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.

Do you store them on an external hard-drive or keep them backed up to an online cloud service like Flickr? Let us know what your favorite way of storing old photos is and why.

Diving into the April 2015 Material Design Update

Before the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, the Holo Design guidelines served as the official reference for Android design, right from IceCream Sandwich to KitKat. However, updates to the guidelines were few and far between, leading to a lack of synchronization between Android design and current UI/UX trends. Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...

New Cyanogen Partnerships Bring Privacy Concerns

New Privacy concerns have emerged regarding Cyanogen’s latest announcements, primarily the inclusion of email app Boxer and that of a multitude of Microsoft apps, including Bing services, Skype, OneDrive, OneNote, Outlook, and Microsoft Office. The concerns arise when you look at both announcements together. At face value they may appear to be the beginning of Cyanogen’s plan to “take Android away from Google,” however there is certainly something more nefarious occurring. Along side the partnership with Microsoft, Cyanogen also recently announced...
