Default Run Netflix on CM10 & 11 Xposed Framework module

You can run Netflix on CM 10 & 11 (4.2, 3&4) on EMMC through the latest CM10.2 nightly and CM11 builds.
The Kernel changes make watching Netflix in "better" download speed watchable. Only occasional bumps after the first 30 seconds. Great for a three year old tablet. I claim no credit, save some research time. I'm only pointing out the work of giants.


It works in CM11 (4.4) in most devices. PLEASE post a note with make and model as well as ROM you are using. If you try with Xposed Framework make sure and get the latest version. Also with CM11 on Nook Color (maybe others) You Must Use Liquid64's NetflixHackPersist.zip per option #2 and nightly 2-10 or later. Also must use Ver. 3.2.1-B1346 netflix or earlier, Available below, versions 3.3.1-B1463+ don't work for CM10 or CM11. I urge everyone to call Netflix at 1-866-658-3608 and complain about the new app that leaves so many behind. Also go to Twitter and Facebook and encourage others to let Netflix know their displeasure.

It is working on SD with CM11. See Post (#14) for details. (Please, If you try on SD whether it works or not please post a reply in forum and I'll update.) Runs on my Nook Color with CM10.2 or CM11 on EMMC just fine, (See post #3 for 24+ others).

The Process, if your interested:
 
I had to do a lot of searching to find this since most of it is not on the Nook Color forums. I thought I would post the accumulated info and links here to make it easier for fellow Nookie (and others tablet) owners. Did also find that other tablets and phones are having the same problem with Netflix app. The following is a listing of things I have tried and know that they work on the Nook Color. Some of this has been mentioned sporadically on Nook Color (Encore) ROM and DEV forums.
The two forums with the most helpful info:

By Entropy512 Originator of the Xposed Netflix module All Exynos4 devices (Go there and give him thanks)
Use the XposedCM10.1NetflixWorkaround.apk below for Exynos4 devices
and
by Kaepernick - Changes that made it work on HTC Droid Incredible (And Nook Color and several others) (Go there and give him thanks)
Use the XposedCM10-10.1NetflixWorkaround-Dinc.apk below for all other devices

Option #1 - From Kaepernicks OP. If running CM11 on nook color must use option #2
.
Quote:
"Well, thanks to Entropy512's help, I was able to modify his Xposed hack to work on CM10 (based on Android 4.1) and CM10.1 (based on Android 4.2) for the Incredible. Using the newest Netflix app and it's working well without issue. It's easy to install. You just need two files:

Xposed Installer: See latest
Xposed Installer file link in the link just above the attachments at the bottom of this post.

*****For Installer Forum and Updates: (Go there and give Rovo89 thanks)

XposedCM10-10.1 Netflix Hack: See attached file below (XposedCM10=10.1NextflixWorkaround-Dinc)

In order to install:

1. Download both files to the root directory of your SD Card. Install the Xposed Installer apk
2. Once Installed, open it up. Press the Install/Update button to install the Xposed Framework. Allow Superuser Permissions. Once it's done, reboot.
3. Install the Xposed Netflix Workaround apk.
For Nooks, Droids, Etc use XposedCM10-10.1NetflixWorkaround-Dinc.apk
4. Open up the Xposed Installer and select the Modules button. You should see the Xposed Netflix Workaround option. Tap the checkbox. Reboot.
5. Open up Netflix. Enjoy.

The background of the app will be white, which is weird, but video will work."

*** Make the Xposed Framework persist through a CM ROM update with script "90-xposedpersist.sh" (in the 90-xposedpersist.zip), put the ".sh" file in the /system/addon.d/ folder. See Post #4 for specifics***


Option #2 - On Entropy512's site I noted that Liquid64 was working on a zip to make the install persist and has since done it. I have tried it and it works. It's easier than #1 but you'll miss trying the other modules in Xposed.
If running CM11 on nook color must use option #2.
His response to my request to include his work is below: (You should give him thanks here)
Quote:
"Just for reference, my zip file does not rely on the xposed modules. It is just an init.d script that changes the nflx_player_type value. There's also an addon.d script that backs up the init.d script in the event there is a firmware upgrade.
I guess is anyone is interested in looking at there, here it is:

(See attached files below: NetflixHackPersist.zip & removeNetflixHack.zip)

The addon.d script can be adapted to also back up the exposed modules, as Entropy512 had suggested above. "
There are two zip files. The Hack Persist.zip is installed from recovery to make the changes persist after upgrades without using the Xposed installer. The Remove.zip uninstalls the Hack persist also installed in recovery. The background of the App will again be in black.

