Hello to all my loyal acolytes
I, your supreme lord of delusional grandeur have returned.
Ok, ok, I have a problem, I own a Samsung Galaxy S3.
I was comparing the headphone output of My S3 to my Wife's iPhone 4, turns out the iPhone is much louder.
After trying various volume booster apps in play store, I found they did next to nothing.
After spending the day (I may as well have) searching for a way to manually boost the volume, I discovered that the default.gain.conf file needs to be modified.
(the file is under system>etc>) I have tried various methods and file explorers to mod the file, (all it needs from what I've read is to change the value from 50 to anything up to 67) To no avail.
I tried rooting the device in the hope to change the attributes to the file, nothing. after getting frustrated to the point of smashing the thing to bits, I decided to recover the phone back to stock ROM.
Has anyone here figured out a way to mod this file?
I cannot do it through windows as I cannot access those folders regardless of what I do, rooted or stock, (I've tried showing hidden and system files and all that)
I know it's not exactly the end of the world as we know it, but if someone has managed to do this, could you spare a minute to help?
