    How to watch Hulu on your rooted Android 2.2 device

    I figured out how to watch hulu on my phone and i wanted to share it with all of you. A few requirements, you must be rooted and have a device that can support flash

    First download this zip file HULU.zip
    Unzip it and load all of files to an sdcard so you can install them
    If you already have flash installed unistall it
    Install "install_huluflash_player.apk"
    Install "flash_fixed_final.apk"
    Install " Hulu.apk"

    Once you have done that it should work i did notice that on my droid incredible running cm6.1 that the sound was super slow and low, so I found a fix a little bit of history when 2.2 came out google used a different codec company from 2.1. This caused a problem for streaming music, like with pandora and stuff so google and every buddy else came out with a fix. Well the fix was great for pandora but messed up hulu bad. OK history lesson over now to fix this ihtfp69 the creator of sky raider roms for the droid incredible as compiled a zip file to undo the audio fix ( he also created the hacked flash files and hulu app) i pulled it off my device and am hosting it here AudioFixRemove.zip for all of you. All you have to do is flash this zip through recovery. That should fix the hulu sound issue now if you are worried about pandora being messed up i couldnt tell a difference but here is a fix for that. Install root explorer open it up and navigate to system- copy build.prop to your sdcard, then put your sdcard in your computer and open up build.prop with a text editor i use notepad ++ navigate to this line

    media.stagefright.enable-http=true

    and change it to

    media.stagefright.enable-http=false

    then save it and put your sdcard back into your device and then open up root explorer and copy and past it into system click yes to replace the old build.prop

    that should fix it. Hope you guys like my work and i hope others try hulu and let me know if it works or not on their devices

    Holy huluhoops batman, this worked like a charm. Currently running MIUI1.1.14 and the only problem I have is my battery heating up to about 48C, but that's my phone/kernel, not the apk. I ran other apps that use flash and had no problems. Kudoos on this! I work 12 hour shifts in a squad and you just brought a little tv back into my life. Thank you.
    Forgot to mention this works on my OG Droid.

    did you follow the steps exactly? you have to uninstall the flash you currently have then install "install_hulu_flash" then install " flash fixed final" and then hulu app and it should work also this hack will let the native hulu site (like through the browser) work to if you turn it on desktop mode

    Yes, 4th attempt unsuccessful. Original Flash was version 10.1.106.15, uninstalled it. Ran first apk which loaded version 10.1.72.7. Second apk took it to version 10.1.92.8. Ran last apk and receive blue cube after selecting a show. Thanks for your hard work... just doesn't want to work for me.
