Help me to buy an original HTC MHL Cable and an original HTC One X+ 2100mha battery, i'll try to add full battery support for One S and video-out at [email protected], i read somewhere that FullHD support is crappy :)

Other things you can do:

Help me to understand what's the best kernel/rom combination, so i can try to fix incoming call quality (incall volume fading).

I must say that I'm a little surprised that the noise suppression is done in the phone apk, wasn't expecting that at all. I will definitely test this to see if my theory was correct. And if it really fixes the problem, you've definitely earned yourself a beer. ;)

Are you on Maximus Stock Kernel or on ElementalX? Because I experienced even worse sound with ElementalX...

I think it's my bad, noise suppression is referred to our mic, not incoming call. So this mod can help to fix outgoing call problems, not incoming ones.
The good news is that i have an idea, i may know where are parameters to change incoming call settings too :)
@luxandroid, @rosswhite, @CazeW: can you tell me what rom/kernel (new or old rom) is/was working better for you (regarding in call quality)?

The quality is great, better than with 4.1.1, if the signal is good and thats almost everytime the case if not connectet to a data network.

That's from a different thread. Don't know if that causes the problem but I am a 100% sure that there was no data when calling on 4.1.1...maybe it logged into GSM network as stunner2002 said?!

EDIT: when googling found something about dual mode transfer setting (ro.ril.enable.dtm) in build.prop. Was that disabled in 4.1.1? Does that have anything to do with it?

This ROM and this kernel is what I used before MaximusHD and had no problems with call quality.

May be it's just me but the fading only happens to me when I'm on the phone to a landline (and not all the time). Mobile phones seem to be ok.

Outgoing is definitely no issue so I'm not sure how noise supression has anything to do with it

For me the quality only gets bad when the other side speaks quiet. If the person speaks loud, quality is okay. When the opposite is speaking quiet, it seems some parts are cut off...

I don't know why i haven't experienced any in-call volume issues. May it be incoming or outgoing. In fact, in-call volume is more louder now on maximusHD than when i was on viper before. But in case in the future, if i experience those issues (hopefully not. :p), i might try flashing this mod. Thank you anyway. :)

Japp, headphones to. It wouldnt fix it if the volume is raised its a Software issue. I notice sometimes the data connection is disabled by default when i call someone. If its the case Sound quality is outstanding. But its not always the case it disables automatically :confused:

I've had data completely disabled and still get problem so I doubt it's caused by that. And I agree that raising the volume will most likely do nothing to fix it.

I could also mention that I've tried both a different kernel (ElementalX) and a different radio and still had the problem.
