OnePlus 2 with FM radio chip?


Would you prefer to have FM radio chip on OP2?

  1. Yes, definately. (I like to listen to my local radio. Why not?)

  2. No. (I like to waste money on streaming music)

  3. Who cares? (It's not the end of the world)

    In OPO the FM chip exists but is not activated.
    I would love to get the FM feature on the OP2. I listen to my local radio station all the time at home and in car.

    Would you like to get this feature on OP2?

    @Carl, @Pete, @Cat H can you comment on this or conform? If no, why not?

    Qualcomm website:
    Countless connections.
    Tune in to FM radio, or tune out with Bluetooth connected headphones. Snapdragon processors enable all the connections you need to get the most out of or into your device. Connections include:
    Other Phones using Qualcomm 810 Chip has FM radio capabilities.

    Wasting money on streaming music? That's kind of strange. You can choose what you want to listen with streaming services, which is always cheaper than buying cd's. With radio you can't really choose which specific song you want to listen. So I'll just keep my Spotify premium

    I totally get it. But while traveling or on the go it uses data. That sucks.
    And if you have the feature, Why not make it available?

    I don't consider streaming audio a waste. Those in major cities with lots of options to choose from may not understand the problem. I live in a small town, where 6 FM stations exist, of which i listen to 3 (4 if I include the wife's tastes-shes a little bit country, im a little bit rock and roll) the problem is all of the channels get their programming from one single company located in a large city somewhere. So even of the styles I like, i hear the same 10-15 songs at least 4 times a week. So yes thank you I will stream...its WAY cheaper than Sat radio.

    More....Its on XDA

    "It's possible to make it work if there is a connection between chip and headphone jack. (For antenna)"

    "I talked to the developer of SPIRIT FM and he told me this"


    Thanks for the log.

    It looks like it has a Qualcomm FM/BT/WiFi combo chip.

    But the kernel does not have the needed Qualcomm "IRIS" V4L FM driver at /dev/radio0.

    Disabling the kernel driver is pretty unusual; even Google Nexus devices don't do that, despite that their FM antenna pins are hardware disabled.

    A kernel that supports the FM V4L driver is needed to test any further.
