AUDIOPHILES GET IN HERE!
One of the many reasons why rooting is still Popular..

NOTE(Old):
Your phone's Dolby Atmos would not be functional (but its dual speakers still function well) in other words, the Dolby Atmos in the settings would be turned "Off" only.


Note(New): I had an error installing the driver but itndoesn cause any problems, I backed up the audio config file. Deleted, restarted and installed the driver from the app. It was successful. I tried bringing back a copy of audio conf. And jollah I made the built in dolby atmos system of Nokia 6 work with the Viper4Androi and I swear, the phone is like a mini stereo with awesome quality. Just a few tweaks and you're great.

For those who doesn't know what's ViPER4Android:
As we know that the vipe4android is one of the best android voice enhancer app. Not just voice/music enhancer but the best thing you can do by viper4android is, improve music quality. This app works on same principal and applicable to both kinds of music as well as video, and also works to games, almost every app on your phone!


How to Install ViPER4Android on Nougat
Make sure you’re rooted and have TWRP recovery installed on your device.
If not yet, follow Hikari Calyx's guide for rooting your Nokia 6 https://forum.xda-developers.com/nokia-6/how-to/guide-how-to-flash-custom-recovery-root-t3702354

Just tested it on my Nokia 6 TA-1021 (March 30 +8:00)


1. Download the ViPER4Android_2.5.0.5_guitardedhero.zip file from the download button above and transfer it your device’ internal storage.

2. Boot into TWRP recovery and install/flash the ViPER4Android_2.5.0.5_guitardedhero.zip file to your device.
Reboot phone. (If you can't go to recovery mode just like me, use "#Rashr" app from playstore it has a function that can reboot you to recovery mode)

3. Download/install a root file explorer app (we recommend ES File Explorer/Classic root browser).
└ On ES File Explorer, swipe-in from left and turn on Root explorer feature. And don’t forget to grant root access when asked.

4. Now using your root explorer app, go to /vendor/etc/ directory on the device and rename audio_effects.conf to audio_effects.conf.bak.

5. Open ViPER4Android FX app on your phone (it installed when you flashed the zip file in step 3 above).
You’ll get a notification to install V4A driver. Select YES.
It’ll take some time to install V4A driver, and while doing so it might even look like it’s stuck but you don’t worry. It’s doing its job and will finish soon.
└ If Android gives an error that the app has stuck/stopped. Be sure to select the wait option, don’t force close it.
Once you get the Driver installed message on screen, reboot your device.

Is there any audiophiles here?
I would like to know if anyone has safely installed Viper4android to Nokia6
And if it's causing any problems with its dolby atmos system..



I wanted to know because tbh, the HMD global didn't make efforts for a nokia music app and it comes without a preinstalled equalizer. While Samsung even has their SoundAssistant and SoundAlive equalizer options. 3rd party app sucks. So this is the best option I only see, the mother of all equalizers for music.

Wait, I don't understand... What's the difference between Vioer4android and Viper4ARISE and Arise itself...

And which of those causes bootloop, which ones are safe to install through twrp?

Viper4android is the original audio mod you were asking about. Some guys from created a collection of different mods and apps and made them work as best as they can - this is ARISE. They included Viper4android and modified the configs so it fits into arise - this is VIPER4ARISE. The main difference for the Nougat user is that the installation is simpler. You just place a text file on the internal storage which tells this twrp zip what to do and Flash through twrp - done. This means that you can easily install a variety of sound software with only minimal problems.
If you install arise however, the pre-installed Dolby from Nokia breaks. If you install Dolby Atmos from arise, you will end up with a bootloop.
I hope this was understandable.

Also, have you tried installing Viper4android? Does it also cause the dolby atmos (speakers) of nokia 6 to malfunction? Or any side effects it might cause? I want the dolby atmos speaker function to remain while having installed Viper4android.

The speakers remain perfectly functional. But DOLBY ATMOS WILL NOT WORK after installing viper through arise at least. I have never installed stock viper so I cannot provide information about this.
