Netflix Hacked to Run on iPhone

ModMyi forum member Knisitruck has managed to hack Netflix into working on the iPhone.

I needed the mediaplayer frameworks from an iPad [/System/Library/Frameworks/MediaPlayer.framework], thanks to one of your forum members, I was able to get that. Then, it still wouldn't work. Noticing my winterboard theme was overriding the mediaplayer layout I disabled it, retried the app and viola, it worked! All that had to be changed was a couple lines in the applications info.plist file and the mediaplayer frameworks, along with a manual install/permissions. (My other apps requiring mediaplayer still run fine.)

But, having said that, I see why Netflix hasn't released an iPhone client yet. Reasons why:
● Huge battery drain - 25% of battery for around 15min of streaming, drains pretty quick while browsing the app as well.
● Crashing - I suspect memory is the issue here, and also probably because it's made for another device. Happened when browsing too fast through the app(lots of clicks).
● 3G Speed - Takes forever to load the app and to start streaming (does work though)

Take a look at some screenshots below...
