I upgraded my Dell Streak 7 to Honeycomb this week. So far I am happy with the result.

The last remaining thing to get working was NETFLIX. I downloaded and installed the latest application. It shows your queues, etc, but will not play.

So I did some searching and came on this thread:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1178773

This thread is for an ASUS device, but I extracted the libnvomx.so file from the zip file and replaced the file in /system/lib/ on my device, rebooted the machine, and now I can play Netflix stuff!

A couple of notes:

1. Your device needs to be rooted.
2. Rename your old libnvomx.so file instead of copying over it, just in case!
3. Reboot the device after you have completed replacing the file.
4. I used root explorer to file operations

Thanks for sharing, hopefully Netflix will get this sorted out for non-rooted users.

Netflix 1.4.1 works with HC - with hack to change property
Thanks to the poster in this thread below

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=147

I was able to do the same - download Netflix1.4.1 (in the same post above) then use apktool to decompile the original Netflixv1.4.1 and change all entries of

ro.product.model=A500
ro.product.manufacturer=Acer

to

ro.product.model=Dell Streak 7
ro.product.manufacturer=Dell Inc.

and rebuild the apk then sign the apk with sign+

It installed and worked great. My Streak 7 HoneyComb now pretty much complete, Netflix, and Skype (with both front and back camera work).

Here's the modified package

Note: Some people still want it - I put it back to the URL above. Use at your own risk.


Enjoy, Hien.

Hien,

Thanks for the netflix apk. Good work.

Can you provide a link to the Skype apk? Only one camera works on the last update that I pulled off the Market.

Thanks for your help.

I just use the Skype from Market - nothing special. I did a factory reset after the HC update and install Skype from Market. Both front and back camera works - I can switch camera during call, my Skype version is 2.5.0.108.

No, you don't need to root. Just download the package and install away.

^^^what he posted. Nothing special to do other than making sure you delete the non-working version of Netflix.

Thanks again to the original poster for the download!!!
