AudioAmp: Fix iPhone’s low Ringer Volume

One of the complaints of the iPhone has surprisingly been iPhone’s low ringer volume. It seems to be well below the standard, in terms of volume, established by other mobile handsets.

Most of the users have blamed iPhone’s tiny speakers to be the culprit of this problem. However I had reported that the culprit in fact could be the audio itself and not the speaker and you could use a hack to fix this problem.

I had even published an iPhone tip on how to resolve the low volume problem of your iPhone’s ringer by using a a loud, high frequency audio custom ringtone rather than ringtones currently available on the iPhone.

However, Erica over @ Tuaw had figured out that the Celestial framework folder (/System/Library/Frameworks/Celestial.framework/) had a Maximum Volume property list. She had observed that adjusting the Default -> Default value up to 0.99, up from 0.7 had boosted the iPhone’s speaker volume.

iPhone hacking genius Nick "Drudge" Penree has apparently made use of this iPhone tip from Erica to develop a native iPhone application which will do all the work for you and thus save you of all the hassles. The iPhone App called AudioAmp is available as a package in Installer.app.

Let me know if the iPhone App helps!

Thanks Nick for the tool.

    Doesnt work with 1.1.1

    Doesn't seem to make a difference with 1.1.2

    Since the Installer says 1.1.1 or 1.1.2 are required, what's the point? Obviously those of us with 1.0.1 or 1.0.2 need it most!

    First of all my iPnone seems to work just fine. Maybe my hearing is going bad. I tried to use the app but I could not tell the difference on my iPhone.

    Cool hack but I'm still on 1.0.2, so it's not as cool as I thought it would be.

  • spam

    The so called fix actually doesn't work at all, not only there is no louder voice but sometimes when receiving a call the phone only beeps once and thats all …

  • Darren

    Did not work on FW 1.1.1 for me. In fact after I installed I could not change my volume at all, had problems playing back visual voice mails and receiving calls.

    Another way which worked absolutely is to import your ringtone to an app like Wavepad, use the "increase volume" option (I go the full 300 %)and export it as a m4a. Make a copy and convert it to m4r. You may have to use itunes to help convert it to an AAC file before changing it to m4r.
    I now have about 15 songs and sounds that play very loud as ringtones. And a big thanks to all the brilliant minds who opened the iphone up for us more dense people.

    Hi all!
    I have no access to Wi-Fi internet so I put the app to the path and restarted my phone and after that my iPhone has no sound except iPod music! I'm going to restore it but I hope it works! Does anyone know the reason or the way to fix it?
