Thread: volume boost for 3.0
06-22-2009, 12:18 PM #1volume boost for 3.0
will the iClarified volume boost for 2.2 work with 3.0?

I need this too. I tried to install for os 2.2, but no difference so it seems we need upgrade so this could work on OS 3.0

Just found this from ipodtouchfans
Some of you might have been using Volume Boost since the 2.x days and are missing it for 3.0. Here's the procedure for enabling it for 3.0. It's reported to boost the volume by 20%, which is a lot.
1. Start by downloading the attachment below.
2. Extract the contents somewhere convenient.
3. SSH into your iPhone through WinSCP or cyberduck.
4. Navigate to the /System/Library/PrivateFramework/Celestial.framework/ folder.
5. Locate the file RegionalVolumeLimits.plist and rename it to RegionalVolumeLimits.bak.
6. Copy over the RegionalVolumeLimits.plist file you extracted in step 2 to the iPhone's /System/Library/PrivateFramework/Celestial.framework folder
7. Set permissions to the RegionalVolumeLimits.plist to 0777.
8. Reboot the iPhone.

Whatever program you use to ssh , u also need to set permissions to that file you just put in the iPhone. In this case your setting permissions to that .plist file to 0777. Now I'm wondering if I use disk aid and then mobile finder to set permissions to 0777

In WINScp right click the file, and click properties. Then at the textbox at the bottom type 0777. It should be 0634 or something close to that. But change it to 0777.It takes 15 kepypresses to type "wow your such a fag" but 1 click to thank someone.
A download takes a while, so why not type "Thanks for the download" every once in a while instead of wasting time.

Hey ya, I'm seeing the text box that being discussed to change the permission but I am really wondering what it does.
I right clicked on the default plist and it's permission is 0644. So could ya explain what changing it to 0777 does?
I have been altering plist as experiments over time and now I think I've been missing something important all along
Thanks for your time.

As far as I know, the CHMOD are essentially the settings that a file has that tell it which user or usergroups have access to it, and which kind of access to it. In *NIX based operating systems, these users are the admin, root, etc. The little number just represents a certain set of permissions for the specific file. 0777 on a file allows for that file to be Read, Written and Executed by every single user, admin or not, in the operating system. 0644, for example, gives read/write/exec access to admins mostly, as far as I remember.
I hope that clears it up for you.

Easier than typing it out:
Im a linux junky, so I'll try to explain it...I'm sure the sites above give a good explaining.. but who wants to visit another site?
chmod stands for "Change Mode".
The numbers part is a little more complicated.... "777" is three numbers..to be nerdy and specific.. it is three 3 digit binary (base 2) numbers converted into three 1 digit octal (base 8) numbers.
The first number stands for "user", the second group stands for "group" and the final number stands for "other". There are three possible things that can be done with a file: read, write, and execute.. Here is a little reference:
execute = 001 in binary = 1 in octal
write = 010 in binary = 2 in octal
read = 100 in binary = 4 in octal
So where does the 7 come from?
7 in binary = 111 in decimal = read, write, execute
So you get:
read write execute = 111 = 1 + 2 + 4 = 7
read write no execute = 110 = 4 + 2 = 6
read no write execute = 101 = 4 + 1 = 5
read no write no execute = 100 = 4
no read write execute = 011 = 2 + 1 = 3
no read write no execute = 010 = 2
no read no write execute = 001 = 1
no read no write no execute = 000 = 0
To make a file "chmod 777" you would simply type:
chmod 777 filename.ext
in the terminal.

Thanks azngosu !!

Does this work for the iPHone 2g? Should we backup anything before beginning? What if you're using Fugu on a Mac?
06-30-2009, 10:40 AM #19
Anyone have the STOCK RegionalVolumeLimits.plist for the iPhone 2G with 3.0?
Not sure if I notice a difference... the music in my games seems to be somewhat distorted now...
NOTE: Should just be able to rename the .bak back to .plist and delete the modded .plist right?
