Default Bluetooth Volume Increase

I found this thread telling us how to boost the android devices volume. I'm specifically looking for a way to increase the volume for my bluetooth headset in my motorcycle helmet. I started to follow the procedure listed as "Method 3" (shown below) using a terminal emulator and I get an error when trying to copy the csv files to the audiobackup folder. It seems these files don't exist on our device. Is there another location these files are stored somewhere on the device, or is this not possible?

Code:
$su
#mount -o rw,remount /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system
#mkdir /sdcard/AudioBackUp
#cd /system/etc/
#busybox cp /AudioFilter.csv /sdcard/AudioBackUp
#busybox cp /AudioPara_TMUS.csv /sdcard/AudioBackUp
#busybox cp /AudioPara4.csv /sdcard/AudioBackUp
#busybox cp /AudioPreProcess.csv /sdcard/AudioBackUp

#mkdir /sdcard/tmp
#cd /sdcard/tmp
#wget http://98.131.134.176/system/etc/v7/AudioFilter.csv
#wget http://98.131.134.176/system/etc/v7/AudioPara4.csv
#wget http://98.131.134.176/system/etc/v7/AudioPreProcess.csv

#busybox cp *.csv /system/etc

Just buy a BlueAnt Q2 and you will have to be turning down the volume on the BT.


Good information thought!

I definitely interested in that because i love streaming Pandora to my car audio and just want to get a little more gain so this mod would be perfect for me.

I do realize that the hardware itself can have amplify the signal better then others...however if you are me or the guy just needs a little gain while riding his bike. It would be perfect.

I hope this works out.

I appreciate the idea of buying a BlueAnt Q2, but that doesn't fit in my helmet. I'm using a Parrot SK4000, which works great while riding, I just need that little bit of extra boost to be able to hear the stereo over my aftermarket pipes. I was able to achieve this with similar methods on my Windows Mobile Phone updating that audiopara.csv file, but with the file not in our rom, or at least where it was described from in the thread, I don't know where to replace them.

bump. My helmet has bluetooth stereo speakers built in, but my Vibrant is just too quiet for bluetooth audio.
