    Droid 2's FM Radio Unlocked


    The FM radio feature that was previously hidden in the hardware of the Droid 2 has just been unlocked by XDA and you can all have it. It seems this has became a game of hide and seek with the manufacturer and our great Android community. It starts out wit a company like Motorola putting a cool feature on a device, but then before releasing it... hides it for what might be a future update. Then the game is now the developers turn. They start out not knowing what they can do with the phone, but going by the specs. Later on they go through some codes... Find a feature, then unlock it.

    Is that not just a very annoying way to work?
    Regardless... If FM radio is what you want, FM radio is what you will get.

    My wife has the D2 and I never looked but Im guessing it doesnt/didnt have the Radio app like the DX has?

    Sometimes a "smartphone" is only as smart as its user.

    Why would the functionality be there, but the app and other necessary files NOT be included??? I dont get it....it aint like it was gonna raise the cost of making the phone.

    Note about this hack;

    The system folder on the stock ROM is already very close to full. You will not be able to move the needed files into system without deleting bloatware apps. I removed the Amazon MP3 and the Blockbuster app. If you plan on doing an OTA update in the future either backup your ROM BEFORE you modify or DON'T DO IT AT ALL. The bloatware apps need to be in place to do OTA updates. I encourage everyone to backup the least adulterated of their configurations and use that for any OTA update in the future.

    I did all the required things to do on my Droid 1 hoping that it was backwards compatible.

    The hardware has to be there. For some reason it was apparently disabled on the D2. Weird.
