    Netflix needs to put out back in the market. I still had netflix from before and it works.. it says there is an update, but due to netflix removing it from the market, we don’t get it. Call netflix

    Just got it in So. California at 7:45 am. Netflix is working great. I downloaded Netflix last night, but now I don’t see it in market. My old Netflix app had stopped working before I updated to Gingerbread.

    I hope this update also fixes the rebooting issue.

    Downloading the system update as I type this. Let’s see if it fixes my speech to text issue that Gingerbread screwed up.

    I updated Netflix in the marke minutes before it was taken out. I got lucky…. Now I am enjoying box office smashes! However, I know a work around to download netflix from the market and I got my buddy up and running too! Good luck guys!

    Bill, I’m not sure if it works on gtab. I have the evo and after I downloaded the gb fix there was still no netflix in the market. I’m not a technical person but I was not going to bed til my netflix was working again. I downloaded 4 apks til I found the one that worked on my stock evo.

    Lisa, Thanks! I have an Evo and GTablet. It works for both. On the GTablet is still have /system/build.prop changed. I will try changing it back later.

    I wish netflix would just put it in the market – if it works (it will) it works, if it doesn’t, it doesn’t. How many need to tell netflix it works, so the apk is back in the market?
