Has anybody got this flash to work? I'm on CWM and it fails. Likewise my ROM toolbox won't let me move the file. Then again I'm running beanstalk

DONATE TO ME
Full disclosure, but I'm intoxicated at the moment. Anyway, I greatly appreciate this. I haven't had Netflix working in quite awhile. I tried other method but was still having problems. Perhaps I wasn't getting the permissions right. I tried flashing version 2. It kept failing. I just now tried version 1 after you mentioned version 2 wasn't working right. I still had issues at first. I was just about to give up hope, and assume that my device hated me, but I messed around with the permissions once more, and... Eureka. It works great. So, really, thanks.

Didn't work for me. I used pimp my rom and faster media streaming under network and internet which improved things significantly. A little stutter at first then fine. Couldn't use it at all before this.

This zip only fixes graphical distortions during playback, it has no effect on any other factors. I'm glad it was of help to you

This just makes my netflix app crash at launch. Any way to uninstall the zip again?
EDIT: Just went to system/etc/init.d with root explorer and changed permissions to the same as the other files in that folder. Still crashes at launch.
I can get it to work using an older version of netflix and no patch. V 3.0.1 build 1016
