Hello guys today i recieved a Jiayu s3 3gb version. Great phone.


The only problem that i have is that the microphone un calls is terribly low. I have to scream to have a conversation. How can i turn up the microphone volumen?

heyo mate,


i have the same phone and i can see whats troubling you... i have the same problem, i think this can be "fix" with editing the phone in the engineering mode in the phone.


you can enter this mode by typing some code in the dialer but the easiest way would be to download jiayu.es from the playstore and after that do the following :


- enter the app


- go to Tools ROMs


- then chooose Tools


- and here go to Application Engineer Mode


Once you are in the EngineerMode slide to the right and choose Hardware Testing


Here chooose :


Audio


Normal Mode and here chooose under "Type" Mic


Now here are the values that determines how low or high the mic/speaker/ will react... you will need to edit the Levels from Level 0 to Level 6.


I reccomend that you note down your regular values of the Levels just in case the setup dont work you can retype the original values back.


Try with this setup and see if it will works for you :


Level 0-255


Level 1 to 235


Level 2 to 215


Level 3 to 205


Level 4-195


Level 5 to 185


Level 6-175


After all the changes restart the device and see how it goes... I hope this fix your problem with the Mic!


I just test this setup on my Jiayu and seems to work just find!



Cheers!

After flashing the zip I cannot change the MTK engineer mode values form Audio anymore, they get reset everytime.

Sorry for the double posts. I am using the TF rom, 5.3 latest. My issue is after flashing the audio optimizer (since i did not do a nandroid backup beforehand :( ) now after I edit an audio value under the engineer mode, after pressing set , going to the previous menu, and looking at the value again it restart to the original one, not even after a reboot. Now i do not know how to undo the change :(

try booting into recovery and wipe cache and dalvik cache...if that still does not fix it...contact the developer over at needrom..or read the user comments to see if there is a solution...last resort...factory reset
