    It is not about money.. it is about convenience.. You would rather have FM in your mobile than carry a Mobile and an FM Radio as separate devices.. Also note that in India FM is a big draw.. everyone travelling in public transport is hooked on FM during their commute to office etc.

    FM Radio would have been icing on the cake. But some day some developer comes with kernel which enables FM in 1+1+0xygen=110 possibilities, may be infinite possibilities.

    Hard if the ground pins are under the circuit, and still hard even if they were on the sides and they are so small that the solder would probably go on the nearby pins too.

    Not a good option.. as it'll cost me for the data.. whereas if it had FM capability it would have been free...

    FM radio would be great. Using an internet radio at sporting with live commentary is no good a lot of times, there is a noticeable lag and you end up hearing commentary 3-5 seconds after the event.

    I also want radio, I've found that it's kernel not hardware fault
    "kernel does not have the needed Qualcomm "IRIS" V4L FM driver at /dev/radio0." do You know any custom rom that has the normal wired radio?

    The major issue is, the radio pin is grounded. It means, even if we add it in the kernel, it will still not work.
    Please check this, http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=54945465&postcount=7.
    I know it is not mentioned as hardware-disabled. But looks like it is.
    We are always optimistic that it would work. But, I think it is a dead-end and we should try to accept it.

    People PLEASE UNDERSTAND - quit telling people to use apps - that is NOT the reason for wanting the FM chip turned on. FM would be used with ZERO data being used. If there is a weather issue & the towers are down you FM tuner could save your life.
    EVERYONE posting one here knows about the apps in the store.
    Moderators QUIT deleting posts about the OPO having the chip, IT DOES the kernel disables it.
    I have had 5 posts deleted by the same Moderator saying it does not -

    Agreed. Unfortunately I've found most users on this forum give bad advice, or say things that are absolutely incorrect. Not surprised to hear moderators are censoring and contributing to the problem.
