They finally released Netflix for android..but its only for the g2, nexus one and s, evo, and a couple other phones. I just sold my g2 so I'm a bit jealous. Is it possible somebody can hack the apk?

Here is the apk compliments of the EVO 4g forum.

The app installs and you can log in to your Netflix account, but you cannot play videos, it tells you your device is not supported. If possible we will need to remove the device check.

I read elsewhere on this forum it has to do with netflix only wanting it on the ARM processors. we may not ever see it on a tegra2 device which is a shame because id use that alot

I wonder if this is any different than the older version i have
I know streaming doesnt work but i wonder if any other changes were made

I tried the .apk on my G2x running stock 2.2. It immediately closes unfortunately.
