After updating firmware there's a quiet "popping" sound occasionally
It happens a couple seconds after sound stops being emitted. I think it's the sound of the speakers being turned off. I had the same exact issue with my gnex but I'm pretty sure that it happened to most if not all gnex users.
Nothing like this happened until I updated my firmware to install a GPE 4.3 rom. I guess it could be the rom itself and not the firmware, but I've tried a couple different gpe roms.
I've ran both sense and aosp-based roms before this without said problem.
I've read that some people have had this issue since they bought their phones and it's a hardware defect. Since mine happened recently I feel like it's a different problem.
