Do you need unlocked bootloader for that?

If you can have custom recovery without unlocking bootloader. The answer is no needed. Because u need to flash zip with cwmr/twrp. Try to search xda forum about that. I lost my drm key and unlocking my bootloader on the first day this phone come out the box. So i never try to find out about that. And im using doom kernel v10 now.

I started stock... the speakers were decent but just not loud enough for me
Then I bought the noise-canceling earphones and they made a world of difference

Still not satisfied I rooted, unlocked bootloader, and installed CM11

I just found it a little buggy and went back stock...

Then rooted again and installed SOUNDMOD by olokos

Bought MDR-XB90EX earbuds

Almost everything is perfect except for two things:
1) I get a crackling with Hangouts notifications (not all the time, comes randomly)
2) Call quality on the earpiece is SO quiet. Speakers sound great.
