Audio [MOD] Volume Boosting for SM-N900 [ROOT] * Discontinued *

*** DISCONTINUED DUE TO MY TIME RESTRICTIONS***



Hi All,

This is my first thread so please excuse me if I'm breaching any rules.

This is a Volume Boost MOD for SM-900 version of our beloved Note 3. You need a ROOTED Device!

MOD.zip is for a high boost and
MOD_Moderate.zip is for a moderate boost.
MOD_Little.zip is for a little boost. (This is intended to be in between Stock and Moderate)

Note that these are all relative and changes from one's taste to that of another.



This mod increases the Speaker volume when the speaker is on during
- a phone conversation,
- music playback
- Ringtones, notifications..etc

Additionally, there's a slight increase in the wired headphone during Music Playback.


1- BACKUP YOUR ysound.xml file under /system/etc. Then, Unzip the desired MOD provided in zip attached and overwrite ysound.xml file to /system/etc with the file explorer of your choice. Here, I used ES Explorer.

2- Once you're done unzipping and overwriting the existing ysound.xml file select the file then press "More" , then "Properties", then "Change" button for the "Permissions". Apply -rw-r-r-- for the permissions. Attached, you'll see the screenshots for the procedure.

3- Once you make SURE that you followed the instructions, reboot the device.

4- In case you want to come back to the original stock version of the file, either put back your backup or unzip the attached ORIGINAL.zip and apply the above 1 and 2.

Hope this is useful.


PS. Please can someone find out and share what the line 3558 is for in the modded file that I attached? Thank you.

Kartal, thanks for this mod, I think this is also valid for SM-N9000Q for Turkish phones, right?

Regards.

Yes, this MOD should work on all SM-900 models, including the Turkish SM-N9000Q. Mine is SM-N9000Q and it works flawlessly.

This MOD has nothing to do with the phone ID or firmware (as long as the device is SM-N900). Btw, you can easily change the phone ID.

best,
Gürhan

I adjusted so that the music doesn't get distorted heavily. I suggest that you use it at around 90% volume as it sounds OK to me. Just try it yourself, start from 100% volume and come down gradually until you are happy with the sound.

I am pretty sure it is not gonna break your speakers, at least..

the only thing is that i would like to wait to root it...

maybe you know if there is an app (without root) to encrease the volume?

I am coming from s4 rooted with sound mod installed and the quality is ok but the volume is too low (like s4 stock)...

Unfortunately, there's no way to use this MOD without root. There are other apps in Google Play but they work differently (if they work for Note3 at all). This MOD modifies the xml script of Yamaha.
