3 Second Call Silence in Gingerbread Fix!

Are you happy with your Gingerbread device? Everything on it works perfectly? It’s your pride and joy and you’d never give it up for the world? This is what everyone thinks about any piece of technology they own, until something goes wrong. The “thing” going wrong for a lot of people recently is an audio cut out within the first 3 seconds of answering a call from a friend.

This can be extremely frustrating. Everyone hates having to repeat themselves, especially with something as simple as “hello”. But thanks to XDA member j4n87, who has kindly discovered a fix floating around XDA and has linked everyone, you can rid your Gingerbread device of this painfully annoying issue.

Finally a fix for 2-3 call delay!

When you call someone, your call partner can’t hear you for the first 2-3 seconds…so mostly your “Hello…” gets lost.
Thought that was only an issue, related to the hd2 users running android…but it seems a general gingerbread issue for various devices.

If you’d like to flash this update onto your Gingerbread device, and support the developer, head on over to the original thread!

 

Edit: Thanks to XDA member jyxent, there is a patch for the ones who were having trouble with this fix.

The libaudio fix linked to was for the wonk on the Nexus One. The libaudio library is hardware specific and may cause issues on other devices that don’t share the same processor.

I’ve submitted a patch to gerrit that helps with the call delay here:

Thank you jyxent for letting us know!

PSA: You Can Optimize Your Note 4’s Recents Menu & RAM

The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management. But it'll be a long time...
