How to Manually adjust.
1.Using a root Explorer(ROM toolbox, ES, etc.) go to system/etc.
2.Open mixer_path.xml with an built in xml editor.
3.Values you need to adjust are close to the bottom of the file. Description is pretty self explanatory.
4.See image below. The values I have set to "88" can be changed to affect Speaker and headphones. Now edit your values.
5.Save changes, reboot and enjoy!


6.To adjust in-call volume. Go back to mixer_paths.xml. Look for the "ear" path under analog output devices. Edit volume value, save and reboot.
The image below has the value set to "93". Edit this value.


Disclaimer: Adjusting these values could damage your speakers and your hearing. Be careful and use caution.

This mod only affects the external bottom speakers and headphones. I'm running nightly 7/31 with med increase. They did do something with the XML file to make it more device specific. The only change I see for volume in nightly 8/1 is for voice paths. Still I like my volume slightly increased.

Thanks for this great mod.Sound is better now.
Any chance for a mod that should also increase the Internal Speaker.There is an option for it in franco's kernel but since it still suffers from random reboots i prefer to be in stock kernel.
I believe everyone will also appreciate a mod for louder internal speaker.

On Mahdi rom, volume boost worked on speaker but no sound from headphones. Reverted to stock file and headphones work again!

I can confirm this. I reverted the changes to "headphones" and sound plays on the headphones again.
Heres the link to it, https://www.mediafire.com/?7i863p82coury87 (its the loud from OP version with default "headphones" values)

I believe V4a installs a modified equalizer, files and libs improving sound quality. I have it running on Liquid Smooth atm. I still adjust my volume. Just what I prefer. I need my alarm loud enough to wake me up for work. Plus I got a pair of Beats I'd like to use to it's full potential. Also I think the speakers on the One are good but not great. I've heard better but it still gets the job done. So don't think this is some miracle mod to improve your speaker quality..lol. It just boost volume for speakers and headphones.

Is this mod better than Viper4Android?? thanks!
This mod just adjusts volume, viper4android is a equalizer that changes sound quality. They're two different things. Although Viper can also change the output sound volume as well. I prefer both.
