S5 Volume Boost ¸¸♬·¯·♩¸¸♪·¯·♫

.v1 Lite
All sounds boosted by 4, I choose to increase by only 4 as I felt this gave a great boost to the stock level without sound distortion.
from feedback, this is the best/perfect level of sound

.v2 Medium
All sounds boosted by 5, Medium Level sound increase. personally untested due lite is best for me.

.v3 Extra Loud
All sounds boosted by 6, Extra Loud Level sound increase. personally untested, could cause a crackle sound when music, ringtone etc is
played.

.v4 Lite + Headphone Increase
Same as Lite, apart the headphone volume is increased slightly more, tested and is ok for a boost to your tunes


v5 g900f 4.4.2 Headphone only increase http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=54862671&postcount=243
v5 g900f Lollipop http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=58039332&postcount=420

It would be a good idea to do a Nandroid backup or a backup of your mixer_path.xml file in /system/etc before hand.
From feedback, I believe versions 1 to 4 might work on other variants like the Sprint, T-mobile etc. But please Backup before testing.
If you have a variant other than the G900F and want a 100% working boost I need your mixer_paths.xml from your device.

Any problems please reply, and flash the G900F restore to get back to stock level

Easy flash guide:
Drop .zip onto internal or ext storage
and flash with a custom recovery.

Hope you like, and any questions please ask :)

Update 9/12/2014:
Added TW Lollipop for g900f
Added CM12/ASOP Lollipop for g900f
Added TW for g901f

All are v4 boosts

These do NOT work on the G900H, other variants use with caution

S5 Volume Boost -

Please leave feedback if its too loud or not loud enough.

Took me a while to find the correct file to modify as its changed since the s4. Also this is my first time doing such thing to release to XDA
So Please flash at own risk. I have tested this on my ROOTED G900F and works great. I don't see why it wouldn't work on other S5 models.

Downloading and and will test. I find so far the other mods over on the TMobile S5 XDA site seem to distort. They have three mods...lite...medium...loud and even the lite version seems to add quite a bit of distortion.
NICE!!!!. Just the right amount, IMHO. No more distortion when I max the volume. Plus I have Viper4 FX onboard running nicely. You have to upgrade to the latest 2.3.3.0 to have it work correctly. This is on my G900T.

hey there stalli0nUK nice work , nice work indeed !


you looking for feedback so I come to help , running this on my rogers G900W

file flashed and works without a hitch.

my feeback as requested from OP It could use more boost.
I used to run this sound booster on my s4
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2293133

the file I used and ran that was perfect is

VOLUME BOOSTING SOUND [MODERATE]
DOWNLOAD LINK - http://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=23252070760972943
tourchwiz


the levels is this were great .

maybe a thought you could have a couple different versions for users to try out as they have in that thread as well .

again great job on the boost and it will be my daily driver for now , hoping you can release another with a bit more boost to it for speaker volume :)

when you say increase by 4 you is that you increase the values 4 up in mixer_paths.xml like example if the speaker digital volume was 84 you increased to 88?

Just tested it and you're right my bootsound went and phone lagged bad!! I've re-flashed v1 from 1st page and its fixed the phone.
I deleted the v2 attachment also from last post, Think the problem is I may have max'd out one of the sound volumes beyond its limits, causing total lag.

will look into it and find what ones I can turn up safely, thanks for reporting it to me before many people had same problem!

I put 93 in almost all the values and dont happen that..that is weird. Then I changed because the distortion.

Thanks for your values.For me that values you use in the first one are perfect :)

Ok found the problem will release a new one, but I really don't think it's a good idea going too loud, as you said the s5 speaker tends to crackle at too high volume boost.
