I answered this in another thread, I thought it might be useful to have it in here as well.

I do not know. I doubt it. But I personally just left at stock levels.

It works, but it is not permanent and reverts following a restart.

This mod really isn't needed. Haven't you heard how loud stock volume is?? it's pretty dam loud, really loud and clear with NO distortion. Samsung has audio booster libraries that are the reason for it, why go any louder.

im a pretty heavy sleeper, and use the phones alarm. my old g1's alarm worked well with the meltus' louder hack. the stock vibrant is a little lower and doesnt work as well. thanks for this post, bchalk!

Is there anyway to make the volume louder in the ear speaker? I find that speaker to actually be a tad too quiet.
