Your problem is not caused by glue covering the mic. It sounds like hardware failure. Sometimes some hardware items like mic, speaker, wifi, etc will stop functioning if the firmware is not correct gor your specific hardware revision. Just make sure you odin the official samsung OG5 rom tar with odin on your pc. First make sure you have the samsung usb drivers installed on your pc. Google it. Then proceed to flash the official OG5 tar in odin. This will ensure u have all of your device partitions updated correctly to OG5 android 5.1.1.. this shpuld resolve thae mic problem.

@dschachm I'm doing smali work in secsettings to get the TorchLight toggle working correctly in the notification panel settings so that you can move/edit the TorchLight toggle. If i'm not mistaken, there's no toggle icon for it in the notification panel settings. Can you confirm this for me and upload a screenshot? If the toggle icon does in fact show up in the notification panel settings group of selectable toggles, then that would save me a lot of time creating new smali code for it. Thanks.

I am not on stock so I am not sure what it looks like. I am pretty sure the toggle is there automatically as I was on the ROM yesterday and it showed up when I put in torchlight in sqlite editor. I do remember having an issue though if you try to move the toggles around d once you add it it would dissapear. I actually just have all the toggles copied in google keep, then past them to the location in my screen shot. That way I don't have to move them around every time I reload a ROM. I do know I have been doing this since lollipop and the torchlight always shows up.

This is exactly what I'm talking about. You see, that toggle was never meant to be fully integrated into the notification panel. The reason the toggle disappears when you try to move it to/from the active list of toggles is because the toggle icon and corresponding code is missing from secsettings. That toggle is only in systemui and that's why it works until you try to move it in notification panel settings... which is handled by secsettings. I know what to do. I'll fix it. Thanks again for the heads up. I was wanting to get the stock Samsung flashlight working without doing the open source mod and I see it's not too difficult since it now appears to work out of the box (almost). LOL

I tried odining the official og5 had same problem, but did a little bit more research on the net, it took me reading comments on what was suppose to be the solution to find the solution lol, come to find out, it was something covering the mic, i was told to gently use a small needle to check it and clean it, it was something in there that was thick so i gently scraped it out and now it works fine, so maybe like the sprint tech said it was some type of melted glue, thats what they found in the old phone, solution was simple smh lol

I tried odining the officia og5l tar, but people still cant really hear me unless i put it on speaker, like i said it was working fine before rooting and flashing anything, now im back stock without root, on the og5 tar like you said still not working, i just got this one hate to take it back to sprint again, any other suggestions tx

That's really odd. The only other suggestion I have is to take it to a corporate Sprint store with a tech dept. and let them verify the problem. If the don't have replacements there in the store then they will have one sent to the sore for pickup in a day or two. I guess they did this already. however if you just bought your phone and it's within 14 days, you should be eble to exchange it for another BRAND NEW IN BOX note 4 and not have to settle for a refurbished phone. Demand a brand new phone if you're within your 14 days of original purchase. Don't wait around too long because they will give you the run-around and we all know how aggravating that is.

I agree. I want all of you to know that I am working on this rom for the next few days and I will have most of these mods done by then. Don't sweat the small stuff. I'm doing things the way I like for my rom to be and I'm sure most of you will like it as well. I will have all of the mods that have been asked for including the popup warnings disabled, 5-way reboot is done, high-volume warning is done, etc, etc. Just be patient. I'll post a big patch when I get things finished. Yes V4A and MORE will be built into the rom. I have a few cool ideas. If necessary I will just build a new complete rom and upload it with all the new features.

If you want to post your "handy work" here in my rom thread then that's fine but you should also know that people will be asking "how and where" to get them. LOL I just wanna say that there's really no need in posting the mod screenshots here because I am already including these mods and many more in the days to come. I want everyone to understand that this rom IS currently being updated with the most common mods & tweaks and that has been the plan from day one. I just don't want to release new roms or patches until I get nearly everything done to keep the updates to a minimum. I think I had too many updates with my previous roms causing people to have to flash too frequently. I don't like that. So give me a few days and I will have a big update. Thanks for the support!
You Rock, Thank You...

I tried to edit my message before you replied thought it went through, but i found the solution from doing some research that i found alot of people was having the same issue on different phones, the solution was actually not on the page with the so called fix but in the comments of the page lol, like i said the other note 4 i took to sprint, the tech opened it up and said it was some glue from the phone melted over the mic on the inside, but they ordered me a new one for another problem, so once i got the new one, the mic was working fine, then i rooted and flashed, mic wasnt working again, so i odined to tar like you said, still no luck, then in those comments someone said take a small needle and gently clean the mic hole, i did that and there was something in there like glue or wax, after i cleaned it, it works perfectly, something that simple smh lol but thanks for your help tx

If you notice this happening intermittently, your phone may have not activated right. Dial ##72786# and let the phone reactivate after powercycling itself. I'm a lead tech for Sprint and I have found that when a phone is activated for the 1st time if anything is interrupted or not allowed to complete it messes with the audio. The most common thing is making changes or trying to use the phone before the Sprint customization installer runs.

