Yeah. You tried do the right thing. Unless you go ask the person, you can't know how to make them happy.

Anyway, thanks for releasing this. smily_headphones1.gif I just got my phone a month ago, so I'm not ready to flash it yet. I have never done that before, but I have dabbled with running Linux server, so I'm not completely scared of it.

If you don't mind me asking since you understand the code, are the tweaks to the DAC output significant? Or is some of that hype? I already turned up the gain on my headphone amp in the gain config file with the stock Samsung. That helped my Grados because of their low sensitivity.

Below is a pic of the cable hooked up and wiring diagram of each connector. 



could you please show a parts list of your cables and possibly links to parts? I would love to build my own, or if you're willing to build and sell that would be cool too ;-)

Nice! Post in the picture of portables thread if you haven't already, need some more Android rigs to represent :)

 

 

In other news, my Pico arrived this afternoon. Moment of truth any second now when I plug it into the Note 2...

post #245 of 469

Woohoo! HeadAmp Pico USB DAC/amp back today - can confirm it is now working perfectly with the Note 2 and International S3! Thank you so much Justin.

 

Also, FWIW, his fix also allows it to work with the Nokia Pureview 808 (it didn't before).

 

It doesn't work with the HTC Butterfly, and I suspect that is because it can't output enough power - it is obvious that HTC have severely curtailed USB OTG power-output in that handset (one presumes because its battery life is **** enough already). Will try it with a powered hub and see...

Sorry but won't be building again unless the need arises or selling as it's a one off thing.

But here you go my part lists...

 

1. 4mm Expandable braided sleeve

This http://www.ebay.com.sg/itm/4mm-Black-Expandable-Braided-PET-Sleeving-Cable-2m-/250893392122?pt=UK_BOI_Electrical_Components_Supplies_ET&hash=item3a6a6958fa#ht_2414wt_906

or this

2. Micro USB Connectors

this http://www.ebay.com.sg/itm/5-sets-USB-Male-plug-Connector-Micro-5pin-Cover-/180695335915?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2a124803eb#ht_2373wt_906 

or this

http://www.ebay.com.sg/itm/10x-Angle-USB-Male-plug-Connector-Micro-5pin-Cover-/180695860094?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2a1250037e#ht_2373wt_906

 

3. Mini USB Connectors

http://www.ebay.com.sg/itm/10-x-Mini-USB-Plug-Male-Socket-Connector-5-Pin-Plastic-/180391553917?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2a002cab7d#ht_2040wt_906

 

4. Some Spare USB cable lying around/not use cut up to your desired length.

 

5. Some super glue or plastic glue...I'm using Selleys multi grip to glue up the housing/soldered cables and the sleeve inside the USB connector housing.

 

If you want an easier way would be to buy a short micro USB OTG cable. Cut the female portion out right at the end

and solder just the four wire to a mini usb connector and your done. If you wanna make it look nice than sleeve it up and use

heatshrink tubing too.

Good luck and do show your finished cable once done.

 

PS : sorry for the off topic all.

I have to thank you for your off topic ^^ I might be trying it later next week.

My apologies for the derail, l liked the work done on the cables, again sorry. So hopefully this is not another derail. I inadvertanly did the verizon update trying to shut the phone up as emails were coming up in the middle of the night, so this turns into a multi part question.
1. Am I screwed now on rooting?
2. I run my audio out usb to my Amp/Dac, and I'm not sure what the whole Voodoo is. Is Voodoo for the 3.5 headphone out or does this effect the usb out too?
3. Currenetly I have a FIIO E5,6 and a D-Zero.
4. Headphones are 15 year old HD580 stock, still sound great, 20 year old MDR V6 with Beyer Velour Pads, Ety HF3, and stock Triple Fi's
5. Class 10 Sandisk 64Gb card.
I've always ran PowerAmp until this phone, now I'm using Neutron player. Much less hiss. I was using an OTG cable and Monster Mini USB cable. Now I've got a Micro-Mini OTG cable.

What would be your upgrade with a $200-250 budget, keeping the Note 2 as the DAP? Better Amp, Triple Fi cables, HD cables? With my Nexus the D-Zero made a difference; I'm not hearing much of an improvement with it on the Note 2. I carry a 2nd gen 32Gb Touch, and a 3rd gen 8Gb Nano with a FIIO LOD.

I want to carry one source and Amp, Dac. I will carry different cans as needed for the enviroment to hear surroundings or block them. I've been th9inking of different cables for both the HD's or the Triples. I want my Note to sound it's best.

thanks

Thanks.

Is Note 2 + Westone 4r sufficient or addind UD100 + Fiio e11 will make a difference? any one have tried it?

post #250 of 469

My two cents below, I am starting in this world so I can only recommend you in the Android side.

1. Am I screwed now on rooting?
    This is not an iPhone, in theory you should still be able to root. It is possible that the root solution is still not available (I don't know because I don't own the Verizon version), but in any case, you could revert your update through odin and equally root.
2. I run my audio out usb to my Amp/Dac, and I'm not sure what the whole Voodoo is. Is Voodoo for the 3.5 headphone out or does this effect the usb out too?
   Voodoo gives you more control over the internal DAC of your phone. If you are using an external DAC that it might not be worthing it, but you don't loose anything in trying it. You could revert to stock in any case, and you will get higher volumes through the 3,5mm jack and the possibility to pre-EQ the signal for all the audio outputs (not by app). In my opinion the upgrade is great. I will report back a comparison when I get my Fiio E17.
    Regarding the USB output I think Voodoo doesn't have anything to do with it, but Voodoo is only a driver that comes with the kernel. The kernel itself can benefit you in other ways (undervolting, overclocking, etc). One of those upgrades can affect your USB audio output, in a positive or a negative way. You have to check the kernel before flashing it. Each kernel is different.
3. Currenetly I have a FIIO E5,6 and a D-Zero. This is ok. I am far from being an expert.
4. Headphones are 15 year old HD580 stock, still sound great, 20 year old MDR V6 with Beyer Velour Pads, Ety HF3, and stock Triple Fi's. I suppose this is ok as well
5. Class 10 Sandisk 64Gb card. This is very sweet! ^^

Yesterday I heard the comparison between my note 2 standard vs my friend note 2 by pass with kernel  

 

As player I use Neutron and he use power amp 

 

note 2 + neutron SQ better than his kernel with power amp 

 

but after he download neutron player ,the SQ is the other  way round 

 

note 2 + kernel bypass + Neutron SQ better than my note 2 standard + Neutron

 

anybody know how can I. Bypass my note 2 with kernel ?

 

Please advise

you dont bypass a kernel you flash it meaning you need to root your phone with either a stock rom odeox + kernel(of choice) or a rom with build in kernel .. actually on my im using a rooted stock odeox and kernel and modded the volume output to 57db and use noozxiode + my EQ setting on stock player

post #253 of 469
Is the difference in rooting that big? Also, does rooting involve any potential ramifications? Noob questions that have been answered potentially?

After using the Neutron Player for a while now, can I just say that the UI is extremely annoying? :D
