    Default [Guide] Netflix on iPhone4
    Netflix has been officially released for all iDevices!
    http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/netflix/id363590051?mt=8

    If you have installed the below hacked version, you must delete it, and reboot then install the official.

    To delete it either open iFile and browse to
    /private/var/stash/Applications/ and then delete Netflix.app or use SSH the same way you copied it, but instead delete it.

    Then reboot and go to the app store and install the official one

    For history sakes I will reduce and recolor the previous method of installing Netflix


    After a quick google search I found this article which had step by step instructions for using Netflix on a 3g[s] but it does not work on the now jailbroke iPhone4 *because of the UserAgent strings I assume*



    So after some quick thinking, I found a way to do it...here is my copy/paste/change method of doing so. Thanks to the original writer at TMCNet....here we go...

    Things you will need:
    Jailbroke iPhone4
    Open SSH or access to / via USB cable
    Netflix for iPad (Free in Appstore)
    Perfect Browser ($0.99 in Appstore
    Paid Netflix account

    Starting with the copy/paste/edit...

    1) Open iTunes on your PC / Mac.

    2) Download Netflix for iPad from iTunes

    3) In iTunes, right-click the Netflix for iPad application & click 'Show in Windows Explorer' or 'Show in Finder'

    4) Rename Netflix 1.0.4.ipa to Netflix 1.0.4.zip.

    5) Extract the entire ZIP file somewhere.

    6) Go into the extracted folder, then the Payload folder.There you'll see the Netflix.app folder containing the entire app.

    7) Copy Netflix.app folder to your iPhone using SSH. After you SSH into your phone (I use Cyberduck on Mac), navigate to:
    /private/var/stash/Applications/, which is where the Netflix.app goes.

    8) Change permissions on the Netflix.app folder to 755 using this command: (On mac using Cyberduck click on 'Go - Open in Terminal App' then login
    chmod -R 755 Netflix.app

    Note: If you use the Terminal app on the iPhone to change permissions, make sure to run "su root" or else you will get this error: "Terminal problem. (operation not permitted)"

    9) Respring (or restart) your phone.

    10) In the App Store buy Perfect Browser for $1.99. When it is installed open it and click the wrenches for settings then click on Desktop Rendering then choose Safari iPad and click the Green Check Mark to accept the changes.



    11) Now in Perfect Browser, browse to Netflix: Rent as many movies as you want for only $8.99 a month! Free Trial, login, and find a movie to watch. You will then see Perfect browser close and the the Quicktime player will open and VOILA! Movies to go




    Thanks to google and tmcnet!

    If you don't want to buy Perfect Browser, you can go this route instead with a new version of User Agent Faker.. Thanks palooz

    4. Set user agent to:

    Mozilla/5.0 (iPad; U; CPU OS 3_2 like Mac OS X; en-us) AppleWebKit/531.21.10 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/4.0.4 Mobile/7B334b Safari/531.21.10

    5. Respring
    6. Go to Netflix.com and play movies instantly on your iPhone.

    I followed the guide to a T and when I load up the movie in Perfect Browser it just closes and sits on my homescreen, quicktime never loads. I read over the guide again and everything was done right. I have no idea as to why the movie never loads.

    EDIT- Seems to be the phone needed an extra respring after downloading Perfect Browser. All is well now, can't wait to abuse this, thanks.

    you have to point to the directory.

    try this:

    chmod -R 755 /private/var/stash/Applications/Netflix.app
    I'd rather be on two wheels.

    It does...just follow the steps.

    I changed my Browser icon to the Netflix one and made my instant queue my homepage.

    Good idea!

    Also you can install Browser Changer from Cydia and make Perfect Browser your default browser for opening web links I missed that so much for the past month with before 'star'

    install Emoji Free! and then you will have an Emoji keyboard accessible from the Globe icon in your OSK
