[BOUNTY] Enable USB Dock Audio out with Call Routing for CM10/AOKP - Currently $711.00
If you want to put money into the pot, just let me know and I'll add your name/amount to this thread. You hold onto your money until it's time to donate to the dev(s).

Why we want this:

--Car Stereo buffs like to dock our phones and use the better sounding USB audio out to our car stereos.
--Home sound buffs would like to be able to do the same.

FACT #1: When working properly, the USB audio sounds WAY better/cleaner than Bluetooth.

FACT #2: CyanogenMod/AOKP may never get the APT-X codec for HD quality bluetooth. And Bluetooth is occasionally flakey anyways (for different users).

What is needed is for a Dev to enable audio output to external speakers when docked. And for the call audio to be re-directed to external also. And for the call audio ringing to be able to start at low volume and ramp up from there, so it doesn't blast anyone's ears out.


One Dev who has already accomplished part of what we want (but for a different phone):
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1473201


I was contacted recently by the iBolt car dock engineers. This is something they would like to get going also. So if you're a dev and want to tap into their resources, I can give you their contact info. Just to clarify, they did not request that I put up this thread. This is all my own doing.

I use the iBolt Dock:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...ighlight=ibolt

And I use Car Home Ultra which works fantastic as a dock app:

If you don't care about USB audio out when docked, then please don't post in this thread. I'd like to keep it clean for just the folks who care about USB audio.

Thumbs up
Right on, thanks guys.
The more people who show interest in this, the more a CyanogenMOD or AOKP or other dev may look into it for us.

Seems kinda crazy that it's this difficult.

What about galaxy sound redirector? Does it do anything on our phones? Has anyone tried editing libaudio as the author of this app recommends?

Per the webpage you linked to:

Quote:

*** Call Audio redirection is not possible.
Samsung does not provide a device configuration that has both the dock and a microphone enabled.

*** Dock not working with CM

Please have the CM dev supporting your model verify the correct mapping exists between the ROM audio device and the kernel audio path (commonly set in libaudio).

Example: DEVICE_OUT_ANLG_DOCK_HEADSET in ROM should map to the path PLAYBACK_EXTRA_DOCK in the kernel.


That is part of the way to what we would love to have!
