    Is there a way to stop if from turning down the volume? :hmmmm2:

    I appreciate that it doesn't want me to hurt myself, but I use the jack in my car and not in headphones so I really won't hurt myself. It's irritating to adjusts my volume back every time I plug anything into the jack.

    VM rooted :D

    If you're rooted and the xposed framework works with the F3, there is a module which will disable this.

    Alternatively a tasker profile or one of the other automation apps might work.

    The xposed framework is a tool which will allow you to apply mods to your device without the need to flash anything. More info can be found here: [FRAMEWORK ONLY!] Xposed - ROM modding without modifying APKs (2.4.1)(02.12.2013) - xda-developers

    Once you installed, there are additional "modules" you can download from within the app that can theme, add additional features etc.

    I'm currently running a couple of modules that improve my camera, remove certain persistent items from my notification bar and change my battery, signal and navigation buttons.

    The Xblast module has an option to activate/deactivate the safe volume feature:

    Whilst they're generally safe to use, it's probably best to have a way of returning to stock/factory resetting before a full boot just in case something goes wrong and your phone won't boot.

    well I'm doing something wrong. got the team and click the restart button and nothing happens. I didn't see any change between either theme. The volume tweek does not seem to do anything with the check box in either state.

    Is there something else that needs done?

    As soon as I installed xposed, it caused random reboots every hour.

    Is the module active in the modules screen?

    Be sure to turn off every other battery theming option you might have. You also need to reboot (or at least restart System UI).

    You can in the screen shot it changed something on the icon, but it wasn't working right so I just restored my backup in CWR.

    I did find a work around for the volume lowering.
    Volume Locker
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.hourdb.volumelocker

    It's not a perfect solution because if you really do want to turn the volume down you need to turn the app off (easier) or acknowledge the notification that the volume had changed and you want to keep it.

    The other good audio app I have is a volume booster. The audio was way too low out of the phone when compared to radio stations and my old phone. I liked the trial and bought the app
    Volume Boost (trial)

    Sorry Xposed didn't work for you, I've always had (and heard of others having) pretty positive results. :(

    At least you've got a solution though.
