Would You Like to Use Hulu on Your Xoom? Here is Hope!

Quite possibly one of the least understood deficiencies in the world of Android is the inherited lack of flash support in many browsers, which is required to enjoy the likes of Youtube and Hulu (at least in the US). It looks, however, that the latest installment of the Flash Player update for Android (Flash 10.3) has a hidden gem inside and thanks to XDA member bigrushdog, it has been modded to allow Xoom owners to view the infamous Hulu in their devices. The file comes in as an apk, so the installation of this is quite simple. The only thing you need to be aware of is the fact that the device must identify itself as a Desktop or else the browser will not be verified for use with the service.

The dev also goes on to mention that this seems to be done for Honeycomb 3.1, which enables Tegra hardware acceleration. Also, there have been various reports that this also works on the ASUS Transformer. So, if you are up to spending a few minutes to take this for a spin, give it a go and leave some feedback if it worked for you.

Alrighty Xoomers! Here ya go. Just a quickie. Uninstall Flash. Install the BRDizzled version for Flash 10.3 Huluness!

NOTE: You must change your browser “UA String” to “desktop” to watch Hulu.

You can find more information in the mod thread.
