Finally, thanks to my mod is exclusive solved the audio problem found on all ( or most) Nexus 5 ! (LINK BUG - see also comments to the news - italian)
Significantly increased the sound of the speaker , but above all also fixed the microphone input/output and speaker of the call !
In other words both you and your recipient feel ALWAYS sound loud and clean like never before. The phrase " can not hear you " ( typical of someone who has a Nexus 5 ) will be only a distant memory for you .

For the following guide takes root permissions and a file manager that allows to get into the system folder (for example Root Explorer can be downloaded from playstore ) .

1) Download the file from here Best Audio Mod Nexus 5 by fosseperme V2.xml and rename mixer_paths.xml
2) Go through root explorer ( or similar) in the system folder sytem / etc and replace the file with the old one ( after making a backup of the original file of course ) . If you root explorer problems in replacing click on the top of Mount R / W ( it displays a Mount R / O) and try again.
3) Set the correct permissions for the mixer_paths.xml file before rebooting as rw-r--r-- (important to avoid bootlop)
4) Restart the phone and try to call someone! You will see the results immediately !

NEW : Flashable Zip from recovery (Many thanks to Drummerjed)


Changelog V2

Increase audio recording (hear most of your audio / video recorded)

Changelog V1

Increase audio speaker, audio headphone and microphone audio input / output (better hear the other party on a call and he will listen to you better)

Hi,

You should add to the OP to set the correct permissions for the mixer_paths.xml file before rebooting as rw-r--r--:




No bootloop on Purity with the correct permissions, without the correct permissions you end in a bootloop...

Hi,

Yes, but it seems that the mod here from fosseperme solves/improves the sound for call like he claims (not in the other thread where is nothing about in call sound) even if I never have not noticed any problem with sound in call...

The volume in speaker is the same as the other thread, right.

Otherwise the only thing I noticed is the cause of the bootloop...

the problem in call is very evident (too much) in the call recording

but this mod doesn't fix it.

Hi,

Ok, since I don't use call recording and since the OP didn't mentioned it was to "try" to fix the issue with in call recording...:

So my answer about the fact that I never had a problem with in call sound (at least for me but for the OP it seems a typical problem )...
