A few weeks ago we learned how to watch Netflix on a jailbroken iPhone. Unfortunately this hack doesn’t work for the iPhone 4 but some smart guy over at ModMyI figured out how to tweak it so you can watch Netflix on an iPhone 4.
UPDATE: This post is outdated. Netflix now has its official iPhone app in the App Store. Click here for more info.
Step 1: Download the Netflix app for iPad to iTunes.
Step 2: Right click on the Netflix app you just downloaded and select ‘Show in Windows Explorer’ if you’re on a PC, or ‘Show in Finder’ if you’re on a Mac.
Step 3: Rename Netflix 1.0.4.ipa to Netflix 1.0.4.zip and extract the zip file to your desktop.
Step 4: Look for the Payload folder inside the extracted folder. In there you will find the Netflix.app folder.
Step 5: SSH into your iPhone and copy the Netflix.app folder to /private/var/stash/Applications/.
Step 6: Change the permission on the Netflix.app folder to 755.
Step 7: Reboot your iPhone.
Step 8: Now go to the App Store from your iPhone and download Perfect Browser. Open the app, go to the settings and select Safari iPad under Desktop Rendering.
Step 9: Still in Perfect Browser, navigate to Netflix.com, login, and find a movie to watch instantly. Perfect Browser will close and QuickTime will start playing your movie.
Done. That wasn’t too hard, was it?
