Hacked Netflix App Now Works On Most Devices

Hooray for the amazing people at XDA, again. Thanks to their hard work we have a working version of the Netflix applicaton for most devices. The hack makes it so the application doesn’t check the Device ID, allowing for all the Netflix streaming goodness we have wanted all along. There are currently two versions: one which should work just fine for everyone, and another is for those who experience a crash after launching. Give the first a try and if you have issues, come back for the second. If you continue to have issues, contact the Devs at the forum.

Download Link 1 | Download Link 2

Cheers Terry!

    Just Get an Iphone and avoid all these problems people, maybe that way for once you can actually have a phone with an OS that actually works and not some over fragmented, inefficient, unstable at times OS that has become nothing more then the windows OS equivalent of the computer world (Ironically which is built on linux) Android in case you havent noticed is suffering the same fate of Windows OS, Too many different manufacturers building and designing leads to things not working properly (No Wonder Apple products just work) get a life losers and get a freaking iphone ( Netflix has always worked fine on all IOS Versions)

  • Asdf

    none of them work on the samsung galaxy note….

  • Works on Samsung Admire, Only flaw is that the upper part of the screen is distorted, but nothing that is too annoying.

  • Hommytoffman

    Link 1 totally worked for me on Droid 2 Global! May have device check issues for updates, but I’m confident I’ll survive without (or at least until I can get them legitimately). 

  • Kaelaamari91

    I have Droid Incredible 2 with verizon wireless, all i want is to be able to watch netflix without the terrible white screen.. i can hear audio and select numerous movies and tv shows.

    • Lovely975

      I had installed the 1st link on my non rooted 2.2.1 droid x a week ago and it worked perfectly. A few days ago I tried using it and I got the same msg as you. It wont work anymore. The 2nd link doesn’t even download on my phone! This sux.

     Netflix working great on DroidX Rooted with the first version ginger bread release. With this leap in streaming goodness I wonder when we can expect a hack for Hulu Plus. Gotta even out the playing field with iphone! Anyways THANKS XDA!!!

  • Neither worked for my Fascinate. The first one closed every time I signed in, and the second one gives my error code 1005(unable to connect to Netflix server.) when I try to stream. Currently trying a reinstall to see if there is any change.

    • I’m getting same thing on my Fascinate.  First one crashes right after I enter my email / password.  Second one will do everything except play the movies.  Can search, browse, etc., but when you actually try to play the movie it gives the same error msg.

    Well, I’ve tried it on my TBolt as well with no luck.  Neither file works.  The first one attempts to stream and even starts but then goes back to the main page.  The second one doesn’t stream. 

  • motoisreallypissinmeoffl8tly

     im sure someone already asked but i dont have time to scroll thru 292 comments but when droid x gets the official update soon hopefully will the device check disabled apk. still work cuz ive been waiting for GB but if i cant use netflix after i do the ota i might as well stick to froyo and hope netflix releases an official droid x gb app soon

  • Droidzzz

    Why would I want to pay X amount of dollars per month when I can stream a ridiculous amount of shows and movies through TV Shows Stream and Movie Stream by  Loading Home?

    • Granted

      For me it’s because the quality is always consistent, the selection is outstanding and I have scruples, so watching and downloading illegally, just doesn’t sit well with me.

  • Jcpaltfuel

    For the Xoom can pull up account but can’t play movies


    Doesn’t fully work on Samsung 7″ Galaxy WiFi Tab. Although I can log in see everything that I see on the TV and do everything the same.
    It does load the video in full screen but the screen is black. The audio is fantastic some of the best I’ve heard on the Tab. All the menus work. If not for a black screen it would have been great.

       they are not limiting data yet for phones they always limited tethering data i believe but even when they switch to tiered you will be grandfathered into 29.99 unlimited as long as you keep renewing your contract and dont try and go to att or something and come back as a new customer cuz then you will be stuck with tiered options

    So on my OG Droid, runs on Gingerbread with stock app. My Droid X runs on disabled device check as well as the mod apk file on Froyo. My other Droid X runs stock apk from market place on Gingerbread. Have not ran into problems…. yet…. but will post as I go along.  Oh and keep in mind, if you have a netflix app installed already, uninstall it first, then reinstall. Will get rid of not completing installation.

         I do not have mine anymore, (using a Droid X) but it is still a good phone.

        It is still keeping up with these (next-gen) phones.

        Funny how the Droid Charge and HTC Thunderbolts bring this “amazing” 4G, (which still isn’t true 4G) yet they can’t manage to play Netflix, unlike the phone that started it all.

