I restored an older backup on my sensation and now it keeps saying there's something wrong with my music player. I post this here cause I had flashed this mod a few days ago and was working til now.

Anyone have a fix for this??

I know this thread hasn't been touched in a while, but I do like this addition on a stock non-xe rom. I've taken it upon myself to edit some sound levels and write a new updater-script for Beats_ICS_v5.1.zip that utilizes busy box partition mounting, cache and dalvik wiping, and also makes this mod compatible with both odexed and deodexed 3.32 roms.

The latter is important for stock roms!

So can I flash this on Steve0007 release of stock ics zip. I tried the bassini bassmod and it worked great except the fact that it breaks video viewer and turns the 4g icon to 3g .. tia

Yes, and this by itself should not break anything like the bassini bassmod. It's for the HTCListen (music player) only. No adreno drivers to leave glitches, no video playback issues. It also increases system wide volume on playback, but beats is limited to the music player.

That's perfectly fine and thanx for doing this. Last question. Does it only work with headphones ?

Edit: went ahead and flashed everything works flawlessly. Now my only issue is my 4g icon turned to 3g :( oh well. Thanx again.

It works with phone speaker as well. I have not tested with BT though.

You can flash Steve's rom again and then flash this back over it to restore icon (no wipes)...

Problem with Installation

Whenever I attempt to install Beats 5.1, I receive the "Installation aborted" error. Is there anything I'm doing wrong? Using Mike1986's recent ARHD for Tmo users.

Your recovery should also state a vague error for why the installation failed. You may need to turn off signature verification in recovery as these are unsigned packages...

You can also view the recovery log to get more detailed descriptions of a failure to flash.

    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.
    3
    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]

    -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
    	       Volume control by AIC3254 DAC
    -dspmode
    	       Configure AIC3254's minidsp
    	       Avaliable options will print out for reference
    -loopback

    	       2: Speaker  v.s. IMIC
    	       3: Headset  v.s. EMIC
    	      13: Receiver v.s. BMIC
    	      14: Speaker  v.s. BMIC
    	      15: Headset  v.s. BMIC

    -r [page] [reg]
    	       paras are in decimal
    	       Read value to specific register

    and this is the result of the complete command:

    # snd3254 -dspmode 08

    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?
