I would assume you go to the place you'd normally get the Flashpoint (on the fleet/CZ-198/Rishi) and then have an option for solo in the dialogue.
This place has been an empty wasteland for a long time. No longer.

I also havent figured out where to access the solo flashpoints, those i have tried dont have any option to select solo modo, only normal or hard mode. Not sure what im missing.

I was confused as well. Went to check if Esseles had a solo mode. It does. You may just have to start there and climb the ladder of solo modes.

If it's anything like the previous solo flashpoint (Korriban, Tython, Rakata and Manaan), they are only soloable the first time. Every other time they require a group. I may be wrong and they have changed it though.

So far I have found Esseles solo mode. The NPC that gives the quest right outisde the flashpoint entrance has an option at the end of the dialogue. However I have tried with other flashpoints and there are no options in the end, and entering the flashpoint after getting the Tactical quest will obviously gets you to the Tactical one (with all mobs 65). I have got the Initial quest from Coruscant but with no avail. Maybe we have to clear once the Tactical mode? (if thats the case would be troublesome due to the long queue time)

P.S. More detail. I am currently 24 Vanguard, finished Ord Mantel and did misc stuff including Esseles solo mode. Haven't started on Coruscant yet on story. So maybe I need to finish Coruscant to get the new solo mode. Already finished the Initial quest you get in Coruscant as stated above.

After having very carefully read the patch notes for a THIRD time, and actually tried to do Taral V as a level 58 toon, I realized that the SOLO MODE flashpoints have a STORY PROGRESSION RESTRICTION. If you START the 'Shadow of Revan' Story Arc, you will no longer have access to any of the solo modes for the listed flashpoints.

Personally I think this is idiotic, They definitely realize their entire new expansion is ABOUT THE STORY. Restricting players from enjoying a previous part of the story because of some arbitrary design decision is just silly. The obvious 'answer to purists' is to make the solo mode flashpoints 'a memory sequence' for those who absolutely must have rigid continuity.

This is a game, games are meant to be fun, I think the devs would LIKE peeps to experience all of the content they went to great effort to create for their players....

Okay I was wondering about this too since I didn't do the story related Flashpoints on Illum and just moved on to Makeb, so today I went back and it kept throwing me into the Tactical lvl 65 group flashpoint.
Dropped the (purple) story mission, got it again, same thing.

Then I noticed a secondary mission, "[Tactical Flashpoint] Battle for Illum", removed that, and removed the story mission, got it again, and it turns out, talking to the NPC's for the story mission (for this mission its a bunch of generals), automatically gives you the [Tactical Flashpoint] version.

So I dropped only the Tactical Flashpoint mission, kept the story mission, talked to the droid next to the flashpoint entrance, which now had a quest triangle above his head, and lo and behold there was an option for solo flashpoint.

So that's it, if you don't get the Solo FP option, check your quest log, there might already be a Tactical FP that has been automatically granted to you, just by talking to a story/mission npc other then the droid/npc next to the FP entrance.
Drop that tactical one, but nothing else, and talk to the droid/npc next to the FP, it should now give you the option of a solo FP.
You might have to reset your flashpoints to gain entrance, but that's a minor inconvience.

TYVM! I will definitely try your method, I hope it works for me, would really like to experience the one FP I haven't yet done.
