    Hi everyone,

    I'm wondering: does this ROM have the Google-issued "fix" for Pandora / AAC+ streaming audio quality? I'm talking of course about the notorious AAC+ decoding bug that has plagued Stagefright in many builds of Froyo.

    How does it sound over 3G?

    Thanks,

    dt

    Sounds fine after you go into pandora pref and turn on "high" for cell network audio quality. I listened to it today in my car and it sounds like a normal MP3 :)

    Yeah I always use the 'high' setting for that.
    But even with that, pandora sounds terrible on some roms.

    What about Navigation pausing Pandora and it not resuming play afterwords? I remember reading that this was a 2.2 OS bug.

    I don't think that BB 0.5 has the stagefright fix integrated. I applied it and Pandora audio quality did seem to improve.

    Every other song is screwed up for me too. Can anyone explain why only some songs sound terrible? Are there different file types being played from song to song? I understand the issue with AAC+ and Stagefright but still don't know why it doesn't affect all songs.

    How did you apply the fix? Are you referring to disabling stagefright by modifying build.prop? If so, that isn't actually the fix, just a workaround thatg doesn't always work amazingly :/

    I listened to Pandora on BB0.5 this morning and I felt like it sounded tiny and hollow so I switched to mp3's using the music player. I have pandora set to high quality, so I know that's not the issue.

    As far as I can tell BB0.5 does not contain any sort of stagefright fix.

    This is unacceptable for a rom this day and age :( I really wanted to use BB 0.5 but I'm afraid if pandora is unlistenable then I have no choice but to use a different rom.

    I tested Pandora out last night while driving home. It still does not sound too great, although it did sound a LITTLE bit better than BBv4.

    I can't really compare because I honestly never tested Pandora on android 2.1 over 3G. For all I know, probably all versions of 2.2 sound like crap?

    I JUST flashed Chevys SS 4.8 rom, will test out Pandora when I get a chance and report back to let you know

    Could someone post the actual fix for stagefright? I've been modifying the build.prop with root explorer, wasn't aware of a better fix
