      Hi Everyone,

      I'm an android developer and I recently acquired a chinese android box from VideoStrong : Meecool KM8 google certified
      As you know Netflix android TV version are prohibited or limited for these android TV Box.
      I try so many version linked on XDA forum, freaktabs, etc... without success.
      I finally found the Netflix [3.2.2-Android TV Mod] apk by tork24 (DeaLabs.com) which is working in HD but NOT in ULTRAHD
      So I decided to rummage the official netflix app, and I found that Netflix app looks for some system properties that I want to share.
      Here, there are :
      sys.amazon.devicename
      sys.display-size
      vendor.display-size
      ro.nrdp.modelgroup
      ro.vendor.nrdp.modelgroup
      ro.nrdp.oemmodel
      ro.vendor.nrdp.oemmodel

      I found how to run Netflix in ULTRAHD mode :

      Requirement:
      - Download the Netflix [3.2.2-Android TV Mod] apk by tork24 : https://drive.google.com/file/d/1qkK...8F4X-Ywcg/view
      - You need a box with Google widevine L1 available
      - Find a way to hide that your android box is rooted or unrooted after modifying build.prop

      Follow these steps

      1/ Your android box is rooted
      - add/modify this line to your /system/build.prop :
      ro.nrdp.modelgroup=FIRETVSTB2015
      sys.display-size=3840x2160
      - Unroot your box

      2/Your box is NOT rooted
      - Enable Debug USB mode
      - type this command
      adb ro.nrdp.modelgroup FIRETVSTB2015
      adb sys.display-size 3840x2160

      3/I DON'T UNDERSTAND

      Don't worry I made an app that do the job for you.
      You'll just have to launch it, instead of netflix app.
      You can download it here :

      https://drive.google.com/file/d/1qKD...DLs91A4uy/view
      or
      https://mega.nz/#!d4FniSYZ!sQ-20oDVR...wLkdlpPITOvftw

      I hope this thread can help you to enjoy Netflix ULTRAHD.
      This method also work to use the Netflix app (6.17 build version) form the PlayStore, but only for HD.
      Just ignore the error -14 message the first time you launch my app.
      Sorry for my bad English.
      If you want to let me a cookie, it is there :

      Give that dev a cookie -> https://www.paypal.me/yablio

      PS : I'm working to how to exploit the ro.nrdp.oemmodel system property. If anyone have an idea...
      It works in Mecool M8s Pro W?

          So, can we be sure that this Xiaomi box will always be able run Netflix in HD ?
          Mi boxes have original Netflix licenses, the support staff must be confused.

                No. The original Mi Box sold by walmart does netflix fine.

                    Yes, since it's a Netflix approved device.
                    Just get the Mi box S as they are the same price and you also then have a Netflix button on the ir remote.

                        It's a good advice but I personally have no use of a box with 1 USB port, no Ethernet port, no SD card slot and 8G ROM

                                So I have a feeling that videostrong knew this was coming, because I received 2 new LB boxes and the firmware had the mobile version of Netflix installed by default..
