What about the USA S3 and the Pico?  Is using a powered hub the only solution?
 

post #2342 of 5575

There is no interworking problem between a US Galaxy S3 and a Pico.

 

The interworking bug between an international Galaxy S3 and a Pico was fixed: no more need to use a USB 2.0 hub.

OK, update on the Padfone Infinity - USB audio works with the USB Audio Recorder Pro software.

Thanks

That's the rom.  Surely there's a port of it on the AT&T S3, though probably not 3.55 yet.  i9300 users are lucky in that one of the main developers for Paranoid has the device.  So we get updates unusually fast.

For anyone with the AT&T Galaxy S3 (Model I747), I just want to let you know that the ROM I'm running on mine has native support for USB audio output and works with my FiiO E07K. It's called RootBox and you can get it here:

However, the USB audio support is a bit sketchy and there's a special procedure you have to follow to get the phone to properly redirect audio to USB. If you don't do it this way the phone will freeze and you will have to hard reboot.

 

1. Open your music player on the phone and pick a song you want to listen to.

2. Start playing the song with the audio being directed through the phone speaker (It can be muted; doesn't matter).

3. While the audio is playing connect your USB DAC.

4. The audio should pause on connection and reroute to the DAC.

5. Press play and enjoy!
 

I hope this helps anyone who is struggling to find a ROM for the AT&T S3 that supports USB DACs.

USB Audio Recorder PRO 1.2.0 is released with support for the HRT microstreamer. Perhaps more DAC's that were recognized but didn't play or played silence may work now, so let me know if yours does. Also added a 'Next song' button and the files in the play list directory are now played back alphabetically sorted.

 

I also did some more investigation in adding a service that other music players can use to stream their audio through USB and it is looking good.

Thank you for the great work and effort your putting into this project.

Yep, there is, but it's version 3.1something and doesn't have USB audio, I just checked. Super sexy ROM though. I've had to miss out on AOSP / CM goodies and be stuck with a Samsung based ROM, because that's the only one that supports USB audio :( Hopefully he'll port the 3.55 version to the AT&T variant soon!

You're welcome. I think you'll like that ROM. It's a mix of AOKP, Paranoid Android, and Cyanogenmod. Lots of great features and everything can be customized. Not to mention the guy that develops it is awesome.

It works fine on my Droid Razor HD to Fiio system. I still have the problem of having to restart the app to get it to play without distortion but when it clicks into working it works well...

I installed the rom, but this doesn't seem to be working. After I plug in the DAC (while the audio is playing) it pauses, but after I unpause it, no sound comes through my headphones. And then when I unplug the DAC, my phone freezes and I have to hard reboot.

I just got an Optimus G Pro E980 for AT&T, out of the box, FIIO E17 (ALPEN) and Behringer UCA202 are working fine.

FYI folks: major update to USB Audio Recorder Pro today - says it fixes the Headstreamer and *should* or *may* fix many other DACs that were previously not working.
