Default How to remedy Audio vol. on 4.2.1?

anyone found a way to boost overall volume on Nexus 7 aka grouper WIFI model with the latest 4.2.1? there is apparently a hardware issue that has prevented google from an "authorized" fix thus far...

If you've found a good tip/trick/app/mod for this please chime in

Volume+ is the only app I know that can help but unfortunately it's still incompatible with Jelly Bean.

what i would do is install it on my phone (i have gingerbread) and when the app updates itself on my phone i will see if it will finally install on my N7. or you could try to side load it from there website. (its free on there website i think its audiohacks.com or something like that.)

Lightbulb Fix - ! get this

Wow... for anyone searching this topic, for Nexus 7 with 4.2.1, go quickly to the Playstore and install Noozoxide.
Oh My!

I got wind of this through some of the purely developmental/experimental/custom fixes for sound. Found it on the google play store and thought, may as well try it, I hate the sound as-is.
I figured it would have no effect or maybe not work at all. WRONG!

just do it before its pulled or becomes really expensive... its worth a few bucks.

the same outfit had a player up on the app store but google pulled it. I think Noozoxide is the meat of the issue, however - the player was just a control point. the underlying audio processor etc works as best I can tell with all my apps: music player, MX PLAYER [that was the biggie for me... very poor audio due to nex 7 shortcomings] ... the diff is incredible.

still playing around with settings, and the only caveat is that nothing can fix the nexus 7's builtin crappy speaker... it is lame. go listen to an ipad mini and you'll see.

get this: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.noozxoidelabs.eizo.rewirepro&hl=en

Noozoxide is great, I use it on my Phone, I'm sure the last time I tried to download for the N7, it said my device wasn't compatible; if it is now, thanks for the heads up.

Noozy was pulled because it was basically a carbon copy of zPlayer.

Wow! Even the N7 speakers sound much better! Can't wait to get home to try my S4's. Google Music sounds better than Poweramp at the moment!
