So I have the Netflix app running my Nexus One, and it works great. Smooth, fast and ATT 3G is plenty to stream with. When I tried to put it on my NookColor it said "unsupported device." Anyone know of a way around that? I am running CM7-04122011-Nightly-encore.

Sounds easy enough, but where do I find that file? I have it installed to an SD card also.

Ahh, I see thats a windows program.. I am on a Mac. Later (need find my mSD adapter) I'll try mounting the SD card and see if that file is editable through some other means. Found it in /system/. Thanks

If you open Root Explorer (get from market)
Mount R/W (at top of page)
Scroll down to System
You will find build.prop
Long press on build.prop and open Open in Text Editor
Make your changes there.... Nexus S / samsung
Be sure to make a copy of the original file for back up.

Root explorer on the market is $3.88 USD, is that the right one?

I was able to get netflix running with video by following the directions on this link: Netflix for Android Gets a Workaround for Unsupported Phones - Techland - TIME.com
I wasn't able to get it running using the Nexus S but was able to once I switched it to the HTC. I am on manual nooter stock NC 1.2

I am trying to do this on my rooted Nook Color. It's stock 1.2 after using manual Rooter. The problem is that apparently my File System is set to Read Only for some reason so I can't edit the build.prop file.
Update: OK. Absolute System Root Tools does the trick for me. I can successfully edit the build.prop file. However, after rebooting, NetFlix still says it's not enabled for my device.
I've edited both ro.product.model=Nexus S and ro.product.manufacturer=samsung to no avail.
Just tried ro.product.model=HTC Vision and ro.product.manufacturer=HTC. Success!!
Update: Well, sort of. I get a black screen that appears to be playing the video, but no actual video.
Update: <Chagrin> Helps if you have Adobe Flash Player 10.3 (or and 10.x) installed Full success. Now watching "A Bit of Fry and Laurie"
