So I know we're still in the early stages of this device. But I just wanted to get a thread going for V4A on our device.
For those who came from the 6 Pro like I did, you're probably already aware of this, but for those who did not here's the current situation:
V4A was working fine on Android 12 but when Android 13 came around there were some issues. For most phones they got ironed out and at this point I think basically every other phone on A13 has V4A working EXCEPT for the Pixel 6/6 pro. I tried installing V4A myself on my 7 pro to no avail. I don't know much about the details of why it's not working or what's going on "underneath the hood" so to speak but I can only assume that whatever it is that's causing V4A to not work on my 7 pro is at least somewhat similar to the reason it doesn't work on the 6 pro. There are a few people trying to figure out the issue in a thread over in the 6 pro section on XDA which I will link here if you want to stay more up to date about what's going on:
As a side note, I did manage to get JamesDSP to work on my 7 pro, which is an okay alternative for the time being. Not exactly the same but it's better than nothing for sure. The main thing I don't like about it is that it doesn't auto switch profiles when you change between audio devices of the same type, for example switching from bluetooth earbuds to bluetooth car speakers.
