Pretty much all phones have the needed "hardware" in the FM/BT/WiFi combo chip. But hardware disabled phones have the FM antenna pin grounded and thus useless.

Only exception I've ever seen to this is on the G2, which had a very unusual FM/BT switch chip for audio. G3 might possibly have the same, but my primary thoughts about G2 was that the chip was a strange hack they might not repeat for the G3.

G2 service manuals had schematics that better verified. Perhaps the G3 will have service manuals eventually released/leaked to confirm.

I came across the service manual. I'm really not sure how to understand all that into but if it helps someone figure this out if FM can work I'll send it to you. Just PM me with into its like 69mb large over 350 pages.

Just send me a link via email: mikereidis@gmail.com .

In most cases like this, if the schematic has the details, it shows that FM antenna connection is optional, without any indication of which variants are connected or not.

I am pretty sure it's a lost cause.

It's rare these days for a phone with no stock FM app to be able to work. Only examples I can think of are the 2 year old HTC One M7 GPE Google Play Edition, 1 year old-ish Verizon HTC One M8 and Verizon Xperia Z3v I think.

FM on Android flagships is dying; my terminallty decling Spirit income shows that, and I am now looking to move into the Android Auto world.
