It’s no secret that the Nexus One is at least technically capable of FM radio support, just take the HTC Desire as Exhibit A. They both share the same Broadcom chip, but for whatever reason FM support was nixed for the N1 though it made it onto the Desire just fine. Now thanks to some more hackery courtesy of XDA-Developers, a modified Nexus One kernel will enable the feature on rooted handsets. Alas, until there is a ROM with the feature integrated it won’t be easily accessible to the general root public. It shouldn’t be too long, though, as Paul O’Brien is already cooking up a new N1 Froyo build with FM radio intact.
