How to use your rooted Dell Streak as an OTA FM Radio

Streak-radio If you're a Dell Streak user who wishes that you could use your favorite pocket tablet as an FM radio, then listen up! Awexdasome over on xda-developers has figured out a way to get your 5-inch smartphone working as a fully functional OTA FM radio — no data connection or WiFi required.

All you need to do to listen to the radio on your Streak is download the three .zip files found in the link below, unzip them, and copy the files inside to your Streak's SD card. From there, just install the two apps, and copy the other file to System/Bin in Root Explorer, making sure that the system can't overwrite the file.

Finally, just open up the Streak Radio app, hit "on," and open up Sprint FM Radio to enjoy.
