Flash attached zip in recovery to gain working Netflix. Requires latest version of the Netflix app. Only tested on Honeycomb 3.1 (Prime 1.5). I can't swear this won't cause unforeseen problems....use at your own peril.

Note: The original file is renamed to .bak just in case!

Latest Netflix is 1.3 build 246
APK: http://www.multiupload.com/XTEWL8CLCZ

Technical details:

Stole libnvomx.so from a Xoom 3.1 ROM and pushed to /system/lib/ on my Transformer. Duh.

If you prefer, you can manually place the file using Root Explorer or another file manager.

Like your Netflix with some auto-rotation in the mornings? The color red make you angry? Well, Dblfstr has just the app for you!

Pop's Ipad2 just lost the last advantage it had over my Transformer, thanks! ::D

Confirmed!

Working on my rooted stock ROM Transformer running Version 17 of Clemsyn's kernel and Netflix 1.3. Waiting to see if NetflixSupremeOne.3 will work as well, as soon as it comes out: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=14960445&postcount=2011

^ I can also confirm that his codec tweaks works wonders for my HTC Glacier. Hoping it does the same for the TF.

I have been using his version on my sensation. I'm looking forward to seeing his next version. Hopefully it will have better video quality

Does anyone notice that the sync is out for the audio?

Nevertheless, working here on stock rooted 8.4.4.5

thanks!

Do I need a different app for Canada? Loads just fine, I can select movies and see my list but when I try to play anything it says I can't use it from my area. Ideas?

Sent from my Transformer TF101

I just noticed it doing it on my dell streak 7 (his same patch worked for that too!)
but in all fairness my tablet was syncing data (just factory reset it so it's downloading tons of ****) I thought it was that causing it. I will check on my TF to see if it's out of sync as well

edit: sound is synced fine on my TF.

Not meaning to sound ungrateful, but Microsoft Security Essential keeps blocking this download as a known unsafe file?

Just to clarify; the audio was not synced while using "Pure root 8.4.4.5" but is synced using Prime 1.5.

    CANADIANS REJOICE!!!
    I have found a solution. It seems Netflix wants a US IP to authorize Netflix in Canada.
    1. Get a US proxy. There are plenty of free trial ones out there.
    2. Connect to proxy and open Netflix with your account.
    3. Test a video. It should work now.
    4. Disconnect proxy and restart. It will now work without the proxy.


    Please add to OP.
    Thanks!

    So if I get this right I can rename the original libnvomx.so to .bak and copy the new one to same place. Then if I want to go back, just reverse...? Thanks.

    You are correct.
