[FIX] HULU on CM Froyo build - not mine, I take no credit
I did not do this, I only remembered it from when I had my nexus, so I thought I would share here, because I'm sure many of you do not check the nexus forum. It works, 100%, I've tested it myself on build 7 of CM6 nightly.
All credit goes to rcxquake.
Here is the link to the original thread... HERE
Here are his instructions. I just renamed the file so it was a little shorter. my changes are colored.
This is a modified flash apk file that enables you to watch hulu on your rooted, froyo-running android device. It is my project to return to the community. Please only use this fix if you know what you are doing, as I am not responsible for anything that happens to your phone.
1.) UNINSTALL FLASH
2.) Download the .apk
3.) adb install nexusflash.apk (or your preferred method of installing the .apk)
4.) apply the ABOUT: DEBUG fix if you haven't already (both fixes are required) (Alternative option provided below)
5.) watch hulu!
The about:debug fix is that in the browser address field, type 'about:debug', without quotes, and then hit 'go'. then, in the browser settings, at the bottom of the settings list you will see 'uastring'. change it to say 'desktop', instead of 'android'
Adam B. has requested I link to his post on a .apk that automatically applies the useragent (step 4), so you don't have to. Find it here. Install his .apk just like you installed nexusflash.apk.

If you don't understand the directions, I suggest you use the SEARCH function. I will absolutely NOT answer questions that you can find the answer to on your own.
Q: I upgraded to FRF72, and the flash.apk isn't working. What is wrong?
A: You lost root. Root your phone to get this .apk working again.
Q: I am running Froyo on my droid / other non-nexus phone. Will this flash.apk work?
A: Maybe. This apk appears to work on recent froyo roms, but not older.
