sorry i tought it works perfectly now ... why should the listen.apk be more changed ?

If you read my previous post you will see that with latest listen apk now and again you cant select beats and you have to exit music to homescreen and go back into music to get it to work

If you use earlier version of listen apk you dont get this issue

This is what im referring to as at the moment I use earlier version of listen apk

I think there is something wrong with your ROM, v5.1 have been tested on stock and insertcoin v5.x it may have the issue you said but only first use after flash, and I haven't successfully use any v4.x on the latest 3.32Rom, can't enen boot.

So I think try clear cache and dalvik, or if you have flash other tweaks, try to revert back to original came with the Rom, mostly the framework files that causes this issue, or update firmware if you haven't.

Ok will have a play with it and see what happens

When you say first boot does it just happen once or can it come back as I have only tried on first boot and havent rebooted and tested...

I think I have narrowed down the problem

Play a song on loudspeaker
choose srs
plug in headphones
cant change to beats

go to home go back in and you can change to beats

BUT

change to srs while headphones plugged in
unplug headphones
play song
cant change to beats


So I think maybe there is a problem with switching from phones to speaker...

Also if you like I can send you the htclisten I have been using which works perfectly although I cant remember which one it is...

Video doesnt have this issue

Ok, there is issue as you said, but you can still use notification to switch to beats, I will try to fix it but not guarantee, the new version mod is totally different from the old one, I just mod it by trial and errors, there is a need to analyze the whole code, which is really a hard work for me.

Same here, whatever you can do will be much appreciated. Beats over bluetooth is the most important feature for me, so thanks for keeping that updated (ic rom)

HtcVideoPlayer.apk has to be pushed or insert it to any flashable in the path /system/app/

Mudhi could you mod the watch player too :D :D :D

thanks in advance :)

thaaaanks

Is watch player a third party player? if it is, I think it is not easy for me, moding HtcVideoPlayer.apk is actually just changing the arrays, and they are three of them, Effect Res array, Effect array and Support Effect array, with a few logic changing, other than that are beyond my knowledge.

    You can use the zip for any purpose without asking, since I take and learn from this community.

    Beats_ICS_v5.2_XE.zip
    Fix beats icon disappear from sound effect dialog when headset plug or unplug, at the same time fix the chain bugs of this bug.
    Fix unknown bug introducing by archiver 64bit 7-zip, by using default Windows 7's zip archiver.
    The fix is only modifying HtcListen.apk, and is for XE base ROM only, I didn't include for non-xe ROM, since 3.32.401.105 is out there for a long time, but in case, if you want to flash it on non-xe ROM, just use this HtcListen.apk and push it to your phone or, insert and replace it to Beats_ICS_v5.1.zip and flash.

    Please report bug if any, so that I know what to fix, thanks.

    HtcStreamPlayer.apk mod for ICS ROM base 3.32.x,

    This is a quick & dirty mod for Player launch by Htc Watch, which enables all 4 effects, tested with speaker and wired headset. The red beats icon not shown on status bar even if beats is selected. Not tested on BT yet. I may improve it when I have time to read the code, and it is not easy to analyze, as this is more complicated than HtcVideoPlayer.apk, just don't expect I could fix it.

    HtcVideoPlayer.apk mod for ICS ROM base 3.32.x,

    This mod enables all 4 effect available for xe and non-xe ROM, no-effect, srs, htc51(dolby) and beats. Beats sounds nothing on bluetooth.

    For ICS ROM base 3.32.x, non-xe ROM, flash Beats_ICS_v5.1.zip

    For ICS ROM base 3.32.10x, XE ROM, flash Beats_ICS_v5.1_XE.zip

    For GingerBread Sense 3.5, ROM base 2.08.401.1, Flash Beats_GB_v4.2.zip

    The mod is basically combine XE and non-XE sound effect styles into one.
    /etc/TPA2051* are volume boost tweak
    /etc/soundimage/* are my preference on srs, dolby and beats over BT tweaks
    TPA2051* and soundimages can be deleted, and stock is used instead.

    Beats cannot be delivered thru bluetooth and so it is moded to use srsfx_trumedia_movie.cfg soundimage to emulate beats effect.

    On ICS builds, the dolby and srsfx have same effect, it is supposed to use srsfx_trumedia_51.cfg and srsfx_trumedia_music.cfg soundimages respectively, but due to htc's ICS build has added global srs and beats feature, so dolby and srs were using srs_global.cfg soundimage, however bluetooth is normal, I haven't found a way to fix it, just live with it, if you want your preference of srs on wired headset, edit the /etc/soundimage/srs_global.cfg

    There is a feature of beats BT on latest ICS, however it is still under testing.

    Most frequently ask question: Note I may be wrong, but I prove it by my music background (piano/violin etc...) See below for my descriptions.

