Default Microphone capture very low voice during calls

Hi there!

I have and HTC One S [S4] with viper 2.2.0 and briked kernel ( version 170700 ) and I have open recovery twrp 2.6.3 ( also I'm still S-ON ), I have recently changed the battery of the phone with a 2100 mah battery ( from the One x+ ). [B]I don't know if this started immediadly after that I changed the battery [/B ]anyway I have been reported that when I make calls people from the other side hear me with a very very low voice. Never had a problem like this. I don't think that I have made some hardware damege during battery changing as I have just removed the 2 mini covers up and down without removing any hardware component ( just the 2 mini covers and the big alluminium case ). I have even try to wipe all data, cache davilk and external memory and then I have flashed the ROM again but nothing. Any idea??

I could try to revert to stock but actually I don't even remember how to do that! It is sufficient to flash the RUU ?

Yes, an RUU will get you back to stock.

I would try updating my recovery to version 2.7.1.0 to se if I can fix this, I have installed the TWRP Manger from playstore but it ask me to choose the name of the device between Ville and Ville_U I have selected the first. Then when I tap flash it ask me if this is the correct adress to flash the recovery:

/dev/block/mmcblk0p22 && reboot ...is that correct?

I have successfully updated the recovery but the low volume captured by the microphone it's still there. I think that I'll try to flash the RUU to go back to stock.
At the moment I have this situation:

1) S-ON
2) SuperCid
3) TWRP 2.7.1.0 recovery
4) Hboot 2.15

Am I safe to flash the RUU directly?

I would recommend going s-off first. You won't lose it during RUU, and it makes life much easier in troubleshooting.
