I use my phone almost daily to listen to music when biking to work, and i really hated the low volume, even with In-Ear headphones!! i could still hear cars and things....
So... i did some searching, and this first solution was posted on the german forum for P6
if this bricks your phone, i'm not responsible

Method One:
using a ROOT BROWSER delete the following folder and all its contents

Quote:

/system/etc/audio/codec

BEFORE doing this please backup the folder first.

IMPORTANT
after doing this, i noticed that sound coming out of headphones is really good "louder" but i also noticed that sound coming out of the speaker is not so crisp, to be honest i never listen to music through the back speaker, it's up to you guys to test it and give some feedback.

Method Two: not tested by me

Using a ROOT BROWSER open this file in your phone with a text editor
Quote:

cust/channel/weurope/prop/local.prop

Look for line
Quote:

ro.config.hw.security_volume=11

and change it to
Quote:

ro.config.hw.security_volume=#

Unhappy head phone volume
Hi!
I want to know if there is a way we can check balance setting for head phone volume.
My right channel volume is low and base is also low.
I have tried different head phones to rule out headphone issue.
thanks

Method Two is 100% working, with some changes: in /cust/channel, you have to find the local.prop which contains your CustCVersion. If you don't know it, yuo can easily find it in Settings -> About phone -> Custom Version. For example my CustC is 185, which means I had to edit /cust/channel/neeurope/prop/local.prop. In local.prop, don't change ro.config.hw.security_volume from 11 to #, you have to write a "#" before two lines: ro.config.ce_authenticate=1, and ro.config.hw.security_volume=11, so the file should look like:

# DTS2012112701533 shifengbing 20121219 delete
ro.config.hw.BH_defaultlanguage=true
# DTS2012112610240 mashangrong 20121203 begin
ro.product.Certification=true
# DTS2012112610240 mashangrong 20121203 end
persist.telephony.mpdn=false
# /*<DTS2012112007884 chenzhong KF65276 20121120 begin */
ro.config.hw_ReplaceSr=true
# /*DTS2012112007884 chenzhong KF65276 20121120 end> */
#ro.config.ce_authenticate=1
ro.config.hw.security_enabled=true
#ro.config.hw.security_volume=11
ro.config.hw_opta=185
ro.config.hw_optb=999
ro.product.CustCVersion=C185

ro.product.CustDVersion=D221

Does anyone know what /cust/channel/ I should edit if my CustC is C113 ?

Thanks much

In channel folder ther eis several other folders.

you have to check each build.prop. at the end of each build.prop, you could see the custC number.
You just have to found wich one it is. for sure it is not weurope
