    First:
    1. Download the netflix app
    2. right click it in itunes and go to open in window's explorer
    3. make a folder on your desktop and copy the netflix app to that folder
    4. Make the extension .zip (DO NOT EXTRACT IT)

    Editing and Finishing
    1. Edit info.plist (/payload/Netflix.app)(if you'r using windows I used plist editor for windows by iPod robot)
    2.
    Replace
    Code:
    <key>CFBundleIdentifier</key>
    	<string>com.netflix.Netflix</string>
    
    With this
    Code:
    <key>CFBundleIdentifier</key>
    	<string>com.netflix.NetflixiPod</string>
    
    3.
    Replace
    Code:
    <key>UIDeviceFamily</key>
    	<array>
    <integer>2</integer>
    	</array>
    
    With this
    Code:
    <key>UIDeviceFamily</key>
    	<array>
    <integer>1</integer>
    	</array>
    
    4. Now save that .plist to your desktop

    5. Now go to the root of your ZIPPED folder and open iTunesMetadata.plist

    6. Now change
    Code:
    <key>softwareSupportedDeviceIds</key>
    	<array>
    		<integer>9</integer>
    	</array>
    
    to
    Code:
    <key>softwareSupportedDeviceIds</key>
    	<array>
    		<integer>1</integer>
    	</array>
    
    7. Now replace
    Code:
    <key>softwareVersionBundleId</key>
    	<string>com.netflix.Netflix</string>
    
    With this
    Code:
    <key>softwareVersionBundleId</key>
    	<string>com.netflix.NetflixiPod</string>
    
    8. Drag it into iTunes and install it to your iPhone/iPod Touch


    This part of the tutorial im giving credit to ipodtouch1234 for making it.


    Thanks to Knisitruck from modmyi for the next portion.

    -- 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.
    Finishing Up and Beautification
    1. Enable UA Faker and login to Netflix.
    2. Make a webclip of that "homepage" on your springboard.
    3. With SB Settings, go into more then hide icons and hide the Netflix app icon.
    4. In SSH go here:
    Code:

    /private/var/mobile/Library/WebClips

    5. Find the one that is for Netflix. If you are like me, it will be the only one.
    6. Change the icon.png to the one Here. (thanks to XavierAlucard @ modmyi)
    7. Respring. You are done. Netflix now works seemlessly.

    I dont think it is. I think it only is if you distribute the ipa

    I actually typed it all on my own except the part I gave you credit for. You'r guide did'nt work if you followed it so I fixed some of it as well. Sorry for not asking you id I could use the bottom part though is it ok If I use that?

    P.S. I removed the bottom part of the guide. So if I could use that part it would be great. (the rest that I left there I typed MYSELF. As I said it won't work if you follow your guide exactly).

    Leave it, because it won't work without it. All of the plist edits I listed were exactly the same.

    Well yes they are. That's the only way you can do it. The thing that you did to wrong is that you have to keep the .ipa zipped. And there's a few other thing's you have to do because it has to be zipped
