    Got my 7024 a few weeks ago.

    It will run Netflix very well if you get the proper APK file.
    I got mine from the XDA Developers Forum and simply installed it, no modding needed. Flash is a pretty easy thing to get working as well. Rooting is also getting much easier though it isnt needed at this point since Google Market is now very doable non rooted mod for most users.
