Thanks hicked for your work on this mod.

I followed the instructions but used Root Browser instead of ES Browser. (I don't know if this made a difference)

After the restart audio failed to work on the internal speaker or on earphones. It gave me an "audio stopped" mesaage

I accessed mixer_paths.XML through Root Browser and changed the permissions to the same as in my attached image. After another reboot audio worked again, and was noticibly louder through the earphones. Also tested on my Bluetooth speaker and on my Bluetooth headphones and they seem to be louder now too.

Great work!

Thanks for this.
But I can't install it.
I am having android 4.4.4. My phone is rooted but I dont remember if I installed custom rom o not lol.
I love my z1 compact and it still working perfectly, I bought it in 2014 in Germany, I rooted it my self and never updated it for fear of bugs and problems with the battery.
My only problem whit the phone was that the sound is quite low, so I would like to try this. But I cant paste the file into the system/etc.
I think its because I dont have the privilege to rewrite the files in the system folder. I can activate the root explorer in the Es file explorer but wont let me change the r/w mount. When I check the read and write option nothing happens. Press accept, open it again and its still on read option... I tried with other explorers too without success.
Could it be because the super su isnt updated? When I open super su a message appears saying that the binaries arent updated. When I try to update it fails...
Thanks for your time and advice.
