Like it Loud? Boost the Note 3’s Maximum Volume

Yesterday, we featured a quick recovery-flashable modification for the Sony Xperia Z1 that boosts the device’s maximum volume. As it turns out, however, Xperia Z1 users aren’t the only ones who like it loud.

Although the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 has a more than adequate built-in speaker, some still would prefer to boost its maximum volume. And even for those who think the internal speaker is loud enough, they may not be satisfied with the maximum volume on their connected audio devices such as dock devices and HDMI speakers. Thankfully, XDA Senior Member jovy23 created a similar mod for the Note 3.

Currently, the modification only works on Snapdragon-powered Note 3 devices (N9002 and N9005), rather than those featuring the Exynos 5 Octa 5420 processor (N9000). For supported devices, the installation is as simple as flashing a recovery-flashable zip. And for the curious, the zip replaces the snd_soc_msm_Taiko_CDP file within the /system/etc/snd_soc_msm path with one of three versions.

There are three different versions for three different boosted volume levels, as well as a revert-to-stock zip. We can only assume that this works only on the stock TouchWiz ROM and its derivatives, but if you’re running a Note device, you probably wish to stick with this software anyway for the S Pen support.

Make your way over to the modification thread to get started.

Should You Get Wear? Wearer’s Practical Observations

Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
