hey everyone: what would be the best way to communicate with this thing... UART and HCI I'm guessing as the easiest -- but they would deeeefinitely not be standard HCI commands; any way of getting the know-how on vendor specific commands? can anyone get the broadcom datasheet from the company itself?

i am so keen on this app (Schmave)

I think I got my next app idea. purplerad10 --geohot 16:51, 14 July 2009 (UTC)

I've thought about it, but never tried. it would be awesome if you could pull it off!! --posixninja 17:26, 14 July 2009 (UTC)

The article says the FM chip has an antenna presumably connected, but I talked with MuscleNerd and he believes the chip does not have an antenna. Can someone look into this? Iemit737 23:46, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

Just a quick heads-up; the Linux driver "b43" has recently gained support for LP-PHY devices - and apparently, the 802.11 part of BCM4325 is an LP-PHY. (Testing was done on a different chip, the BCM4312, however.) --.NetRolller 3D 16:48, 28 August 2009 (UTC)

actually I did look into this a bit awhile back. I found that this same exact chip was going to be used in one of the android phones (htc magic I think, not positive), so there's bound to be some linux drivers floating around out there by now. just not sure if the FM part of it was included or not... although I can't help but think how kickass this would be if you could pull off fm transmission over this thing. --posixninja 17:22, 28 August 2009 (UTC)

I've heard, that the FM receiver might be used to communicate with the Nike+ kit. If that's true it must be wired to an antenna. Anyone else heard of this? --Trenskow 16:44, 9 October 2009 (UTC)

iPod Touch G2 supports Nike+ via Bluetooth and doesn't have FM radio. It's very unlikely that the communication protocol in G3 is different.--Blackbox 16:54, 9 October 2009 (UTC)

HCI commands

The CyanogenMod people have been playing with the chip. Perhaps these are the HCI commands you are looking for: --Thewade 16:46, 14 April 2011 (UTC)
