HTC EVO 3D Netflix/Flashlight app withdrawals? We got ya covered! (Update)

If you went from the HTC EVO 4G to the HTC EVO 3D, Netflix hasn’t been very nice to you for the last month or so. Things seemed way too perfect when the HTC EVO 4G received its long-awaited Gingerbread update. The good ol’ EVO 4G was now even faster and smoother, and everything was working great. Until you tried to watch your favorite shows on Netflix, that is. It was definitely a downer to see the Gingerbread update got rid of your Netflix compatibility, but this problem was fixed with another update issued about 2 weeks ago.

Now those hard-core HTC EVO 4G fans who decided to go for its successor, the HTC EVO 3D, probably have their spirits down again. While the EVO 3D is a better device overall, it is lacking Netflix support. Also, many have been complaining about the lack of the Flashlight app (a simple, but very helpful and necessary app the EVO 3D did not inherit from the EVO 4G).

For those with Netflix/Flashlight withdrawals (or those who just want these apps on their brand new EVO 3D), there is a solution. You won’t be able to find these apps on the Android Market. But if you get the unmodified apps from the EVO 4G, they can be sideloaded into the HTC’s 3D smartphone. You find the apk files for these two apps at the Pocketables Forums and install them yourself.

I have personally tested both apps on the HTC EVO 3D and they work perfectly. You guys should be set to watch your favorite movies on Netflix now. If you do happen to run into any problems, please let us know so we can further investigate the topic. Is this working for everyone?


It has been brought to our attention that the download links no longer work. Seems like too many of you were trying to hop on these links, and they have been canceled due to a high level of traffic! Do not fear, though, here is another set of links for you!



Thanks for the heads up, Kevin!

  • http://Website PFC Samuel Harbison

    I just got it sorted out, netflix works flawlessly. All I need now is netflix to stream 3d movies.

    Should I be freaked that the install says I am allowing the app access to what seems like a lot on my phone? Just nervous since it is a non market app and I am new to this.
