Thumbs up **Headphone jack audio out (jellybean) solution here** (app)

for those of us that use our phones in the car as mp3 players, or connect our phone to an aux input to our cars or other piece of equipment were surprised to see that the new JB update killed that for us.

ive mentioned it in the bugs thread and asked a dev to see if he can remedy it.

until it gets fixed by a dev or google/htc/sprint i found a free app that will fix it for us.
and it does work.

google play search "soundabout"
make sure you check off wired headset detection, and select "wired headphones" in the [media audio...] selection box.

voila, you got sound to your aux adapter or for your car now.
the only issue i see is the builtin music player doesnt let you choose EQ and the beats options is still greyed out.
so you might want to experiment with other 3rd party music players with an eq if you want better audio.

I'm on stock jb ota not rooted and audio works fine for me via headphone jack to aux port. My only problem is, when I'm plugged in my car and then turn my Bluetooth headset on, it switches my music to my ear piece. Not that big of a deal, I just unplug and replug my phone back in and it switches back.

I am on Meanrom JB currently 1.6 and have been playing audio in my car using the headphone jack since it released with no problems.

OP, I think you're having a ROM issue, not a hardware issue. Your phone can't discriminate between an aux plug and a headphone plug. Both must work.

I'm going to hope you're not directing that indirect criticism at me; I don't have an issue with the OP trying to help anyone, I'm just pointing out that I don't have that issue, I have seen no one complain about that issue, and on a software level, it is impossible for a phone to discriminate between a headphone plug and an auxiliary plug, which means if his headphones work, his aux jack must work.
