This is a temporary fix until Poco solves the Widevine issue for watching Netflix in HD and UltraHD.

Hi everyone, I have found a modded version of Netflix which allows HD and Ultra HD streaming on devices with WideVine L3 support.
I have extensively tested this app, it actually streams in 720p and above on Poco F1.

Instructions for 1st run:
Skip update and sign in, it may lag just close the app and reopen it and it will work after that flawlessly.

The link for HD only is: http://www.mediafire.com/file/i08g9u...donly.apk/file

And The link for Ultra HD is:

I spied the XDA thread on this issue. Great to have easy access to the APK.
The point stands though that it's harder than you might think to distinguish between Netflix at ultra HD and 540p on a phone, with the former using a lot more data.
Good to have the option though 👍

Even I prefer watching in sd but the inability to play in HD was bugging me like many other users.

I believe many users might have not noticed that, just like me so a dedicated thread is needed for this topic instead of a link embed in a unlock and root guide thread.

Done, thanks for reminding me. I never had the intention of shadowing the original thread as I mentioned I found it and not made it.

Doesn't work. Just tried with test patterns. Max it can go is upto 480p. Ultra HD won't even start the stream.

I tested the HD one, maybe you could try that one. Ultra HD may not work as the screen itself is full hd and not 4k.
Try a different show too.

It just shows HD logo beside the title but it actually doesn't work. If anything doesn't work on least copyrighted test patterns - it won't work on anything in Netflux. I also tried this on my unofficial Android box which has Widevine L1 but also fails and caps the video at 480p. The mod is just to enable the l9go besides the title
