[MOD] Improved headphones volume (for any ROM) - now with Extreme version!
Here's my little contribution to Vision android development.
On most ROMs, the headphones volume is too low and often you'd like to make it even louder.
Luckily for us, HTC Ace uses the same amplifier IC as Vision, and if you replace the amplifier config with the one from Ace, the sound gets a lot louder.
So here's two versions of the file:
First one is just an Ace configuration prepared for Vision (thanks kusuriurikun
for this), located here
Second one is an "Extreme
" version which improves volume level even more, but may distort sound when set to full volume (i.e. 15/15). It's located here
Yes, it's possible to make the sound even louder, but it will result in a VERY distorted sound.
1. Download the desired version of the file.
2. If you've chosen an "Extreme" version, rename the file to "AdieHWCodec.csv" (i.e. remove the "_Extreme" from the file name).
3. Put the file to /system/etc folder, and ensure that it has "rw-r--r--" permissions. Use any file explorer that allows root access, or ADB.
4. Reboot your phone.
Don't forget that loud music can seriously damage your hearing!
To restore the original sound configuration, download this file
and put it to /system/etc.
This works on any ROM (or at least it should), I've tested Virtuous Affinity and Andromadus.
If you want to use this patch in your ROM, you're welcome to do so, but please don't forget to credit me in your thread. Thank you.
