Arrow Asus The New PadFone Infinity (A86) aka PadFone Infinity 2 Thread

Hi,

Since I didn't find a thread for The New PadFone Infinity (A86) aka PadFone Infinity 2, decided to create this thread.
Hopefully this top device gets noticed by developers.

Audio Any MOD for audio? Low handset speaker volume?

As you might noticed, the speaker volume (notifications, ringtones, etc.) of NPFI handset is pretty low even when all volume sliders are maxed out and audio wizard is set to "Music".

I have a rooted device and installed Alsa Mixer from Play Store and tweaked the parameter "RX7 Digital Volume" from within the app. Changed default value of 85 to 100 and was pleased to get a noticeably louder speaker volume. Problem is that the value resets almost instantly and volume level gets back to its default value. Probably because Alsa Mixer installs its own audio driver (alsa amixer) which uses a separate system for assigning values and there is a protection system in place by Asus I think.

I also played with parameters in files below (residing in /system/etc/snd_soc_msm) - tweaked the RX7, RX1, RX2, etc...

snd_soc_msm_Taiko
snd_soc_apq_Taiko_DB
snd_soc_msm_Taiko_CDP
snd_soc_msm_Taiko_Fluid
snd_soc_msm_Taiko_Liquid

saved and reboot, but it didn't make a difference. So anyone has any idea to share?

P. S. As far as I know the audio engine for NPFI is designed by Wave and is called MaxxAudio, Is it possible that it has something to do with that?

Hmm nothing major...

I wonder why the New Padfone Infinity has to wait the longest to get the latest version of Android...

Default Kingoapp

Kingoapp worked ok for me for root.
I had to reboot phone and a PC after a driver install, but that's ok.

Is there a sub forum for PadFones? Would be nice to have a place for this stuff.

There are some other places for PFs.

This is not a place for advertisement for forums or products, especially for suspicious applications such as "kingo" root.
