- Samsung Galaxy Nexus GSM i9250 (maguro)
- HifiMeDiy Sabre USB DAC
- USB OTG cable
- Nightly (2013-05-31) CyanogenMod 10.1
- GLADOS Kernel v2.3 (flashed it on top of CM in attempt to make USB DAC work)
It doesn't work :) The DAC itself is recognized and after installing GLADOS Kernel and insmod'ing a couple of usb-audio related modules it is also listed as a soundcard, but audio is not routed through the DAC.
Before installing GLADOS kernel, with stock CM 10.1, I've also tried USB Audio Tester app and.. it worked, audio was successfully routed through the DAC, so the DAC itself works and gets enough power from the phone.
After days of researching and Google'ing I've started to believe that it's a CyanogenMod related issue (found reports that USB DACs work on AOSP ROMs, but not CM). I've also found this, which, I think, might be related:
But before me trying AOSP ROM or patching my CM with the patch above, I decided to post here, so maybe I am not the only one, who confronted this problem and someone could shed some light on the CM USB Audio issue :)
Lastly, some debug info:
1) Installed latest nightly CM.
2) Installed GLADOS v2.3
