What's up everybody. This time I bring you a simple mod to increase the volume's on lollipop. What we're going to do is make some edit's in the mixer_paths.xml located in system/etc. Open in Notepad++ or editor of your choice and search for <path name="handset"> . See below for area's to edit,be careful and adjust slowly. Set permissions to 644 or rw-r-r.

Lollipop Guide: Location =system/etc

Only increase levels by a maximum of +10 to avoid speaker damage. On HPHL & HPHR raise levels slowly to avoid damage or distortion.

Thank you for this post! I have been looking for a while for a way to enhance the quality of my Bluetooth Headphones (Noise Cancelling Philips SHB8850NC). At the beginning I tried to install Viper4Android on my Samsung S5, but I was not able to make it work because I have the Android Lollipop 5.0 with Knox installed. So the only solution was to manually increase all the gains of the mixer_paths.xml file as described here, and now I can enjoy the best Bluetooth Experience! The bass is now pretty deep with the built-in Samsung player (bass equalizer).

Call mic gain in mixer_paths.xml

I read with great interest "How to increase volume in Lollipop Samsung S5". In my S5 the sensitivity of the call microphone is low: I need to speak with very loud voice.
I have not found in the Italian Forums a way to boost the sensitivity. I would appreciate if you could explain to me what I must variations in file mixer_paths.xml to achieve the required purpose.
I would ask you to be very clear how my experience is limited. If a slight increase in sharp ones the possibility exist too. My S5 SM-G900FD is rooted. Thank you.

Does this work with the exynos version?
I am asking because I use an S5 neo but the mixer_path.xml content is different from this one.
