Unable to download Netflix App

Recommended Posts

I can confirm that the app itself does not (yet?) complain about rooting per-se.

Rooted, Google-free Pro1 with LineageOS 16.0 here. That's good-old "su" (on modified root partition), no magisk hiding anything about it. I could install Netflix via Aurora store and it is getting updated normally.

I never had any Netflix issues on the rooted Pro1 with LOS 18.1, either.

That said, I wouldn't know whether the Netflix app might have been marked as incompatible at some point; once it's installed, I don't think it would get deleted.

You might want to download the APK (like with https://apps.evozi.com/apk-downloader/ from Google's Play Store), if all else fails.

For what it's worth, another update of Netflix (to version "8.35.0 build 19 50257") just came in via Aurora. Runs just fine on rooted, GAPPs-free LOS 16.0.

Seems like it is indeed just a matter of circumventing the Google Play store ...
