Thumbs up [FIX] Music Playback Crackling/Clicking Issue

First of all, id like to thank Gokhanmoral and Simone for the support... Special mention to TotallydubbedHD and Studiominal for the great contribution and to all who tested and helped...

The idea was first toasted by Gokhanmoral via PM, that it has something to do with idle status and not with hot-plug issue. Then Simone201 also posted about this on "official sound quality thread" which leads me to test dif configurations and combos... Then i came up with this little Fix:

1. You have to be rooted of course...
2. Flash Siyah Kernel (Sorry for this, since i only tested it with Siyah 1.3.3b and 1.3.7b)
3. Download & Install exTweak by Darek.Xan from the Playstore (Free one will do)
4. Grant Superuser
5. Navigate through the CPU Tab and set the CPU idle mode to; IDLE ONLY
6. Reboot

It was first tested with Siyah kernel 1.3.3b and was confirmed by Studiominal thru his "sinewave" that there were no crackling found in the graph. It has also been confirmed that it also work with 1.3.7b... I cant comment on other kernel since the test was thoroughly done with Siyah...

Hope this help... ENJOY!!!

For more info and progress about this finding, please read thru the thread

Evidence provided
It seems like something in IDLE + LPA, AFTR + LPA, AFTR only causes the audio codec to suffer from power shortage that leads to turning the codec on and off really fast.
And.. to clarify, I only changed the cpu idle mode to IDLE ONLY, and disabled all the audio options that come pre-enabled both to see whether the idle mode is the culprit and wait for the new Voodoo Sound.

Now that the culprit has become more obvious(likely the DAC being not able to perform properly with that low current set by stock setting), we'll see more developers here digging down the kernel with power profiles

DONATE TO ME
Changed the setting to see what the impact on battery life is, i am not sure what lpe and aftr does, so not sure what effect we will see. Probably someone with more insight could clear this up...
