    It did not work placing it there. You were referring to the install.sh file in your module correct?
    No, the manifest.xml file

    Not sure what the side effects of removing broadcast radio line, but I guess it related with wifi and cellular data?
    If so, I noticed no problems on my OP3 after removing the line.
    Just tried activating hotspot, and it works
    Interesting. Can you post a full logcat and dmesg?

    First you need to install Viper4Android From MagiskApp Then Reboot After That Install Dolby Atmos Here ( https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=746010030569962641 ) And Then Reboot Again Lastly Install AML ( Audio Modification Libary ) From MagiskApp , Reboot . And Done .

    Handsomely Work On Mi A1 Oreo 8.1 Custom Rom XD , Dont Forget To Click The Thanks Button Hehehe

    Hi mate,
    sorry if I rise up old post of yours.

    I followed your method for my A1.
    I can enable Viper4Android, but i can't launch dolby atmos. it's always forced closed. did you experience the same?

    btw, the sound quality is much improved tho.

    EDIT:
    I finally can make both dolby atmos and V4A works! yeay!
    after following your instructions, and reboot, I realized that my AML is not activated. So I reinstall it, and then everything works!

    Thanks!

    No, I've never been able to boot with DU ROM. I was functional early in the previous thread on stock OOS 5.0.0. I just tried the latest Unity build and it bootlooped with basically the same errors, but yours added that audioserver had died:


    1. Make backup
    2. Go to edit /system/vendor/manifest.xml
    3. Remove this part:

    4. Reboot, install DA and enjoy ;)
    It worked! I removed those lines and flash the last standard version and voilá, i have dolby installed running OxigenOS Beta 7.
    Thx! :)

    I just flashed DA from this thread and I'm not satisfied with the audio quality. Ahrion's DA port sounds far superior to this one. I am NOT trying to demean the hard work put up by the dev. Kudos to him. He did an amazing job of porting DA to Oreo devices. It's just that the sound feels bloated and the awesomeness of DA isn't just there. And another problem is that If I flash it along with the V4A, although DA works, V4A doesn't process any audio. AML didn't do the trick. And in some cases I have faced problem like losing mobile network (No SIM card detected) after flashing DA. That's quite weird.

    Device: Galaxy S6 Duos. Tested on Nexus OS, AOSP Extended and RR oreo. All being official 8.1.0 builds.

    Try the dax-default file attached. Place it in the system/Dolby/etc folder in the zip and rename it after deleting the original one and reflash the mod.
    If still too loud and overeffected, bring all the EQ bands to -12 db.

    Try this one: https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=818070582850506017
    I didn't see anything unusual related to the removed section in the logs so who knows :)
    Tried flashing it.
    Failed flashing at first attempt, error message was "Please install Magisk v15.3+"
    ... I use Magisk ver 16.3....
    So I edited file "update-binary" and commented out following lines:
    Code:
    #if [ ! -d $MAGISKBIN ] && [ ! -d /data/magisk ]; then
      #MAGISK=false
      #ui_print "- System install detected"
    #elif [ ! -f $MAGISKBIN/util_functions.sh ]; then
      #require_new_magisk
    #else
      #[ ! -z $MAGISK_VER_CODE -a $MAGISK_VER_CODE -ge $MINMAGISK ] || require_new_magisk
      #ui_print "- Magisk install detected"
    #fi
    Tried flashing for 2nd attempt, succeeded :)
    No boot loop and DA works

    @Zackptg5 do you know why this doesn't work on note 8

    Can't say for certain but probably due to heavily modified audio components by samsung being incompatible with parts (likely the audioserver) of this mod. Not much you can do about it unfortunately

    @guitardedhero, @Zackptg5 . Please tell me why when i switch "dialogue enhancer" and "bass enhancer" nothing not happening? Sound not change. It is only at me?

    I don't develop the app so couldn't tell you. However both of those enhancers seem pretty subtle when I use them. I only notice them with better headphones (or it's just placebo lol)

    Working as expected :good:

    @guitardedhero
    Sweet, so this will be the next unity build then (same as before, just reposting the link for others): https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=962187416754473447

      There's a problem with reiryuki's mods especially with custom roms and kernels. I'm on 7t pro and I'm not able to flash ANY of his modules on to PE+ A11 ROM with selinex enforcing.

