NexusLouderV4B1 4.3 only

Completed
- Porting over libs
- Testing Xlouder libs
- Testing HTC libs
- Debugging & reloading of apps.

Missing :

- Since ROM's are still experimental, therefore these builds are considered experimental until proven stable.
- Lack of kernel with audio boost


Bugs:

- Raising the volume in-app (noozy) won't increase past 10/15, you need to tab out, raise the volume and accept to bypass the safety limit
- Bass needs retuning and so do some volume levels
- New codecs were added in 4.3, they need to be affected aswell and added to media_codecs.xml aswell as audio_config, atm they are't tuned
- Revert causes no audio, can be fixed by flashing your ROM again.
- Not compatible with PowerAMP yet.

Changelog NexusLouderV4B1

-Updated Beats libs
-Updated Soundcontrol libs
-Updated Dolby apk & libs
-Updated Codecs sys/etc
-Updated Alsa files & codecs
-Removed SoundEnchancements
-Added Samsung volume hacks
-Updated Volume.db, soundbooster.txt, media xml & codecs.
-Optimized battery consumption
-Updates core libs based on new CM10.2

TestBuild#2

-Fixes issues with DSP changes not taking effect
-Fixes issues with static sound
-Fixes issues with loudness fluctuation
-AwesomeBeats, EIZO, Dolby all work now

Will keep editing this post as more updates pursue---In the meanwhile

Audio [MOD] [N4] BEATS+XLOUDER 4.4.1/4.4.2 [22/12/13] ☆ #BangonPhilippines! ☆



Notice: Flashables are divided into Post #1 and Post #2. Post #1 will contain all the information, misc & flashables for 4.2.2/4.2,1 and Post #2 will contain the experimental nightlies, take note all the latest will be the most recent upload. 4.2.2 builds start from V2B4

What This Mod Does:

Nexus devices have pitifully low volume. Previous fixes like the Volume+ app and Franco's app only increased the volume on music playback, or in the headphones, but did nothing for in-call volume or notifications.

This mod changes all that. It will increase ALL volume, across the entire phone: ringtone, music, notifications, loudspeaker sound, ear speaker sound, in-call volume, and headset.

Requirements:

-Rooted.
-Custom recovery like CWM or TWRP.
-Jellybean Deodexed OR Odexed.
-Custom kernel with high quality audio tweak enabled is recommended (e.g. Franco or Trinity or AK).
-Nandroid Backup, I implore people to have at least one recent one as this method is faster.


Compatible With :

-Universal for all kernels and ROMs.
-All major players, including: Google Music, Noozy, PowerAMP (see note below), Apollo, PlayerPRO.

Note on PowerAMP - To allow PowerAMP to be controlled by external DSP/EQ you must disable Direct Volume Control under Audio Tweaks in Settings.

Installation:

*Revert previously installed patch as necessary.

1. Copy zip to Internal Storage
2. Boot to custom recovery
3. Install zip from sdcard
4. Reboot
5. Choose EIZO ReWire PRO under Settings > Sound > Music Effects


Note: If you do not have the "Music Effects" submenu then EIZO should be enabled by default since it's the only DSP present.


FAQ:

What you should do:
  • Configure EIZO, Select it in Music Effects.
  • Refer to the Op for EIZO settings.
  • Practice tuning your own values. EVERY user has their own listening experience. What sounds good to one and not the other doesn't become the fault of the MOD.
  • Keep backups of your Alsa Mixer if you use call recording BEFORE flashing this MOD
  • Keep backups (The revert is safe) but I am not responsible for loops if you flash this on another device.
  • Flash the MOD after every ROM flash. Not necessarily kernel flash.
  • Search if your ROM has been mentioned. KEYWORDS are a must. Example is 'PA works' and the results will be displayed. If not feel free to ask and I shall assist you.

What you shouldn't do:
  • Test the loudness via Settings. There is an implemented system limiter so you can't tell the difference. Call yourself or sms yourself so you can know the difference.
  • Complain of distortion without testing your own values. I've set a recommend layout in the OP hoping it's to give you an idea.
  • Error 7, Error 7 is a halt procedure. Please debug the error and see what's written before saying Error 7 only.
  • Alternate flashing. (I know some of you prefer to flash the Gnexus mod on the N7 but doing so breaks the media codes, if you have the patience to swap the media codes in etc folder of the N7 then it's fine)
  • Don't use Noozy lockscreen controls, they're unreliable till a new app is remade.
  • Don't use compression in EIZO. Causes massive volume fluctuations as it was set to be an AVLS.
  • Please refrain from asking about PowerAMP as it denies the use of third party DSP's which make PlayerPro a better alternative.

Credits:
  • Awesome.. who's done a great job, and a big thanks to bigxie too for the epic 4.1 port.
  • montrealguy for fixing up this guide for me where it wasn't as clear as it should be, Thanks buddy, much appreciated.
  • TheGingerbreadMan for testing out and giving feedbacks on each version religiously to make sure it works flawlessly.
  • Cyanogen team for their epic libs.
  • MASSIVE MASSIVE THANKS! to r-ikfoot! If not for you I wouldn't have gotten beat's working back again. And of course Alastor89 for guiding me to the right path. Kindly go over to his thread and show him some love.
  • hidato_aori partnership with Noozy + EIZO Labs
  • osm0sis for writing the noob-proof installer and revert in the newer releases to make it safer and easier for everyone, as well as
  • completely universal.
  • Bewinxed & osm0sis for organizing this post for me.
  • And of course, Massive thanks to the community for their feedback, appreciation to a massive audiophile (me) and to those involved in the project to make GNexus an amazing smartphone among the rest. Thanks to everyone who supports this project.[/I]

I know alot of people are scared about bootloops with the N4, but I've had 2 labrats so far to test these builds, and they worked out fine. Here's the result from a good friend and tester.

@heat361 Limitations on what basis? The tab is one story :P But being a phone I would need to tweak it better for such and better, What limitations did you have in mind? and yeah, NexusLouder turning it into a Nexus Project :P
