So no answer as to why 2 different ROMs lost the ability to make noise after flashing? .. xenon and paranoid, flashed and lost sound all together, including touch tones, screen lock sounds nothing worked...

Yup. Im on stock rom unlocked rooted. Audio seemed fine then suddenly no more sound. Had to restore.

It happens the first time, then it will hang and reboot, after which everything will work properly. It's because of the build.prop and what's been written to it. Look at the screenshot below, its the same thing

Thanks for the reply. Will try again next time. I just restored from backup. Maybe will wait for a more stable version.
Does this severely impact battery life? I am using Equalizer from market and it does a little bit.

Can confirm working on Paranoid Android v2.13 using Clemsyns Elite UV kernel :D

Not sure why others are having issues with this ROM, altho I only tried this mod on the latest version of PA.

Thanx for this!!

Edit: Sound stops working until reboot after any notification attempts to play. Will keep testing :D

Tried to flash on my Nexus7 with AOKP JB Build 2 and did not work "completely"

When i first boot device up i can hear sounds when the screen is pressed. but when i try to play movie or listen to music no sounds come out.

when i try and play music through google music/movies it plays but no sounds come out of device. Also NO sounds come out of device after i try to play movie or listen to music.

It also seems to be random rebooting as well. Can't isolate that to this mod but was not happening before BUT have only been on AOKP JB Build 2 for a couple days.

However i CAN hear sound from my movies in gallery. BUT not after i try to play something in anything google, ie music/movies... also after i try to play something in google dsp manger app and setttings... volumes locks up.

To those who got it working: Was the volume boost harder on the speakers with respect to distortion or anything or did it somehow improve it?

I find the volume pretty decent on mine to begin with but certain tones in My Piano definitely distort in those crappy little speakers.

I definitely WOULD like to see a good quality universal DSP ported to the N7 to help avoid frequencies our speakers don't like though, so here's hoping Misledz works out the kinks. :)

Had the exact same problem including the random rebooting. Just had to flash back to what i had before. I was running stock with root, so i don't know what the deal was.

Will this make my Google Music pause all the time? I know the audio boost setting on certain kernels (Franco, Trinity) causes GMusic to pause relentlessly during play when using Aux port.

That's what happened in mine. Actually, it is not pausing but no sound after several seconds of playing using headphones.

It shouldn't as this is purely replacing system files with a more improved version. If you were to use full volume, then perhaps so. But for me, on the Prime it doesn't drain much. Depends on your governor I suppose.




Will this make my Google Music pause all the time? I know the audio boost setting on certain kernels (Franco, Trinity) causes GMusic to pause relentlessly during play when using Aux port.

It won't. I can assure you that much as this has nothing to do with franco kernel but it works pretty good with that. I assume the problem is caused via the ALSA mixer files.




Did not work for me. No sound from anything. Borked anything that played any sort of audio. Had to use backup to reinstall stock ROM.


awkward enough everyone's stock gives different results. Working on it.




tried stock rom with franco kernal no sound what so ever, and caused the tablet to reboot

will try stock with mautley kernal or trinity


As per the screen shot I uploaded a Page before. That's supposed to happen as its more of a jump start. I hope you have a nandroid as the newer version may work without fail this time.

ATM the current build works with stock but I wonder why it's giving different results to people when in fact it's pretty standard, Anyways I've sat down and reworked the build from scratch.

I'm still trying to work out the kinks there. I had downloaded the deodexed stock and tried to start from there. Initially I had this tested randomly on the tab and it worked which had me shocked, i checked the file system and it was no different from one another. Basically the jellybean system are the same for both the Nexus prime and 7, except for the call feature. I'm reworking the mod and will upload a new revision by tonight based on the stock.

I apologize for the inconvenience for those who were unable to get it to work. But my current free time enables me to work on it properly now. Thank you for having nandroid backups and of course reading the OP.

Didn't work for me after a number of reboots/lockups etc. Soon as I played anything, sound would stop, and you could not access the volume controls from settings etc.. ended up restoring my nandroid. N7 doesn't have enough room on it to keep doing backups, and with this less than 3Gb issue......

Edit: hmm and my nandroid didn't work, so had to do a reset...great!

Stock, rooted + Trinity

    Notice: Flashables are divided into Post #1 and Post #2. Post #1 will contain all the information, misc & flashables for 4.1.2 and Post #2 will contain the flashables for 4.2.1/4.2.2, take note all the latest will be the most recent upload. All 4.2.2 builds start from V3B4

    What This Mod Does:

    Nexus devices have pitifully low volume. Previous fixes like the Volume+ app and Franco's app only increased the volume on music playback, or in the headphones, but did nothing for in-call volume or notifications.

    This mod changes all that. It will increase ALL volume, across the entire phone: ringtone, music, notifications, loudspeaker sound, ear speaker sound, in-call volume, and headset.

    Requirements:

    -Rooted.
    -Custom recovery like CWM or TWRP.
    -Jellybean Deodexed OR Odexed.
    -Custom kernel with high quality audio tweak enabled is recommended (e.g. Franco or Trinity or AK).
    -Nandroid Backup, I implore people to have at least one recent one as this method is faster.


    Compatible With :

    -Galaxy Nexus, Kindle Fire (reported), also Nexus 7.
    -Universal for all kernels and ROMs.
    -All major players, including: Google Music, Noozy, PowerAMP (see note below), Apollo, PlayerPRO.

    Note on PowerAMP - To allow PowerAMP to be controlled by external DSP/EQ you must disable Direct Volume Control under Audio Tweaks in Settings.

