It's a real annoying problem by making calls with plugged in car radio or headset.

It was recently posted in the general section that if you edit /system/build.prop from "media.a1026.enableA1026=1" to "media.a1026.enableA1026=0" it should disable the noice cancelling mic. I have not tried it myself yet but it should work. You need to re-edit the file if you want to re-enable the mic.

Thank you very very much.
This works!!

Now I can place calls in my car, plugged in to the AUX Jack and others can hear what I say.

I haven't found it yet in the forum...

Hi, How exactly do you do that? I am using a Samsung Galaxy S. Please help.

Your phone must be rooted.
Open root explorer, navigate to /system/

Mount your System r/w and open the build.prop with a long press and choose "open in text editor"

Then scroll to the correct line, delete the "1" and change it to an "0".
Then save and exit and don't forget to reboot your phone.

I have an Android G1 devphone in my possession and the /system/build.prop doesn't contain that string.

Any ideas on turning off the noise canceling mic?

Thanks!

G1 doesn't have such mic, I believe.

Oh really? It's the best hypothesis that I've got.

I'm trying to make an app that is a dumb microphone that records all background noise (to be processed later) and the phone seems to ignore anything that isn't my voice. Even when I blast music and stick the phone next to the speaker, the phone records the music in very very low volume. Same thing happens if I try the Voice Search app (can tell volume based on the amplitude graph shown) and if I record video. All audio but voice is either ignored or hush hush in videos.

I can only think that it is a noise canceling mic destroying the background noise.

Any ideas?
