Hey guys, Im semi new to android phones and hacking them. Ive been looking for a way to amplify the volume (aux out or headphones) of my galaxy s. I drive alot and so plug it into my cars headset. Ive been looking at other methods of how to do this but most require flashing voodoo and voodoo sound or something. Not knowing how/ wanting to flash my galaxy yet, is there anyway to do this without?
Your help would be appreciated.
Of cause if the only way is to flash i will look into it.

But you loose quality, it is software enhanced sound which means it distorts sooner. With voodoo its different, its taking advantage of the inbuilt hardware.. The wm8994 amp inside the phone is very powerful and capable of driving high end headphones that normally require an external amp, for some reason samsung gimped it when the released the phone.. But voodoo fixes that and gives you a much better music experience. Louder but without loss of quality.. It also has improvements for the mic as well.

I agree with St4ark. Flash either voodoo or speedmod kernal and download voodoo control app from the market. The difference is amazing.

I havent tried voodo sound, but generally speaking, If its louder it can't be better quality.
HP volume is too much on the galaxy for my hearing, I just wish it could have more volume steps like 20 or 30 instead of 15.
In the night even on the 1 volume is too much.

Audio boost app on mkt. Boosts the same way voodoo does by upping internal amp setting. Don't need to flash but do need to be rooted.

the new voodo has mic settings which audioboost doesnt so you can "finally" record at a concert with decent sound.
also if you dont want to muck with your lag stuff (vodoo kerenel) take a look at hardcord kernel.. many more options than voodoo.. i am
using it and it has back light notification support, lagfix (off by default) and voodoo latest sound support among other stuff.

Yup it changes file system to ext4 which is faster than rfs, so lag is reduced.

Also flashing it with odin is pretty easy, but be sure to read up on it before doing it because if you check the wrong box you can have problems..

Be sure you have 3 buttons mode working before you do any sort of customising though.

Thanks for the info st4rk. I appreciate it.If i were to flash though, id use the reboot method, cause i dont have a windows computer in my house. (Only linux and freebsd). Which means id have to install the 3 button restart. Just a question though, do i have to uninstall my lag fixes before flashing? and does voodoo use the 512 meg of ram? What quadrant standard score should i expect? im running at like 1500 atm. thanks for the help
