Has anyone been able to get the FM radio to work on anything other than the stock setup? I have flashed K3, Sacs, and Xnote and have not been able to figure out how to get use of the FM radio back. I restored my nandroid backup to stock and the FM works again. Any help to point me in the right direction would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I haven't flashed every rom you mentioned, so I can't say with 100% certainty, but it's probably due to a mod in those custom roms, to increase sound volume. The increased volume hack, breaks the FM radio.

There ya go, another validation. That mod isn't worth it if you're using the FM antenna.

So I am guessing that we need someone to mod the FM radio apps to work with the volume mod.

I'm guessing you don't use the volume m mod if you want a radio. The loudness and audio quality from viper4android doesn't need an extra kick. It's already got it. Anything on top of it is just distortion.

I agree. I have used Viper for awhile and the volume mod is to much. I tried restoring the vol mod back to stock and still no workie. Any other ideas?

Next radio
You have to use the NextRadio app. I think it is the Sprint Featured folder on Stock. Also have to have the headphones plugged in.

I was finally able to get the FM radio working on X note rom. I haven't tested any other apps at this point so I don't know the full impact of the changes.
