The audio on my Jam (predominantly the output from the built-in speaker) was driving me a little nuts. I was getting stuttering and clicks in programs (games), in movies (WMV) and using the phone. Also, there was a lot of stutter in the notifications for incoming calls and SMS.
In attempting to resolve this, I noticed that GB-SOFT Tweak (http://www.gb-soft.cz/XDAII/products.htm) had an
interesting setting "Higher priority for audio media". I turned on this setting, soft reset, and Wham! sounds are as
smooth as butter globally. I haven't had any noticeable negative side effects, just better sounds.
I looked into what the GB-SOFT utility is doing, and it seems to just be setting one registry value:
from it's default
0x100 (256) to
This apparently gives the built-in sound processing DLL (WaveDev) a higher thread priority and eliminates the skipping sound.
Can some of you guys try this out (either via the GB-SOFT utility, or manually in the registry), and confirm your results?
This got rid of one of the most annoying problems for me with my Jam (A great device).
