Beats Audio Hacked Onto Photon 4G
Many people love Beats Audio because of Android’s lack of a built-in equalizer, and it can be said that some Android phones need Beats Audio to deliver a music experience that isn’t so, for lack of a better word, bland. While certainly not for everyone, Beats Audio has cultivated a following from various users.

The modification itself consists of the Beats Audio libraries that were pulled from XDA Senior Member RockoDev‘s ROM, which already included the software itself. The mod has been successfully tested on specific versions of CyanogenMod 7 and CyanogenMod 9. Installation of the recovery-flashable update.zip is simple.