      I get sent straight to bootloop every single time and since my device doesn't have any working twrp I'm screwed cause I can't remove the individual module. I have to go for a factory reset with data wiped every time. Not worth it.
      Yes... All the dolby mods he is making are bad. Specially with custom roms. Brightness problems, problems with not detecting 3.5 audio plug, crashes, install problems. Also some are giving green filter over camera when it is bright (outsight).
      I tried already all of them. None is good. And he is saying it is the rom. Not my mods.
      I loved in the past the dolby atmod from @guitardedhero, but unfortunately these from reiyuki are crap

      Same for me. Best alternative is to use V4A, not sure what android version you're on but I made a guide to install it on A11 with SELinux enforcing. The guide is for the OP6/6T, but installing just V4A works for any android phone running A11. I recommend to do the full setup for V4A as it would make your sound quality so much better.

      "Listen to the Dolby Atmos™ Difference!"




      Dolby Atmos™
      for
      Android Oreo

      LExesia.jpg


      Description:
      • Dolby Atmos™ Digital Signal Processer with effects and Graphic User Interface ported from the latest ZTE™ Axon 7 Android Oreo firmware intended for all Android devices on Android Oreo.

      • Dolby Atmos™ sound effects applied to media audio output supporting various media players.

      • Flexible custom recovery installation archive supporting Magisk and SuperSU installations as well as existing audio mod installations - fully supporting Enforcing SELinux Mode:

        • Multiple installation scenarios available using the included arise_parameters.prop that is automatically copied to /sdcard if not already there. When edited by the user in this /sdcard location, arise_parameters.prop can:

          • Instruct an installation directly to /system if a Magisk user prefers a /system installation over the Magisk module installation.

          • Instruct a system-less module installation using /su if a SuperSU user with the system-less SuperSU installation prefers a module installation for a variety of reasons such as insufficient /system space to accommodate a /system installation or the convenience of a persistent installation unaffected by rom updates.

      • An independent build maintained by @[B]Zackptg5[/B] fully integrated with Unity:

        • Active accommodation of existing and future Magisk modules relevant to audio modification.

        • Flashing the installation archive over a current installation results with an uninstallation of the Dolby Atmos™ Magisk module.

        • @[B]Zackptg5[/B] explains the nuances a bit further here.


      Details:
      • A minimum of SDK 26 (Android 8.0) is required for installation to begin, else Exit 1 will abort the recovery installation activity.

      • A root solution or a capable kernel is required in order to automate the execution of scripts during boot to allow the appropriate sepolicy rules necessary for Dolby Atmos™ functionality while in Enforcing SELinux mode.

      • Third party audio effects and DSP's such as ViPER4Android (<--
        link to @[B]docnok63[/B]'s solution :highfive:) may require some extra effort to allow processing due to Dolby Atmos' dependency on its output_session_processing music effect.


      Instructions:
      • Performing a backup of the /system partition in recovery is encouraged for users receiving a /system installation:


        • TWRP > Backup > Check System > Edit name, if desired > Swipe to perform backup operation

      • Confirm device requirements are met and installation results are acceptable.

      • Confirm an escape route is available in the event of unsuccessful device boot or unsatisfactory experience.

      • Confirm successful download and location of downloaded archive(s).

      • Boot to recovery > Install > *.zip > Swipe to perform installation operation > Advanced > Copy Log > Reboot

      • Updating procedure is no different unless specified otherwise.


      Additional Information:


      • Unsuccessful device boot:

        • If experiencing a bootloop...

          ! ! DO NOT GIVE UP ! !

        • Wait until at least 60 seconds have passed, hold down the device's Power button until a reboot is initiated... and then give up if a successful boot fails to occur.


      • Escape routes for unsuccessful/unsatisfactory installations:

        • Magisk Module Installation:

          • If booted, navigate to /magisk using a capable file manager application and delete /dolbyatmos before rebooting the device. If experiencing an unsuccessful device boot, boot to recovery using the appropriate hardware button combination for the device, install the Magisk Recovery Management archive attached below, and follow the given instructions to delete the Magisk module (/magisk/dolbyatmos).

        • SuperSU /system installations:

          • Restore Backup in recovery if available: TWRP > Restore > appropriate backup folder > Check System > Swipe to perform Restore operation

          • Install the currently installed rom zip in recovery without any partition wipes or install a different rom zip according to the rom developer's installation instructions.


      • Reporting bugs/failures:

        • An acceptable report will include the /sdcard/recovery.log received after the installation session before booting from recovery even if the recovery session appeared to be free from any error. An acceptable report will include relevant information/details to equip me to efficiently address the report.


      • Auditing:

        • Assessing the installation is encouraged for all users and is especially helpful when the collected information is included in reports of less than perfect experiences.

        • Dumpsys:

          • The dumpsys utility in Android can be a very valuable troubleshooting tool, especially audio output processing related issues, when targeting the audioflinger service. Recommended terminal applications include Terminal Emulator for Android and Termux.

