If you own a Droid that isn’t officially supported by Netflix, you can still download the apk. You have at least two versions of the apk to choose from. There’s the most current version, and there’s an earlier version, 1.2.1. The problem with the most current version of Netflix on the unsupported devices is that the audio is about 15 to 30 seconds ahead of the actual video. The audio and video are in-sync in version 1.2.1, but the quality of the video is less than stellar. There is a green line that appears on the top of the video and the colors in the video bleed a bit. Personally, I prefer version 1.2.1 because the picture quality is not bad enough to prevent me from watching the video. It’s the out of sync audio in the current version that drives me crazy. Try both versions to see which one you prefer. Netflix 1.2.1 || Netflix 1.3
vv0lfs asked: Is their any way to get rid of swype?
I hate it.
If you just want to use something other than Swype, long press (touch and hold) the area that you’re typing in and tap INPUT METHOD. From there, you can select ANDROID KEYBOARD. Also, even when you’re using the Swype keyboard, you can use it like a regular keyboard.
If your battery gets too low, doing something as simple as navigating to a menu or turning down the volume will be impossible. The obvious solution is to charge your battery. I just learned that lesson the hard way after nearly having a heart attack while thinking that I destroyed my phone from rooting it.
Did your Droid lose some of its functionality after you edited the device type in the build.prop file?
So, you edited the build.prop file on your Droid and now it won’t function the way that it used to. Swype doesn’t work. Your camera doesn’t work. Don’t worry. While I don’t have a solution that will get those tools to work with your new build, I can assure you that you haven’t destroyed your phone. You can easily restore those tools by reverting to your original build.prop file.
Perhaps your case is identical to mine. When I first tried to access Tumblr through Opera Mini, I was using version 5.x of Opera Mini and I couldn’t log in because whenever I would type my username or password, the text that I entered would disappear. An upgrade to Opera Mini 6.1 fixed the issue. It also works well with Opera Mobile 11.10. Search the Android market for Opera Mini and/or Opera Mobile and you will be redirected to the latest version.
Skyfire lets you test out the Flash video service for 72 hours. After that, you can purchase a lifetime license for $2.99. Puffin is only $0.99. Both browsers have their benefits and their flaws, which I’ll cover in another post. I recommend that you purchase both of them - especially when you consider the fact that the combined price of the two apps is just $3.98.
