ? tempArrayMinor[1] : 0;
			var flashVer = versionMajor + "." + versionMinor + "." + versionRevision;
		}
	}
	// MSN/WebTV 2.6 supports Flash 4
	else if (navigator.userAgent.toLowerCase().indexOf("webtv/2.6") != -1) flashVer = 4;
	// WebTV 2.5 supports Flash 3

Here is what I have used, works pretty well. Has a main and then fallback option to detect the exact devices you are looking for, and more devices can be added as you see fit.

<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
var HandsetDetection = {
	ismobile : false,
	istablet : false,
	isconsole : false,
	urls : ["www.domain.com","www.domain.com/mobile"],
	
	redirect: function() {
		// Smart Redirection - if referrer domain is in url list then do nothing - its internal.
		if ("0" == "1") {
			var refurl = "";
			if (document.referrer) {
				refurl = document.referrer.toString();
			} else if (window.opener && !window.opener.closed && window.opener.location) {
				try {
					refurl = window.opener.location.toString();
				} catch (err) {
					refurl = "";
				}
			}
			if (refurl.length > 0) {
				refurl = refurl.toLowerCase().replace(/http:\/\//i, "").split("/", 1);
				for(var i in this.urls) {
					if (this.urls[i].toLowerCase().indexOf(refurl) > -1) {
						// Found match - quit.
						return 1;
					}
				}
			}
		}
		
		// Redirection rules.
// Mobile Site
if (   (this.ismobile == true ) || (this.istablet == true ) ) { window.location = "http://www.domain.com/mobile"; return 1; }
		
	}
