fMMS now reached a million downloads (a few days back, actually) on the counter at Thank you everyone that keeps using my application! Thank you also for the patches and suggestions you keep sending me, even though I might be a bit slow to reply at times I do appreciate it and try to integrate/fix things sooner or later. :)

Nice – congratulations!
How about adding option for multiple receivers?

Multiple receivers was added in v1.2.6, so hopefully it works ;-)

I’m running fMMS 1.3.4 on my N900 now, but this blog only mentions 1.3.3

Am I hacked? Should I return my phone to the store to get it fixed?

Thanks for the great tool. But it doesn’t work for most Chinese users without a patch needed.

Hi James,

For explanation about connection modes, please see:
