Mad About Your Transformer’s Low Volume? Try This…
For those of you who have been around the world of smartphones for long enough, you will likely agree that most, if not all manufacturers set the volume of the devices at a very low level, no matter if it is the speaker volume, media volume, or in call volume. We always have a hard time hearing to others because of this. The ASUS Transformer unfortunately did not escape this fate as the volume coming either from the speakers or even from the head phones is annoyingly low. Whoever, our devs came up with a solution for this a while ago. Most sound parameters are contained in csv files that can be easily modified and replaced. For instance, XDA member meww tried the same method that he had used in his G1 and surprisingly enough, he claims that it worked. Results being reported in the thread are somewhat mixed as many people cannot even push the file into the device, but it is worth a shot if you are up to it. Needless to say, you must be rooted and you need to have some basic knowledge of adb to do this.
Please leave feedback if this worked for you.
All credit goes to Meltus from G1 forum. I use this on my G1 and gave it try my transformer and it worked great.
