Visible to my CM7 NC. Not to my Droid 1 as expected.

Installing now...

EDIT: Bah, it installs but I get a not supported error. Hmm. can still manage queue. That's something I guess.

I wonder if you can spoof the build.prop to match the Nexus s and fool the app...

Nope, it's going to need a modified framework to have an ESN. Go to the apps section of NC here, and read up on the HBO-GO thread. It's going to be very close to their solution.

Well, it may require a device with an ESN, but if it is only available to "select" devices, it has to be reading something from the build.prop to determine if it is a valid phone model; the two are different issues..

Oh I agree 100%. I was just saying that spoofing the build.prop isnt the entire solution.

Here's the official Netflix Press Release:
http://blog.netflix.com/2011/05/norm...us-x-none.html

I hope B&N works out something with Netflix so we can at least get a Stock App.

Looking at the build.prop that is already on my CM7 nook, it has a ro.build.fingerprint of that of a Nexus, so that should not be an issue...

Well, never mind - got a "device not supported" error. It may be looking at other build.prop sections, it may be failing with no IEMI framework (haven't done that mod yet), or it may be looking at the actual CPU, for something only the snapdragon has...

As I posted in another section, I'm watching netflix on my nook *right now*! All it took was a build.prop mod. As follows:

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
