Balance The Sound Coming From Your Speakers In Your Transformer

Unfortunately, many people who got the first batch of Asus Transformers got them with a slew of problems. There have been glitches in Honeycomb, connectivity issues with the dock, and a few others. However, the one that stood out the most (or at least the one that people have complained about the most) is the issue where some Transformers have unbalanced audio coming from the speakers. It seems that the sound coming out of one of the speakers was much lower than that of the other one, with some people even getting devices with one working speaker. This was thought to be a hardware issue in the device, but XDA Recognized Developer freeza decided to start tinkering with his for a while and not only discovered the real culprit (thanks to the help of XDA member verkion, but also found a solution as well. The best part is that he wrote a guide on how to solve this issue. You will need to have your TF rooted and you will need to use ADB (root explorer can be used as well, according to the dev). Lastly, you will also need a text editor like Notepad (if you are doing this directly on your device). Please read the guide over a couple of times before proceeding in order to ensure that you fully understand what you are doing.

Please leave your feedback if this worked for you.

Unfortunately I was one of the many people who have received a TF where the right speaker was significantly louder than the left. The reason for this is unknown by me as I’ve not disassembled my TF, and there are conflicting answers as to whether or not it is a software or hardware issue. However, with the help of fellow XDA member verkion for the initial fix and pointing me in the right direction, I’ve tinkered around enough that I feel comfortable sharing with the rest of the community. Let’s get started.

You can find more information in the guide thread.

CloudPlayer: DIY HiFi Music Streaming Solution

In our Helpful Guide to Music Streaming Services, we mentioned several different services that offer ways to stream catalogs of music directly to your device. While each service has their benefits and drawbacks, the common theme among them is to give you access to a vast library of music without the need to store your own, and charge you a monthly fee for the privilege. But what if you already had access to your own catalog of music? Sure, there...
