RFM22B transceiver on miniWireless22 using RadioHead Library

So I'm attempting to use HopeRF's RFM22B on Anarduino's miniWireless22 (Anarduino MiniWireless Details) connected to the FTDI breakout board - 5V (https://www.sparkfun.com/products/9716) to make a transmitter and receiver. The boards are transceivers so I'm just using two of the miniWireless-22-433 boards. Whenever I try to run the device through the android IDE, I get the init failed response.

This is the RadioHead library in use: GitHub - PaulStoffregen/RadioHead: Version of RadioHead library for Teensy boards

If anyone has experience with the project or thinks they may be able to help, I appreciate it.

Thank you
