    Jelly Bean Update - Unsafe Volume Warning and Clock

    I pulled the OTA update today. While driving home my volume suddenly dropped markedly while listening to an audio book. I thought it was just the book, but it was actually some warning that the phone had reduced the volume because of unsafe levels. Has anyone else seen this Unsafe Volume Warning? How do you stop this from happening? If it continues, it will be very annoying.

    Also, the Clock. How do you access the timer and stopwatch features now? When I open the Clock, all I can do is set alarms. I don't see any timer or stopwatch or worldtime or anything.

    Any ideas about these two items?

    Thanks!

    Yep, the volume thing happened to me too. I don't know (yet) how to stop it.

    I also don't know of a timer or stopwatch feature on the stock android clock now.

    This is from the android.com web site. It says the Clock has these features.

    Android - Android 4.2, Jelly Bean

    Who knows. I really could care less about the clock, but the unsafe volume thing could be a major issue.

    The way i was able to stop the unsafe volume feature is to freeze the AcousticWarning App. It is a system app and I think you would need root access to stop.

    the volume warning kicked in when I went out for a run today, the volume was turned up all the way, the accoustic warning cut the volume to 50%.

    the alarm clock/ timer was replaced by "clock" which has an alarm feature, I need a timer (for grilling) so I wound up downloading "StopWatch" .

    Lightbulb So you do still care, then.

    OK, cool, so you do care about the clock at least a little, then, since "could care less" gives you some room that you could go lower before you didn't care anymore, unlike the popular opposite phrase, "couldn't care less."
