    Default Netflix on android works - not on fascinate yet - devs?

    Who can figure out how to trick netflix into thinking, my fascinate is an incredible or nexus s? I have the app from the last leak. Still doesn't work but throws different error. We are getting closer!

    Stop chasing those sheep and get on this. After all, you're never find find that pie anyways.

    I'm sure they'll release the app soon... just wait it out.

    There's a hack posted over at XDA for this. It doesn't say anything about working for the fascinate though.

    If that is the hack that changes the build.prop file, then it does not work yet. Now for us yet anyway.

    I tried the build.prop edit that was mentioned above - apparently works on Nook and Optimus V, but did not work for me or apparently others. Gonna tinker with this for a bit longer, but not looking hopeful right now with my limited know how

    Made one more attempt at the build.prop and changed all references to sch-i500, froyo, and 2.2.1 to Nexus S, gingerbread, samsung and 2.3.1 - still no luck

    There are a few lines in the build that identify the processor - I wonder if I need to change this and if changing it would hurt anything else in my device

    If anyone on here has a nexus S or other device with working Netflix could you either up you whole build.prop or just copy the text and and past it in here? Thanks

    /system/build.prop is the location

    I'd say wait it out. We don't have to wait for Verizon or Samsung for this, just Netflix and how fast they can pop it out for us. Might as well wait for a proper release. Unless....you know, one of the devs round here/xda decide to do it really soon.

    wait it out? boo. I am not a forum lurker because I like to wait things out. It is very possible that we may not figure this out, but it is worth a shot. There is also a good chance that it will not ever come out on this device - let's hope it does, but if it doesn't I hope that the tinkerers that are smarter than me work this out. Love my Netflix and have been jealous of my son's freaking ipod touch for Netflix support for too long.

    Whether it works or not the attempt is fun.

    Tried lots of wierd edits to the build.prop to no avail - this one is above my head (which doesn't take much) - I will keep tinkering and keep looking around the interwebs and will update this thread if I find anything - anyone else have some progress on this?

    I know that there is some question as to how to do this and it is being said that it has to do with DRM controls on the chipset itself, but the android communityhas worked around this type of thing before - hopefully it happens again.

    As of right now, nothing seems to work for our phones. It's getting annoying.

    I called Netflix and was told the Fascinate would be supported on the next release.

    They didn't happen to mention when that might be, did they?

    No, he said he didn't know. I asked if it was something in the next month or next year and he said more like a month or so.

    Did you happen to ask somebody higher up, or just a low-level employee? Wonder how hard it would be to get hold of somebody in the Software Development department. Wonder if they are working with Samsung/our chip provider, or just trying to figure everything out by themselves.. If it really is a DRM issue, then that might require an update from VZW, kind of have to have root/su capabilities to fix DRM issues.

    I'm sure it was customer service. Just said Fascinate would be included in next app update.

    With both of the CM7 roms I was able to stream with audio only using the device check disabled apk. Just need those video codecs for it to work I hope. Also I did install 10.3 as well no joy. But maybe it will work sooner if netflix gets things in gear first.

    Read the lifehacker article that referenced the no device check and mod 2 versions - none of them helped me - but let's keep trying

    I was able to get the mod-2 apk to work, but when I try to stream I get the 1005 error which is common.

    It's a great queue managing app ....

    I was able to view and manage queue with the stock mnetflix apk install a month or so ago - is a nice queue manager but until we get this thing going on the fascinate for streaming I am annoyed. Looks like some devs are paying attention though so keep em crossed

    Within the next month is fine by me. Netflix has really been one of the last vestiges of things on IOS that I miss, along with Popcap coming over to the green side...well I'm quite happy being android.
