So i can try fixing some stuff right now :)

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 :

Viper4Android (to fix sound :) )

AdAway (to fix root problem with magic lol)

PLEASE TEST AND WRITE FEEDBACK MATES :)

Other Credits goes to viper4android developers : here is main link of viper4android app


INSTRUCTIONS :
1- Install Adaway and viper4android apks to your device :)
2- Open adaway and allow root access :) and touch "download files and apply ad blocking" button.
And then reboot system
3- open viper4android and allow for installing drivers :)
4- allow root access
5- and then reboot :)
6- open viper4android app
7- Touch to activate sound fix(in all tabs headset,phonespeaker,bluetooth device) --Enable (v4a-SpeakerFX is powered on) --
8- Reboot Your Phone
9- Make Calls With Somebody :)
