    Default Netflix working on stock iconia 3.1 with root

    Yeah, thanks to XDA guys (and others I am sure) I have Netflix up and running on my stock Iconia running 3.1 with root. I did not flash the .zip file, I just copied the *.so file to the location (made a backup of the original file), rebooted, and it works. No audio sync issues either.

    I use iconiaroot1.3 link above from xda. Gingerbreak didn't work for me cause I am on 3.1 not 3.0.1
    There is no trick but I think you need to have an SD card in and maybe lock it in portrait mode but I think that step wasn't necessary. Anyhow, install the .apk and click root.

    Follow the directions at this page EXACTLY!

    I've rooted this tab 4x using 2 different tools because 3.1 needs a different root method. I haven't had any issues rooting it, but I followed the directions.

    No problem! I'm just glad to be able to provide some guidance. I don't have the skills to do any modding, but at least I can help people get a jump on the learning curve.

    I have version 1.2 installed, but downloaded 1.3 while grabbing the link. I'm sure it works the same.

    Rooting took less than 2 minutes from copy to done. I had to install Busy Box manually.

    Ok, need a bit of help here. I was easily able to root my A500 following the directions here. Now, how do I get to, and move files around on the thing to get NetFlix working? I can see the libnvomx.so file using file manager HD, but moving and adding the new file is beyond me.

    Here are specific steps - Hopefully this sums it up - I take no credit for any of the work done to do this but here is what I did to get Netflix to work just fine on Iconia A500 tablet with HC 3.1:
    1. Gain root access using Iconia root (1.3 for HC 3.1 for me I suspect for you as well make sure you use the right one)
    2. Install a decent rated root file explorer like ES
    3. Download the apk from this page:
    Link
    load to your SD card and then use ES to find and then install the nextflix apk
    4. Use root access and then change setting in ES to allow read write in / and /system. Then use ES to rename libnvomx.so in /system/root to libnvomx.bak
    5. Copy the file from within the zip on the above page to your sd card and then to the /system/root folder using ES by navigating and selecting it then copy and then navigate to /system/root paste
    6. Restart device
    7. Run and enjoy Netflix

    All has gone as planned, except that I can't rename the file to .bat
    The tab is rooted, so I don't know what the problem is.

    Root, then check the settings in ES and make sure that you have write access to root (Mount /root as writable something like that check the box). When you can rename the file to .bak you know you have it right and can then copy the new file.

    Not sure root has anything to do with your issues. May I also suggest Wunder Radio as it supports xm streaming. Since xm uses flash maybe there is an issue there since it is crashing both browsers. Wunder Radio will also open up a whole world of other stations. Not a solution of course but a way to get running. I also have had great luck with Pandora.

    found the problem, in the lib directory when i changed libnvomx.so to libnvomx.bak had the issue with flash, changed it back to libnvomx.so and it xm works again.

    Does the Netflix files break anything else on the tab? I thought I had read that? I had been using PlayOn to access Netflix but I can't get it to work anymore.

    I haven't experienced any issues yet. The only thing I really haven't tried is Bluetooth so not sure there...
