Is there any way to disable the aux jack? I think there is some debris permanently stuck in it and am wondering if there is any method to disable the aux jack. My phone is stuck in 'headphone' mode and is creating a lot of problems. Mic doesn't work unless I put it on speaker mode.

Thanks for your time.

Have you tried using a compressed air duster to clean the jack out?

Yeah, I have. Might just tear the whole body apart and see what's wrong with it.

Don't do it unless you are very very skilled. Try googling for "ifixit htc m8" and see how hard it is to tear open this guy. Yours sounds like an issue eligible for warranty.

Download roundabout from play store. It can override the head phone Jack.
