Hey guys ! I have found TWO different mods to increase the volume on custom roms. *I do not know if this will work on stock, as i do not know if stock has mixer_paths.xml in system/etc

REQUIREMENTS

Must have a file named mixer_paths.xml
A file manager and an XML editor. I use ES File Manager, as it is a file manager with a built in Editor.
ROOTED Phone

MOD 1

Mod 1 is for roms that have ' RX1 Digital Volume and RX2 Digital Volume ' in the headphones section.

What To Do:
1. Go to /system/etc and open mixer_paths.xml
2. Scroll down to the headphones section and look for the lines: RX1 Digital Volume and RX2 Digital Volume
3. Flashable ZIP coming soon

MOD 2

Mod 2 is for roms that do NOT have RX1 Digital Volume or RX2 Digital Volume in the headphones section

What To Do:
1. Go to /system/etc and open mixer_paths.xml
2. Scroll down to the headphones section
3. If you see RX1 Digital Volume and RX2 Digital Volume, please follow mod 1
4. Flashable ZIP coming soon