This does work on SD on Nook Color running CM11. See Post (#14) for details or
 
Copy NetflixHackPersist.zip to the root directory of the SD and rename it to cm-update.zip. Install the card and boot to Leapinlar's recovery to install to the card. Reboot and good to go.
I will try to keep this up to date as to any changes or problems. I found others on XDA did not know the Nook Color had the same problem. If you know of other tablets or phones using CM 10+ are having this problem let them know so they also might benefit.

Where is the NetFlix Icon?
 
I have received a couple of PMs asking where the Netflix shortcut (icon) is after installing the workarounds. These workarounds are fixes that allow the newer Netflix apps to work with the ROM. You must have the current Netflix app installed from the Google play store. The workarounds do not replace the Netflix app, nor do they install the Netflix app.
Problem with Netflix App Ver 3.1.0+?
 
If you have problems with updating to version 3.1.0, in app manager delete all data for Netflix then open Netflix and reenter user id and password. Then reboot the tablet. When you enter Netflix again everything should work fine.
All credit for the attached files goes to the authors listed above. I have also attached all needed files below including the latest updates. If you have any suggestions or questions please post below.

Personal note about Xposed Framework:
 
I encourage you to to install the latest Xposed framework (See link above attachments at the bottom of this post). I have found several of the modules available for downloading right in the Xposed app do great things. The App settings module gives an interface like Paranoid Android ROM without losing any of the CM greatness. Best of both worlds for me. See XDA article here: http://www.xda-developers.com/androi...-miui-and-x86/
For the diehards that just want a Netflix app that works and don't care if its the latest Netflix app.
 
I included the 1.8.1 version, just extract from the zip. Easier yes, more exciting no. I like a little excitement in my tablet. Also have added Version 2.0.2 which works on some devices. If running CM11 on nook color must use option #2 also.
Enjoy and spread this to everyone you know that wants to use the latest Netflix app on their devices and has been unable. (+85) If this helped you please hit the thanks button.

This works great but I like to keep up with the nightlies and you have to go into the Xposed app instruct to install and reboot with each new ROM to have it work.

On Entropy512's site I note that Liquid64 was working on a zip to make the install persist and has since done it. I have tried it and it works.

His response to my request to include his work is below, (from #69) of Entropy512's forum above: (You should give him thanks there)

Default Make your Xposed Framework Persist also.

After some continued research and testing I have found this work around for having to reinstall Xposed and do a reboot after a ROM update.

I asked Rovo89 the developer of Xposed Framework and got this answer.

Quote:
Is your ROM based on CM? Then this should work better for you:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=43112783
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=43473060
The Source info and Script are first here:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...postcount=1911 (Go there and give him thanks)

And also here.

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...postcount=2043 (Go there and give him thanks)

I put Fiouz's script in file "90-xposedpersist.sh" and put the file in /system/addon.d/ in the Nook. If your tablet has this directory it should work.

The file is attached in the OP (in the 90-xposedpersist.zip),

I tried it for a few weeks and regular nightly ROM updates and works great on Nook Color CM 10.2 & 11 in EMMC. Should work on any CM 9, 10 or 11. Great time saver for nightly update addicts.

Run Netflix app on CM10 or 11 here.

I am running CM11 on my NC and have attempted the Xposed Netflix workaround with the updated frameworks (updated apk) from this thread. I managed to get Xposed and my frameworks updated, (I also needed to update binaries using SuperSU) but now Netflix is crashing. If I unload the Netflix module, Netflix will run but I have the small playback window surrounded by visual "noise."

Has anyone else experienced this? Is there any advise you can offer?

Unfortunately, I cannot provide any advice, but I wanted to add that I get the same thing in CM 10.2 on nightly 12/31. Netflix runs, but I too have the small playback window surrounded by visual noise. So it is not unique to CM11.

In the OP under: Problem with Netflix App Ver 3.1.0+?

If you have problems with updating to version 3.1.0, in app manager delete all data for Netflix then open Netflix and reenter user id and password. Then reboot the tablet. When you enter Netflix again everything should work fine.


Something about the update from prior to 3.1.0 to 3.1.0 or later does this. I had this problem and took the above steps and every thing worked fine in 10.2. Have not yet tried it in CM 11 myself. Since clearing the netflix data cures the problem it doesn't seem to be the framework or the work around. It is the reason I put the :Problem with Netflix App Ver 3.1.0+?" info in the OP.

Edit: Finally got CM11 running. Had to use option#2 in the OP, Liquid64's NetflixHackPersist.zip available in the OP. It works fine and persists past Rom updates to boot.
Run Netflix app on CM10 or 11 here.

Just goes to show that searching is the way to go I kept getting this green screen and a movie of about 1/4 size of the window. This fixed the issue!

Thank you for posting it up and saving my sanity
