This module allows the earpiece to be used as speaker, and mods the microphone pickup when recording video. Audio from earpiece might not be as clear as main speaker. This module was tested on Oxygen OS 4.5.5 version, but should work on other versions as well.

This module was originally created by @magura320 for OnePlus 3T. I have used this on OnePlus 3T and now ported to OnePlus 5. This is my first mod on XDA, so please be patient with any issues. Let me know if I have missed any credits and would be happy to add them.

Please visit OnePlus 3T thread for OP 3T downloads..

For those of us that use Viper to enhance the phone speaker, this might be a really bad idea. I can just see the tiny earpiece speaker dying under the extra boost given by other sound mods. This is a great idea though and I would love to use it. Is there a way to regulate the level of sound out of that top speaker or is it just opening the flood gates and using the same power as the real phone speaker?

I tested it and the earpiece is actually softer than the speaker. But you can definitely hear it when watching videos.

I did install this. I'm still apprehensive about turning it up too loud but it works well. It doesn't give off a ton of extra sound but it does sound more balanced which is nice.

Is the stock mixer_paths_tasha for op5 only or both 3t nd 5? It'd be great if we manually can edit the mixer_paths section if that stereo editing section is reveled.

Make it available for the stock recovery also

I've purchased op5 just now and I'm in no mood to install TWRP now but still wanna try this so can you make it available for flashing it to the stock recovery

Without flashing TWRP you can't have root. My understanding is you need root or TWRP to install this. Pretty sure (like 99.9999%) that you can't flash stuff like this from stock recovery... Otherwise what would be the point of TWRP in the first place.
