    Official Netflix Working On SGS2

    I was curious to see if Netflix would work on my S2 so I downloaded the apk floating around that disables the device check. I can now use all features of the Netflix app including streaming of movies. However, everytime I launched the app it would tell me that an update in the market was available and I would have to cancel the nag to stream my movies. One day I decided to allow it to update seeing as how if it were to break my usable installation I could just reload the apk that I originally used. Even after updating to an official Netflix update the streaming still works.

    I am using it on CM7 flawlessly.
    I cut corners till I break it.
    If I help you break it, I will help you fix it...promise!

    I wasn't expecting it to work. I pretty much had given up because it only recently started working on the Xoom. Since the S2 isn't available over here I figured I was going to be barking up the wrong tree.

    Same here. Even over 3G the quality is excellent.

    When you say apk that's floating around, what are you referring to and where should I be looking? If that's info you can share and don't mind sharing. I have a little one and would love to keep her occupied using Netflix on my SII.

    Thanks anyway...a quick Google search and I found what you were referring to and I'll give it a try.

    I would say you would have to search for it. Ollie has not been heard from for a long time.