    No-Effect sounds like beats - from my understanding, Beats Effect is just bass enhancement only from No-Effect, and nothing more, bass gain is not louder either, that's why it is called Bass enhancement or BestsBass, it is not bass boost (SRS) which can boost a specific range of freq in strength and etc. What bass enhancement really do is emphasize low freq part something like prolonged the rythm, that's why you feel more rythmatic! makes you have an illussion of beating, and that's all the difference. Beats is louder, because on non-xe ROM, the TPA2051* (amplifier config) is configured 0x50 less volume, and xe ROM is 0x55, hence XE is louder, some ROM base you can differentiate no-effect and beats easily, because the volume is much more differ, but when it is close, you will say No-Effect sounds like beats, and it is caused by libraries.

    To make sure beats is in effect or not, use this command

    adb logcat BestsBass:V *:S

    and you will see what files are loaded when turn on beats, and when no-effect, you will see Effect Release ...

    It's for sense 3 / 3.5 ?
    3
    Please make the mod for sense 3.0 xe device also or explain which files I need to edit to make my own mod. Thanks

    Sorry, I cannot convinced myself to use sense 3.0, everything is better in 3.5, so why not just flash a sense 3.5 ROM?

    Making a mod out of original htc apk for all sound effects working requires adding codes to the apk, and beyond my knowledge of java, but anyway, I explain how beats works on sense 3.0 and 3.5

    sense 3.0: Sensation XE already has HtcMusic.apk enabled the beats, + the files for beats, those files you can see them on my mod.

    sense 3.5: To enable beats on sense 3.5 stock ROM 2.08.401.1, you just have to mod the services.jar framework file's class HtcHardwareService, method isSupportBeats to always returning true, and HtcListen.apk will simply operates in beats, plus you need files from XE to really hear the effect.

    For both 3.0 and 3.5, you need to mod the HtcMusic.apk and HtcListen.apk, adding, modifying codes to display the dialog, to invoke the effects etc... what I've done is just fixing others did, my first post's 2 links to the threads is where I got the modded HtcListen.apk, I referenced it to the original HtcListen.apk, tools I used:
    Apk manager 5.02 for decompile/compile apk
    smali/backsmali for moding services.jar
    dex2jar to decompile dex to jar and view classes on jd-gui for better understanding of the app.

    I confirm 4.7 version working on 3.30 based HyperNonSense v0.8.

    For setting up the activation of the beats mode i used the command:

    Code:
    # snd3254 -dspmode 08

    launched on the phone with a terminal emulator as root or via adb shell.

    Moreover, after setting up the configuration, a nice list of all possible codes will appear.

    This is the result of the command launched with "-h" option:

    Code:
    # snd3254 -h
    HTC TI-AIC3254 tool, version 1.1.0.3
    
    snd3254 [cmd] [parameter]
    -tx [device]

    -rx [device]
    	       Routing downlink path
    -setmic [para1(1 to 2)]
    	       1: Mic1 ON  + Mic2 OFF
    	       2: Mic1 OFF + Mic2 ON
    -v [level]
    	       1 <= level <= 15

    	      13: Receiver v.s. BMIC
    	      14: Speaker  v.s. BMIC
    	      15: Headset  v.s. BMIC

    -r [page] [reg]
    	       paras are in decimal

    and this is the result of the complete command:

    Success

    Since i dont like inaural headsets, i tested the activation with a pair of wired BOSE OE2. *Awesome!*
    Seems working not only in HTCMusic app but system wide. i.e., with JAzzRadio.com App the result is great and the difference noticeable :)

    Probably it works only on XE models. Can someone try it on standard Sensation?

    Thanks for the explanation. Sense 3.5 for the sensation isn't the final release and have problems, slow performance and battery life in compare to 3.0.
    I have beats headphones, when I connect them the enhancer option have option to disable beats/enable beats, not the HTC enhancer which is srs. I just try to figure out the way to make every headphones use the real beats enhancer, not the generic one. And bt/speaker out is also needed.
    If you can help I'll appreciate that. Thanks anyway.

    When disabled, it is SRS. The beats mods is for non beats headset to have beats, but ofcourse will never sound like a real beats headset.

    I was using sense 3.0, and switch to 3.5 for stability and performance, which I cook it for myself.

    To increase battery life, you have to use custom kernel, stock kernel of 3.0 and 3.5 are the same having poor battery life. But truly speaking, all of them have poor battery life. If you use a phone like HD mini, you can just do charging every 3 days. :D

    From my experience, especially htc, final release not equals to stability and performance, the latest may not stable, and features on test ROMs may never be released, those words are just their business strategy. I was curious about the test ROM 2.08.401.1, if you open those apks, the date was 2008, 3 years ago, it was coded 3 years ago and test for 3 years?