    Installation:

    *Revert previously installed patch as necessary.

    1. Copy zip to Internal Storage
    2. Boot to custom recovery
    3. Install zip from sdcard
    4. Reboot
    5. Choose EIZO ReWire PRO under Settings > Sound > Music Effects


    Note: If you do not have the "Music Effects" submenu then EIZO should be enabled by default since it's the only DSP present.


    FAQ:

    What you should do:

    • Configure EIZO, Select it in Music Effects.
    • Refer to the Op for EIZO settings.
    • Practice tuning your own values. EVERY user has their own listening experience. What sounds good to one and not the other doesn't become the fault of the MOD.
    • Keep backups of your Alsa Mixer if you use call recording BEFORE flashing this MOD
    • Keep backups (The revert is safe) but I am not responsible for loops if you flash this on another device.
    • Flash the MOD after every ROM flash. Not necessarily kernel flash.
    • Search if your ROM has been mentioned. KEYWORDS are a must. Example is 'PA works' and the results will be displayed. If not feel free to ask and I shall assist you.

    What you shouldn't do:

    • Test the loudness via Settings. There is an implemented system limiter so you can't tell the difference. Call yourself or sms yourself so you can know the difference.
    • Complain of distortion without testing your own values. I've set a recommend layout in the OP hoping it's to give you an idea.
    • Error 7, Error 7 is a halt procedure. Please debug the error and see what's written before saying Error 7 only.
    • Alternate flashing. (I know some of you prefer to flash the Gnexus mod on the N7 but doing so breaks the media codes, if you have the patience to swap the media codes in etc folder of the N7 then it's fine)
    • Don't use Noozy lockscreen controls, they're unreliable till a new app is remade.
    • Don't use compression in EIZO. Causes massive volume fluctuations as it was set to be an AVLS.

    Credits:

    • Awesome.. who's done a great job, and a big thanks to bigxie too for the epic 4.1 port.

    Reason for major swap from DSP+Apollo - Noozy

    As much as I like giving the option to people on DSP and how they chose to listen to their choice of music, I did a poll over the N7 side, and collected all the data here, and about 70% don't use DSP but only 30% do. So inorder to satisfy both sides, I decided to integrate proper XLouder+Beats that work perfectly without issues, this would highly benefit the audiophiles and those who complain about bass and it's distortion. On another note I have tried my best to retain the loudness infact this build has a whooping 5% loudness, 7% with HTC enabled. And all this is safe.

    Word to the wise when using Noozy do not max Psychoacoustic II, as the bass works best on 20-40% [And I repeat for this to work, Please invest on Class A/B/C Bass headphones, Also, Beats..Is class C :|, Most of you might think Beats was Class B or A but it's not. I've tested out this so called 5.1 Surround Sound and Razer Electa $60 headphones can output that and Beats can't] Just my 2 cents. Don't shoot the messenger LOL.

    Noozy was the ULTIMATE choice as this cleared the headache of choosing which side do I lean on and which side would I end up screwing over. Bass+Loudness vs those who like baubly neat interfaces, and earlier today a friend of mine linked me Noozy and I tested it out and I was shocked as to how it abused EVERYTHING properly, This player was recommended to most HTC Beats Users but after enabling it on our build.prop it works just the same, Amazing, Crisp, Clean, Flawless! and the album artwork is GORGEOUS! Please do not forget to enable the options in Settings shown below to get the best feel of it. Also Lockscreen Controls are glitchy, but I'm sure the developer would work on a way to fix this.

    Caution: Clear cache/data for all DSP's if you had saved values previously as 4.3 and 4.2.2 settings delete them as they are like 2 saucy women in a bar getting ready for a ghetto booty showdown.

    Word to the wise, In order for the DSP's to kick in, 4.3 has made some security changes where it won't just run in the background, For EIZO & Beats to kick in, you need to launch the app manually after selecting it from Music->Effects, proceed to GMusic or App of choice, followed by going to the EQ settings from the music app, and change the settings. When changing DSP's from one to another, completely close out the app from the Multi-tasking menu, and notification bar (Best if you FC it from App Info) then change DSP in Music->Effects Settings and finally relaunch the app, making your changes in the EQ.

    Hey, not sure if we've been talking much about Noozxoide EIZO-Rewire Pro EQ over here yet or not, but sweet jesus did it ever fix the rumble/distortion on my speakers. This is just using EIZO, not the louder patch so you might have to further adjust if you're trying to use both. Personally I find the N7 speaker volume just fine, nowhere near as bad as the GN; the distortion was the problem.

    My settings are as follows:

    • XLimiter enabled, compression strength "Hard";
    • Psychoacoustic disabled;
    • X-EQ enabled, frequencies at -1.0, -2.5, -5.5, -2.5, -1.0;
    • VE-Engine disabled;
    • Logicsurround ES enabled, room size "Studio".

    When I first got my N7 I noticed the rumble. I tried prying open my case and push down on the speakers as per the OP of the Speaker Issues thread, but there was no popping or snapping into place.. So I figured there must also be a bit of resonance we have to deal with to avoid the distortion/rumbling, and now we finally have a nice EQ to help. :D:good:
    19
    New build out, V3B8
    • More loudness on speaker (safe)
    • Improvements with lib system, increased loudness where necessary. Speakers without much reliance to EIZO.
    • Replaced violent libs with more low tuned ones, this should lower static but at the expense of music experience, if you face static issues do let me know.
    • Updated libs for CM, Beats, XLouder
    • Improved stability on higher volumes and feedback
