old Volume boost by boterkaaseneieren mods is locked and doesn't work on kitkat so i had a look at the new soundfiles and i created new sound boost mod.

Howto ?
1 easy way :
----------------
- download & extract sound mod of your choice to your phone
- Open a filebrowser that supports root
- Go to \system\etc\snd_soc_msm\
- IMPORTANT : copy to a safe place or rename snd_soc_msm_2x_Fusion3 before replacing with the modded file so you can restore if my default settings file don't work for you. If there exist no such file, then this mod is not for your phone
- Set permissions to rw-r-r-
- Reboot.
You now should have louder volume

2 Do it yourself way
-------------------------

i will explain for speaker, all the rest goes the same way

1 Copy snd_soc_msm_2x_Fusion3 from the directory system/etc/snd_soc_msm/ to your pc and open it with notepad++
2 search for 'speaker' (it is somewhere in the middle of the file) and after that look a little lower for 'digital volume' -> it will probably be somewhere around 65% by default
3 Change from (+/-) 65 to 70-75% depending on your wish to have louder or super loud speakers (don't go over 75% as it is very loud and might break your speaker !)
It is the same way for every sound option, search for the digital volume for the option you want to change (these parameters are all somewhere in the middle of the file) and change from 70 up to 75%
4 Once you have saved you must copy these files back to your phone and set permissions to rw-r-r (easy done in root explorer) and reboot to see if it worked.

Don't put at maximum volume with the Super Soundboost if your music is recorded loud allready, you and only you are responsible for your ears and device so use with caution

Let us know if it works on your device also (Kitkat only !)

Credits go to eheinzeiii for showing me what to look for in the soundfiles.

This post was created to make speaker louder
Post 4 has updated files for people who want Everything (except bluetooth) louder

FOR PEOPLE WITH i9506 try this : POST 51
FOR people who can't get louder volume with any off my mods please try this : Post 57

If all goes well you should have louder volume, both in speaker and in earpiece.

Tested on my Samsung Galaxy s4 GT i9505 Probam 1.2 kitkat 4.4.2


Please Test this & let us know if it works on your device so i can update op with more working devices

Using this with omni rom, seems to be doing the trick whereas flashing the old zips crippled Google voice search and sound search.

Thanks!

Thanks for the update, I've replaced the original file aswell as updating the nightly on omni rom. Works fine for me, but I've only been able to test it on music through the speaker and a phone call through the earpiece and also speaker.

All seems to be working and nice and loud. Btw I'm using the medium loudness file, loud enough for me.

Can you or someone else test it and share toughts because i have no i9500.
If you make sure that you rename the original file to .bak in the end before replacing it with the new file there will be no problem to rename it again and revert to your original files if something goes wrong and you get no more sound. Other then that make sure you follow the other guidelines also about setting permissions and reboot after every replacement