    • TC

      LOL I have to say that I am loving my OG Droid, running Ultimate Droid 3.3.1 rom which is a GB build 2.3.3. Using LauncherPro and all sorts of goodies suggested by DroidLife articles.  And now Netflix working great streaming movies to my phone as well…I just laugh at my girlfriends i*hone as I do so many different things with my Droid that she can’t.  For me nothing yet beats the OG, and even when the Bionic comes out, I will have to think hard about ponying up the dough for a supposedly better phone until I see that someone has completely rooted one and it can be fully customizable.
      Long live the OG Droid!!

  • Chris

     something i find funny is that it took a big and major company months to release a netflix app on android and after months of waiting its only available on 5 out of 100+ android devices. it took a group of people from a website (XDA) like a week or 2 to make the same app available on more devices. maybe netflix should just take the apk from the XDA website and improve it since its already working on more devices

    • They don’t want it working on more devices because it doesn’t protect their DRM

      • Chris

        you have a link that shows that netflix actually said that? because thats a really bad excuse especially since thunderbolt and droidx 2 aren’t supported and they are 2 of the best verizon phones to use netflix on for many reasons

        •  What I’m saying is, the reason it’s taking them so long is some kind of trouble with getting the DRM to work properly on other devices…I think the issue is any device with a skin on it, basically. And no, I don’t have a link because I don’t have the patience right now to dig through a week’s worth of RSS feed (400-500 articles) and find it. 

          So yes, the folks over at XDA got it working (and I am appreciative, as always, of their work) but Netflix isn’t going to consider it a success or give them credit, because the midset of hacking an app to work on officially non-supported devices doesn’t mesh well with the mindset of DRM.

          • Chris

             o yea i know about that.i personally think its stupid and as a paying netflix subscriber im glad someone hacked their app to make it available on more devices. if netflix cant give me what i want so i can use what im paying for then i want someone else with experience to do it for them.now if XDA can get it working on thunderbolt i’ll b happy.

      I’m guessing while they have a phone type check in the app, they might also have a android version check on there end too… 

  • CONFIRMED working on OG Moto Droid

    Link 1 works great on dx!

  • Kamee Mitchell

    I have DX with Android Version 2.3.3 & I tried both links & my phone can’t install them Why?

    • Bharath

       I had the same issue, uninstall the previous version and then install.

    • Knemchak

      Did not install on my DX until I uninstalled the old one.  Works great.

       I have the same issue on my Droid 2 Global.

    • Justin Fincher

       I have the same issue, with both versions of the app.

  • Steve

     Video begins to load but seizes to allow playback on my Droid 2 (non-rooted). The app works in all other regards, but the lack of playback capability is bumming me out.

     logs in just fine and can browse and search no problem, but when u try to watch something its just a white screen on everything

    This fix works on the thunderbolt if you have the CM7 test 4 rom installed.  Thats the only Rom that it seems to work on for the Tbolt.

  • mbw

    Crashes on my galaxy tab 7.

  • Daniel Archibald33

     make it work for the HTC Thunderbolt. First link installs fine and it starts to play a movie but then quits and I get needs license messages. second link won’t work either

  • Greg

     Works on OG Droid!  So happy!

    • Synergy

       Is it rooted? Where did you get the Netflix apk?

  • Anonymous

     Stock rooted DX working great. Thanks XDA Devs…you guys rock!

  • First one crashes on login and second one gives me an error message saying cant reach service on my Droid charge. Maybe the app isnt built for 4G yet?

  • Chris

     neither works on stock thunderbolt. i dont get how the mobile cell phone with the biggest screen and the fastest processor and a kickstand still doesn’t have netflix support when phones like the incredible 1 have had official netflix support for over a week. maybe netflix needs new management that actually knows what they are doing.

    • There is a problem in our stagefright driver that cyanogen fixed. Look for it in roms soon

    • guest

      Sorry to break it to ya but the thundbolt has neither the biggest screen or the fastest cpu.

      • Chris

         then what verizon phone has a bigger screen and faster cpu?

        • Droid X2 

          • Chris

            true. good point. i guess i wasnt specific enough on the type of phone i prefer. droidx 2 is 3g only with motoblur. 2 reasons why i dont care about the droidx 2. yes its bigger and faster since its newer but i meant the thunderbolt has the biggest screen and fasest cpu for a 4g phone with HTC sense. unless theres a bigger and faster phone that i forgot about?

          • Anonymous

             It’s the phone with the biggest screen and the fastest processor that’s called the HTC Thunderbolt™

          • New_Guy

            There is a reason why it’s called the “Thunderbolt”! Since the DX2 is a 3g phone, a dual core processor means very little when it comes to streaming movies over the internet compared to the aforementioned monster. Especially when the T-Bolt can record 15 – 20 Mbps download speeds. I concur with the original comment…

          • Anonymous

            im pretty sure cpu does account for some of this speed
            it does on computers so i dont see why it wouldnt on a phone 

          •  more like 5 to 6 Mbps this is NOT real 4G

          • wrong

            my thunderbolt can pull 16 Mbps easy from my dorm room… not bad for 4g that “isn’t real” eh?

