Yesterday (28/03/19) i updated my intex aquafish from -> using @olf sfos_upgrade script and executed post-sfos_upgrade script as well. The update was smooth and not much manual work involved.

Then i noticed the volume from speaker is zero when playing media, not able to increase/decrease the sound using Volume hard keys ( no animation of volume on the screen ). No ringtone from top sound grill when receiving calls.

To my surprise, when receiving calls ( vibration still works ) i'm able to hear volume from bottom ( if put on speaker ) and top speaker grills.

PS: I read TJC for relatable issues and found none, so raised new question. Not inclined on downgrading/factory reset.

Thanks in advance.

I have had audio issues on Intex AF Sometimes I can't hear anything from ear speaker during phone calls. I have to switch to bottom speaker in order to hear anything. This I one of the issues which made me switch to XA2.

I have not upgraded my Aqua Fish to

Did you edit /etc/pulse/mainvolume-listening-time-notifier.conf? Or maybe you applied the volume warning patch?

The thing is, I had the same issue after removing "lineout,hs" from the modes list in that file (that's exactly what the volume warning patch does). After restoring the original file everything worked as normal.

BTW, setting timeout to 0 in the aforementioned file successfully disables the volume warning without any issues (as far as i can see)

  1. I haven't installed Volume Warning ( AFAIK ), i used to unapply patches when manually upgrading but this time i used script. When i realized this issue after upgrade, i had removed one patch ( Three finger gesture for increasing/decreasing volume, i believe it's by @Alina ).
  2. I haven't edited any configuration file. The only thing i tried was restarting pulseaudio service from sysctl.

Currently the configuration file reads as below:

timeout = 1200
role-list = x-maemo
mode-list = lineout,hs
