Rooting grants you the leeway to fine tune, tweak, and bend your device to whichever way you please. In one of those personal quests for useless knowledge, I discovered a (simple) way of getting Dolby Digital sound on your Android device.
Works perfectly with earphones plugged in and gives you that spiritual, higher level music listening experience. For this to work, you must be rooted, and have custom recovery installed, then follow the steps below:
- Download DolbyDigital.zip here
- Boot to recovery mode by switching off your phone and pressing down Power and Volume Up button. (Note: the combination for booting to recovery mode might be different according to devices.)
- Click on Install Zip and select the DolbyDigital.zip
After installation, reboot your device. Plug in earphones and enjoy music with better production.
There’s also an alternative audio booster called Viper4Android which you can download from here
