Default [MOD] Volume+ compatibility!

Requirements
- Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0)
- HTC Device with "Beats" software
- Root Access

SHOULD WORK ON ANY HTC DEVICE WITH BEATS

On the Stock HTC One X, Volume+ does make a difference, but the amount you can boost the volume by is minimal, as are the EQ/Bass adjustments.
While messing with some system files (as you do) I noticed that on HTC devices with 'Beats' software, the 'audio_effects.conf' file (located in 'system/etc') is different from the standard ICS version and is missing a few values. I added the missing ones back in (whilst keeping all the beats stuff intact) and after a reboot, much more EQ control!
This allows you to go louder (not much louder, HTC speakers are terrible and just distort to hell, but you can distort it to your heart's content! )
Much better for the headset EQ too!

It also works alongside Beats just fine!

Instructions
Method One (ADB)
First, Back up your 'audio_effects.conf'
Code:
adb remount
adb pull system/etc/audio_effects.conf

or
Code:
adb remount
adb mv system/etc/audio_effects.conf audio_effects1.conf

Then, extract the file from the attached zip, push the file and reboot your phone
Code:
adb push /link/to/file/audio_effects.conf system/etc/
adb shell reboot
Method Two (File Manager)
Extract the file from the attached zip and put the file on your phone's SDcard
Use Root explorer (or similar) to move the file to system/etc
(backup original file first!)
Permissions might need to be set for the new file (mine's set to "rw-rw-rw-"). Incorrect permissions can cause a Force Close
Then reboot your phone

AUDIO_EFFECTS DOWNLOAD

Quote:
Few things to bear in mind:
1) Bass Boost will bug out if you turn it up too much, watch out for that
2) Volume can go up to around +14/15. Any higher any it can bug out the audio
3) Echo/Delay doesn't work on ICS
4) Volume+ WILL Force Close if installed alongside DSP Manager. Please be aware of this.
That's it, let me know if it works for you!

Enjoy

Huh, that's odd, it works fine on ARHD.
I'll have a look.

I have the ''old'' 1.8.1 on Leedroid, I set volume boost to 14 and virtual room +6, I am hearing crackling sounds before and/or after system sounds are played.
would this patch correct these?

Oops, sorry it works with HTC music player, I use poweramp, but poweramp also works if you uncheck music engine in sound settings. Then also use poweramp eq to your likings.

So the file could use some more tweaking.

Yes - anything as we know from other ports - XLOUD.hack maybe?

all of the ringtones are very low. (speaker is undersized)

If you untick 'Direct Sound' or something in the PowerAmp settings it should work fine with Volume+, DSPManager, etc.

I have a constant message "unfortunately volume+ has stopped". What I did is to rename the file in System/Etc with File Expert (first mount the volume as read/write), than copy the file from the archive in the same folder. Restart the phone and get the message above.