I'm guessing it's while a phone is charging, while in the sunlight, running gps, while also being a dashcam, and streaming music, and forgetting to take the case off. At least mine heats up to untouchable when I do that, unless I aim an a/c vent directly at it. That is how I think glue could seep into the mic holes. If it weren't for heat, this phone would still do all these things and have muscle to spare.

    I bring to you a Hybrid Sprint N910PVPU4COG5 ROM. Built from the official Samsung OG5 tar ball. The initial ROM release is available in Odexed and Deodexed. Both are identical beside being odexed or deodexexd. The ROM will self root upon flash and it has init.d/busybox support (to be determined once we have a kernel that supports it). Knox and Sprint Itson has been removed completely. The "Basic" ROM includes the stock pre-rooted OG5 "Beastmode" kernel provided by @freeza

    Other than a few small mods and the REMOVAL of Knox, Sprint Itson and several pre-installed "bloat" apps, this ROM is stock in every other way. I spent a lot of time with root and the updater-script to make it flash and pre-root as it should with no hassles. I DO NOT give permission for ANYONE to use this ROM or any future version of it for your own ROM base or any other derivative of my ROM. So don't do it! I will build a stock base ROM soon and it can be used for other peoples' projects. Thank you. Enjoy!

    About ROM:
    Hybrid-X "Basic" (Initial release)
    • Removed Sprint Itson and Knox
    • Pre-Rooted and SuperSU is pre-installed
    • Odexed version has the stock fully odexed frameworks utilizing ART (Android Runtime)
    • Deodexed 100% system and frameworks (best for future mods and Xposed, if and when it gets updated for Android 5.1.1)
    • Official OG5 modem and APN's included in the ROM zip
    • Updated all system apps (deodexed version only)
    • Ability to change view type in settings
    • Hotspot enabled by default
    • Voice call recording enabled

    • Disabled usb connect/disconnect screen wake
    • Disabled auto-correction patent. (Thanks to "Crapple")

    • Long press volume to skip music tracks (currently not working for 5.1.1. Still working on it)
    • more to come...


    Important Note: Before flashing any Android 5.1.1 TW ROM. you MUST first have done one of the following:
    1. Take the Lollipop OG5 ota update on your phone.
    2. Odin flash the stock ROM tar below.
    ALL_SPT_N910PVPU4COG5_N910PSPT4COG5_CL5303209_QB5691107_REV00_user_low_ship_MULTI_CERT.tar.md5
    If you are still on ANY KK or Lollipop 5.0 based rom ( such as OB7, OE1, OF5 including any KK AOSP/CM based roms) then you MUST first update to Lollipop 5.1.1 OG5 by one of the two methods I mentioned above, BEFORE flashing any of these 5.1.1 ROMs. However, if you are still on the first TW Lollipop 5.0 OB7 ROM or a stock/custom KitKat ROM and you have NEVER updated to Lollipop 5.1.1 OG5, then I highly recommend flashing my custom OB7/OG5 rom tar found HERE. It will allow you to keep your old OB7 bootloader and still fully update to OG5 Android 5.1.1. Read that thread for more information.



    Flashing Instructions
    ***Before beginning the flash/setup process MAKE SURE your battery has at least 50% charge and/or connected to the charger!!!***


    1. Backup anything you don't want to lose off your internal storage to another location.

    2. Download the rom using your pc. (downloading with your phone has a much higher risk of file corruption. Not recommended with large files).

    3. VERIFY the md5!!! Once the download has finished, compare the AFH md5 using a md5 tool on your pc. (Google is your friend).

    4. Put the downloaded rom onto your internal storage or external micro sd card.

    Before you go any further you need to odin flash the latest TWRP (recovery). Uncheck the "auto-reboot" option in the Odin tool before flashing TWRP. Once it finishes flashing, press and hold the home button, volume down and power button for several seconds until it reboots then QUICKLY press and hold home, volume UP and the power button and it will reboot to recovery without the need to do a battery pull. Otherwise continue to the next steps below.

    5. With phone powered off, reboot into recovery by pressing and holding volume up, power and the home button until you see the samsusung logo then release all buttons.

