Thread: Vibration is WEAK - Help
11-19-2008, 04:56 PM #1Vibration is WEAK - Help
so ive literally looked everywhere i could think of. and no fix. my vibrate is weak and i KNOW there is a way to make it buzz harder, and sound higher.
through all my searching i found System/Library/PrivateFramework/Celestial.framework and i found SystemSoundMaximumVibrationIntensity.plist and i need to know how to edit this and what to change inside.
thank you so much
if theres another fix to just let me know =] thanks

You can edit duration and cycle (like one buzz, or two, etc) but you cant change the intensity. However, if it is exceptionally weak, it could be considered by Apple defective...and they may just give you a new phone. I have seen it happen.

only problem is, i just exchanged my phone last saturday, and.... they probably wont do it again. i used to make the intensity on my motos high and low, there has to be a way. THERE HAS TO BE

^^I understand what your saying.
Havent seen it....but now that you mention it I may look harder cause I would love mine to vib better.

yea, i think so too, and i dont have a mac to edit these files on, =[
but look here: System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Celistal.framework/SystemSoundMaximumVibrationIntensity.plist
you can do anything with the iPhone, you can change the vibration.. youre awesome cp

You dont need a Mac....can be done with Wordpad in WinPC.
Ive checked those out before....but it seems that the only thing that will change is the length and number of buzz's, if you will. Changing the value listed for "intensity" doesnt seem to have an impact. But i'll play around with it again....why not, my phone's already plugged to the computer anyways

yea just see what you can do man! it'd be awesome if we (you mainly) could discover a fix for this

You think if I took my 10 month old 2G into an Apple store and tried the weak vibration thing it would work, cpjr?
I'd doubt it, but I can hope...Respect your elders.

^^Dunno, if it really has a problem. Buddy of mine had an iphone that would barely vibrate....they gave him a new one after comparing it to one of theirs...and admitting that it was weak.

EDIT: Waiiiiiit. This means I'd have to restore back to stock. No. No no no no no. I guess I'm not going to try this after all. Thanks for the reply, though.Respect your elders.

I had this problem a few weeks ago, I tried editing the SystemVibration Intensity whatever and nothing helped. Apple will replace it for you. You got it replaced a week ago? The iPhone I had was replaced 2 days before i brought it in for a weak vibrate, if you test it with in-store iPhones and it is weaker they will replace it for youiLive an iLife

^That kills me... Maybe I will restore it and try this if my vibration feels weaker compared to others. Thanks for the information.Respect your elders.
11-19-2008, 08:44 PM #13
^^Dude, a restore is totally worth a new (ok, refurbed) iphone.
11-19-2008, 09:20 PM #14
I know mayne, but what if I don't get it? I just finished redoing my newest jailbreak, haha.Respect your elders.
11-19-2008, 09:29 PM #15
If your really worried.....and an Apple store isnt to far out of your way....drop by and "test" a couple of their demo phones compared to yours.
If you think there is a big difference, then go home and restore. And bring it back.
11-19-2008, 09:43 PM #16
^LOL. Sounds like a legit idea since I'm going to be there to check out that sexy MacBook anyway, but my vibration is pretty good, I think.
And yeah, I have an Apple Store right near me at home, but I'm at school right now, so this is going to have to wait until next week when I get home for Thanksgiving.
If I got it, it would be turned around in 2 seconds for $400 and I'd be getting myself a 8GB (or maybe 16?) 3G and some 360 game-action.
I'll tell my story in here when it goes down. Only thing I'm worried about is making a non-corrupt backup that I'll be able to restore from if needed.Respect your elders.

New iphones are hot.
Bought an 8gb on ebay last week knowing I could get it exchanged and DID. Cost $125
Bought another one last nite 95% sure I can get it exchanged too. Cost $140
I just like looking at it....nice and shiny, still has the plastic on the screen

I don't think you should rule out getting a Genius Bar replacement before you try it. It IS completely hit-or-miss, because it depends on the mood of the particular Genius you end up with, but just tell them this is a replacement iPhone and you have a problem with its vibration. No harm in trying it, you have a legitimate concern.
11-19-2008, 11:30 PM #19
ya, i know this.. but i as well just finished my newest jailbreak and whatnot
this just sucks because i dont wanna get ANOTHER one. ya know?
WOULD THEY EVEN DO A SECOND EXCHANGE???
and there is FO SHO no way to fix it through file editing? maybe im just a little paranoid...
any of you who are into music, my vibrate is in the key of a low E... idk if thats low, or normal, all i know is tht i was modding someones phone for them (2G) and it had a beat of a vobrate on it.. i guess ill go in there this weekend and compare, and if i notice a difference, then ill just restore IN-STORE (and back-up before) and then take it up with a genius...
btw, i have another question..

Apple gives you three swap outs before they tell you to get bent so swap it again.
