I'm testing all this on the free version as both Play versions show incompatible. I'd happily pay full price and sideload if we could get it worked out, but like I said, I understand if you'd rather not add another device.

Do you mean you hear a brief burst of FM audio ?
Sorry, I reread my comment. Yea, that was a bit vague. What I meant was that there appeared to be some sort of sound coming from the speaker during the first time the Spirit FM app runs. It fades in, lasts for a second, and fades back out. I thought it was built into the app to test the speaker or something. This only seems happens on the first time the app is run or after clearing cache for Spirit. Beyond that, Spirit does not make a peep.
The Audio-> Method setting of Motorola (which should be automatic) seems to work on almost every Motorola device with FM, custom ROM or stock. If it doesn't work, I'm not sure why.
It didn't work when setting it to Motorola. Restarted the app and everything.
I'll have a look after posting this reply, and report back anything I might find.
You can also try running both Spirit and Motorola app at the same time, with Motorola first, or with Motorola started second.
With the FM app running, but not playing anything, I get no audio from Spirit.
Something curious to note is that Spirit is granted SU rights when the stock FM app opens up.
I also tried it the other way by starting the stock FM app after Spirit, but I heard nothing but crickets.
Beyond that, try enabling Debug-> Silent Loop. If that doesn't work, try disabling Silent Loop and enabling Debug->Play Audiotrack.
Silent Loop gave an error stating "No FM radio found" after closing and restarting the app. Play audiotrack caused a reboot when I closed the app and tried to reopen it. The reboot happened after tapping on the option to "Keep" when the pop up dialog box showed up. After that, it showed the "Please wait..." dialogue box and rebooted. After it finished rebooting, the app opened without the same issue, but still no audio.
Changing Debug-> Audio Focus may also help. Or Debug-> FM API.
Changed Audio Focus to Enable, closed the app, and reopened it. No audio.
Changed FM API to OEM Proprietary, closed app, and reopened it. No audio.
Changed FM API to Low Level, closed app, and reopened it. No audio.
One other weird thing is that Spirit will randomly close when the stock FM app opens up, but it only closes when I hit the power button on the stock app. That may or may not be important that there is a power button in the stock app for the FM radio.

I will respond to the troubleshooting steps I believe are relevant. Let me know if I missed any.
This device is not in the compatibility list.
Motorola Defy XT557
No audio, but RSSI is 20 or more when tuned to known strong stations:
- Audio Method needs to be manually set. Set Menu->Settings-> Audio-> Method to one of the many available methods. You can stay in that config screen and try several methods in a row, listening for audio. Some tips are available in the compatibility list: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...58&postcount=2
No change, but I did hear some sound when enabling different device methods. Nothing special, but they all sounded like someone tapping on a microphone once or twice.
