    If its rooted its as easy as using a file explorer and going to your system folders and copying the app and pasting it to your sdcard.

    Yes, it would be under /system/app .

    But sometimes there is an associated "FM Service" APK, and if there are *.odex files, then you'll need those, and everything under /system/framework in order to "DeOdex" the APKs so they can be used on another device.

    And sometimes there might be an APK or JAR file needed from /system/framework.

    My old Droid X had an FM radio app, so if anyone has a rooted one sitting around... (mine is gone)

    I declare, herecy. I would not besmirch the Rezounds good name by bestowing some kind of Moto crap on this phone. To many tears were shed during my time with the DX1 & DX2.

    It wouldn't work anyway. Different hardware. If it were that easy, guys like Newt and Joelz wouldn't be working on the app trying to get it to work.

    Sorry to scare you! You are correct, maybe that app would infect the Rezound with that bad moto mojo.

    Yeah I know but things being the way they are, I had to make sure people understood the reality of it. Especially given the way rumors start around here.

    Uh-oh... reality police. No rumors - where's the fun in that? LOL

    Unfortunately though, you're right....

    Only if the ICS has magic capabilities to connect the chip FM antenna pins somewhere useful.


    (As always, there is always some IMO slim chance I'm wrong and somebody finds some software cure. But I'm not going to waste my time looking for this on the over 50% of Android phones that don't appear to have usable FM capability.)

    I didn't even see the FM radio spec until you brought it up. Or it didn't register when checking out all the other cool features of tis device.

    have you tried checking for the tuner in /dev
    I don't know what it might be named, maybe you can compare with your TB.

    have you considered contacting HTC?

    I can't think of any reason for VZW to want you to not have it (other than a simple desire to be in control).

    hope this gives you some ideas. Looking forward to making the switch (actually, I'm quite disgruntled with the way HP has handled, oh, EVERYTHING! WebOS had grreat potential but they fuxored it. Android is the only other option for me.)
    So this is where it all began huh.....

    Dang it if you don't know how to stir the pot Jerry!

    No true FM radio for the Rezound. If you thought the S-off wire trick was precarious then definitely won't be getting FM radio. Incidentally how good are you with a soldering iron lol.

    Is there any new news on this issue? I had an HTC Thunderbolt that is just about done for and I did an insurance claim on it. They said they could send me an HTC Rezound. I heavily used the FM Tuner on the Thunderbolt to conserve battery power. I used TuneIn and IHeartRadio also, but they drain battery quickly, even the extended battery. I don't really care about data, b/c I'll keep unlimited data. The other issue is that I won't be able to receive local sports broadcasts on TuneIn or IHeart. Of course, this is great when my rival team is playing on my favorite talk station, I get to hear the talk shows from earlier in the day... NO COMMERCIALS!

    Has anyone found any way to re-enable the FM tuner on the Rezound?

    Honestly, no... and most cell phones going forward do not, and will not, have an FM tuner. Sorry.

    From what I've read most phones have the FM capability on the chip that accesses wifi and bluetooth, it's just not "hooked up". Verizon is notorious for neutering the capabilities of phones. There is a thread on Verizon's forum about them doing this to HTC phones.

    I understood your original post, you asked if this had been resolved, worked around, or otherwise gotten it working... My answer is still the same, sorry.

    Sorry, it seemed like you had the same type of flippant response that others had here and elsewhere regarding fm... "oh just use tune in"

    I actually talked with an HTC tech person last night and he said the fm tuner is in the phone, he just can't talk about non-supported items.

    Sorry if I came across wrong with my original post...

    Yes, many phones have an FM tuner as part of the chipset, and the Rezound does have a chipset that supports FM reception but the antenna were not brought out of the chip, even as contacts, so in order to make effective use of it, you would almost have to be sitting on top of a 100,000 watt tower. If you had access to a board design or repair room with microscopes and microscoping soldering tools, you might have access to the equipment needed to find and connect the antenna leads, if they are exposed at all in the chipset, to a make-shift antenna and get it to work.

    Interesting though, I did a quick search on Phone Scoop of current VZW phones with an FM radio, there are only 3... HTC One, HTC One Max, and the Casio Commando 4G/LTE, no other phones have a supported FM radio.

    I am very disappointed to learn that my Samsung note 3 don't have an fm receiver nor is it capable of installing adobe flash player. I traded up from a note ( which readily had both features) thinking I would get more features from a upgraded much more expensive phone . Is there a possible fix to this?

    This is not a Note 3 specific issue, Flash in general is dying in all operating systems... although slowly, and KitKat (JellyBean as well) has no direct support for it, but there are work arounds... You will need to manually install Flash Player and use a different browser that still has Flash support, for more details, look here: [VIDEO] Adobe Flash Install for Samsung Galaxy Note 3 - xda-developers

    As far as the FM radio issue, I think that feature is basically dead in all cell phones... just like terrestrial radio is becoming in general. Most chipsets for phones have the radio tuner capability built in to them, but no manufacturer I am aware of is bringing the antenna out of the chipset to use, and with it's miniaturized technology, it is impossible for even a highly skilled individual to do it themselves. The newest Qualcomm chipsets do not have the FM tuner support at all, although I see in some digging that MediaTek chipsets still do, but these chipsets are not used by "the big boys" for devices sold in the US.
