    Let me start by saying that I want to modify my Mixer_Paths.xml file located at /System/etc so I can increase the headset Volume of my LG G Stylo. I want to know, as long as I have a Nandroid backup on TWRP with System and Data selected, can I modify the file and if it corrupts and I have no sound, can I restore the device back to the way it was before I modified the Mixer_paths file and everything work the way it worked before I modified it? Please answer, as this is vital to me because I want to make my headphone volume be loud enough to have it at lower than 50% volume and it be loud like an iphone. Don't ask me why, I just do. Thanks in advance :)

    Before you mess with those settings, have you considered the Dolby or Cyanogen AudioFX mods?

    I done that patch and didn't even backup, but to simplify your complicating of things a lot more easier, just rename the the original old xml file to xml.old and then do the patch, if it doesn't work delete the new xml sound patch file rename the backup (xml.old) back to regular .xml and reboot your phone, then back to working order.

    Hello, and thank you for taking your time to help me out with this, really appreciate it :) I have one question tho. Did you do it with an LG Phone? cause the first time I did this, it broke the sound.

    OMG IT WORKS!!! Thank you so much lol, an angel sent from Heaven :p xD Thank you so much, I changed one value from 84 to 93 to get it as iphone-like as possible lol, that along with Viper's XHIFI Audio will do Excellent :D but IT WORKS! I'm so happy now, cause I did this to my old phone without backup, and it did not ruin it like it did this one, but with this mod, it bypasses LG's Shitty levels xD
