    forgive me, but what are you bringing to the table other than "follow my channel"? I have no real insight, but I also ask for nothing in return

    To answer your first question... I make the videos mostly because I enjoy it. Helping others with tech makes me happy. I am not a dev, but have an understanding of how to do some things that may be simple to you, but are very hard to many. I constantly get questions and emails about how to root, run other operating systems, fix this or that, etc. Videos are how I learn best and it seems others do as well. The subscription thing I ask for pays nothing. It just shows me people are interested and that I should put effort into making more. Sorry if this bothers you.

    As for the second question... I am also still learning. On my other samsung netflix was not supported on froyo. But the good news is netflix is on gingerbread so the title still works. Thanks for the education.

    It appears that the subscription thing bothered you. Sorry if that was asking to much. Respectfully, my other android how to vids have a few thousand hits...guess someone needed the help.

    No problem.... late night you know. I will look into it, thanks. All these forums and updates take some time to comb through. Again, just want to help people.
    Do you have a latest version for gingerbread? I will continue to search and then add it to the show notes. Thanks.

    It is just starting, but here is the first of many that need the how to as I do. It is just so hard to filter all this info.

    I do not have a cable, so I cannot test yet. But per the people that put out this leak it does not work. If you try it let us know please.
