Default [Q] Need help on how to raise the N5's earpice volume with root...

So does anybody know how to raise the earpiece (in call speaker) volume with root, changing values in files and stuff?

I already changed the values for headphones and loudspeaker in the mixer_paths file but I couldn't find the earpiece volume maybe its not ther idk. I searched here in XDA and only found mods and guides that don't work for the nexus 5... So if anybody knows I would appreciate it :P

Use root explorer (or any file manager with root capabilities) and go to /system/etc
Open mixer_path.xml using notepad

Find "ear" and change the values. Max value is 93.
And then push it to /system/etc replacing your old one.
