    Has anyone been able to get this to stream? I can get to my account on my A500, but no luck attempting to stream a movie. Get a 1005 error even after installing the mod.

    Which version do I download? I'm a newbie when it comes to this sort of thing. Is there anything special we have to do for it to work or simply just download it?? Thanks!

    Will give it a try. Is it considered an app? I'm trying to figure out where it will be stored because i downloaded thumb keyboard and cannot find it. Well, the beta version which has since expired. Thanks!

    Hi,

    I don't think you need to root.
    You just need to install the apk using a file manager like Astro.

    cheers :)

    OK didnt know anything about a file manager. Is astro free? I'm assuming the a500 didn't come with one?

    Hi,
    connect to wifi network
    launch market <search> Astro
    download & install ASTRO File Manager

    After that...
    go to <apps>
    <launch> Astro File Manager
    search for the apk file in <sdcard>
    <click> apk file
    <click><Open App Manager>
    <click><install>
    <exit> by hitting the back button

    then... look for the installed app icon in <Apps><My Apps> main menu

    cheers :)

    I just downloaded it and get the same error. Did you ever find a fix for it?

    No and probably the best place to get a solution is over on XDA. I'm following the thread.
