Hello Everyone,
I hope you all are great...

PLEASE GIVE ME YOUR FEEDBACKS IN ORDER TO IMPROVE THE MODULE...

Don't Forget to say THANKS
and
if you're very happy, please consider Donating to Support me, it means a lot even if it was little...

EXYNOS: I have made SoundMod Magisk Module by Modifying my own mixers_path.xml & mixers_gain.xml
SNAPDRAGON: I have made SoundMod Magisk Module Flashable TWRP (You can use Flashfire) by Modifying original mixer_paths_tavil.xml
provided by louforgiveno
He has Samsung Note 8 T-Mobile

Outdated
Download below:


Make your own soundmod by following my guide here:
dualspeaker soundmod tutorial guide - all devices - root only

!!! ALWAYS MAKE BACKUP OF YOUR FILES BEFORE REPLACING THEM !!!
If you didn't, no worries I have Attached my Backup (EXYNOS & SNAPDRAGON)...
You can Use it with MAGISK (Snapdragon device, doesn't have Magisk)
or
You can Use it with TWRP
or
Just extract the MANUAL zip and get the mixers and place them in your system/etc & set permissions to 644 (rw-r--r--) ...
reboot...
Re-Tested on my Note 8 Exynos...
Still Works Great...

Let me know if you face any issues...
SNAPDRAGON MOD:
I Thank you for very much your help user louforgiveno ...
--- TWRP file is flashable by flashfire reported by users...
--- TWRP Bluetooth & Headphones (the file name having "_BT_HD_" ) Gain Modified by member rickberg, revised by me...

EXYNOS MOD:
--- Merged All Modules and produced one, DIY for volume change...
--- Top Speaker as it is, created TWRP as well...
- disabled bottom speaker upon request from Motawa88...

IMPORTANT NOTICE:
The MOD can be used with any Equalizers, but wouldn't recommend it...
If using Equalizer will cause crackles and noise, stop using and report back please so I could decrease the default volume...

The pics will show the "main" items to change for volume increase (bass and treble settings to your liking....just be sure to enable the tabs of the items you want to hear changes to)
And lastly remember each sound output will have its own config page ie headset, bluetooth etc.

DIY Volume Adjust
( You can only adjust the earpiece due to the hardware, you can not adjust it from the mixer)
(I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE):
  • SNAPDRAGON: to Adjust:
    Code:
        <path name="earpiece">
    ......................................
    	<!--default is 84, safe up-to 95, can reach to 120, DANGEROUS above 95-->
    	<ctl name="RX0 Mix Digital Volume" value="90" />
    ......................................
        </path>
  • EXYNOS: to Adjust:
    Code:
    <!--default is 30, safe up-to 40, can reach to 60, DANGEROUS above 40-->
    <!--XDA-Dante63: Defining Ear start-->
       <ctl name="HPOUT3L Input 1 Volume" value="33" />
       <ctl name="HPOUT3R Input 1 Volume" value="33" />	
    <!--XDA-Dante63: Defining Ear end-->
       <path name="gain-media-headset">
         <!--default is 107, safe up-to 120, if you hate your ears and headset, go above 120-->
    	<ctl name="HPOUT2L Impedance Volume" value="107" />
    	<ctl name="HPOUT2R Impedance Volume" value="107" />
         <!--default is 32, safe up-to 40, if you hate your ears and headset, go above 40-->
    	<ctl name="HPOUT2L Input 1 Volume" value="40" />
    	<ctl name="HPOUT2R Input 1 Volume" value="40" />
       </path>
Don't Forget to say THANKS
and
if you're very happy, please consider Donating to Support me, it means a lot even if it was little...

Again I Say Please, your Feedbacks are important for futuristic updates to improve the MOD...

Does it require root. I mean do I need to root the phone. Can it be done without root.

Magisk Requires Root Access as well writing to the path /system/etc ... even through ADB, you must type ADB root...

However It might be possible if the temp recovery still works, I can give you no guarantees that it will work but as far as I know it shouldn't trigger Knox nor void the warranty...

I will reset my phone to stock and attempt to do things with no root / custom recovery and let you know...

I shall be thankful to you if it is possible without root. Don't understand why Samsung keeps the max volume so low. Iphones have enough filling sound.

I never had crackles meaning your song might be amplified or boosted... Perhaps you're using equalizer... I could lower the volume by half... But first tell me more about the crackle... Top speaker or bottom...?

Top speaker or bottom...? Currently headphones and Bluetooth have no boost for ear safety... I could slightly boost it...

V3 will be released fixing any crackles/noise, with a slight boost of Bluetooth and headphones...
