Xd Plus v1.11 headphone speaker bug
« on: August 04, 2018, 04:52:18 pm »
So I just updated to v1.11 and I got the bug where you have to plug in headphones to get sound coming through the speakers.

Is there a trick to stop this?
Or just wait for a new firmware?

Cheers

Actually, don't bother trying the flashing. I'm experiencing the same thing, all versions of Cleanrom are affected.

I initially reported in another thread, that you could use an app from the Play Store to manually redirect audio between the headphone and the speakers. That is somewhat true, but I discovered yesterday there's actually a bigger problem.

I was in public, and wanted to use my device through headphones. Plugging in headphones causes sound to come out of the speakers. You can use the app to redirect audio to the headphones, but the speakers always stay on. There's no way to silence them. So currently there's no way to use the device in public through headphones without affecting everybody around you.

PsyOps, any update from the dev on spinning a patch with the available fix? I previously thought there was a viable work around, but it turns out there isn't.


Try installing CleanROM 1.10.0.3

Also, I just tried, and I can't get any audio over the HDMI out. Not really surprising I guess, obviously the flags in the code for the audio control are backwards and affecting multiple things.

It worked for me!  Thanks 😃 I have sound!

I did do it by doing a clean install (user data checked)

I also now have a much lighter/cleaner os

Thanks and also obviously to the devs.

I?m currently copying my roms back to sd.

I?ll get some shuteye whilst that?s happening (it?s just coming up to 3 am Uk time 😅)

Glad to hear it worked for you, I wasn't so lucky. Kind of odd that it worked given that 1.10.0.3 doesn't contain the fix, but nonetheless!

I wonder, did you do a fresh install (user data checked)?

Yes, I did full flashes each time. The difference is I started at .3, then went to .1... No difference for me with any of the revisions. Like I said though, it's been confirmed that none of the currently available Cleanrom versions contain the fix, so the issue I'm seeing must be different than what you were seeing. In my case I think I need the fix.

Clean rom patch, read this over: https://www.patreon.com/posts/20854772

This is only for people with the newer hardware revision XD-VR. Anyone with the headphone bugs have that model.

Just install the latest CleanROM version, the issue is fixed there.
The reason its happening in the first place is because GPD silently rolled out a new XD+ with a different headphone jack.

CleanROM addresses this by flashing a kernel that has been patched to fit the user's hardware revision.
Essentially... if you use 1.10.0.4 or higher, you are good.
