Thanks.

If the device is rooted and has custom recovery, try this:

https://www.xda-developers.com/how-t...e-slider-root/

You can also use root explorer to browse to the file that handles the devices audio input/output/volume parameters(what it is called and where it is located in your system partition is/can be different from one device brand or android version to another), then open that file in a note editor and change the values manually then save the file and reboot. Start with very small changes, then increase as needed, this way you get an understanding of how much increase gets how much result without going too far and damaging your hardware.

my tablet isn't rooted. And if I'm correct, the manufacturers don't like you rooting their devices. As they will probably not accept a return for any sort of fault if they find your device has been rooted. I just don't think i should risk rooting it. From one thing it mentions, it looks like it it is difficult getting apps that work with it without me having to root it. As the speaker has a 3.5mm input, i may just have to stick with that. Given how expensive some bluetooth speakers can get, if by default you only have 14/15 steps for the volume, that is pretty poor. I'm wondering what it was about my old tablets that allowed me to use bluetooth with this speaker and use the volume on the tablet and speaker separately. It seems that higher end tablets and phones add this feature that basically restricts your volume options. Quite frustrating. I can see the big advantage in that you can leave your speaker out of reach and control the volume on the tablet, but you can't do it precisely at all. At least some video players (BS player in my case) Have an option for the volume to be from 1 to 100% going up 1% each step.

Thanks for the response, but I would rather not do anything that involves rooting the device.

It's the way Android works now. Your older tablets were on earlier versions. Starting with Android 7.0/Nougat, the volume controls are merged into one.

It is very easy to undo any changes that made and then remove root, then it is just like new and no one can tell the device was ever rooted, meaning, you still have your warranty.

But, to each his own.

Famous last words that apply to many, but not all, devices and rooting methodologies. Experience and discipline of the human operator also comes into play. Finally, it is fairly easy to detect a previously rooted device unless OEM certified stock is meticulously restored. That said, most warranty claims never get that far as it's usually a quick evaluation by an entry level tech/sales rep that determines eligibility.

Hi everybody,
Probably a simple question but I can't seem to fin the answer:
Going to mount my Lenovo TAB 2 A7-10F in my car, it will be enclosed so I will not have access to the keys so I need it to turn itself on and off when power is applied.
For the power off it should be easy once rooted with apps like tasker or similar, but for the power on, that seems so easy for other devices, I'm struggling to find the solution, I've seen that in other devices you access a menu holding power and volume and set it on there but in this the only menu I've been able to access with volume UP and power buttons is in chinese and (thanks to google translate) seems to be only to perform some testing.
Does anyone know what I can do?
Tanks in advance

1) Restore a nandroid backup of stock ROM if you have one or can get one from another member thst has the same device. If you use a nandroid backup that was pulled from someone else's device, they will need to make sure their backup does not contain any of their personal data or their IMEI to avoid flashing their IMEI on your device.

2) If there is a flashable zip that has been created from the stock firmware for your device, you can flash that via TWRP.

There are other, considerably more tricky methods for advanced users, but I suggest using one of the two methods I described above if one of them is available to you.
