Sony has a couple of useful software enhancements that have found their way onto other devices. For instance, there are a plethora of ROMs being released with the Sony Bravia Engine integrated into them. Now, the Sony XLoud Engine is making its way around the bend. XDA Senior Member XxXPachaXxX has successfully ported the XLoud Engine for anyone who wants it on the HTC Desire HD.
The method is pretty run of the mill—drop a few files into some /system and some build.prop changes. Even so, be sure to carefully read the instructions and, as always, be sure to have a backup handy in case something does go wrong.
The developer has even been kind enough to put up the method for reversing the modification if something isn’t going quite as expected and includes only a few steps:
How To ROLLBACK to stock:
- DELETE ALL files, LISTED in FilePack.rar
- Erase lines for xLoud in Build.prop
- Put libaudioeffect_jni.so from your ROM to /system/lib/ (set permissions rw-r–r–)
- Full Reboot
For anyone looking to try out the Sony Xloud Engine on their Desire HD, you can find the full method, download links and even a flashable zip for those who don’t want to install it manually in the original thread._________
