Good news for Hulu fans using Samsung Galaxy S Series devices (I9000, Fascinate, Epic 4G, Captivate, Vibrant, Mesmerize, Showcase) – if your device is running Android 2.2 FroYo, you can now enable Hulu access on it and watch all your favorite TV shows and movies right on your Android phone. Read on for the complete method.
This hack to enable Hulu on Samsung Galaxy S Series devices has been shared with us by XDA-Developers forum member nc2nc2 and it involves quite a clever trick – simply flashing a modified version of Flash Player to your device that is capable of Hulu playback.
While originally released for the Sprint Epic 4G, it has been tested to work on Fascinate by another XDA-Developers forum member lucas.scott and will potentially work on other Samsung Galaxy S series devices as well.
