    I'm not exactly sure on this, but you need a kernel that supports it. If you want this feature try getting cyanogenmod running on it. It installs a fm radio app with it.

    Is that a different OS?
    Will it wipe out all my apps and stuff if I install it?

    Is your wired headphones plugged in? FM radios on phones (and old walkmans) need the headphones plugged in to work. The wires in the headphones act as the FM antenna.

    What are the steps I need to take to install Cyanogenmod?
    Including backing up everything.
    I'm not asking for a tutorial or anything just the steps I need to take in, order and I can do the research from there.


    Nexus one
    Android 2.3.1
    Baseband v32.36.28u-4.0.00.12-7
    Kernel v2.6.35.7-59410-gda07db7
    build number
    micromod v2.0 (aosp Gingerbread)

    The person I bought the phone from rooted it whatever that is, sorry I've only modded iphones.

    Thanks for any help
