ROM: Haykuro 6.0
Issue: a2dp audio skips due to location of phone... or so it seemed. The audio would skip if the phone was placed across my body from the antenna or in a pocket.
Resolution: I began researching the bluez stack and found several places in the code that alluded to the hfp and a2dp being intertwined. This lead me to remember that android also attempts to switch between the hfp and a2dp for incoming calls.
I found that my headset was connected by default with both profiles active (not one at a time).
Thus after several test i found that disabling the hfp will eliminate the skipping.
Explanation: My best analysis is that the phone is keeping both profiles open at the expense of splitting the channel. Thus when the phone has gsm related events (incoming calls, tower hopping, background edge data) it is tying up the hfp by error thus causing a2dp to get reduced resources, low signal strength, and possibly packet collisions. Try for yourself. The skipping instantly stopped for me. Let me know how it goes for you! Thanks to all the devs for these great roms and info.
