Use any file explorer and navigate to /system/vendor/etc
Copy the audio.effects.conf in that location
Navigate to /system/etc and paste the file you copied there
Once copied change the permissions to match the other files in the /system/etc folder
Install Viper and it should work this time, apparently the audio.effects.conf file is expected to be in the /system/etc location and is not there by default for some reason....

THX for your hints ... is this necessary as well on tab s ?
Quote:

extract from system, and backup audio.effects.conf in both system/etc and system/vendor/etc
Insert under libraries section in both files

Code:
  v4a_fx {
   path /system/lib/soundfx/libv4a_fx_ics.so
  }
... and under the effects section again both files
  v4a_standard_fx  {
    library v4a_fx
    uuid 41d3c987-e6cf-11e3-a88a-11aba5d5c51b
   }
push back to thier places, set permissions, reboot.

For advanced users I suppose you could just create a symlink to the other location also but I didn't try this myself.

let me know if this works for everybody else, so far it has worked on both of my Tab's

Make sure to cruise by the Viper thread and thank metaljim also as he gave me the initial help which headed me in the direction of adding the file to system etc.

Thank you very much for the solution. Only one thing: there is a typo. The filename isn't "audio.effects.conf" but "audio_effects.conf".

Here is the version I try with a Symlink and via ADB, which runs fine also:

- connect Tab S via usb-cable and open command shell with access to adb.exe

Code:
adb root
adb shell
mount -ro remount,rw /system
ln -s /system/vendor/etc/audio_effects.conf /system/etc/audio_effects.conf
exit
After a reboot the installation of Viper works.
