I guess I'm lucky. I've had this phone since July 18th and have used the aux with external speakers at work often with no issues. It sounds great. I did install VIPERANDROID FX but had no issues before or after the install. The usb charger cable is always plugged in when I use the external speakers. I'll try it without the cable to see if there's a difference. Won't be able to do that until Tuesday because the speakers are at work and I'm not going near that place until the Holiday weekend is over.

Update: Tested aux without usb cable and have no issue. Working fine.

I have zero problems on headphones but the AUX out is definitely finicky. The problem is that it's trying to either sense impedance or grounding that's not working very well.

Until they figure out a software patch for this or someone gives us a ROM that disables a rather useless feature I've been using one of these with excellent success... It has enough resistance to trigger the jack every time without issue.

We shouldn't have to do it but this "feature" was definitely implemented very poorly and I'm OK with the workaround simply because of the gorgeous screen.
