Hello Everyone,
I hope you all are great...

PLEASE GIVE ME YOUR FEEDBACKS IN ORDER TO IMPROVE THE MODULE...

Don't Forget to say :good: THANKS :good:
and
if you're very happy, please consider Donating to Support me, it means a lot even if it was little...

EXYNOS: I have made SoundMod Magisk Module by Modifying my own mixers_path.xml & mixers_gain.xml
SNAPDRAGON: I have made SoundMod Magisk Module Flashable TWRP (You can use Flashfire) by Modifying original mixer_paths_tavil.xml
provided by louforgiveno
He has Samsung Note 8 T-Mobile

Outdated
Download below:

Make your own soundmod by following my guide here:
dualspeaker soundmod tutorial guide - all devices - root only

!!! ALWAYS MAKE BACKUP OF YOUR FILES BEFORE REPLACING THEM !!!
If you didn't, no worries I have Attached my Backup (EXYNOS & SNAPDRAGON)...
You can Use it with MAGISK (Snapdragon device, doesn't have Magisk)
or
You can Use it with TWRP
or
Just extract the MANUAL zip and get the mixers and place them in your system/etc & set permissions to 644 (rw-r--r--) ...
reboot...
Re-Tested on my Note 8 Exynos...
Still Works Great... :silly:

Let me know if you face any issues...
SNAPDRAGON MOD:
I Thank you for very much your help user louforgiveno ...
--- TWRP file is flashable by flashfire reported by users...
--- TWRP Bluetooth & Headphones (the file name having "_BT_HD_" ) Gain Modified by member rickberg, revised by me...

EXYNOS MOD:
--- Merged All Modules and produced one, DIY for volume change...
--- Top Speaker as it is, created TWRP as well...
- disabled bottom speaker upon request from Motawa88...

IMPORTANT NOTICE:
The MOD can be used with any Equalizers, but wouldn't recommend it...
If using Equalizer will cause crackles and noise, stop using and report back please so I could decrease the default volume...


--- Viper4Araise Settings tested by an XDA Member:
I use this version https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B2kFWHz2n1w0dVBEOFVNRDE1STg/view?usp=drivesdk
The pics will show the "main" items to change for volume increase (bass and treble settings to your liking....just be sure to enable the tabs of the items you want to hear changes to)
And lastly remember each sound output will have its own config page ie headset, bluetooth etc.

DIY Volume Adjust
( You can only adjust the earpiece due to the hardware, you can not adjust it from the mixer)
(I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE):
  • SNAPDRAGON: to Adjust:
    Code:
        <path name="earpiece">
    ......................................
    	<!--default is 84, safe up-to 95, can reach to 120, DANGEROUS above 95-->
    	<ctl name="RX0 Mix Digital Volume" value="90" />
    ......................................
        </path>
  • EXYNOS: to Adjust:
    Code:
    <!--default is 30, safe up-to 40, can reach to 60, DANGEROUS above 40-->
    <!--XDA-Dante63: Defining Ear start-->
       <ctl name="HPOUT3L Input 1 Volume" value="33" />
       <ctl name="HPOUT3R Input 1 Volume" value="33" />	
    <!--XDA-Dante63: Defining Ear end-->
       <path name="gain-media-headset">
         <!--default is 107, safe up-to 120, if you hate your ears and headset, go above 120-->
    	<ctl name="HPOUT2L Impedance Volume" value="107" />
    	<ctl name="HPOUT2R Impedance Volume" value="107" />
         <!--default is 32, safe up-to 40, if you hate your ears and headset, go above 40-->
    	<ctl name="HPOUT2L Input 1 Volume" value="40" />
    	<ctl name="HPOUT2R Input 1 Volume" value="40" />
       </path>
Don't Forget to say :good: THANKS :good:
and
if you're very happy, please consider Donating to Support me, it means a lot even if it was little...

Again I Say Please, your Feedbacks are important for futuristic updates to improve the MOD...

Does it require root. I mean do I need to root the phone. Can it be done without root.

I tried the extract method but unable to overwrite it. Using ES explorer

Magisk Requires Root Access as well writing to the path /system/etc ... even through ADB, you must type ADB root...

However It might be possible if the temp recovery still works, I can give you no guarantees that it will work but as far as I know it shouldn't trigger Knox nor void the warranty...

I will reset my phone to stock and attempt to do things with no root / custom recovery and let you know...

I shall be thankful to you if it is possible without root. Don't understand why Samsung keeps the max volume so low. Iphones have enough filling sound.

IMHO it crackles when put on the loudest. To much noise. Just giving a heads up

Verstuurd vanaf mijn SM-N950F met Tapatalk
I never had crackles meaning your song might be amplified or boosted... Perhaps you're using equalizer... I could lower the volume by half... But first tell me more about the crackle... Top speaker or bottom...?
Hm ye my alarms are making it crackle =/ also how do I increase the headphone volume?
Top speaker or bottom...? Currently headphones and Bluetooth have no boost for ear safety... I could slightly boost it...

V3 will be released fixing any crackles/noise, with a slight boost of Bluetooth and headphones...

That I have to experiment,
However from one bluetooth/headphone to another the sound level will be different, in other words... In a cheap bluetooth/headphones 100% crackles and noise will be present which is why I said, *Slight increase*,

If you insist on increasing it beyond the safe level, I won't stop you...

Have some patience...

You didn't tell me the crackle coming from which speaker?

That is why I said to have patience...

If you really want to help me and youare in the mood to reboot your phone many times in order to figure out the right line, please go ahead...

And for the love of god, the Crackle sound you complained about, which speaker has the crackles?

for me it was the ear speaker but it worked out better when lowering the EQ as you said.

Keeping my eye on this thread, hopefully in time you can get a non rooted version working which also does not trigger knox or any modification indicators

Same, I would love to make it work without tripping KNOX, root on my S6edge+ used to disable S Health, Samsung Pay and a lot of goodies that I wanted to use. So if there is a way, I'm all ears :D My Note8 is currently fully stock.
