    For anybody who is interested, the FM radio capability as seen on the HTC Desire phone, will be available for the Nexus on the next Modaco Sense ROM release (will be r.23)......fixed due to a new kernel it seems (intersectraven's)

    Just had an interesting twitter feed and thought I would share.

    Not really interested in switching to Sense for this functionality but somebody may have been waiting for this ;)

    Well well well, it finally happened. Kudos to the devs.

    I concur, good stuff, but I won't be going to sense anytime soon. I'm sure it'll be on Cyanogen soon enough.

    Intersect Raven is implementing this in one of his kernels. But my wifes Cliq has an FM Radio and it sucks IMO. I would never use it on my phone. But if its ever available... Ill download/flash it...lol

    This is what I'll be waiting for.

    Why not root without unlocking? You risk absolutely nothing but gain all the benefits..

    I figured it was only amont of time. I'm surprised it hasn't come sooner tbh :p. Kudos to Paul. Is the ability to transmit AND recieve going to be present?
