Default UPDATED - Audiopara.csv for 3.XX ROM, now with cab install

THIS IS FOR THE 3.XX GPS ROMS ONLY.

SEE UPDATE BELOW


This will not work with the older 2.XX ROMs, the files are different between the ROMs and using the wrong one may make your phone SILENT.

This file is designed to increase the volume of the phone. It increases the ear piece speaker, speakerphone speaker, and headphone/handsfree speaker levels.

The ear piece and speakerphone speakers start at the factory Sprint level for low, but get louder in greater steps. The loudest was near the edge of distortion when I called my voicemail.

The headphone/handsfree level has been increased by about 15%, no where near as much as the first 2, but its headphones, so I'm not jacking it up that much.



To install....

1. Download audiopara.csv.txt
2. Rename to audiopara.csv (meaning you get rid of the .txt part)
3. Backup audiopara.csv from your Windows directory of your phone.
4. Copy into the Windows directory of your phone, overwriting the original.
5. Soft reset. Yes you need to soft reset.



Disclaimer : I am not responsible if you break your phone or go deaf. This is not a hard thing to do, read the directions twice. Also be careful when using initially as the volume is louder than it was when you got the phone.

Anyone may feel free to use this file in a custom ROM or whatever, jsut put my name in there, if you would.

Thanks to mswlogo for figuring out how to do this in the older ROMs.

Glad I could finally give back to the community that has helped me out so much. Enjoy.

FILE: http://www.scrufdog.com/AudioPara.csv.txt Right Click, Save Target As...

If someone wants to do a mirror thing go for it.

UPDATED

UPDATE: NOW WITH CAB FILE
I've also added the original since people arent backing up.


Here's the new and improved way to install. This zip file has my original .csv file in it AND now comes with a .cab file for easy install, without overwriting and copying and such.

Instructions are the same for the csv file.

Instructions for the cab are fairly simple.

1. Copy cab to phone.
2. Run cab, install to Device.
3. When done, soft reset.
4. Enjoy loudness.

Enjoy.

Let me know if there are problems.

the only downside i can think of would be that your speaker will only last 5 years instead of 6, and thats only if you run the things at full blast ALLLLLL day long, and even then, I stopped at what my phone was playing distorted, and distortion is what kills speakers, not just loudness.

This file has been modded and used in the past, and no problems ever arose. It's the first thing I do when I reflash a ROM.

Talking Great Job!

I didn't have the old hack (moderate-fix-low-volume-issues-audiopara.csv_coarse_ear_extended_speaker.txt) installed very long before the 3.16 update came out, but with this new one, it seems louder. With the old hack, I still had to put the volume at max and strain slightly to hear. With this one, I have the volume at the notch below max and is plenty loud. In fact, I can hold the phone away from my ear and still hear fine. Nice work!

Default Thanks!

Cuddo's man, I did the rom upgrade and had no sound at all. I was running the previous coarse tweaked audiopara and it sure didn't work with the new Rom. I wonder what else does not work. Now if I can just get rid of the one unresolved item under activesync notes I'd be happy.....
