    I know there have been some issues stated with the quality of Pandora since switching to 2.2 I believe... and I have experienced this too. (Maybe it was a a certain ROM or something, but I believe it was 2.2 related) So, now with official 2.2 out, and some time has passed, I was wondering if there has been a resolution that I might have missed? I really miss the audio quality, kinda sucks now. Seems like the music is flat, no bass, just blah. Even with the audio quality set to High. Sucks.

    Think I found the answer for myself.

    [FIX] Fix poor AAC streaming performance (Pandora, Slacker, etc) on Froyo - xda-developers

    Just need to change the build.prop and it'll fix it. It does have some side affects, to read thru that. But looks like the last suggestion on there seems to be best. The one where it says to change the HTTP one not the PLAYER one. If you change to media.stagefright.enable-player=false it'll affect local video stuff like benchmark scores... If you change to media.stagefright.enable-http=false instead, then it shouldnt affect benchmarks and other local stuff.

    Already figured out.

    **READ MY ABOVE POSTS FIRST**

    Clarification of what's above:
    Go to /system, find build.prop, use a text editor (or something like Root Explorer) to find the lines I just mentioned (they are at bottom)... Change "=true" to "= false" (I reccommend changing the HTTP one ONLY). Seems like if it saves, then ur good. Just go back into it and double check. Some might need a reboot (check again afterward for the change). Good to go!

    Leave this line

    media.stagefright.enable-player

    set to true and change this line

    media.stagefright.enable-http=true

    to

    media.stagefright.enable-http=false

    That will only affect http streaming, like Pandora. You shouldn't have any problems with the camera. It won't affect files on the phone/sdcard, so those will still sound crappy if they did before. A nice side effect of this is that the quadrant scores go back up to normal...

    Nope, people reported having side affects with local things, like other audio streaming things, and the quadrant benchmark scores would drop nearly in half, because the these settings also control video streams too, so that would affect the video tests too. Which is why it's now recommended to just switch the HTTP one, so it doesnt affect other things like that.

    Awesome, root explorer even made a backup once I changed it. Is a reboot required for this to take affect?

    I don't think so. As long as pandora was closed, I think it hit's the build.prop on open. But if not, then just reboot to be sure.
