    Exclamation Netflix on S7

    Hello,

    A new version (there are differences from the previously leaked one) of the Netflix APK has been officially released in the market for SOME phones. XDA Developers have also released a version of their own.

    I gave it a shot loading the XDA version (I can't get the Market one) on the Huawei IDEOS S7 running the Indonesian 2.2.2 ROM Rooted.

    The apk installs fine, you can log in fine, there are NO ERRORS about your "phone" not being supported (which is very common based on forum readings - my android phone gives that error).

    When you click a movie to play, the movie player opens, title of the movie and progress bar appear at the bottom and you can hear about 1 second of sound.

    All seems good, BUT then after that 1 second of sound, the player abruptly stops and goes back to the netflix menus.

    After I installed the app, a Adobe Flash 10.3 update just happened to appear, which had not shown previously, so I updated that, but still no luck. Rebooted several times, battery pull, with and without T-Mobile SIM installed. No luck.

    Any ideas? We seem REALLY close to having this work. The device even shows as registered on my netflix account.

    HELP!

    Try this worked on my gtab, but i side loaded netflix from my nexus one

    1.) Download the Root Explorer application or equivalent. (Root Explorer is a paid app, but it’s one of the best, so it may be worth it to you)

    2.) Open Root Explorer and go into the System folder

    3.) Once there, hit the Mount R/W button at the top right

    4.) Hold down on the Build.prop file and open it in the text editor

    5.) Change the following lines to look like the HTC build.prop

    Here are the changes in text format:

    ro.product.model=HTC Vision
    ro.product.brand=tmobile
    ro.product.name=vision
    ro.product.device=vision
    ro.product.board=vision

    ro.product.manufacturer=HTC

    ro.build.fingerprint=tmobile/htc_vision/vision/vision:2.2/FRF91/277427:user/release-keys

    6.) Hit menu, and Save & Exit. You should be told that the original build.prop was saved as build.prop.bak.

    7.) Reboot the phone.

    8.) Download and install the Netflix application, log in, and you should be good to go.

    This makes your tab look like a tmobile G2 to netflix

    Attempted this with no change/no success. I am pretty sure I followed these directions perfectly.

    Other ideas anyone?

    Thanks for the link.

    Unfortunately, it did not work for me. The app behaved the same way I described earlier.

    What ROM are you running? Which model of the S7?

    I am running Indonesian 2.2.2 Rooted with USA Best Buy S7 model.

    I also tried the build.prop technique with the Nexus S settings I found on the net. It did not work either.

    We are so close! Anyone have success any other way yet?
