EDIT:

Sound enhancer from the Sprint-exclusive 'Harman/Kardon HTC One M8' (link)

Download this file and follow instructions. After flashing this, and flashing the adsp firmware zip, and disabling boomsound in the customize/ACC/default.xml, everything is working fine.

FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS.

nearly..

here's the post: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...postcount=2810

it's a flashable zip which makes xml edits to enable harman sound and adds equalizer files.

I was wondering would this be safe / would it work to flash on our Verizon M8s??

I asked the guy who did it 'lyapota' and I'm waiting on a response.

in the thread he said to try this:

Yep, it works on my side. Try next steps:
1. Flash mod.
2. Reboot phone and leave him about 5 minutes.
3. Don't plug headphones.
4. Try ring sound, notifications sound.
5. Try player with speaker.
6. Try player with headphones.

I flashed this mod and I lost all my data connections. I'm on Viper 1.4.1 Btw. Selecting mobile data in settings and it removed all my data connection options other than roaming. Glad I made a nandroid before flashing this. Anyone else have this issue?

Ok so I think it's safe to say it won't work 'out of the box' for us, I believe VZW may need a slightly different XML, I'm trying to contact the dev who came up with this mod.

Thanks you two for testing this

Stoked to try this out. I'll be watching to see if we can get this on our VZW m8's. I'm sure it will happen eventually...

I see people in the ViperOneM8 thread on the HTC One M8 forums talking about an H/K firmware, enabling H/K and disabling Boomsound, and the next Viper update possibly fixing the loss of Data on VZW/UK devices after having flashed the H/K xml mod... so I mean I've only just looked a little but it sounds like there's a new FW that comes with the H/K sprint device??

check this thread, page 295 and forward: LINK

EDIT: Ah yes, here's the thread: SPRINT HK FIRMWARE/RUU

By no means should anyone flash this, but just saying, it exists. We just need this firmware or at least the working bits from it flashable on our device.. right?

I saw that too. I'm by no means a dev, but yeah i gathered that you need a. that firmware version and b. either a sprint cid or super cid.

Same here and I'm running skyfall. Lost all data but luckily I made a backup too.

I tried manually placing all the bits EXCEPT default.XML in the proper places (with proper permissions) but no dice. I did go into our stock default.XML and set Harman and Music Channel to true too.

That said, I still have data. This is on cleanrom.

So, it seems there are other bits inside the default.xml that makes it work in addition to other settings that break our data. Sometime later tonight I'll try and compare the two and see what I can come up with.
