LowSoundFixer is an app for fixing a low-sound bug of JellyBean (4.1.2, 4.2.2 and 4.3) and KitKat (4.4.2) ROMs for HD2, Desire, NexusOne and any similar QSD8250 legacy devices.

Download: LowSoundFixer_v1.0.8.apk

Features:
  • Detect the following events, play Silence.ogg to fix the low-sound bug (e.g., low notification sound), and kill the app itself to save memory.
    • end the phone call (added since v1.0)
    • unplug a headphone (added since v1.0)
    • disconnect Bluetooth headset (added since v1.0.1 and removed since v1.0.7)
    • disconnect Bluetooth SCO audio (added since v1.0.2 and removed since v1.0.7)
    • detect a missed call (added since v1.0.2)
    • connect Bluetooth headset (added since v1.0.4 and removed since v1.0.7)
    • connect Bluetooth SCO audio (added since v1.0.4 and removed since v1.0.7)
    • connect Bluetooth A2DP (added since v1.0.7)
    • disconnect Bluetooth A2DP (added since v1.0.7)

Known issue:
  • Connecting to a Bluetooth device may cause the low-sound bug and this app CANNOT fix it yet.
    (The workaround is to make a call after disconnecting from Bluetooth.)

Changelog:

  • V1.0.8
    • Support Android 4.4 KitKat.
  • V1.0.7
    • Remove BluetoothHeadset.ACTION_CONNECTION_STATE_CHANGED and BluetoothHeadset.ACTION_AUDIO_STATE_CHANGED events.
    • Add BluetoothA2dp.ACTION_CONNECTION_STATE_CHANGED event.
    • Fix the low sound bug after using Bluetooth. (Update: Bug was not fixed yet.)
    • Update class LowSoundFixer to implement Runnable interface.
  • V1.0.6
    • Fix a bug that the low sound bug may not be solved after unplug the headset.
  • V1.0.5
    • Replace KeypressSpacebar.ogg with Silence.ogg (thanks marco.palumbi for Silence.ogg)
    • Remove background service to save memory (LowSoundFixer is no longer a background service)
    • Register static Receiver in AndroidManifest.xml to replace the feature of background service.
  • V1.0.4
    • Add event: connect Bluetooth headset
    • Add event: connect Bluetooth SCO audio
  • V1.0.3
    • remove MainActivity and clean some debug info
  • V1.0.2
    • Add event: disconnect Bluetooth SCO audio
    • Add event: detect a missed call
  • V1.0.1
    • Change the app name from LowSoundDetector 1.0 to LowSoundFixer 1.0.1
    • Add BT headset disconnection event
    • Add new icon
    • Add MainActivity so you can run it as a background service after installation.
      (After reboot, the app will run as a background service automatically.)
    • Play app built-in KeypressSpacebar.ogg instead of system's default notification sound.
      (This sound is more quiet.)

I have updated my signature and changlog of LowSoundFixer on XDA to redirect to this page.
So XDA users may see this webpage some day.

I noticed, thanks. I see you also posted v2.4 info there.
It should get a little attention (at least from those who actually read). ;)

Guys, I have tried LowSoundFixer V1.0.7 and unfortunately, like all of the other versions, I still have low sound issues after using my car's bluetooth. I posted similar on XDA but got no responses from others so given that Tytung has now left XDA (their loss!), I thought that I would post here in the hope that a definitive fix can be found. ;)

I don't use BT the same way in the car (I use Tasker to disable ringer while connected to BT) so I cannot say for sure but I still experience occasional low volume of a notification sound. No idea what triggers it and 99+% time it seems to correct itself after some time. You got me. :?

Don't be put off by this. It is easily fixed by making a call after disconnecting from bluetooth. Tytung's ROMs are the best and the latest JB has even more features that you'll like. Go ahead and flash - you won't regret it. :D
