The Samsung Galaxy S series of handsets have been selling like hot cakes all over the world. However, the phones have their share of issues including poor GPS signal and lag’ or stalling’ issue. The modding community at XDA came up with many different lag fixes’ but all these fixes had one issue or another.
However, one of the most talented developers in the Samsung Galaxy S modding scene Supercurio completely fixed the lag issue with his Voodoo kernel‘. Now, supercurio has come up with another awesome mod for the Galaxy S series of handsets Voodoo sound. The Galaxy S handsets are using a Wolfson WM8994 Sound CODEC which is one of the best audio chipsets for smartphones.
However, Samsung did not take the full advantage of the CODEC and wrote a badly coded driver for the chip, which is typical of them. Being a music junkie that supercurio is- he started working on improving the music quality of the Galaxy S devices.
The result Voodoo sound. He released the first version of the mod a few days ago. The first version of Voodoo sound allows users to increase the analog’ sound level by using the Voodoo App. By increasing the analog’ sound level, users will get the best SNR (Signal-to-Noise Ratio) and the lowest hiss possible while playing music on their phone.
Along with this, the first version of Voodoo sound also improves the FM audio quality and the bass on the Galaxy S by a huge margin.
I will suggest all Galaxy S owners to try out the Voodoo sound mod. They simply need to flash any kernel out there for the Galaxy S which has the Voodoo sound patch integrated. They can find tons of tutorials over at the XDA forums on how to flash a kernel on the Galaxy S.
