    Hello everyone this is my first thread I will actually contribute something to you all... WOOO!

    Confirmed working on:
    Android 2.2(Thanks sellers86!)
    Android 2.3(Made for)
    Android 4.0(see below for a separate guide)

    [HL]I DID NOT MAKE THIS! I SIMPLY TESTED IT AND WANTED TO SHARE IT WITH YOU ALL

    ALL RIGHTS/CREDIT/LOVE GOES TO THE DEVELOPERS OF THE AUDIO MODE(Upgrade imo!)
    [/HL]

    [HL]I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR WHAT HAPPENS TO YOUR PHONE[/HL]

    This mod will install the Advanced Linux Sound Architecture(ALSA) along with the beats audio engine.

    I always use my OV for music, and this mod made my ears shoot out rainbows after hearing the quality! The hiss is GONE, I can FULLY hear ever little bit of sound that the song plays using the LG EAR BUDS! That is why I am calling it an upgrade, and not a mod; IT IS THAT GOOD!

    What I noticed
    Audio is more clear
    Bass is deeper, but not over done
    The EQ is more effective and balanced(Thanks to ALSA!)
    On low and high volumes I can clearly hear all parts of the song
    All sounds from the song is clear and/or hiss is gone/reduced marginally!

    tl;dr AMAZING

    Alright lets get installing

    You will want to go to the original thread to get the files: Beats audio + Alsa + AudioFXwidget - all you need for beautiful sound and real BASS! - xda-developers

    You want to download this file: beats_by_contradictor_V2.07_Alsa.zip its 2.08 MB

    1. Freeze/delete dsp manager(Make a back-up with TB or your own method!)
    2. Copy over the zip file to the root of your SD card
    3. Reboot into recovery
    4. MAKE A BACK-UP
    5. Go into mounts and storage and mount system and data
    6. Install the zip (TURN OFF SIGNATURE VERIFICATION)
    7. Reboot(Reboot will be a little bit longer, because android needs to recache the audio system!)
    8. Install Audio Fx Widget Link(Optional if you want a EQ)
    9. Enjoy!

    This guide was written to make this mod work on ICS(Thanks NiteStalkr)
    Here ya go!
    Code:
     This is a little unorthodox method that I found out to work, to get Beats Audio sounding superbly on 
    Quattrimus CM9 & AOKP.  I basically got bored, and flash happy, and figured "heck, why not flash several
    different Beats Audio files on top of each other, to see what happens." and I was astonished to find out
    what the end result was... SUPERB SOUND GLORY!!
    
    Here's what you do.. download the following 3 Beats Audio mods:
    
    Standard Beats .zip ( BeatsAudiob03414.zip )
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/atta...3&d=1331702446
    ALSA altered Beats .zip ( beats_by_contradictor_V2.07_Alsa.zip )
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/atta...6&d=1336982589
    Awesome Beats ( AwesomeBEATSv3.zip ) (note, even though when flashed alone, you get a half
    working DSP, when using this multi flash method, it will not install the DSP Beats manager, just 
    the Awesome Beats files)
    AwesomeBEATSv3.zip - 442.76 KB
    
    After all 3 of the above are downloaded, place on your sdcard, and reboot into recovery.
    -Wipe cache, and dalvik cache.
    -Flash "BeatsAudiob03414.zip"
    -Wipe cache, and dalvik cache.
    -Flash "beats_by_contradictor_V2.07_Alsa.zip"
    -Wipe cache, and dalvik cache
    -Flash "AwesomeBEATSv3.zip"
    -Reboot system.
    --NOTE!-- I'm pretty sure you do NOT need to wipe cache and dalvik cache before each install, 
    but I just installed one at a time, booted system, rebooted to recovery, wiped and flashed. You
    most likely ONLY need to wipe cache and dalvik cache the first time, and consecutive Flash 
    all 3.
    
    Enjoy the unorthodox method of getting "3x" Beats Audio on Quattrimus. :D
    -NiteStalkr, out.
    If you have a XDA account, its not that hard to thank the dev for all their hard work!

    Thanks to RockoDev for (MOD)Beats Audio(2.3+up)
    Thanks to contradictor from 4pda for experiments and new version with instruction.
    Big thanks to Lovetz for combining the two and making a flash-able zip!

    Thread cleaned. ThatGuyLurkin, many users seemed interested in the other audio tweak you were talking about, so feel free to make a separate thread to share it.

    Do you think this will work in quattrimus aokp??
    I'm currently using(or trying to use ) modded dsp manager with beats audio libs v.3 (Awesome Beats DSP v.3)
    It works, but force closes often, and its made for cm9 & aokp.
    And I was hoping this could be an alternative. Which is why I'm asking. And I don't have time to try for myself at the moment.

    I'm wondering if he meant sound glitch as in a slight Freeze+echo for a second.

    If it is, that's a problem with Beats on other phones in most situations.

    This is whats going on.

    I wanna say google redid the media/audio servers. Also these binaries are compiled for a 2.3 system.

    I haven't tried this yet (I'm running the GTR ROM currently). I did try both Quattrimus and BobZhome ICS, but both were a little buggy for my tastes. Tried the Beats Audio script that's floating around here on both of those and it worked flawlessly.

    I may try this one for the next ROM I install.

    Could you possibly provide a link to the one that worked with quattrimus?

    Borked my audio in general. I can't hear UI sounds and keystrokes, I can't even hear my device unlock or lock. Other than that, there's almost no difference in change when I use any equalizer.

    What happened to my post that was on topic? :/

    I said earlier, that I tested this out, and it didn't seem to do anything on Quattrimus (ICS).

    I just read through that entire thread, and read several reports of it not working with quattrimus... and omg those noobs arguing that you NEED good hardware to get good sound.. and all that babble about music production is completely irrelevant lol.
    I for one can get any low quality headphones to sound superb if I mess with an EQ. Its not always hardware, you need software too, without it, your hardware is nothing.
    But yea, thanks ilikechicken123 for providing that, maybe I can try others that were mentioned in that thread.

    How To Install Beats Audio Mod On Your Android Device

    It's BeatsAudiob03414.zip

    http://forum.xda-developers.com/atta...3&d=1331702446

    Installed it with each ROM I tried (GB and ICS) and worked for each one. There is an installer in Google Play, but this is the exact one you should use.

    Thanks, I will try this one right away.
    Just got done trying massbassbeats, it wouldn't install the flash able zip (error status 0), and 2 others from xda, that made everything sound extremely statically and annoyingly high pitched.

    Well it works, but I'll need to do a 24 hour comparison to see if it actually changes anything in ICS. (I've tested this on GB and is known to work.)

    None of these mods are needed if you tweak DSP Equalizer right, and have a decent pair of headphones.

    Tried using the dsp manager on a whole bunch of settings and this still sounds better.

    For most people, equalizers are just too much to deal with, and they need a set in stone superb audio tweak. While I personally have no issues at all with any equalizer, I like to expand my horizon. I could easily imitate beats audio in an EQ, however, I'd like to combine the two (awesome beats + dsp has its force closing flaw) to even further enhance beats audio.
    I'm an audiophile. Beats hardware sucks, but beats software is worth it. Sony headphones are better quality that beats headphones, and are way cheaper. Sony headphones + beats audio software = an audiophile such as myself, cream my boxers.
