[MOD] Volume boost for s4 with Kitkat 4.4.2
old Volume boost by boterkaaseneieren mods
is locked and doesn't work on kitkat so i had a look at the new soundfiles and i created new sound boost mod.
1 easy way :
- download & extract sound mod of your choice to your phone
- Open a filebrowser that supports root
- Go to \system\etc\snd_soc_msm\
- IMPORTANT : copy to a safe place or rename snd_soc_msm_2x_Fusion3 before replacing with the modded file so you can restore if my default settings file don't work for you. If there exist no such file, then this mod is not for your phone
- Set permissions to rw-r-r-
You now should have louder volume
2 Do it yourself way
i will explain for speaker, all the rest goes the same way
1 Copy snd_soc_msm_2x_Fusion3 from the directory system/etc/snd_soc_msm/ to your pc and open it with notepad++
2 search for 'speaker' (it is somewhere in the middle of the file) and after that look a little lower for 'digital volume' -> it will probably be somewhere around 65% by default
3 Change from (+/-) 65 to 70-75% depending on your wish to have louder or super loud speakers (don't go over 75% as it is very loud and might break your speaker !)
It is the same way for every sound option, search for the digital volume for the option you want to change (these parameters are all somewhere in the middle of the file) and change from 70 up to 75%
4 Once you have saved you must copy these files back to your phone and set permissions to rw-r-r (easy done in root explorer) and reboot to see if it worked.
Don't put at maximum volume with the Super Soundboost if your music is recorded loud allready, you and only you are responsible for your ears and device so use with caution
Let us know if it works on your device also (Kitkat only !)
