@gamer- This particular patch just changes a plist file (preferences) for the sounds; so yes, it can be undone. I believe the uninstall routine for this particular patch puts the values back to normal. Why you still running 1.1.4? This patch won't work on other firmwares, old or new (well, it might work on 1.1.3.

Hi, I have been trying to download this patch but encountered messages such as: 1. Error Package download failed 2. Can't find host Both times I have been using my wireless netowrk to download this patch, could it be a connection issue? Thanks very much.

Does anyone or does iClarified know how to TRANSFER CONTACTS FROM the iPhone to Windows (Vista) Contacts. (the reverse is known)...... It would be nice to know as one updates the iphone contact list regularly and back it up to windows. Thanks

wen i try to download this patch, it says somethin like "main script execution failed" wat the heck is that?...i have 1.1.4...i need help, PLEASE!!!

I can't find any increase in volume after installing the Volume Boost 1.1.4....
DistortedLoop - April 15, 2008 at 4:09pm
The patch is great, really bumps up the volume without having to edit those plists manually like we were early on in the iPhone days. My issue is that it bumps up the system sounds (like email arrivals, keyboard clicks, sms notifications) to the point that they are painful (especially email notification) if wearing headphones. Any idea which of the actual keys in which plist changes the system sound levels? I'd like to manually tweak that down a bit. Also, just for curiosity sake, in the RegionalVolumeLimits plist, there's 10 cryptically labelled keys. Are those for different regions, or maybe one of those is what I'm actually looking to address in the prior question.

sorry it does work, just have that stupid clear film that ( came with the iphone) is covering the audio part of the iphone. remove that clear film, volume works great thanks. this is a great site!

your answer fixed my problem. so glad you wrote this, before i did something stupid to a 400.00 phone. thanks. i removed the plastic to the ear piece
DistortedLoop - January 3, 2009 at 4:42pm
Well, you just did something stupid to that $400 phone! Apple put that clear plastic over the speakers for a reason: to keep dust and moisture out of the device. Lots of complaints in the past by people who poked those holes and then got dust under the screen. Good luck with it, I hope no bad comes of it.

GeekBoy2000 - March 26, 2008 at 9:48pm
Can't say I notice a *lot* of difference, but I do believe it's louder, and no issues with the install. Thanks!
Chuck - March 19, 2008 at 10:26am
The reset worked - I have all sounds and functionality back. I appologize for the sarcasm in my previous post. Thank you for still offering to help - even after I was an ass. :)
iClarified - March 19, 2008 at 1:44am
@Chuck, if you loose sounds it is mostly due to another application interfering with the patch. Do a reset all settings...
Chuck - March 18, 2008 at 8:45pm
well, my phone is completely worthless right now and I now have to do a complete restore to get any sound back. The iPod feature doesn't even work - it won't play any songs. Thanks for this app..... :/
theodore - March 15, 2008 at 11:57am
I have the same problem as Dasutin...lost all my sounds!
theodore - March 15, 2008 at 11:56am
i have the same problem as Dasutin......no sounds at all!
Kea - March 11, 2008 at 12:33pm
