Why stylus?

What do you mean by "adapter", konefatp? I assume one of these.
I got me one straight after I got the TP and the radio works just by plugging it in, no need to use the stylus. So I don't see your point.

I think he meant the "stock" multi adapter.

I also use a generic adapter from China and the radio works without any headphones.

It would be awesome if someone could just crack the radio app and get rid of the verification.

Or you guys can be smart about it and flip to the "Headset" dword key to 1 in the registry(hklm\system\state)... so it thinks a wired headset is plugged in, even though it isnt :)

Alternatively you can also try the xFM radio player I wrote, it doesn't check earphone and support more features such as read radio text, listen to police station by selecting Japan band etc.

Sorry for that poor interface and you have to use system build-in volume control because it is still under research.
Initially I was going to write a powerful beautiful FM radio player for my Raphael but all users hope me to research TMC for navigation system.

Click FM Radio in my signature to get that FM player..

It doesn't work for me if it doesn't detect the earphones :(

I can get RSSI 47 but it will still not play until I plug in some earphones.

RDS works perfect without the earphones but not the sound.

Sorry, it seems a bug somewhere... just like I still don't know how to control volume.
Thanks for your testing.

If I can be more help with the testing, just let me know what I have to do, I would really like this app to work in the Raph.

PS: I am a software developer too but I haven't done much for WinMo.

i sense the easiest app ever created :p i'm going to go make a toggle cab... (my programming skills suck, too bad there no powershell for WM :) )
If toggling that reg setting does work, then you could create an app that sets it, launches the radio app and waits for the radio app to finish, and then switches it back again - pretty straightforward. However, is anybody getting any signal without the headphones plugged in? I don't seem to get anything.

Cheers,

Steve.

The stylus in the 3.5mm jack socket trick is genius now it looks as though I have some really special aerial. I love it, Brilliant :)

I tried this, I can launch the Radio program, but there is just no sound (even when I put on speaker)

As for the XFMradio program, I can't get any station... don't know how it work. I'm from Montreal, btw
