Default FM Radio standalaone app, modded

Hi folks !

== modded APP for FM radio on the defy ==

The FM radio of the Defy, only work with the "ConnectedMusicPlayer"...

There's not a single FM app on the market.
AFAIK that's because of the lack of API. or closed source of motorola's API.

based on excellent droid2 radio hack by "slayher".

this app from slayher works out-of-the-box.

The added-value of my version is that it will work even in flight-mode, and without headset.

of course, expect crappy reception without headset . put a metal wire or some stuff on the jack !
And I don't understand why FM is disallowed in flight mode, when WiFi is allowed ... that beats me ....

the new app is modded with apktool, signed with "Auto-sign" from "Dave Da illest" so i bet it is not official signing

should work on other moto/FM phones too.

yip

XDA is awesone ! can't have done anything w/o the hackers here !

no warranty, this app could damage your phone and (more probably) bug because I'm not a skilled hacker and made a dirty hack.

Reciving without antenna quality is really bad. Catches signal almost only "from hands".

yep, it is bad, but if you stick some metal stuff on the jack it is way better.
Also you can turn the phone around, the position of phone is important for receiving quality, especially without antenna.

I did this because in rare occasions, I would have like to listen radio ( forgot the headset ) and could have managed a home-made antenna, or I was in a area with good reception.
I hate it when you know it should work, but the limit is the software.

the "flight'mode" feature is perhaps more useful. that was a nonsense to prevent it. FM is a receiver-only...

Does not work for me. Still wants the headset plugged in, either it doesnt start

Edit:
After rebooting it is working.
So, thank you for sharing

2.2 ? I don't know if it will work. it has been tested on 2.1 only I think.

fedorfl is right, seems like the new app is not installed.

What is your original app ? do you have a defy with ConnectedMusicPlayer or something else?

You might want to backup your original apps somewhere first. These are not available on the market, and not easy to get on internet.
