V6, IIRC, on the 770; V7 on the 800.

Check the 770/800 specs on the Nokia consumer site :-)
(There may be ways of doing it on the device but I've not needed to, personally)

You wait for a OS image to be released that includes an upgraded
version!  The are free flash implementations "out there" that might be
user-installable (their names escape me at present) but I've not
noticed any posts here or on -devel that make me think anyone's
managed to shoehorn them onto the 770/800.

Sorry it's not better news but, FWIW, I've found the 770's strength to
be vanilla web browsing with flash /disabled/ ...

All the best,
