Now, if that service is discovered, we could possibly get a D2 user to copy the necessary files for us with D2G to enjoy FM radio...

Any news?

After a full year without a Droid * and scratching my head, I think I've finally cracked the Motorola FM secret.

I got a Droid X about a month ago and "unfortunately" it didn't have the problem. Only some do.

But recently I got a Verizon Droid 2 CDMA with the problem, and it's working now. I think it even improved reception on the Droid X.

The latest version of Spirit FM free is here: http://www.mediafire.com/?v369y5839c7dgoz

Give it SU or it will only be able to use the Motorola OEM API which may not exist or may not work well on many ROMs.

Menu->Settings->Audio->Method should get invisibly set to "Motorola" but you can try setting manually to that, or others, if you have no audio but see RSSI values over 10 at upper left.

Let me know.

Send me a debug log with Menu->Test->Email->Logs and after a few seconds. enter "Droid2" in the email text and press send.

It is, but look at his signature...

Alternately, you could also try flashing the attached zip from recovery. It's essentially the Moto DX FM app made flashable & ported to the D2. It should work for recent CM7 D2 ROMs, say April 2012 or newer, but no guarantees. Will it work on older CM7, MIUI, other CM7 based ROMs, or similar devices (D2G, Milestone2)- maybe, try it & report back. Will it work on CM9- probably not, but I have no idea. You may also need to "force stop" it (or any D2 FM app) to avoid battery drain. As far as I'm aware, no D2 FM app provides speaker mode, or 2 channel audio. Spirit FM may conquer that someday, but don't count on it given the number of devices he supports. That said, if you want free & functional, try this. If you want guaranteed functionality, buy Spirit FM.

Great summary, thanks !

Yes, see the top of post 1 for the latest Free version links: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=13379669


One funny thing is that the audio actually IS in stereo, from reports I've read. It's just that one channel is extremely low in volume. It might be fixable.

Motorola used the ancient OSS audio API it appears. I was getting close to tackling it, but "life and family time" are an issue and I'm pretty busy with the latest high end devices such as SGS3 and HTC OneX.

I even bought a Droid2 recently, but IMO when used Galaxy S's and Desire HDs can be bought for as low as $100 or so, then for many people it's become time to move on.

Not everyone can afford to move on of course. And there's that keyboard too...

If I could afford to move on I would. Also like a kb and a removable battery. Think I will get that g2 off of CL soon.
Droid 2 is dead and if you are stupid, like me, unrootable.

I always enjoy reading your technical sleuthing, even if it is usually over my head. I'll certainly buy Spirit FM if you figure out FM stereo on the D2. I know that's hardly motivational, but think of the priceless satisfaction you'll feel.

I can afford to move on, but the D2 is just about the perfect form factor for me. There's the keyboard & removable battery as mentioned, and FM, plenty of horsepower, good stable ROMs, and it does everything I want/need it to.

Thankfully, there's even an SBF for the currently unrootable .621 update, so at least nobody's stuck with a brick (but I suspect you know that). There are some devs working on rooting it, and one just got his hands on a D2, so I bet they'll have something by the end of summer.
