Motorola DROID X, DROID 2 and First-gen DROID each get Netflix app ported to it
Thursday afternoon, as we reported, Netflix released its app for certain Android models. Conspicuous by its absence is any Motorola produced Android model. But no sooner did DROID branded models get the cold shoulder than the guys over at Xda-developers came up with a way to port over the app to three of the more popular DROID units.

The Motorola DROID X, DROID 2 and the first-gen DROID can be loaded up with Netflix. First, you need to have the model running Gingerbread either from a leaked version of Android 2.3 or from a custom ROM that runs Gingerbread. Click on over to the sourcelink for the apk.

As one Motorola DROID X owner said about running the Netflix app on his phone, "Note for DX: I'm running the first GB leak, rooted, build 4.5.573 and it's working flawlessly. Some people on .588 are reporting it doesn't work, those on .591 and .595 seem to be having success."

The three DROID models are close to EOL status with replacement models on the way. Most likely we will see the Netflix app launch for the Motorola DROID X2 and the DROID 3 and perhaps even come pre-installed on one or both models. In the meantime, if you are ambitious enough and don't want to take no for an answer, install the apk from the sourcelink and within 30 minutes you will be sitting back with liquid refreshment in one hand, watching a movie on your DROID from Netflix's vast portfolio of celluloid.
