    I did this and everything plays fast. It sounds like the chipmunks. I'm on CM7 86. I tried the stock kernel and Dalingrin's latest... thoughts?

    if you have this problem, even with the modified APK, you need to modify build.prop

    Change device to HTC Vision (from NookColor)
    Change manufacturer to HTC (from bn)

    Actually, all I did was modify the build prop. I did this on an early version of CM7 and it worked fine. When I updated to 87 and then changed the build prop again, I get chipmunks.

    Well, I switched to the updated Netflix app (theofficial version that no longer does a device check) and got chipmunks on nightly 87. Edited build.prop and it now works properly.

    I just followed huskermania's YouTube video. All I had to do was change two fields in the build prop. Did you change more than that?

    No, just the two properties I described previously.

    Which application did you use to edit build.prop? Are you sure that your edits were saved? And did you reboot?

    I used es file explorer, it did save, and I did reboot. I changed ro.product.model to Nexus S and ro.product.manufacturer to samsung.

    As strange as it seems, try setting the former to Vision and the latter to HTC. There have been posts here and on other forums saying it makes a difference.

    I cant even see the netflix app in the market. And I cant edit my build.prop file because the system says its read only.

    I cant even chmod 666 with it either. Still says read only file system

    Anybody got any ideas?

    What ROM or B&N version are you running? Netflix requires Android 2.3 or higher which means rooted B&N 1.2 or a custom ROM built on 2.3 or higher.

    I'm running CM7.0.3, Android 2.3.3

    Ive been able to use ES File Explorer to move the file to my sdcard and edit it but I cannot copy it back. I also can't save it when i use the terminal and edit it with vi. I would very much like to know how I can edit my files. The command line reports that it is a read only file system and I cant seem to change privileges even as super user.

    Thanks!

    I was able to edit the file by remounting the filesystem.


    mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblk3 /system
