Hi folks !

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

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

There's not a single FM app on the market.:eek:
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 :rolleyes:. 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 :eek:

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.

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...

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.

Just one thing left to be done

Hi yipyipyip,

Thanks a lot for your modified version! I like very much the fact that the wired headset is not required anymore. Mainly because if the USB cable is attatched (usual way to have your phone charged whilst listening to FM radio for hours), it is enough to have strong stations sinthonized.

The only thing I miss now is: whenever an A2DP connection is found to be active, all current sound souces (MP3s, notifications, etc.) are routed to it. Would it be possible to have the same behaviour implemented here? I mean, if either the sound is currently being sent to the speakerphone, or through a new button, dedicated to bluetooth headsets, perhaps?

Thanks, anyway.

Regards,
Carlos

Hi,
Really thanks for this app.
the only thing is that ir seems I'm the one who has the app to close (hide and sometimes crash) when I edit one channel's name. And from that time on I can't use that channel anymore.

Do you have the same issues? Can you help me?

Thank you, bye!

Just found this thread & thought I'd give it a go - works fine on froyo 2.2.2 on the Nordic 3.4.2-177 ROM.

I needed the headset in to get a signal but picked up the stations easily & sound works fine in loudspeaker mode.

Thanks :)

there are some stations i'd loke to listen to wich are not covered by the original app :-/

or is it possible to modify the program itself??
