Does Skype use the in call volume, or the media stream?
Skype uses the "in call volume".
This didn't work unfortunately..
The main problem with this issue I have to remove my headset anytime I want to receive a call outside since the dialers low volume is easily overpowered by mild ambient noise. It's fine through the phone's speaker, but it's a pretty large inconvenience.
Then you should try Andy's advice and see what's in the market.
I've tried a couple of those apps and neither fixed the issue sadly.
And this is just through your headset?
yeah.. there's no noticeable different between skype and the dialer without the headset.
This may be a stupid suggestion, but since it apply exclusively to the dialer, maybe try a third party dialer? I use ex dialer, for example.
I tried this around the time I tried a few different volume apps, but it didn't help. It all leads back to the same call screen.
I appreciate all the advice btw.. Hopefully I can find a fix to this.
I tried it with a different head set and the result is the same.. There's a definite lack in volume using the regular dialer vs. skype with headsets.
When did this issue start? I mean, have you updated to the new rom yet?
I've updated to the rom provided in this thread.. I used everything except for the "green machine theme".
I noticed the issue today while making a call when leaving the post office.. I initially thought something might have been wrong with the other persons phone, but I made another call just to check and I confirmed there was an issue on my end.
It was a little windy and there was a light drizzle, but nothing that should have made me strain to hear the person on the other end.. This headset is pretty loud and I can definitely tune out the majority of the outside world using it.
I read some comments at the blog link and it seems I wasn't the only one experiencing the issue:
I did some extensive googling before posting in the thread, so I already had tried the DSP manager advice, but it didn't work.
Alright, time for the old battery trick. Yank the battery, and hold down the power button for 30 seconds. Then put the battery back in, power up and test. If that doesn't work, it could be a bad flash.
Removed the battery and held the power button for 30 seconds.. Tested again and no change.
This does not work. I have Quick Settings and I still have to use the rocker-arm volume trick (up then down.. to prevent my eardrums from being blown out).
If memory serves... Jerry said this was a bug in the rom. Someone please correct me if I'm mistaken.
There is a bug in the ROM, but he's already tried that trick. I'm starting to think it may be a bad flash, since it didn't start until he updated to 1221.
@Idun, did you check the md5 checksum? Your download might be a tad wonky.
Nope I definitely overlooked that when I was installing. I used the instructions from the "Simplified Root + Recovery + Custom ROM" thread to do the install.
Go back to Jerry's op in this thread, he has the checksum listed. If all else fails, redownload and reflash. Oh, make sure you aren't doing anything with your phone during the download. That greatly decreases the chance of a bad download. Or download on a pc then transfer the zip to your phone, thats what I always do.
What exactly do I do with the checksum number? I actually did the stuff in the OP and put it on the SD card.. Seemed a lot faster that way.
It's a method of verifying file transfers for corruption. Check the wiki, lots of good info.
MD5Checker is a good app. Choose the zip file for box 1, and paste the number into box 2. Hit the 'check' button.
The numbers didn't match.. Looks like I got a bad download
There's your problem.
I just finished going through all the processes for a reflash.. I verified that I had a good file, but the issue still remains even after the reflash.
You are now officially beyond my ability to help. I'll leave you in the very capable hands of more senior members here. Don't worry though, we'll get you sorted out.
We have not made any change that should affect V6, but we also don't support it's use.
I never got v6 to work, so...I wouldn't know.
