Is this something a beginner could do? I'm new to this whole concept of root. Also, how do I know if I have Snap dragon or exynos?

This is the instruction for Pie, do it yourself
backup /system/etc/mixer_paths.xml first before editing it

add these line to
Code:
<path name="media-speaker">
to make it looks like this:

Original:
Code:
	<path name="media-speaker">
		<path name="route-spkamp-playback" />
		<path name="dev-speaker" />
	</path>

Modified:
Code:
	<path name="media-speaker">
		<path name="route-spkamp-playback" />
[COLOR="Red"]	    <path name="route-playback" />
	    <path name="dev-handset" />[/COLOR]
		<path name="dev-speaker" />
	</path>

Locks up my Note 8, gets forever stuck on the Samsung blinking boot-up animation.

Exynos model with Oreo, rooted with SU.

Is there a way to flash this on a Snapdragon if I don't have magisk? I did all the steps and to no avail..I don't have Magisk root, I have superSU.
Make sure you are using the SNAPDRAGON version here...https://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=3677719

And manually copy the mixer file into place (rename original with ".bak" at end of file name in case of issue)
Set permissions and reboot.
I recommend using Root Explorer over esfile etc

    Are You sad that Samsung didn't give us stereo speakers?
    Well, don't be. Today I made a Dual Speaker Mod for our beloved devices! :D

    Guide:
    1. Download modded mixer_paths.xml
    2. With any root explorer or TWRP go to /system/etc
    3. Paste and overwite/replace Your current mixer_paths.xml with the modded one.
    4. Set permissions to 0644 or 644.
    5. Reboot & enjoy! :)

    From S7 Edge. I remember someone making an apk file for non-rooted user for this kind of mod. I don't know if it's possible for the Note8. Hope so...

    So rot confirm this can only be done by rooting your device correct?

    This is really exciting news.

    And is the sound stereo or just double mono?
