    When using browser I can click the links in the OP just fine but when using tapatalk some of them keep taking me to a Precedent ROM thread, is that an issue with the links here or is it an issue with Tapatalk? Which end needs troubleshooting?

    Yeah, I remember you saying that before.  I don't know why.  For the links I usually go to the webpage, copy the address and then paste in the OP.  I don't use tapatalk so I don't know about that.  I'm not smart enough to know why it does that only with tapatalk so if anyone else can help out, it would be appreciated... ???

    Thanks daddy... I've amended the OP by laying out step by step instructions and links for Xposed, instead of just links.  Hopefully this will be easier for people to use than what I previously had.......

    My cousin just had me root and flash her centura last night so that she could have tethering and hotspot. Its been a while since I messed with a centura, I need to increase the volume and can't remember where I edited on mine to increase volume, at full volume its not very loud.

    Viper4Android can increase the volume a lot and make it sound so much better...especially with all the Impulse Response Samples you can download...

    Not sure about editing with build.prop or which system folder or the like...

    That doesn't increase the volume across the board does it? You can you can barely hear it even 4 feet away when its booting, isnt there an edit for volume somewhere, I remember finding a volume edit when I had centura. She has ARC 1.3 but will probably be switching to one of the TC ROMs, we'll try 1.3 then go to 1.1 if she doesn't like 1.3.

    Yeah, it increases it across the board (including headphones if you want; there are separate settings for headphones and speakers).  Just enable "extra-loud" and you can increase it by slight, moderate or extreme.  Really makes a huge difference in volume.  You can also adjust the Max Gain and Max dB Output to also increase the volume more (there are good instructions on what all the settings mean and recommended settings at their webpage; I'm pretty sure I put a link in the OP).

    I'm pretty familiar with V4A, just didn't remember it increasing volume in everything.

    Yep, everything, except bootup sound I think because it doesn't run until after you boot.  But can always increase the system sound level for that...

    Yeah, that's what I was after but don't remember how I did it on the one I had, in system volume is OK but the boot sound is pretty weak, she likes the boot sound for ARC1.3 so she wants it to be louder.

    Maybe edit the audio file with an audio editor.  I usually use Ringtone Maker app to make ringtones and such and it has an option to increase or decrease the volume of the original file, but if you increase too much it gets distorted.  I actually did that for my bootup sound. 

    Also, V4A definitely increases the ringer, notification, media/music, system and alarm streams across the board. Not sure about the voice call stream although I bet it does.

    On the computer I use "Audacity" to edit audio files, including volume, seems to work pretty well...

    I installed V4A on this centura and when prompted to install the driver and selecting to install it gives an error saying the busybox installed isn't working, I installed busybox from the play store over the one in the ROM but its still not working, it says to verify that its fully rooted also but root checker confirms the device is rooted correctly. What is my issue here, I had no trouble doing this when I used it on the centura I had.

    If I remember correctly ARC 1.3 uses Superuser.  Superuser isn't supported by V4A, so if this is the case install Supersu and then try it.  Supersu works much better on ARC 1.3 anyway.  I assume your using BusyBox by Stericson?

    I see I have V4A version 2.3.3.0 FX installed.  Maybe its a problem with the newer version of V4A v. 2.3.4??? Here's a link to 2.3.3.0, give that a shot...BusyBox by Stericson, right??

    I installed V4A on this centura and when prompted to install the driver and selecting to install it gives an error saying the busybox installed isn't working, I installed busybox from the play store over the one in the ROM but its still not working, it says to verify that its fully rooted also but root checker confirms the device is rooted correctly. What is my issue here, I had no trouble doing this when I used it on the centura I had.

    If I remember correctly ARC 1.3 uses Superuser.  Superuser isn't supported by V4A, so if this is the case install Supersu and then try it.
    I installed superSU before I installed V4A. What else?

    I see I have V4A version 2.3.3.0 FX installed.  Maybe its a problem with the newer version of V4A v. 2.3.4??? Here's a link to 2.3.3.0, give that a shot...BusyBox by Stericson, right??

    Yeah, I got the right busybox, I'll try that version of V4A and see how it goes., thanks.

    No problem,  If it doesn't work, we'll keep looking...

    When I installed mine I was on ARC 1.3 as well and had no problems...

    Also, might want to try to install as user app first, and then if properly installed convert to system app (if you didn't do it that way)...If I remember correctly that's what I did...


    Btw, I noticed in their instructions it says something about modifying build.prop.  I did not do this when I installed it...

      The dog is the god of frolic
    N-Psycho-P-D-uh?,

    Here is the boot sound for ARC 1.3 that's somewhat louder than the default boot sound.  It has an mp3 extension but its really an ogg file so just change the name to PowerOn.ogg

    Not sure if it will be loud enough for her...Hope its not too distorted as I made it over the sounds of my neighbors lawnmower :D (If it is I can modify it)

    Also, I noticed in the Centura sound/volume settings there is no option for system stream sound level, which I believe controls the boot volume sound.  I've been using "Volume Master Free" from the playstore  and it gives you a few additional volume option settings than the default settings do, including system stream, so your cousin could turn up that setting to make boot sound louder, I'm pretty sure...???  You can also unlink the notification and ringer volumes with the app...Just throwing stuff out there (I'm really just procrastinating from work I should be doing ;D)...

    edit>changed the boot sound.  It was a little distorted so I modified it in case you downloaded the 1st one...

    Speaking of Centura kernels, I have a question I've been meaning to ask for about a year now but keep forgettin'.  I've noticed that no matter what app I use, I can always adjust the min. freq., but never the max. freq.. It always stays at whatever the OC frequency is.  Is there a way to adjust the max. freq., or is that just the way the kernels work?  I was thinking that it would be cool, for example, to be using the 2.0 Ghz kernel but be able to "underclock" it to 1.2 or whatever through an app instead of having to flash a different kernel.  The apps I've tried all have a setting that you can adjust the max. freq., but it seems the kernel doesn't allow it to.  I have no idea how these things work, but I am only a Grasshopper after all..... :D
