    this app works great! i had just bought a nook color on 6/26/11 so it had the new 1.2 software. I rooted it with CM7 but netflix would not come up in the amazon or android market. When I downloaded netflix from different forums it would always be fast forwarding the movies. So i deleted the netflixs app and downloaded the Nook Odds and Ends.apk app. I installed it first ,then reinstalled the netflix app again and it now works perfectly!!!!GREAT APP!!!!!!!!!!!
