I did try that fix. It didn't remove the hiss entirely for me. Maybe removed 50% of the hiss, but I've heard of it working 100% for a lot of people. I've been using the ELT > Audio Loopback test from the hidden menu. It removes the hiss by about 99%. Only annoying thing is that I need to do it on every reboot which is why I wanted a more permanent fix.

Seems like my restore has caused a bootloop. Everything went accordingly, except the installation of SuperSU afterwards. Kept saying it failed to copy to the system folder despite system being mounted. The bootloop started when trying to boot into system after restore + failed SuperSU installation.

Edit: Fixed the SuperSU failure to install by wiping dalvik etc. but bootloop persists. I somewhat assume this is because the restore function doesn't work when the current ROM is different from the ROM the backup was made with? The backup was made with D802 20b firmware and the current ROM which is the one I flashed was the D802 20d firmware. Am I on to something?

A backup restore should always work whether different versions or not, are you able to get into download mode?have you tried kdz to stock?

I just fixed it by going into recovery and flashing the D802 20d firmware again. It'll do for now. Honestly don't know why the restore from backup didn't work. Either the backup was corrupt or I've done something wrong.
I did restore my apps (so far) flawlessly and the rom does appear to perform similarly to my older firmware. Plus there's added features such as knock code so it's not all bad.

I do have a D802 20d kdz firmware available on my computer in case I want to go completely stock and/or start over. But I'll give this one a try over the next few days and see whether I'll keep this.
