    first this is not my fix. i am just passing it along for those interested. i have followed the guide and it works like a charm!

    thanks to imneveral0ne over at xda!

    1. Download Flash 10.2 on your phone, make sure its set to not auto update

    2. Download http://www.mediafire.com/file/en3tj7...flashplayer.so

    3. Use Root Explorer or ADB to put the file in: /data/data/com.adobe.flashplayer/lib

    4. If it asks if you want to overwrite the file chose yes, i know it will if you use root explorer, not sure about adb cause i didnt use it.

    5. Enjoy Hulu on your ThunderBolt!


    also, make sure your browser is not set to use mobile. it will not work if it is set to that. so if your using stock browser un-check mobile view. if your using dolphin HD make sure your User Agent is set to Desktop.

    You might want to tell people that they need ROOT in order to do this.

    Not for people who are not familiar with Root or are new to android.

    You should give credit to the people that figured it out, namely s197 from incredibleforum.com

    It's awesome either way, but give credit where it's due, just as they did a day and a half ago when it was posted on xda.

    Thank you, I am a 6 day old Android newbie, and wish people would explain more when they say "just do this", or "turn that off" to someone like me, I have no clue where to go, what to do. ;)

    This makes me want to root so bad. I'm either gonna go with this or hope that netflix decides to give us some love.

    I don't think you need root anymore as he has now posted an apk. I can't tell though because I rooted my phone on the first day I got it! Hulu is working wonderful if I turn my phone on its side AND pop out the video.

    FYI i did thank the original poster in my post on XDA and the people who helped me make an apk out of it. afaik, you dont need to be rooted to install the apk that i have attatched in my post on xda. just make sure you have the settings enabled to install out of market apps.

    also, when i try to DL the .apk, my phone says *the content is not supported on the phone. no application can be found to open this file. do you still want to download it?*

    Ideas?
