Any chance of getting the radio fm working on Sailfish X for Sony XA2?

Tracked by Jolla (In release)

asked 2019-08-19 12:26:17 +0300

As a avid user of radio FM services, I really miss this feature in my XA2 with SailfishOS.

I already have this feature working on the SailfishOS port for the OnePlus X and I can say that it works really well with the official Multimedia app.

As the radio FM is the only feature completely missed on the XA2, and the Sony XA2 has all the hardware to support it and Jolla already have this characteristic working on other devices, is there any chance of getting the radio fm working on Sailfish X for the Sony XA2?

Yeah, this feature would be welcome and is necessary for our XA2.

Really needed. At least in Spain this is a killer feature, FM radio is quite popular here.

Plus: FM radio for the Xperia X would also be great!

FM Radio for Xperia X is already available on Sony AOSP with kernel 3.10: https://developer.sony.com/develop/open-devices/get-started/supported-devices-and-functionality/current-platform-functionality-maintained/

Same with Xperia XA2, where FM Radio is in the AOSP program: https://github.com/sonyxperiadev/vendor-qcom-opensource-fm

Even looking deeper, a quick search shows /dev/msm_fm on the main branch

I would also love to see this feature in the near future.

Is it possible?

Other point to use the radio FM too is the battery saving. Radio FM receiver is far better energy saving than the internet data. Avoiding the use of internet data is always a battery care.

Done. Thanks for the clarification and sorry for the inconveniences it may caused

This should be a standard function, I'm wondering why its not integrated. Radio FM works very well on intex aquafish running sfos 2.x.

Unfortunately, there will be no FM Radio for Xperia X. This feature is not in the 4.4. kernel of Xperia X.

The question is actually about the Xperia XA2, not the Xperia X.
