    Since "upgrading to Jelly Bean I have noticed a process in running apps called "acoustic warning". Never seen it before (while on ICS) and not sure what it is for. Anyone else have it running too and know what it is?

    Here are some screenshots of the process:

    It might be the toast notification of when you turn your media volume up too high. Just a guess.

    +1,000,000 you are correct. It detects when your volume is too high while listening to music and throws a warning that your music is too high and will beat the crap out of your ears.

    Lol yup. I've tested it out. Disable app and the warning goes away. Re-enable and its back.

    But on my phone, Disable is grayed out and I cannot select it. All I can do is Force Stop. How do you disable this nonsense?

    I believe it does more than just warn you. If for example you have your volume up to the max before you first start a song or some other sound file, this app will automatically reduce the volume to a lower level to "protect" your ears. At least this what it did for me one time. So .... well...that's that!

    I just had this issue today with pandora. Sorry to bring a thread back from the dead but there are no references to this in the forum:
    in terminal:
    su
    pm disable com.motorola.acousticwarning

    or...

    use titanium backup to free it (with paid version) but it does the same thing. Enjoy.