    6. Once in recovery choose the wipe button and do a factory reset three times. Optional but recommended is to do a "Data" wipe. This will wipe all of your internal storage so MAKE SURE you backed up first like i said in step #1 above! Then go to "advanced wipe" and select all of the partitions EXCEPT micro-sd card and internal storage. Internal storage is optional but recommended on first time flashing Lollipop.

    7. Choose the "Install" option and select the rom "Hybrid_Sprint_N910PVPU4COG5_Deodexed" from either your internal or external micro-sd card. It will flash the rom and give a confirmation once completed.

    8. Press "Reboot" then "reboot system".

    9. Initial rom setup will take around 10 minutes and remain on the yellow Sprint Spark screen for much longer than what you are used to. Let the phone setup/optimize for at least 10 minutes and the screen WILL eventually turn off OR show the setup wizard screen once it finishes.

    10. When you see the screen turn off, you can proceed with the setup wizard. Once finished with setup wizard, you will be prompted for the "connections optimizer". Quickly set it to what you want and close it. That's it! You're done! Setup your rom as usual. Enjoy![/B]

    WARNING: Flashing anything on your device is done at your own risk. There is no way myself or any other developer can guarantee that flashing this ROM or any other file will not brick your device or otherwise cause some other type of damage. This is just a standard warning. I am not responsible for anything that you do to your device. However I do take great time and effort to ensure all of my work is tested and verified good before releasing to the public.

    I've been doing mods and discovered that apktool is causing some glitches in SystemUI either during the decompile or the build process. I think it's being caused byan xml in resources because if I decompile classes only then build the glitch isn't there. So this goes to show that you really have to pay close attention to apktool as well as the Lollipop deodexers because things can get broken inside the apk/jar and you won't even know it. So i'm now going to do things a bit differently when decompiling & building apk's and jar files.

    I've been trying to get a couple of mods working for 5.1.1 but it's being difficult and causing FC's. Long press volume to skip music tracks and the flashlight toggle are both giving me a hard time. I'll keep working on them. All other mods are working fine. I hope to be able to release an update in the next few days. I will be asking for a couple of testers when that time comes.

    Enough about that. He simply copy& pasted and left out a space in the quote containing the exact line he needed to edit and if you pay attention to what you're reading you can figure it out quite easily. No need to drag it out.

    I'm working on audio mods right now. I already got the advanced utilities section in settings along with the apps & icons resized prefrectly. It's coming along.

    First off i really love this rom man and really appreciate the time and effort you have put in to make this radical rom. Just wondering will the update include double tap to wake?
    I had plans to include this mod but it sounds interesting. However I would expect that it would definitely impact battery life. I'll look into it. Thanks for inquiring.

    Has anyone tried to use the enhanced messagin setup in thr stock messaging app? For some reason its stopped working between Saturday and last night. Moved from Freeza's Rom over to see if its some how Rom related or can be reset after clearing system/caches. Has anyone experienced this?

    Sent from my SM-N910P using XDA Free mobile app
    It works perfect on my phone. I enabled it and it verified and all that good stuff.

    Please add the Russian language in the next update !! I will be very grateful to you!
    If I can I will. Should not be too much trouble. however I don't want to add "unnecessary" languages that will take up space on the phone's memory. I'll look into it.

    3 thoughts:
    1) with the release of the note 5 and it's lack of ext-sd, removable battery, or any other significant upgrade over the note 4, TX's work has much more significance for a phone coming up on its 1yr mark. I think a lot of people like myself plan on holding on to this phone for a while. With the 5.1.1 update, freeza's work, and TX's ROM, I'm going to trademark the term Note 4 1/2! It really does feel like a new phone and I get to keep my 128gb ext-sd!

    2)At 8:40 am, I'm at 30% battery. That's after I was unable to charge last night and moderate to heavy use the day before. Impressive!

    3)@Tx_, I think it may be difficult outside of exposed, but is it possible to get a mod to disable waking the phone from the home button? I mean, I don't wear skinny jeans or anything, but sometimes the phone is on when it's in my pocket and I'd love to disable it.
    Thanks for the awesome feedback! Yes I can disable screen wake with the home button but I would rather make that a flashable zip since not everybody will want that mod. I've done it before so it should be no problem. The catch is that I have to do that mod AFTER I finish all of the other mods that are in the same file. the reason is because if I do the mod "disable screen wake home button" mod I will also have to make a separate flashable zip to re-enable it. So it only makes sense to do this once every other mod in the same file is done so not to break anything or miss out on any future mods.

    We have very bad weather today so I'm stuck inside working on this ROM. I thought this news might make some of you happy. LOL!
