    ^ How were you able to fake the UA?

  2. #82
    Edit: fatzac's method seems to work the best.

    I wasnt able to get the actual app working again, but I have been able to stream movies on my iphone again. I faked the user agent by modifying the uafaker.plist to include: 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/7B367 Safari/531.21.10
    Safari thinks the device is an iPad. If you go to neflix.com in safari and click on a movie the netflix app will pop up and the movie will stream. If anyone has a way to get the actual app working again please let me know. (I was thinking UAFaker could possibly be used to spoof the neflix app as well as safari, but I have not figured out a way to make this happen yet)
    plist can be found at: /private/var/mobile/Library/SBSettings/Toggles/UAFaker/UAFaker.plist

    I don't know about anyone else but I haven't experienced any of the battery issues previously described
    I just watched an episode of tv ~ 23 min over the 3g network and after starting with a full battery I ended with 91% left

    ^ did you change your framework? Mine works fine off the iphone frameworks and I don't see a big battery issue.

    Updated install guide:

    This sounds like a long process but is really simple stuff.


    Note that the Netflix this will give you is more like the iPad version. (Almost identical to the desktop.)

    -- Pre-Phone install --
    Open iTunes on PC
    Download Netflix for iPad
    Locate in iTunes, right click
    (OSX)Show in finder/(Windows)Show in Windows Explorer
    (OSX)Rename Netflix.ipa to Netflix.zip, hit "Use .zip" / (Windows) If file extensions are shown, rename to Netflix.zip. Else, use winrar to extract.
    Extract and go into the extracted folder, then payload (Netflix -> PayLoad). There you'll find Netflix.app

    -- Getting it on your Phone --
    SSH into your phone and navigate to /private/var/stash/Applications/
    Upload the Netflix.app folder into that directory.
    Change permissions on the Netflix.app folder to 755 recursive for files & directories.
    Respring (or restart) your phone.
    The app should now be appearing on your home screen.

    -- Installing SBSettings and UAFaker --
    To fake the useragent and thus allow you to stream movies, you need 2 applications from Cydia.
    Open Cydia, search for SBSettings and UAFaker. You'll need both of them.
    Install and follow the prompts.

    -- Changing your useragent --
    Now you'll need to set the useragent as the iPad.
    SSH into your phone again and navigate to /private/var/mobile/Library/SBSettings/Toggles/UAFaker/
    Download the UAFaker.plist file and open it up with an editor (Google is your friend here).
    Find the UserAgent key, it will be listed after the <key>UserAgent</key> and say something like "Mozilla/5.0 ..."
    Replace that string with:
    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/7B367 Safari/531.21.10
    -- Thanks fatzac

    Save and re-upload that file, overwrite the old one.
    Now respring (or reboot) again.
    Open SBSettings (swipe the top bar that has your wifi, carrier, clock, etc. from left to right) and make sure UAFaker is enabled.

    -- Streaming --
    All done, to stream to your phone just open MobileSafari and browse to netflix.com. When you click play on a movie it will open the netflix app and play, when you click done it will close and return you to safari

    To disable the iPad web view, just turn UAFaker off.


    -- To change the big red box icon --
    Download this icon -> http://modmyi.com/forums/attachments...phone-icon.png -- Thanks XavierAlucard
    Rename it to icon.png
    Browse to /private/var/stash/Applications/Netflix.app/
    Upload and overwrite, need to respring or reboot to show changes.

    Before you do this, note by replacing the 3.1.x MediaPlayer.framework you'll be losing your play/pause/forward/backward buttons in the iPod app. (Home button double-tap will still work)
    Also, that the netflix you'll be using is more like the iPad version. (Almost identical to the desktop.)

    -- This part might be skippable on OS 4.x or higher, someone confirm if you can. --
    Download the iPhoneOS3.2 MediaPlayer.framework from http://modmyi.com/forums/ipad-jailbr...framework.html -- Thanks Retell/ttierno2
    SSH to your phone and navigate to /System/Library/Frameworks/
    Download a backup of your current MediaPlayer.framework folder and store it somewhere safe.
    Delete the folder on your phone.
    Now upload the one from iPhoneOS3.2 as a replacement.
    Change permissions on the MediaPlayer.framework folder to 755 recursive, files and folders.

    Pre-Phone install
    Open iTunes on PC
    Download Netflix for iPad
    Locate in iTunes, right click
    (OSX)Show in finder/(Windows)Show in Windows Explorer
    (OSX)Rename Netflix.ipa to Netflix.zip, hit "Use .zip" / (Windows) If file extensions are shown, rename to Netflix.zip. Else, use winrar to extract.

    Thanks it worked! I recommend not trying to launch the Netflix app because it shut off my iPod and it took a while to boot up. Just launch it from safari like you said. It works great thanks! This works definitely!

    I have been using the iphone framework only. I used the iPad framework and didnt notice a difference except the battery life.

  15. #94
    Updated for clarity. I must have an odd case. When I load it without the 3.2 frameworks I end up with it taking me to the app store.

    Please correct me if I am wrong. This doesn't work on 4.0 beta 4. I would try to install this but UA Faker can't work without SBSettings? I would like to try this but I am on Jailbroken 4.0 Beta 4 and don't want to have to restore.

    I've tried both frameworks, when I click on play in mobile safari, the netflix app launches perfectly, then I get a popup that says "can not play movie, please try again later." them the netflix screen goes white with "404" in the top left corner. Sounds like a server issue, or like the page/movie cannot be found. The problem is that I have tried many movies with the same result... Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

  20. #98
    In my original instructions I didn't use the iPad frameworks as I don't have an iPad and it worked OK. I'm kinda bummed that this only worked for a few days. I was really enjoying my contribution to the community. I'm glad that this has sparked others with more knowledge than I to delve deeper and come up with a solution.

    I just reinstalled the app and tried through that and I am also getting the white 404 screen. I haven't tried the method through safari with the uafaker yet. They're probably blocking us again. We must be driving them nuts. Maybe they'll get the hint and release an official app, but I'm not going to hold my breath.

    I was also getting the white screen with the 404 error for a while this morning. My set up (original iphone framework/ uafaker) has started working again. Can anyone else confirm?
