    It does...just follow the steps.

    I changed my Browser icon to the Netflix one and made my instant queue my homepage.

    How exactly did you change the icon to the Netflix one?

    Did you read my question?? I know it works on an IP4 - I have it running... I was asking if it might work on a 3GS running 4.0.1?

    Anyone ????
    Did you read my answer not comprehend it???

    The firmware is the same, so I don't think there should be an issue. Next....time....I'll....be....more....specific

    How exactly did you change the icon to the Netflix one?
    I SSH'd into the phone and replaced the Icon.png for the Browser app with a Netflix one that I found. Google "Netflix app png" and you'll find a good one.

    I got it to work. The unzip program I was using was corrupting the file. My next question is how do stop perfect browser from opening the last page I was on after i finish watching a show? It just keep relaunching the last thing I was watching.

    I just wanted to add to this really quick. I am running an iPhone 4 with ios 4.0.1.

    I used ifunbox to SSH into my phone. Following the directions, I added the ipad netflix app to the appropriate directory.

    I don't think there is a way to change the permissions within ifunbox. So I used iFile instead. Drill down to /private/var/stash/Applications/Netflix.app/Netflix

    Click on the arrow to the right. Where it says Access Permissions change it to:

    User Read, Write, Execute
    Group Read, Execute
    World Read, Execute

    Here is a link on how to change permissions in iFile:
    http://ihackmyi.com/forum/index.php?topic=4214.0

    Common permissions:

    644
    User: Read, Write
    Group: Read
    World: Read

    755
    User: Read, Write, Execute
    Group: Read, Execute
    World: Read, Execute

    775
    User: Read, Write, Execute
    Group: Read, Write, Execute
    World: Read, Execute

    Next, I downloaded the ultimate browser (now 1.99), changed the settings to iPad.

    Just another way to accomplish the same thing.

    After a quick google search I found this article which had step by step instructions for using Netflix on a 3g[s] but it does not work on the now jailbroke iPhone4 *because of the UserAgent strings I assume*



    So after some quick thinking, I found a way to do it...here is my copy/paste/change method of doing so. Thanks to the original writer at TMCNet....here we go...

    Things you will need:
    Jailbroke iPhone4
    Open SSH or access to / via USB cable
    Netflix for iPad (Free in Appstore)
    Perfect Browser ($0.99 in Appstore
    Paid Netflix account

    Starting with the copy/paste/edit...

    1) Open iTunes on your PC / Mac.

    2) Download Netflix for iPad from iTunes

    3) In iTunes, right-click the Netflix for iPad application & click 'Show in Windows Explorer' or 'Show in Finder'

    4) Rename Netflix 1.0.4.ipa to Netflix 1.0.4.zip.

    5) Extract the entire ZIP file somewhere.

    6) Go into the extracted folder, then the Payload folder.There you'll see the Netflix.app folder containing the entire app.

    7) Copy Netflix.app folder to your iPhone using SSH. After you SSH into your phone (I use Cyberduck on Mac), navigate to:
    /private/var/stash/Applications/, which is where the Netflix.app goes.

    8) Change permissions on the Netflix.app folder to 755 using this command: (On mac using Cyberduck click on 'Go - Open in Terminal App' then login
    chmod -R 755 Netflix.app

    Note: If you use the Terminal app on the iPhone to change permissions, make sure to run "su root" or else you will get this error: "Terminal problem. (operation not permitted)"

    9) Respring (or restart) your phone.

    10) In the App Store buy Perfect Browser for $1.99. When it is installed open it and click the wrenches for settings then click on Desktop Rendering then choose Safari iPad and click the Green Check Mark to accept the changes.



    11) Now in Perfect Browser, browse to Netflix: Rent as many movies as you want for only $8.99 a month! Free Trial, login, and find a movie to watch. You will then see Perfect browser close and the the Quicktime player will open and VOILA! Movies to go




    Thanks to google and tmcnet!
    No matter what I do in terminal it always gives me the error (I'm logged in with su root). What can I do?