          • In Android Terminal:
            Code:
            su
            dumpsys media.audio_flinger
            or
            Code:
            su -c dumpsys media.audio_flinger

          • The output generated upon tapping the Enter key is the information of interest and can be copied from the Terminal and pasted with a report, if necessary.

          • This output includes the list of successfully configured audio sound effect libraries and any successfully created effect-chains from one or more of those libraries when combined with the successful installation of an appropriate apk, Dolby Atmos being one of many examples.

        • Logging:

          • The log utility in Android is another valuable tool for many various purposes, including troubleshooting. This utility is most convenient when used with a logging application such as Matlog in order to utilize features such as word filtering and syntax highlighting among others.

          • Using the logging application's search feature, the user can filter the displayed log output using words or characters relevant to this Dolby Atmos™ port such as: dolby, dax, dlb, dseffect and include that relevant log output with reports, if necessary.


      • Testing:

        • The possibility of my experience being different from others' experiences is always present!

        • Those meeting the installation requirements may certainly test against various aspects stated as facts within this OP such as incompatibility with other audio effects, requirement of Permissive SELinux Mode :highfive:, etc.


      • Vulnerabilities:

        • The installation, as with any device content, is not immune to impact from existing and future installations of custom content. This custom content may remove or modify necessary content, or introduce conflicting content preventing Dolby Atmos™ from functioning as intended by this mod's installation. Security measures can block these scenarios from occuring but will typically be implemented only after the discovery of such cases of "breaking" Dolby Atmos™ functionality, in which case, the relevant vulnerability will be omitted from this particular section.

      Release Candidate 1:
      • 32-bit and 64-bit installations from a single zip.

      • Axon 9 Pro apk and effect library used in both 32-bit and 64-bit installations to provide the most consistent experience for all users.

      • This allows 32-bit users to avoid the 3dB GEQ boost limit as well as any license check by Lenovo.

      • Removed much of the verbose messaging during the installation.

      • Refinements and minor corrections to every single script.

      Procedure:
      • Install ACDB 0.45 if not already installed.

      • Uninstall any existing Dolby Atmos™ installation and reboot.

      • Install RC1 in Magisk Manager or in custom recovery.

      • Save installation log before rebooting.

      • Apply your best effort to find a failure or force a failure of functionality by any reasonable means - deleting/overwriting something will not count, obviously.

      Android Oreo Database

      /system/bin/audioserver <-- Drive link


      • Purpose and Contribution:

        • Introduced with Android Nougat, audioserver appears as its own binary after years of being a component of /system/bin/mediaserver in all Android firmware.
        • Introduced with Android Nougat, vendor provided Dolby Atmos™ software audio solutions appear with a new media.dolby_memoryservice that is compiled into /system/bin/audioserver as well as a unique system library typically appearing as /system/vendor/lib/libdlbmemoryservice.so.
        • These new components are crucial to a functional Dolby Atmos software solution and there is currently no known way of achieving any amount of success without them.
        • While porting the very first Nougat Dolby Atmos system available, courtesy of ZTE™ Axon 7’s initial Nougat firmware image, I discovered this implementation and a functional port was finally available.
        • However, using a Nexus 6 at the time, I was able to evade nearly all bootloop scenarios with much of what would cause a bootloop scenario for others.
        • It took no time to determine that this new media.dolby_memoryservice component was going to be a challenge in achieving a viable Dolby Atmos Nougat port.
        • To begin, results were determined: Successful device boot or Unsuccessful device boot.
        • Stock firmware seemed to fare much better than custom firmware, even for just a single device.
        • A pattern began to emerge for me when focusing only on the audioserver binary: Stock firmware had an audioserver file size range (21.50KB-21.53KB) and Custom firmware had an audioserver file size range of its own (21.58KB-21.60KB).
        • Not a significant difference, unless you were looking for a difference.
        • This assessment presented an effective predictibility of an installation scenario's success and failure with nearly 100% accuracy (nearly only because every possible scenario is not documented).
        • This audioserver database is intended for those that have determined a single scenario as successful or as unsuccessful due to the native audioserver binary in their device’s rom being overwritten or symlinked over with the audioserver native to the ZTE™ Axon 7 Oreo firmware AND NOT A RESULT OF ANY OTHER FILE OR SCRIPT OPERATION!!
        • Simply, those with success have the easier path requiring nearly no effort other than uploading the native audioserver from their firmware along with the firmware build.prop to the WIN audioserver folder.
        • Those contributing to the FAIL audioserver folder with the native audioserver along with the firmware build.prop will only be able to do so after some personal testing to ensure the audioserver switching is the exclusive cause of an unsuccessful device boot after flashing the Dolby Atmos installation archive in recovery.
