No DTS Audio after Rev 2 Firmware update

Postby bholdher » Sat Jul 21, 2012 9:39 am

Can anyone confirm that DTS audio playback is no longer working after the Rev 2 Firmware update?

Video playback works fine, but DTS audio is not played back. Video with MP3 audio has no problem.

I have tried a factory reset, and tried multiple video playback apps, including Mobo Player, MX Video player and the default player.

I can't confirm that, however, some have noticed that a number of working things are now not working or at least working inferior'ly once they did the new firmware.

Can also confirm that hardware decoding for DTS/AC3 is not working, and you'll need the likes of MX Video player to do the decoding of audio in software mode.. meaning you'll get sync issues. Pretty much all video playback apps (apart from the new stock player) wont be able to do Fullscreen without something like the Hide StatusBar apk.. check my signature to download.

Yes the new firmware has some issue. Here's the way to fix them (thanks to EXODUS):


1) DTS Audio broke
https://www.dropbox.com/sh/jy0aufhn1dqf ... 1.3%20.apk
(Download, copy to sd card, must run after installing for it to patch.

2) USB Keyboard (External) Enter Key unmapped *Edit with Caution. Always make a back up before editing.
Used ES Explorer and navigate to /system/usr/keylayout/Generic.kl - Update then save
KEY 28 ENTER
*Might need to compare old or other Generic.kl to see which other ones was changed.
https://github.com/android/platform_fra ... Generic.kl
See this one above.

3) ExtSD write Premission
Fix EXTSD write permission :: http://www.rikomagic.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=75

4) Power Key unmapped on AirMouse?
See #2: change key 62 to the following.
key 62 POWER WAKE


Sadly i couldn't fix them becouse i had another issue. Flashing damaged my internal SD card so i had to reformat it. I also couldn't change files that needed to be changed. Cose even chmod via root wasn't working on them.

just to say both links are currently showing 404 due to you not specifying the full path in your post.. but you've got to love GitHubs one.. ;)

If you're going to copy and paste someone elses post, least give Exodus, and Yangxi, over on Miniand, who originally posted the patch, the credit that's due.

As a security conscious user can I ask why the dts audio patch apk requires permission to dial phone numbers and access contact details?

Myself and couple of others have raised the same question over on Miniand. The guy who originally posted it, Yangxi, has not commented on that issue (then again he may of by now).. but its hard to tell if he was the one who made the patch in the first place. Personally it didn't work for me, as I had already replaced the stock gallery/2096p player app with actual google apps by flashing the most recent gaps via CWM. Also at the time of testing the patch I kept my Mk802 offline, and did a wipe and recovery after test.

Thanks, would be nice to have dts audio playback but I am wary of apps that ask for what seem to be unnecessary permissions. I shall try find a player that decodes dts.
