Does anybody have the fm radio working with cm7? And if so how would I find the apk.
Sent from my DROID2 using DroidForums
from what I understand, try using "spirit fm" from the app store. I haven't had luck, but others have. I may try it again. FM Radio was about the only thing I missed from blur.
I am pretty sure I have read that the FM radio is Blur based. Therefore it won't work in a ROM that is not blur based, such as CM7. You can probably get it to work on Liberty 3.0
Veritas vos Liberabit
The main issue is some phones have really bad signal strength, but strangely some seem OK. My theory is that there is a software antenna switch, but I don't know where yet.
The MIUI ROM for Droid X has a working FM app now. It uses a bunch of Motorola libraries and binaries. My app works OK on this ROM when run while the MIUI app is run, but otherwise can receive very little.
One funny thing with the Droid X. It's the most popular identified phone with an "active install" of my free app now. It's 5.1% (1,287).
Yet, it doesn't even register in the top 10 for the paid app. This ranges from 13.1% (34) for HTC Desire to 3.1% (8) for LG Optimus 2X.
So do Droid X users tend towards "thrifty" or are these bad reception issues widespread enough that free apps aren't getting unlocked ?
mikereidis, thanks for responding. I had reinstalled Spirit, but when choosing motorola, or motorola2, I only got large bursts of static. I am running CM7 with gingerbread kernel, and its on a droid X (I ended up in the droid 2 forum just because searching for fm solutions brought me here )
I had already uninstalled it, but this weekend I will reinstall and send you the logs.
I also missed my FM radio after I switched to cm7 nightlies. I just installed spirit and it works wonderfully! All I did was set the Motorola option and it picks up all stations in Wilmington, nc crystal clear. I am using a Motorola droidx with the latest nightly of cyanogenmod. I just wanted to commend you on a job well done! Thank you!
I wish we knew why some Droid X's work fine but others don't !
If more Droid X users would buy my unlocker, I might have enough to purchase one used and determine the problem. With "bad luck" though, I might get one that works...
