8.5, 7, 3.5, - 3.5, - 2, 2, 6, 5.5, 11, 12
7, 5.5, 3.5, - 3.5, - 2, 2, 6, 5.5, 11, 12

Disable OnePlus Sound Tuner App

Some OnePlus users have complained that their device’s system sound tuner app is conflicting with this mod. The fix for the same is to disable this stock sound tuner. Since this is a system app, you cannot do so the normal way, rather you would have to take the help of ADB commands. Here’s how:

  1. To begin with, download and install the Android SDK Platform Tools on your PC.
  2. Then enable USB Debugging on your device so that your PC is able to recognize the device in ADB mode.
  3. Now head over to the platform-tools folder, type in CMD in its address bar, and hit Enter. This shall launch the Command Prompt.
  4. Finally, execute the below command in this CMD window to disable the sound tuner:
    adb shell pm disable-user --user 0 com.oneplus.sound.tuner
  5. That’s it, the mod should now function correctly.
