This patch will replace effectively the entire media library stack with a newer version, allowing Netflix to function on Gingerbread ROMs. The patch does not contain the Netflix apk itself, just the libs to fix playback. As far as I know, the patch WILL NOT work on Froyo.

Several folks on IRC confirmed the patch works. However, I recommend a Nandroid backup before applying the patch. Worst case, you can re-install your ROM to revert the changes. No wipes or anything are needed.

Running BAMF 2.0 Beta 4.01, Modded Beta 7 kernel, and flashed this zip file in recovery and installed a netflix apk i got. Works flawlessly. Tested it over 3g and wifi (4g was being wonky at the time) and works perfectly. The Other Guys looks awesome, cant wait to watch it. I resigned up for netflix just for this!

HUGE thanks to RMK for this, amazing work.
