fmradio-300x256 A Moto CLIQ user named Eugene has figured a way to get some FM Radio to go with your amazing Android device using a non-standard ROM.

At the present time, it will not work on the standard build and is not available to the public at this point. Currently it only works if you have your headphones plugged in. Check with AndroidGuys for further instructions and updates to get FM radio on your Moto CLIQ.

While trying to fix the radio issue with Moto Blur on the LG ROM he has running on the CLIQ, Eugene stumbled across a lib file that was missing in the normal Blur ROM. He also noticed FMRadio was present in the bin file. After some deep contemplation (not really), Eugene loaded the bin and lib FMRadio files and an apk he found floating around–one intended for this purpose–and voila, FM Radio started working! So by bringing in the files from the LG ROM that the CLIQ hardware needed, he was able to bring life to a dormant feature.

Seems pretty sweet! I am all for having my phone not only make phone calls but surf the web, listen to FM radio, give turn by turn directions, and anything else I can get it to do. Streaming music with apps like Pandora is great and all, but FM radio still provides that local flava’ that make this feature totally worth tuning in.
