This does work with the proper app. I just installed Spirit FM Unlocked and it works. It's 10 bucks, but it's worth it, imo. There is also a light version that costs a little over $2 if I remember right. There's another app by the same name. What you want is one of the ones by Mike Reid. Root is required, btw.
