    Default Netflix WORKS on the Optimus V!!!!

    Great news. I'm not sure if its been posted yet but Netflix works on our Optimus V! All you have to do is edit your build.prop to one of the supported phones, reboot and run the app. Works perfectly, FLASH NOT REQUIRED!

    It worked on my Nook Color, so I figured what the hell.

    I have a video of it running if anyone doesn't buy just the post.

    I believe the APK is available on XDA.
    As for the Build.prop...

    MAKE A COPY AND KEEP IT SAFE!!!!!
    Edit with root explorer
    Change the following...

    ro.product.model=VM670
    ro.product.brand=VirginMobile
    ro.product.name=aosp.thunderc
    ro.product.device=thunderc
    ro.product.board=thunderc

    to

    ro.product.model=Nexus One
    ro.product.brand=google
    ro.product.name=passion
    ro.product.device=passion
    ro.product.board=mahimahi

    a couple spaces down you'll see

    ro.product.manufacturer=LGE
    change to
    ro.product.manufacturer=HTC

    save and reboot.

    I REPEAT!!!!! KEEP THE ORIGINAL Build.Prop.

    Actually I got the APK from my Nexus One which runs Netflix legit. I just read somewhere that the APK was available on XDA.

    All this is is editing the build.prop. It isn't a hack by any means. we'll have to wait for someone with skills to get a modded version of the APK for our phones. But at least it works this way and we now know Flash isn't required.

    Heres the vid.

    Any repercussions from running the edited build prop?

    Sorry I shouldn't have assumed. Was just pointing in the right direction.

    Some apps on your phone may not run using an edited build prop. Swype is one of those apps.
    Thats why I say to copy your original Build.prop.
    I rename the original to build.prop.orig and the edited to build.prop.
    When done with Netflix I can just rename the original back to build.prop and the edited to build.prop.net and everything is back to normal.

    Yeah, it can be annoying but remember this is just a workaround until someone hooks us up with a "fixed" APK.

    Got it working but have that green bar like a crappy copy of a vhs, going to see if overclocking helps.

    Edit: Here is the green bar I am talking about.

    wow, thats weird. Don't know if overclocking will help. I checked my phone to see what I was OC'd to and I wasn't. I was at 600. Is this bar appearing on all your movies?

    Swype says it is on a phone it is not intended for, probably have to redownload the beta.

    I cannot get streaming to work. Everything else works, but once I start to stream, I get an error message saying this phone is not supported yet, got to the website for a list of supported phones.

    I tried the same movie hoping it was a glitch on Netflix's side but...



    I'm not sure why yours has the green line.

    Did you reboot after changing the Build.prop?

    also make sure there are no errors in your edits.

    Running the latest Harmonia don't know if stage fright is enabled or not. I actually think it is simply my phone dying. It had been running great since I bought it (day before official release) but about a week ago it started overheating anytime I had a phone call. It didn't matter if it was 1min or 1 hour it would heat up fast and the phone would stay laggy/frozen until a reboot.

    Will probably try other roms just to see be sure, but I think it's my specific phone. And yes it happens on all of them.

    I rebooted after editing build.prop, and after trying out the app. No go so far, I'm using the apk from xda, maybe I should try the one attached to the OP.

    In the build.prop for Harmonia everything for stagefright says false, I assume that means it is disabled. going to try different roms this weekend anyway just for fun.

    I'll probably just wait until someone also running Harmonia takes the plunge and see if they have the bar too.

    If you've already edited the build prop, try downloading directly from the market. I noticed the Netflix app was there after the edit.

    I was gunna give this a try but ran into a possible typo.

    ro.product.model=VM670
    ro.product.brand=VirginMobile
    ro.product.name=thunderc
    ro.product.device=thunderc
    ro.product.board=thunderc

    urs has name=VirginMobile as mine is brand=VirginMobile does this mean google and passion need to be swapped? Hoping u might just double check urs.
