Re: FM Radio to use Intercom antenna

This is definitely possible but I cannot tell how. I'm thinking of my baofeng walkie talkie that uses the same antenna for fm radio. As a hardware solution you could try to solder a thin wire from antenna to one of the 3.5mm jack's pins (this you'll have to figure out). It's not an ellegant solution...

Re: Some advice for Blackview design team

Sorry to piggyback, but I'd like to add: work with the LineageOS team!  If BlackView devices became official, supported targets for LineageOS, the engineering/development workload would be slashed dramatically.  Updates would be timely.  People like me will essentailly work for free  fixing bugs, a...

Re: BC9500

True. But the foam pads i believe are more durable than the silicon itself. i don't know about the resistance and durability specs of the sanitary silicone since depending on the environement it may be subjected to some extreme temperature and loose sealing efficiency in the long time... while the ...

Re: Need to replace Cellular antenna !!

I replaced mine with a piece of copper wire. So I have one that might work for you. It's the one that used to sit on the upper right corner as you look at the screen of your phone. I have replaced it because I live in a low cell signal area and I wanted a better 4G (LTE) signal. Let me know if you'r...

Re: Some advice for Blackview design team

I agree 100%. Too many models, too small differences... Customers of this type of phones (rugged) want to use their phones till the last drop of life in them, not to buy a new phone every one or two years. Blackview should hold 3 lines: budget (like max 2GB RAM and 16GB space, with cheap cpu and few...

Re: Update = Porn?

On a rooted device there is always the option of modifying iptables rules. It takes some time to learn it but it worths. On the other hand you can't keep your personal data safe unless you make your own ROM, by yourself. So I say this: if google has my data anyway (abandon all hope, they have it!) l...

Re: BC9500

Instead of those pads I would use sanitary silicone. For a better fit, I would put some into a syringe, remove the metal needle from the plastic hose (i mean the plastic hose that is attached by glue to the metal part of the needle), optionally drill a slightly larger hole in the hose and push the s...

Re: Question: BV9500 = BV9500 Pro?

I wondered if the non pro would run the pro ROM without issue. Good! And I assume you didn't discover it actually had the radio bits, just disabled in the non pro ROM? I would wonder if it actually would cost enough to include the one or two chips necessary that they would have them deliberately le...