          •  There Are no real 4G phones thru any service!  Not Verizon Sprint or AT&T  None of them are true 4G

          • Cmtermin8or

            4g means 4th generation a.k.a. new. Lte on ATT and Verizon is 3g speeded up. Like the spped boost of the old 56k modems with earthlink. There will be a definitive cap. Sprint uses wimax. It is new true 4g being microwave techknowledgy. It is hella expensive but wimax + can bring speeds twice as fast as cable internet. That is why comcast put its foot in with clearwire. And yes, we are talking 160mbps download. I think that is 4 or even 5g. 🙂

          • Dj7486

            This isn’t correct at all… wimax is inferior to LTE and lte is true 4g. Att doesn’t have it yet Verizon does. Att uses hspa+ and eventually lte. Hspa + is just boosted 3g. Do your proper research first. Lte is 700 MHz and a whole new spectrum capable twice as fast as wimax

      Then what Verizon phone does have the biggest screen and fastest cpu?

      • Anonymous

        The Droid 2 Global also has a faster processor than the thunderbolt.

      • Anonymous

         Chillax … I think we can at least all agree that at the moment Carriers and Hardware manufacturers need to get their heads out of their asses. The simple fact remains that the largest screen and fastest cpu and most RAM is not the same phone as the one with the fastest network capabilities. That’s a Fail sandwich no matter how you cut it. You can break it down to 3g vs 4g ( which not everyone has or utilizes) or proprietary gui battles (AOSP still destroys) but either way it will still be a while before any one phone truly has it all.

    • Anonymous


      It doesn’t have the biggest screen, like others said.
      Many phones have 4.3 inches, and I believe some will have 4.7, which is just too big.

      It also doesn’t have the fastest processor.

      • Chris

         then what verizon phone has a bigger screen and faster cpu

      • New_Guy

        The only thing that matters when discussing streaming movies over the internet and comparing phones is the network speeds. And the T-Bolt would destroy anything out there with its 4g LTE goodness dripping from every orifice. The fact is with the T-Bolt, Netflix movies would never buffer and could play in relatively high-def. Not to mention the T-Bolt also has DLNA support that could “Tony Stark” the image over to the big screen!

        C’mon son!!!

        • you can get the highest quality stream over 3g speeds, theres really no need for 4g speeds here, no phone has a 1080p screen after all

    • Ban88one

      Well not work on fascinate Qw

    • MatthewPoole27

      I have the Droid Charge, it it doesn’t work either.  I guess with my upgrade, I should of actually downgraded to get some better features huh.Smh

    • Dapino

       its not the fastest processor or the biggest screen. but the kickstand is nice.

    • I’m another one with a Stock TB. We bought 4 phones at the same time in my family. I’m not understanding how the HTC Droid Incredible was an initial Netflix release and it’s Big Brother Thunderbolt can’t even get out of the box working correctly. 

    • [email protected]

      Neither works on the. Incredible2 now what why pay for it when they r going up on price qnd can’t get it right

  • Deraj3518

     Doesnt work on Xoom or Tbolt… Not mine anyway

  •  Second link installed but wouldn’t play.  First link worked.  Droid X, Froyo, Liberty.  I had to manually uninstall a previous (not working) netflix attempt before these would take.

  • Anonymous

    Downloaded fine and logged in fine, but only audio.. screen is blank dinc2.. should I try the second download?

  •  Droidx GB. I am able to see my queue and add things; however, when I go to play something I get a black screen with movie controls. Nothing seems to be playing. Anyone else getting this?

    • Anonymous

      Same on my incredible 2.. have all the controls and plays the audio, but screen is blank.

    • have you tried using one of the previous Netflix apk’s that were posted here? My Netflix is working great on my Droidx w/ GB 4.5.595

      • Same on both versions. I am keeping both APK’s saved in case something changes, but right now I can only look around and update queue. I even tried skipping to another part of the show and I still get the black screen. The time bar isn’t moving either. 

        • both the versions on this post? or other versions previous posts? And not sure if it’ll work for you, but this is the netflix i got working. (link to my dropbox)

      • neither does the Droid 2. But D2 does if you are on Gingerbread.

        its weird.

         It would look far better on the Droid Charge, with its 4.3 inch SUPER DUPER amoled screen.

        And better on the Galaxy S phones.

      No luck on my Transformer as yet, both versions let me browse just fine but I get a “could not connect” error when I try to stream anything. 

      • Supposedly it doesn’t work on non-Qualcomm phones or devices. So it looks llike those of us with the XOOM are out of luck…

    •  it looks promising all the way up to the point where you press the play button and then you get a “cannot connet to netflix” error.
