So you just had to do it. You go on Netflix, Google Play, or Amazon Appstore and downloaded the newest available update, only to find that it stopped Netflix from working.
You have tried deleting Netflix from your Android device and reinstalling it, with no luck. You try rooting your Android, reinstalling the operating system, and reinstalling the Netflix App. You click on the icon, the screen darkens, and then BLAM, you are back to the Desktop.
You call Netflix, you tell them that it worked before the update. They tell you that it is a problem with your Android Device, or your internet connection, or some other answer that does not get you any closer to watching your movie.
You go online and search. You see people that share your experience. Some have error codes, others have blank screens, and some just blank back to the desktop.
Well, I have found how to fix this issue. Just remember, if you upgrade Netflix, it will stop working and you will have to start the process all over again.
Step 1: Delete Netflix from your Android Device
Got to Settings, Apps, Netflix
Press the “Clear User Data” button, then
Press the “Uninstall” Button
Step 2: Download an Earlier version of Netflix
In your web browser go to:
http://dl.apktops.com/app/201202/Netflix_1.7.0.apk to download the Netflix 1.7.0 directly,
Or go to:
http://www.iapktop.com/netflix-1-7-0.html to learn more about the file you are downloading.
Step 3: Install the Netflix 1.7.0 APK
Download and install an Apps Installer application from the Android Market if you do not already have one installed. Some examples of these are Easy Installer, Appinstaller, or Busybox Installer.
In the Apps Installer application, you will see a list of the APK files stored in the root directory of your memory card.
Select Netflix_1.7.0.apk from the directory that you downloaded it to.
You can now access that Netflix from the menu and enjoy you movies once again.
