    Tested: Netflix Streaming Finally Arrives on Android - Tested

    I was pretty excited to read this but then found it is not available for the Atrix yet. It looks like you need to have Gingerbread sadly

    Yeah, I even messed around with first sideloading the Netflix apk, which worked. It loaded a red screen then told me "your phone isn't supported". Then I finally rooted (now Swype doesn't work) and tried the reported trick of modifying the 'build.prop' file to make it look like it was a nexus s or another phone that WAS supported. All that did was make the app completely crash - it would load, then immediately shut down back to the app screen.

    Sad. I'm sure we could hack it eventually, but it would be nice to work. If anyone gets this to work, please post how. On the bright side, since Flash works on Android so well, we can watch movies on Amazon, plus the new Google movie rental service. I still love my phone.

    Hey Ap0c, nice to see you around; haven't in a while.

    I'm assuming these are the instructions you used? --> How to easily install the Netflix app on your Android phone (Root required) – Android and Me
