Hacking iPod touches to increase volume

Post by Screw_Michigan » Fri Apr 20, 2012 1:16 pm

One huge drawback of iPod touches (and prolly phones) is that Nanny Stater Steve Jobs rigged the players so that you can only turn up the volume so loud. I can only listen to albums on my iPod touch and not professionally recorded bootlegs because the volume limiter is rigged to say low.

From what I've read, the only option is to jailbreak the pod/phone to jackup the volume. Anyone done this before? Is this a good idea?

I have not restored to a previous date. Nor did I check the fluids.

You are truly one of the worst pieces of shit to ever post on this board. Start giving up your paycheck for reparations now and then you can shut the fuck up about your racist blasts.

A political celebration isn’t a constitutional right any more than the concert or attending a spectator sport.

1. Sell your iPlod on Craigslist.

2. Thank me later.

A music player that doesn't use MP3, has a proprietary format (that seems to land them in court every so often), made from vastly inferior hardware, and costs tenfold what an equivalent MP3 player does?

What a genius electronics consumer you are.

I wouldn't worry about it, Screwed -- the batter on the Ipod Touch is going to brick so fast, any mods you make will be short lived anyway (I know a few dorks with Touches... none of whom paid a dime for them... and every last one of them has a junked battery... ALL of them).

Marty, you read me like a dime store novel. And your advice is quite sound -- sell it to some other fool who's looking to be parted from their money while it's still in the fleeting stages of its working life. Those things truly are crap...

Just like everything else that shit company sells to idiots. If it weren't for seriously stupid people, that company would have gone under a long time ago (pretty much as soon as they got away from the Motorola processors and started buying outdated Intels... and Intel still won't sell them anywhere near the top of the line stuff).

If they're buying something that says Apple on it, then yes.

You can install OSX on a PC... why buy an inferior chunk of hardware for 3 times the money? "Stupid" is the only expaination.

Since I have no interest in a tablet, and don't currently work in computers/IT in any capacity, I'm not much up on what's cool.

So I'll go with... "one that doesn't say Apple on it."

Some things never change, Dins. Steering away from Apple will never be wrong.

The Nexus 7 will be a great buy at $200 or $250 for a 7" tablet with plenty of power. If you aren't a power user and just need a tablet to do things at home, read ebooks, check email, play some games on something bigger than the 4" phone, at $200 this device is almost impossible to beat. At 7", its also an awesome device to carry with you where ever you go. Its Wifi only but you can cache google maps with it and use it as a gps in the car, carry your grocery/shopping list with you. Lots of stores now offer wifi in part or all of the store so even a wifi only device can be fairly useful. Plus if you have a data phone, new data plans often allow you to use your phone as an access point for any other device.

For a 10" tablet, I think the ASUS Transformer is still one of the best tablets hands down because of the Keyboard dock that you can get and use it as a Netbook.

I have enjoyed my Nexus 7, and I plan to also get a Nexus 10. I haven't used an external keyboard, but if I did need one, I am sure Bluetoof would be the way to go.
