    All the credit goes developers of Viper4Android and especially the creator of Material Viper4Android, Viper4713

    Remade the thread for Material Viper4Android, because this particular version is updated for Android Lollipop and Marshmallow


    This is a discussion thread for Viper4Android, mainly for Android Marshmallow. I created this thread to reduce offtopic discussions in a certain custom ROM thread [​IMG]
    (mainly because of @jstepa [​IMG])

    Also remember that I am not the developer of V4A, just a user who was simply blown away of the sound quality

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    You can discuss anything concerning Viper4Android for Marshmallow here (Issues, sound setups, mods etc.)
    We will mostly discuss Marshmallow here, but other Android versions are fine

    Tagging some people who encouraged me to use V4A: @CAuday, @@punto, @Nicolas_g134 (might have forgotten some :( )

    You can tag these people here for questions, they are far more experienced in V4A than I am :)

    correct me if you find something wrong in my posts :D

    Before you start installing:

    Your SELinux usually must be set to "PERMISSIVE" http://forum.xda-developers.com/devdb/project/dl/?id=12506

    Also your system partition must be in ext4 for it to work (thanks to @@punto for the tip


    For Marshmallow, you need to install BusyBox (Not the one by "Stericson") https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=ru.meefik.busybox&hl=fi
    Some Custom ROMs may have this already installed, some may not
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Requirements
    Android Version: 5.x Lollipop - 6.x Marshmallow
    Root: Yes
    System Write Protection: Disabled (Usually already disabled when using a custom kernel or for HTC devices if you have S-OFF)
    Busybox: Yes
    SELinux: Permissive

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Install Instructions
    (User App/APK Method)
    1. Place APK on your Internal or External SD Card.
    2. Install the APK with any File Manager.
    3. Start V4A and install the driver of your choice.
    4. Disable LPA if prompted.
    5. Reboot Device.

    (System App/ZIP Method)
    1. Place ZIP on your Internal or External SD Card.
    2. MAKE A BACKUP, VERY IMPORTANT! Things can happen.
    3. Use TWRP Recovery to Flash the Zip File.
    4. Start V4A and install the driver of your choice.
    5. Disable LPA if prompted.
    6. Reboot Device.

    On both occasions, remember to grant Storage permission to Viper4Android on Marshmallow. You can do this by going to Viper4Android's app information and choosing permissions tab.

    Developer's writings

    I am not the original creator of V4A, my user name is simply a coincidence, I have been using my user name throughout the web even before I even heard about this App, regardless enjoy this Material Edition!

    Recommended Music APPs
    Google Play Music
    PowerAMP Music Player
    Spotify
    Pandora Radio

    Recommended Audio Equipment
    These are some headphones I personally recommend for an exceptional audiophile or close to it while still being a fair price, I recommend checking Amazon for prices.

    Over the Ear Headphones
    Audio Technica ATH-M50x
    Sennheiser HD 558
    Sennheiser HD 598

    In Ear Headphones (Wired)
    DUNU DN-1000
    Sennheiser IE 80

    In Ear Headphones (Bluetooth)
    Jaybird X2

    Ear Tips
    Comply

    Getting PowerAMP To Work
    PowerAMP will work on Normal and Compatible Mode.

    For Normal Mode you must Disable BOTH Direct Volume Control & BT Direct Volume Control even if you're on wired headphones, under "Settings>Audio>Advanced Tweaks" to Disable.
    For Compatible Mode you are free to use DVC but you must
    Enable MusicFX under "Settings>Audio>Advanced Tweaks", then under Tone/VOL you can trigger the MusixFX button and V4A will work.

    This thread could have been on Custom OPO Software category, no need for it to be Off Topic?
    There are discussions about browsers etc.

    No, the thread is just in the section "OffTopic", as there isn't really a better section for this, maybe the mods could move this to a different one :p
