Hi all,

Just stumbled onto this thread, and a few weeks ago I was spending some decent amount of time fiddling with tweaking up the Redmi's output volumes as I found the default being too soft. I've had great pains doing research but nothing would actually increase the volume, the description shown on page 1 of this thread was similar to a couple others I've found online, including but not limited only to MIUI's forum.

What I am trying to say is, the actual volume output is actually NOT increased when following the instructions shown in the tutorial. However, it is absolutely necessary to perform the steps as already described first of all, and for those who have done so please try to continue with the following steps and make comparisons with what I've found out by trial and error which demonstrates how to actually INCREASE the volume output.

Below is the data I've manually saved, Note that you have to actually ENTER THE NEW HIGHER VALUES into the 7 volume levels to actually make use of the volume boost. We assume that the max value of 160 is desired, with the default being 128 as already mentioned, increasing the max volume from 128 to 160 in SIP in Normal/Headset/Louudspeaker mode respectively merely increases the maximum permissable threshold potential to 160, but it DOES NOT actually increase the volume to 160 until you tweak the following figures to make use of the increased potential:

Headset  ModelevelDefault value Sph/Sph2NEW Value

56
60
1
68
76
2
80
93
3
92
110
4
104
126
5
116
143
6
128
160
Normal/Loudspeaker ModelevelDefault value Sph/Sph2NEW Value

3
104
114
4
116
129
5
128
144
6
140
160


As you can see, the volume control has 7 levels of adjustment, and the default level is still limited to 128 at level 6, you will need to manually specify a higher level under Sph/Sph2 for levels 0 through 6. Only after doing this will the volume actually become amplified. Do it to all three modes of Normal/Headset/Loudspeaker where actual volume amplification is desired.

Theres a few things I've noticed when playing with the figures above, if you are adventurous, you can try this level setting, perhaps to convince yourself: 56, 68, 80, 92, 104, 116, 160. Note that only the level 6 volume is changed but with everything else remaining at default. Now try to slowly increase the volume from lowest to highest and notice how dramatically the last volume level increases on the depressing of final vol up button, but with every other lower volume setting actually working like default?

The quirky part to the 7 levels of adjustments is that the figures should ideally only be an increasing figure from preceeding lower level to next higher level, it does not have to be linear however. But if you tried something like 56, 68, 80, 160, 92, 104, 128 for example (note that 160 max volume happens on the 4th level), then volume control will only work for the first 4 levels, with the remaining 3 being held constantly at 160, despite lower figures of 92, 104, 128 as you hit the volume up button further. If you used 160, x, x, x, x, x, x, then basically volume will be on full blast right at the start, and at every level, regardless what X values may contain. This of course was part of my exploration observations which needs no attention. The NEW VALUES provided were made in linear fashion so the increase in volume is progressive like the default, but with objective of actually providing actual volume amplification.
Please kindly try it out, and let me know if it actually works for you, because it worked for 2 of my Redmi's and it was only with the luxury of having both side by side that I could actually confirm that I wasn't attempting to hear something that wasn't there by stopping short at the SIP stage. Hope my findings helps and DoktorekDee or anyone else could append more screen shots as necessary to complete the tutorial if it's deemed necessary.

just type *#*#13411#*#* and followed by dial button and you can get into the engineering mode that's exactly the screen showing above..   no other apps needed.

I've just bought this phone and was looking for the way to increase volume. Great post! Thank you! And as I see - Engineer Mode gives access to much more tweaks! Hope someone will explain its functions.
