If you are trying to run the Netflix on your Nook Color then this is a God send. An application developed by the XDA forum member brianf21 for the CM7 (CyanogenMod 7) users. It will update the /system/build.prop file on your Nook Color. More specifically it changes the ro.product.manufacturer=bn to ro.product.manufacturer=HTC. It also allows to revert the change. Device must be rebooted for the change to take effect. SDCard users might have to update the Busybox in order to make it work.
