soooo...things are developing extremely fine!
supercurio has worked hard and added many goodies to his "voodoo sound"-tweak. i'm sorry to say, but it is still hard to implement these tweaks on a samsung galaxy s I9000 (and derivates*) and you should be familiar with:
> flashing a new firmware (ROM) and
> flashing a new kernel
> working with "Odin" (an opensource flashing software) and thereafter working with CWM (clockworkmod recovery)
> downloading an app from the market (that would be the easiest part of the work^^)
the time and effort you put into applying this onto your device is worth EVERY single second, i promise. and it's absolutely free!
(but feel free to donate to the mod's if you like what you hear^^)
*it's also working on GT-I9000M, GT-I9000T, Vibrant T-959, Captivate, Fascinate, Mesmerize, and Showcase (all depending on which kernel you use)
again, here is an updated link to supercurio's thread if i haven't put you off so far:
[BOUNTY] Anything related to Sound: features or fix requests. v2 available (mic!)
The "Voodoo Control App v0.3" (free!) is the dedicated app on the android market (see the screenshots in the link above). with this app you can control the voodoo-soundtweaks which are implemented in various new android-kernels for various phone-models.
i have the international version of the galaxy s, the GT-I9000. i cooked my own ROM in the so called "romkitchen" (it's for galaxy s and captivate and the how-to's are linked in the posts 1-3) with "hardcore's speedmod kernel" in his actual version K12Q implemented and all the other apps and tweaks i wanted to include! here's a beginners overview about the choices you can make in romkitchen, a tremendous tool!!
sadly, this is only for advanced users, too. but a month ago i knew nothing about android smartphones! but now, after a lot of reading though, i have an extremely speedy android smartphone AND a next to perfect sound (without a dedicated headphone amp)! btw, i use creative aurvana live! headphones with the glaxy s.
cheers and good luck^^
edit: here's a list of the things that are already implemented or will be implemented in future releases!!
