Want Netflix on Your Unsupported Android Device? Look Here!

Dying to get Netflix on your Android device, but discouraged that the list of supported devices is small enough to be counted on just one hand? Fear not because, as always, there is a solution available on the XDA forums. This time, we have forum member ften to thank for his propitious work in removing the device check on the streaming giant’s Android application. We’ve always been fans of doing things the easy way here, and this is certainly simpler than modifying your build.prop.

Currently, this modified application has the highest success rate with Android 2.3 or newer. For those stuck on older version of Android, there is an alternative modified version, which may take you to mobile streaming bliss.

Want to get in on some Netflix action on your unsupported device? If so, make sure to make your way over to the original thread. leave some feedback to let others know if it works on your configuration while you’re over there as well!

[Thanks skyjedi for creating the thread.]

On a computer platform, the process can be a life-saver for a variety of reasons, particularly software compatibility/integration. It’s not rare to see computer programmers with Linux partitions or Mac gamers that use bootcamp for their videogames.
