Flashable Zip Gains Access To Netflix On Rooted Asus Transformers

Yesterday we found out that the newest Netflix update allowed Honeycomb tablets to enjoy all the movie streaming goodness. Well unfortunately, our rooted Asus Transformer friends were left out in the cold, but a developer over at XDA wasn’t going to let this happen for long, and decided to make it work.

Mistar Muffin has just released a flashable zip for rooted Transformers which takes a certain file (libnvomx.so) from the Motorola XOOM and pushes it to the system of the Transformer, making Netflix miraculously stream the Red Monster (my nickname for Netflix). 

For Rooted Transofrmers Only!

DownloadNetflix Patch.zip

The developer states that if you don’t feel comfortable flashing the zip, you can manually push the file using Root Explorer or any other file manager application. Have fun, and if you run into any issues, let our lovely community sort it out.

Cheers Craig!

    My husband and i have been so fortunate Louis managed to finish up his investigations while using the ideas he was given while using the blog. It’s not at all simplistic just to find yourself giving for free secrets men and women could have been selling. And we all fully understand we have the blog owner to thank for that. The entire explanations you have made, the simple blog menu, the friendships you can make it possible to engender – it’s all overwhelming, and it’s letting our son and our family know that the content is interesting, which is very serious. Thank you for the whole thing!

    Still waiting for NetFlunks to work on my *non*-rooted Transformer.  I know I’m not a programmer, but what can be so utterly difficult getting this to work on a standard 10.1″ screen on the near current version of Honeycomb??  Frustrating and starting to wonder about defecting where it has been out forever and “just works”…argh!

  • RespetaHP

    what benefit do I get from rooting my transformer?

    • Knightcrusader

      Uh… Netflix?

    I got $31.68 f.or a XBOX 360 and m.y mom got a 17 inch Dell laptop for $95.84 being delivered to our house tomorrow by FedEX. I will never again pay expensive retail prices at stores. I even sold a 46 inch HDTV to my boss for $650 and it only cost me $53.79 to get. Here is the website we are using to get all this stuff GrabNow.com

    This guy and Netflix. Leave it alone already.

    If Neflix is the Red Monster, does that mean Blockbuster is the Blue Bug that it squished?

      And Red Box is the new pink box that you crave.

    FYI – this works on Acer Iconia A500 rooted stock (and other HC3.1-based ROMs). It won’t work with Virtuous Xoom, as it’s HC3.2-based.

    The same patch is working on multiple devices, including the Iconia.

    Even for the unrooted transformers the APK is not working.

    • Alex W.

      Pretty much this.  I’ll wait until Asus slows down with the updates before I root my Transformer.

      • Knightcrusader

        Uh, why? If they release an update, you can install it, and then re-root using the nvflash tools.

      It works on my unroted stock transformer. Never been rooted. On 3.1

          • Eric Homeier

            I am on the exact same version and it is clearly not working. If anyone has a suggestion as to why I would welcome it with open arms. I don’t want to root my pad if I don’t have to.

  • Terrance Steiner

    I have an un-rooted Transformer and installed the apk file from yesterdays article and it opened up but did not play and videos.  From the comments it looked like a lot of people with Transformers could not stream Netflix videos.  I see the Transformer as a consumption devise and Asus has been excellent with updates, so I see no reason to root it.  Any help for us non-root Transformer owners to get Netflix to work.

    • Terrance Steiner

      Or more to the point, is there any way to get Netflix to work without rooting it.  If not this my be my use case for rooting the TF.

    • http://www.droid-life.com Tim-o-tato

      Unfortunately, we haven’t found anything yet, but as soon as we do, we will post it up :)

    • Homeycat

      Same here.. it opens up fine but when you go to watch a video it says it cant reach the server

  • Peter Bartholomul

    would this work on the droid eris?

    • http://www.droid-life.com Tim-o-tato

      yes, in fact…..FLASH IT NAO!

      seriously….do not flash this or I will come find you…

        For a second I thought you were being serious, I was like this shouldn’t work at all whatsoever what are you talking about 

      • Gabe

        Will this work on my Razr? What is this “recovery” you speak of?

    • DroidzFX

      If you need libnvomx.so, then perhaps you have some other app that somehow installed this to your device.  What other video apps do you use on your Transformer?

      • Anonymous

        impossible. in order to put that where it needs to be, i need root. i dont have root. never had root.
