Hi Contrisan
How are you?
at the end, i have boght a external Dac connected to the OTG Port

Its an HIFIMEDIY SABRE ANDROID DAC (http://hifimediy.com/index.php?route...product_id=124)
its sounds incredible, and not draining the battery.
the problem its the output level.
its like stock internal dac configuration.
its there any way to edit this to boost it?

I have an Sennheiser Hd 439, and there are a nice Headphones, but only have 32 ohms and the sound its so low.

thanks you so much!

1 Copy every file from the directory in your picture to your pc and open them all with notepad++ (you can do it directly on your phone with the built in editor from root explorer but it is much more easy to find everything when working on a pc)
2 search for 'speaker' (it is somewhere in the middle of every file) and after that look a little lower for 'digital volume' -> it will probably be somewhere around 66% by default
3 Change from (+/-) 66 to 70-75% depending on your wish to have louder or super loud speakers (don't go over 75% as it is very loud and might break your speaker !)
It is the same way for every sound option, search for the digital volume for the option you want to change (these parameters are somewhere in the middle of the files) and change from (+/-) 66 into 70 up to 75%
4 Once you have saved you must copy these files back to your phone and set permissions to rw-r-r and reboot to see if it worked.
Its says spekar every where and digital volume too......... this is madness
