    I've tried searching this problem on Google and the forums, so forgive me if this is a repeat (which I'm sure it is...)

    I'm on Fresh and the FM radio tuner has been removed. It's in the "Fresh-removed-apks-3" folder. I tried installing from HtcFMradio.apk using ES File Explorer and I keep getting "Application not installed". I copied and pasted it to the sdcard main folder and tried from there and get the same issue. I also tried File Manager and AppInstaller.

    I found another .apk online and tried installing from that apk, now I get a force close every time I try to run it. I read somewhere that wiping the data using Settings > Applications > Manage Apps > All, etc then resetting it works, but Clear Data was grayed out. I wiped the data with Titanium and then reset but I'm still getting a force close...

    Any advice on making it work? Thanks.

    If I'm not mistaken, you need to copy the apk itself to /system/app. Don't try to install it.

    I am going to be honest...I have never been able to get this to work lol.

    there is a thread somewhere that explains how to make a zip and flash it in recovery.

    fresh claims just clicking on it will reinstall it

    and sometimes you can copy it into /system/app (you must make writable) that may be what I did wrong last time.

    there are also directions on xda on how to adb push it

    i adb pushed it to system/app and it said -rw next to it, doesn't that mean its readable and writable? still didn't work. :/

    I am going to pm you a link ...try grabbing the apk out of the zip file and see if that one works

    You might try Astro for a simple way to install an APK.

    Just curious why you are using the native app for FM radio? With Iheart and Tune In any AM/FM station can be played with much better clarity and no need for a headphone/antenna.

    the problem with installing from the apk was it kept giving me a "application not installed" error. i hadn't heard of those other ones, i'll give tune in a go because it has more stars on the market :)

    IHeartradio will have the Clear Channel stations and Tune In will have all of the others.
