Nook Color Netflix Hack

Unfortunately, the playback is slightly choppy on my Phiremod 5.1 CM7 Gingerbread OC’d to 975MHz. So maybe this is why it’s not a supported device. I’ll try again after updating to Phiremod Nook 6.2. UPDATE: Playback is smooth after update to Phiremod 6.2.

Start with a rooted Nook Color… If you don’t have one of those buy it here then root it here and optionally get ROMSs here.

Remount /system as read/write

adb shell
mount -oremount,rw /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system

Edit build.prop to Spoof “Supported” Device

adb pull /system/build.prop

Edit the build.prop and change these lines:

ro.product.model=HTC Vision
ro.product.brand=tmobile
ro.product.name=vision
ro.product.device=vision
ro.product.board=vision
ro.product.manufacturer=HTC

Finally, reboot

adb reboot
