    Hi guys,

    NookColor with nightly build #108 running from SD card with 6/18 kernal running @1200MHz + 6/13 gapps

    For some reason I can't see Netflix and I can only search for flash player 10.1 instead of 10.2 but when I click on it I can't find it.

    What am I doing wrong?

    thanx

    tim

    You won't see NetFlix in the market for your Nook. You'll need to sideload the APK and then edit the Nook's build.prop file so the device looks like a compatible player to the software.

    The current flash player is 10.3 and I don't have any trouble finding it in the market.

    Ok. I found a couple of builds that do not require a build.prop modification:

    http://dl.dropbox.com/u/28645853/netflix-mod-2.apk
    http://dl.dropbox.com/u/28645853/NetFlix.HiDef.Rotate.Red.v1.2.2.X.apk

    The second one is supposed to be awesome and have perfect HD playback! I'm gonna try em when I can mess with the NookColor - ie, wife has to be gone - present

    I also found a workaround for Hulu on NC:

    http://dl.dropbox.com/u/28645853/Flash_10.3-Hulufied_BRDizzle.apk

    1. delete installed versions of flash
    2. enable instalation of other sources
    3. download dropbox
    4. download flash 10.3 modded (link above)
    5. Install
    6. Change settings in Dolphin HD
    7. Change resolution in Hulu to smallest

    This is still untested for me. But it seems to work for everyone else

    tim

    --------

    I think the issue with me not finding stuff on the Anroid Market is me being used to using Apple's AppStore - it has a much better search function. Gapps requires inputting the exact name.

    I can confirm the Hulu fix. I've done those steps and it worked great.

    Did you make the mod and get it working? What about the other one?

    I'm working on making a bootable SD with the stock ROM at the moment. I'll get back with more details later.

    I'd be interested in hearing more about this Dave (or is that Mr Amazing? :) ), let us know how it turns out.

    Have you tried the Nook Netflix Fixer app? It will change that for you.

    I'll post a new thread


    I haven't tried it yet, I've just been doing it manually. I'll definitely give this a try. :)
