Default [Q] i9300 no sound in front speaker on incoming calls

Hello everyone,

Just got my S3 ( i9300 ) and surely enough flashed it to latest cm stable from their website which is 10.2.

Everything works, but I have this strange issue with incoming calls. When i answer the call, I cant hear the other person through the front speaker. I need to enable the back speaker and disable it to get sound on the front one. Sometimes the sound would be distorted. This does not happen on outgoing calls, they work perfectly fine.

I later flashed kitkat nightly and it had the same issue.

Problem goes away if i recover to stock. Unfortunately, i can't stand the damn thing.

Baseband v: I9300XXUGMK6, which is the newest for my region and also seems to be most common.

I tried googling, but couldnt find this specific glitch.

Any suggestions would be appriciated.

Thanks

I'm very happy to report, that yes I have. Archidroid rom ( 2.4.6 is the latest stable ).

Occasionally, I still get the same glitch, but it happens once every three reboots and goes away after first time it occurs.

Edit: i've also flashed the new baseband which comes with the rom: I9300XXUGNA8

I had the 2.4.5 installed and had to switch because of the issue, so i switched to archidroid 1.x version and problem was gone, now on archiport(ultimarom beta1) the problem is there again. Thats real sad because the rom is such awesome
So i think sammy had done something in their 4.3 version that fixed that

That's really odd, since I've been using Archi ever since I first flashed it ( at the time I believe it was 2.3.x ), and I'm a happpy user since then.

try dialing outgoing call to whatever number a couple of times and then get some incoming calls?

And yes, Archidroid is awesome, has everything you could possibly want ( the only exception being MHL )

I just have to activate loud speaker and then deactivate during call and sound is normal, a lot of users have the same issue but noone have a 100% solution. I know its awesome and will give it a shot when he release his 2.4.7 with CM

After i had a go with Omni, I can't think of any reason why should I switch back to CM. Arhci mentioned CM's support and developer base as a reason for the switch, will see...

I use my phone at work quite heavily and it's just impossible for me to switch back and forth speakers.
