Netflix on a rooted 2.1 not working

Post by PensFan66 »

Does anyone have netflix working on a rooted 2.1? I used the standard latest image and deployed it - netflix will launch but will not play anything, get an error that says :

"We're having trouble playing this title right now. Please try later or select a different title."

I also tried to update the netflix directory, no issues with doing that, using the latest logitech image (Copying /system/netflix over) and same issues.

I rooted my Revue last night and had the same exact issue. But as a disclaimer, I was using a friends netflix account which I never used before so I'm not sure if that's related.

It might be the account, but in my case Its my own account and it works great from a PC, 360, Android Phone ..... I can only assume the issue the netflix from the Rooted image? Sucks, I would really like netflix working

Can we get a third (or forth) person to confirm or deny this?

Does Netflex work on your rooted 2.1 Revue?

I can confirm that netflix is not working on 2.1 rooted, when you start the movie it comes back that it can not be accessed at this time.

bummer..

hope for a quick fix. :(

Cool - keep us posted. I did try an APK install and that install failed, but it wasnt the version you posted a link to ... Might be worth a try...

[11:01] <@zenofex> its b54202

Concerns me since Hulu is one reason Im rooted in the first place :)
