    Specs

    Android version: 2.2.1 (Froyo)
    Rom: D1-MIUI.1.3.5
    Kernel: 2.6.32-lowV-1.1Ghz-ChevyNo1

    Mods

    Using Absolute System I changed to build.prop information to:
    ro.product.model=HTC Vision
    ro.product.manufacturer=HTC

    as shown "here".

    Steps

    1. Install netflix apk here or here (choose first apk, not device check disabled)
    2. Install Adobe Flash 10.3 from Market
    3. Change build.prop info as shown above
    4. Reboot
    5. Start Netflix

    After logging in, you should now be able to stream TV shows and movies on your Motorola Droid.

    All I had to do was download the Netflix apk and it's worked like a charm for a couple weeks now.

    You can get it officially off of the market now, nothing fancy necessary.

    Is this a new thread? I got netflix straight from the market a couple days ago, and it works just fine.

    Wow, this was a waste of time. I didn't know that they had included more devices for the app. I did all those steps to my phone for no reason. I guess I learned some things in the process. Now to undo everything and just load Netflix from the market. Cheers.

    It was pointless to not bring it to the droid especially when they released it onto the ipod and that device has been jailbroken for a while too. Oh well! I'm happy!
