  5. 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 πŸ™‚

  6. 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?
