@spiderio
Does it causes any disortions to the sound if you increase the volume or the sound quality remains the same?

I've felt like I need more volume from the speakers, so thanks!

I'm having issues with opening the mixer_paths with root explorer, however - I cannot open the entire file because it says it's too big. I'm also unable to find the file through the file manager that comes stock with the phone.

It has effect on my g3 D855 10A.
I write the wrong file
The correct one should be mixer_patah_qcwcn.xml

Sorry I got excited and write the wrong file name

Try it again
Set the speaker to 90 to try the effects
