Hi all, wanted to share the bad news... it appears Mike Reid may have passed away. For details I started a separate thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/apps...assed-t3410032

Based on the records we dug up, he passed away in early April.

My team is continuing his work with the OpenHU Project - which will remain open source: http://console.com.co/openhu/

My grief! RIP dear man. Did so much good for so many people, so many years. I was afraid something happened - he wouldn't just disappear, leaving unanswered questions... He was so faithful to his work and support. Bad news indeed...

Heartfelt condolences. Mike was a good man to continue on this wonderful project single-handed, in spite of getting no support from phone & chipset manufacturers. Bought this app in 2012. May his soul rest in peace and his project continue with like-minded people reviving it....

That's really sad news. He was a lone pioneer with the FM app. Fighting against the greedy internet money makers. Always helpful. One of lifes good guys.

What's going on with Spirit FM 1 and 2 as far as the Samsung GS7 ? No one ever seems to address much about the GS7 with regard to the Spirit FM apps. The S7 does have the FM chip (confirmed by Samsung's technical personnel). Moreover, approximately two weeks ago I tried Spirit1 FM on a Sprint-specific GS7 and it indicated there was no hardware support on the device. But that wasn't true, as proven when I then tried another FM broadcast reception app (NextRadio) and found that it immediately tuned and received local FM broadcast stations.

I'm currently hoping to learn what it may take to get Spirit FM operative on the GS7. My situation is that I've just purchased a new unlocked US carrier GS7 (SM-G930U) and activated it on Sprint's network. Unfortunately, NextRadio does not detect the onboard FM chip on this S7 version. That seems to be because Sprint -and perhaps Google- did something different with the carrier-specific version of that app that's bundled with the Sprint software that my device doesn't have. As for my SM-G930U, Samsung assures me that it contains all of the needed hardware to be physically/electronically capable of receiving stations in the FM broadcast band (88-108 MHz). They say it's just the software that's lacking and that all US locked and unlocked S7s have the FM receiver capability.

Interestingly, it was further explained to me that that reason all US domestic SG7s contain the functional hardware for receiving the FM broadcast band is to comply with the FCC's directive for cell phone manufacturers to facilitate the government's EAS text warnings that are sent over the air via the FM stations located in alert areas. The signals are transcribed by these mobile devices into text alerts so people can receive them in the event that the cellular systems are down. My point is that for this particular function to work, and it purportedly does, these devices obviously have to have a live receiver chip/circuit for the FM broadcast band, since that's the mode and frequency range utilized for EAS alerts.

Why don't the Spirit FM apps work on SG7s?

And by the way, I'm very sorry to hear about Mike.

Hello? Is there anyone out there? (Apparently everyone has given up this thread/this discussion since the developer died(obviously a very perfect way to honor someone's work and passing)).
I have a5054N Alcatel one touch fierce xl. Radio application wants unbelievable permissions(contacts, phone status, CAMERA, etc.) Will my phone work for this application? If no, will a device faker app or xmod work? Is there any discussion out there?
