When i left all i9500 community. Sound quality was very bad (more than bad maybe). Thats why i left, but now i can see light end of the road.. Microphone and speaker stuff in-call looks like almost fixed :) My friends can hear me clearly anyway one thing left (sometimes glitchy) low sound :) i learned some new skills while i was absent here .. So i can try fixing some stuff right now :)
Maybe we will get full working ROM soon. who knows :o :cyclops: :good:
Yeah Video Recording doesn't work for now...
My Turkish Friend shared an information with me :)
His name is "Emre Akturk"
WE FINALLY FOUND A FIX FOR SOUND PROBLEMS
That Information fixes SOUND QUALITY IN-CALL AND ALL OTHER SOUND RELATED PROBLEMS :)
I TESTED IT WORKS :)
BUT WE STILL NEED TESTERS :)
PLEASE TEST AND REPORT IF IT FIXES :)
I CALLED MY FRIENDS AND THEY SAID "YEAH SOUND IS GOOD NOW :)"
These 2 apps fixes sound :)
Viper4Android App (The main app which changes sound drivers)(without adaway app app cant gain su permission i dont know why but after installing adaway and applying adblocking,suddenly app gains su permission. It's weird or magic don't know :) )
And AdAway app (It probably changes hosts file and you can install drivers after that :) It's weird but it works :) )
Viper4Android app is very popular around these days but i didnt think it can fix the sound :)
Anyway My Turkish Friend found that way :)
All credits goes to Emre Akturk for finding a way to fix the sound temporarily.(Maybe I can include library files from viper4android into device tree in the future with proper credits ( Viper4Android Credits Rules) .So we will get permanent fix after that )
Links Below :
