Default [Xposed][HACK] Workaround for Netflix on CM10.1 - All Exynos4 devices

This is an Xposed module (See http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1574401 for more on Xposed) that allows Netflix to work on CM10.1 on Exynos4 devices.

Source code is at https://github.com/Entropy512/XposedNetflixWorkaround - Use the Android Developer Tools Eclipse package to build it

To install:
Install the Xposed Installer APK from the thread linked above
Install the Xposed framework using Xposed Installer
Install the APK linked in this post
Reboot your device after enabling the module in Xposed Installer
Enjoy Netflix

A few opinions on kernel development "good practices"

Default How does this work?

For whatever reason, Netflix uses its own player, called JPlayer, if it detects that it is running on Android 4.2. For whatever reason, JPlayer does NOT like the current video subsystem in CM10.1 on Exynos4 devices.

What this module does is make Netflix always think that it is running on ICS, which will make it use what appears to be the system OMX player. (I'm not entirely sure of this, but I am sure that it is NOT JPlayer and it DOES work on all of my devices I've tested).

This is an interim workaround/hack until the root cause of JPlayer failing on Exynos4 devices can be determined. (Edit: From talking with a few people, JPlayer is replacing a number of components of Android's playback framework. This includes components that have been altered for Exynos4 compatibility.)

DO NOT REPORT THIS ISSUE IN CYANOGENMOD JIRA. No affected devices are receiving M or stable builds and this is one of the many reasons.

I'm having issues installing Xposed - after I install the apk and hit the install button, it throws the error "cannot read /data/xposed/modules.whitelist".

Could you try this installer instead? http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...3#post36436643
It's a known problem for some ROMs which fail to update /data/system/packages.list.
Tired of updating your mod for every new ROM release?
You want give users the possibility to combine different mods without creating tons of different files for all possible combinations?
Then have a look at my Xposed framework - modifications without APK changes!
