In my opinion beats audio really hurts the audio quality with good players like poweramp. therefore I made this little zip to help people remove it. It should work on any rom, but I take no responsibility if it doesn't (please tell me though so I can try to fix it).

To install: copy zip to root of sdcard, make a backup in CWM (recommended), then just chose zip from sdcard and flash it.

all it does is delete all the beats files and add back a few in an unmodified form.

file is attached

Nice work! We need more uninstall scripts in my opinion. So its not like all or nothing when installing add-ons and themes. Even though I don't have Beats I thank you.
:thumbup:

The End.

thanks, I wish our roms had more options for these things upon install or something, or at least more settings like cm7 has. this was super easy to make, it just took forever since I had to type the name of every file and make sure I didn't need to replace it.

This is great. I am pretty sure I saw a couple Beats removers floating around but I feel much better using one by lkrasner. Thanks man! Keep doing stuff like this!

When the removal utility was available for a particular phone, A2 in this case, why use this on any other phone

Good job Ikrasner!

Sorry man, I hope you took a backup. This was intended for the A2. The removal part will work on any, but there are some files that are device specific to be added back.
