Radio now working after using UniversalAndroot ..Thanks for the App and info


I've got UniversalAndroot, the first time I click root it tells me it fails. the 2nd time I click it it says it works. (this happens everytime). I get the superuser request for this app and give it permision. However the radio on off button fails to do anything.

From terminal it says fm_hcitool is not found.

I'm running a stock ATT Streak 1.6.

Any thoughts?

This forum is great, BTW.

you need to update to 2.1, it has the bcom_fm driver and tools to make the fm receiver active

I cannot get it to work, even after SU. Running stock 1.6 rooted. Screenshot below (ignore weird keyboard in pic as screen was rotating during screenshot).


Maybe read the thread ?

Possibly only for Android 2.1 (build 8105).

The first line of this thread states that it does not work with 1.6...

you need to update to 2.1, it has the bcom_fm driver and tools to make the fm receiver active


So for the 4th time, you need to be on 2.1 rooted

now that we have a working radio and that we know it supports RDS, would it be possible to add RDS feature to the app ?

thanks.

The RDS isn't functional as far as I can tell, there's a lot of functionality that doesn't work .. like setting the output to the speaker etc...

really ?

if that's correct, it is too bad.
how did you try RDS ?
maybe it's just a matter of parsing ...

You don't understand what I'm doing to get the radio to work, I'm just using the fm_hcitool to do basic operations. When I use the parse option it doesn't do anything... unless anyone can show me differently? then I'll implement it.

I don't know ; I am just trying to throw an idea.

maybe we should first use the parse command and then turn RDS power on , or off-on ?

I haven't tried RDS but the speaker can be enabled with simple patch. It worked for me. I can post it if you want to...

Ok. fm_hcitool_speaker has speaker enabled by default and works fine. However I have just found there's major drawback - once you use this (_speaker) version, you can't switch back to the headphones, you have to restart your Streak. Maybe I will play with it more later.

Is it possible to lower the frequency range starting from 76MHz? The FM broadcast range is different in Japan. Thanks!
