    For some reason I do not have any volume/sound when I run an app, such as music, videos, games. But I do have volume for the ringer and notifications.
    Any ideas?

    Have you tried turning the volume up while in the app?

    Okay, I fixed the issue. I had to do a boot recovery.
    I think the there was an app that had made changes to my system files.
    And I believe it my have been Adobe Air that did it, but I am not 100% sure.

    That shouldn't be possible at all, unless you have root. Even then it can't get those permissions unless it asks through SuperUser.
  6. I had the exact same problem as you vandyman. Sound was fine on ringer and notifications, but no sound for apps etc. from the rear speaker. They were working fine through headphones though. I even did a factory reset and that did not fix it. It fixed itself overnight though.

    I thought it might have been water getting into the phone when I put on a wet apply screen protector since it happened at the same time, but it seems other people are having the same problems without the water.

    I hope its just a software issue!

    Checkout Volume+ it helps with the weak volume levels on the GN

    ^^^^^^ That will not work if you have no volume at all.

    I fixed the problem as I said before there were some apps not playing nice together.
