I proudly presents you:


Xnext™ WalkMan



This modification is made to give the best possible audio experience on Sony Xperia Devices.

Unique features

  • ALSA custom sound control, crosscompiled with Qualcomm Compiler
  • updated opus, vorbis and flac codecs
  • stripped audio effects, for reduced audio processing (and better sound performance)
  • 32bit / 96.0khz (Xperia 1ii / 5ii)
  • 24bit / 96.0khz (all other devices)
  • everything is logged, you can check what this modification is doing ( /system/usr/share/alsa/debug )
    • execute with a terminal as root:
      • check ( audioflinger dump )
      • test.sh ( place a wave audio file on your internal storage, name it test.wav, then execute the script, this will play your file direct via aplay )
      • you can also use aplay, arecord, alsactl, amixer alsaucm directly, if you are familiar with it ( if you mess something up - its your own fault, but you can ask for help anyway )
  • custom Dolby Atmos configuration
  • audio output power is greatly improved, so be careful with the volume

    I want to share the new Xperia 1 Mark 3 Firmware, with everyone who is interested.

    By the way, I took a look at the new Xperia 1III firmware and it seems like Sony is bringing an equalizer back.
    Further I was able to port all qualcomm sound effects to the kona platform.

    Also be aware that I have configured the audio as I see fit. So be welcome to give me your opinion, especially if you want to increase the bass output.

    So stay tuned and have a nice day.
