How to Watch Netflix in HD on Rooted Devices ( Get Widevine L1 Support )

This guide outlines the steps through which you could watch Netflix in HD on rooted devices. Once you have unlocked the device’s bootloader, then you lose the Widevine L1 certification. As a result, you won’t be able to watch Netflix content in HD. Well, this is something that happens with most of the OEMs. But with some Motorola devices (Action, Vision, etc) even after unlocking/rooting, many apps show it to be Widevine L1 supported, but the real picture comes out once we launch the Netflix app.

    Thanks for the guide, but it is not working.
    I have a rooted OnePlus 7 Pro with (OOS 10.3.8) with Magisk v23. I even downloaded the required version of Netflix (v7.44.0 build 34701) from downzen, as mentioned in the patch readme. But even after doing the above-written steps, the app is stuck on L3 certification.
