With this thread I want to present to you a cool mod I created, nicely packed inside of a Magisk module.
This module enables PseudoStereo on our Le Max 2, effectively enabling the earpiece to output media audio alongside the main speaker.
Since the speakers are not positioned left and right, and do not have the same output volume, a true stereo effect cannot be achieved, hence both speakers put out both L and R channels simultaneously.
Unfortunately, the Le Max 2's earpiece speaker isn't that loud, so the effect is *really* subtle, even though it becomes a little more noticeable the higher the volume is.
I could increase earpiece gain, but that would distort the sound and probably wouldn't be healthy for the speaker itself (you can do it yourself if you want, but I don't recommend it).
I thought I would make this since I found some people around searching, like me, for a mod of this kind.
The module replaces a file inside the vendor partition, hence it has been tested by me on the following Treble ROMs: AOSP Extended, AICP, AOSiP and RevengeOS.
Does it work on non-treble ROMs? Probably not, at least for now, but you can always try.
Not working on stock ROM, neither AOSP Extended with EUI-Audio zip flashed. Working on it!
This mod can work in conjunction with other audio mods (Arise, Viper, Dolby), provided you install it first, before installing them. (Thanks to @lucian1983 for testing this)
- v1.2 - Fixed a problem where no sound would come out from the earpiece when an audio message was being played through it; - Default volume is now 92, earpiece sounds a bit louder; - Added a new zip file (namely HighVolume) which raises default volume to 100 (WARNING: could distort, especially with bass-heavy music). - v1.1 - Fixed a problem where the earpiece would keep outputting media audio even if headphones are connected. - v1 - Initial release
