    All credit to the find and the files goes to Slayher and his original post can be found here: [APP] FM Radio for the Droid 2!! - xda-developers

    This is a guide to show you how to unlock FM radio using a terminal emulator on a rooted Droid 2.

    First things first, you will need the appropriate files which can be found here: http://android.antbox.org/slayher/FMRadio_droid2.zip

    Go ahead and extract these files using Astro or Androzip.

    Next we need to move the actual files, (FMRadio.apk, FMRadioService.apk, fmradioserver, libFMRadio.so, libfmradio_jni.so, libfmradioplayer.so) to /sdcard, aka the root of your SDCARD. This can also be done with Astro using the copy function.

    Alright, once that's done go ahead and open up your favorite terminal emulator and type in the following commands.

    -su
    -mount -o rw,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system
    -cp /sdcard/FMRadio.apk /system/app/FMRadio.apk
    -cp /sdcard/FMRadioService.apk /system/app/FMRadioService.apk
    -cp /sdcard/fmradioserver /system/bin/fmradioserver
    -cp /sdcard/libFMRadio.so /system/lib/libFMRadio.so
    -cp /sdcard/libfmradio_jni.so /system/lib/libfmradio_jni.so
    -cp /sdcard/libfmradioplayer.so /system/lib/libfmradioplayer.so
    -mount -o ro,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system
    -exit

    And you're done! Plug in some speakers or headphones and go ahead and open up FM Radio in your app drawer. Enjoy!

    Any chance the output can be redirected to bluetooth, or are the wired headphones required for the antenna?

    I did this and it worked! But the only problem is that it only plays in my right ear. Do you know how to fix this issue?
