Maximize Samsung Galaxy Note 2 incall, speaker & headphone volume

26

Samsung Galaxy Note II internal speaker volume too soft for you even on maximum volume? Want to increase phone incall conversation volume? Or Galaxy Note 2 audio output not enough to power your professional headphone? There is a hack to maximize all these volumes. How to do so? Basically, you need to increase incall, speaker and headphone output volume in default_gain.conf system file. Yes, root access is required in order to do so. You can edit them manually, or replace the file with pre-modified default_gain.conf from XDA Developer, EdgaBimbam. And don’t forget to make a backup first as always…

          No idea, albouet because I don’t have S3 Mini to try. Try to consult others at XDA Forum.

    Hi Jayce, I have the original Galaxy Note GT N7000. It too like other samsung devices has a low volume. Can you please help me with a similar way to increase the volume on my Galaxy Note? I cant find the file you are referring to within the system/etc folder. Please help, I googled a lot but couldn’t find any related article. Even xda doesn’t have a hack. Your help will really be appreciated. Thanks in advance :)

      Hi Luvcarzzz, does your Galaxy Note have root access?

      • Luvcarzzz

        Yes. I have installed Root Browser to fix this issue but I couldn’t find the file you have mentioned. Perhaps the original Note has a different file that has that information. Also I wanted to increase the overall volume and not just the headphones volume.

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce Ooi

          Ya, look like Note 1 is not using the same format as Galaxy Note 2 firmware.

          • Luvcarzzz

            Would you still be having a solution?

            • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce Ooi

              Sorry Luvcarzzz, no for the moment.

              • Luvcarzzz

                Umm… if you do come across a solution do let me know. Thanks anyways :-)

    I tried this on my Bell Mobility Note 2 and it screws up the bluetooth where as if you are the caller on the note 2, the person on the other end can hear you but you cant hear anything on the note 2. Anyone else have this issue?

    Update: I was using the “Ultra” conf
