    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.

    Thanks

    Edit the build.prop. Change ro.product.model to Nexus S, and change ro.product.manufacturer to samsung. Note the small "s" in samsung. This works great on my Nook Color running CM7 from the SD card. Courtesy of XDA.

    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

    I'm using Root Explorer.

    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?

    Yeah, Root Explorer is what I used. I tried some of the free file manager apps that claimed root access, but they either couldn't load the file system or give read/write access.

    That's what I did. Not good. Now can't connect with WIFI and can't paste build.prop back in to System folder. Can't edit/save build.prop either. Running CM7. How do I go back?

    Please help.

    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"

    You have to mount /system read write. If you are rooted, ES file explorer can do it. Look under options.

    I have both Root Explorer and Mount File System checked under Root Options.

    tried both HTC and samsung. Using HTC Inspire 4G with Latest CoreDroid Gingerbread still no love. Any ideas? could it be GingerBread?

    HTC worked for me with CM7 (Gingerbread).

    The resolution seems a bit low. I wonder if it is intended for the smaller screen size of phones.
