Voodoo Soundpatch for Asus Transformer

The sound of the SRS speakers in the Asus Transformer has been loaded with issues and haunted by what many believe are hardware defects. However, over the last couple of weeks, our devs have been putting out fixes and patches for things such as the balance of both speakers. Since things are working now, it is time to start improving them a bit and this is just what XDA Recognized Developer supercurio had in mind. According to him, the tablet from Asus comes loaded with a good set of sound drivers that make it compatible with one of his most infamous fixes (if you come from the SGS world, you will likely recognize this in no time), Voodoo Sound. This is being made available for Transformer users and tweaked specifically for this device by the dev. According to him, this will allow the TF to play either through the speakers or headphones, crisp clear sound without crackling or breaking.

There are two versions of the app, one which will require a kernel with modules to enable this and the other being a stand alone. Please get the one that is most suitable for you. Also, please leave some feedback.

Hi everyone!

Asus EeePad Transformer hosts a very nice audio codec by Wolfson that powers both the headphone and speaker output.
Its the ultra low power WM8903, implementing a midrange DAC (Wolfson-scale) that outputs a clean and musical signal, and my favorite Class W headphone amp, that gives a clean controlled and accurate output, and is able to drive full-size 300 Ohms headphones without distortion.

You can find more information in the fix thread.

New Snapdragons: Some Context & Contrast

It hasn’t been a good year for Qualcomm so far. Every device featuring the Snapdragon 810 has had a less-than-stellar fate, be it because of overheating complaints or actual decreased sales. HTC is in a particularly worrisome situation, and Sony’s Z4 is slipping down Japanese charts just over a week after its release. The G Flex 2, Mi Note Pro and Z3+ all saw complaints as well. Even MediaTek is seemingly getting an advantage over this.   But a particularly...
