    REAL FM Radio for Droid 1, POSSIBLE??!!

    Following the Droid 2 getting the FM Radio. That and knowing a while back someone got the Droid 1 to get real FM Radio but for some reason the project was dropped. Is there ANY Way to get the FM Radio to work. I've read that the chipset is present in the Bluetooth radio. But Audio routing was the issue. Any info?

    From what I have heard, the Droid 1 lacks the physical traces on the motherboard to carry audio from the FM receiver.

    So basically you can tune stations but can't hear them

    So not possible...bummer cause that would of been of been a nice bonus.

    Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

    Just double checked this with the new Miui rom which comes with the radio app. It appears to be a great app, but can deliver no sound via The Droid. Also, it will only get a signal if there is a wired headphone plugged in to the jack.

    If anyone wants to donate a broken Droid I can try my hand at reflowing the processor and tracking back the FM pin to see if it's connected to a test point anywhere. If so it would just be a matter of wiring up a jumper.

    The WL1271 is the Texas Instruments WLAN chipset the Droid 1 uses... it's the one that has the FM radio stuff bundled in +
