From Android Central:

Video may have killed the radio star, but Cyanogen and the fellows behind the MIUI ROM have revived it for the Nexus One -- the code for the FM radio hardware that's inside the Nexus One has been merged into CyanogenMod and can now be tested by the public at large (that's you and I) in the nightly builds. Do note that nightly builds are the bleeding edge and likely have bugs in them (they're nightly compilations of code and not necessarily a finished release-ready ROM).....

Works great, uses the headphone wire as antennae .....this is from the Chinese MIUI rom that is making waves amongst rooted Nexus1 users.
Cyanogen is incorporating FM in the nightly builds for other phone models.

With Slacker and Pandora, plus all the music I have on my SD card, and with my recently canceled subscription to XM...I haven't listened to FM radio since '02. It's cool that the N1 can do it, but it really doesn't matter to me.

My wonderful cat, Kawie, passed away on 11/23/08. He had a remarkable soul, and I miss him deeply. Thank you, my buddy, for sharing your life with me.

Three reasons for having FM on my cell phone: N P R

When I'm out and about, I like to listen to NPR in my vehicular. When I go to the beach, the river park or to a wet tee shirt contest, I listen to NPR on my cell. :P

Over at the CyanogenMod website, there’s some interesting documentation showing some open features being worked on for CyanogenMod 6. One of these new features is listed as “drunk mode”, with nothing more to explain the feature than “Avoid making unintentional professional phone calls / sms in the middle of the night”. While we’re not entirely sure how this feature will work, it sounds like a pretty good option to us. [via CyanogenMod]


Hmmmm.....not a bad idea. :grin: Maybe phone manufacturers will include breath analyzers in future phones. Could save a few jobs and relationships. :lol:
