    I seen this tweak in Cydia today and I was wondering if any of you have used it and if so, if it works well??

    Thanks.

    I just installed the 2.2 version of it. Honestly little changes like this are mental. Who knows if it increased. "seems louder" :D

    Both, i would say it gives you an extra 20% volume. I could only tell the difference when i plug it in to my liquid aux adapter for my car. I use to have to set my car volume to near the max level. Now i don't have to go as high.

    Holy crap I read that the wrong way. Too much school work, I was like "There's a package to give your iPhone more space??" :)

    I don't need any louder volume, if I do, I boost certain songs in iTunes. :)

    I have it installed on mine, and it seems better to me.

    Could be the placebo effect though :p

    I've installed the Volume Boost app and I can honestly say, when using the iPod function I can notice a little bit of a difference.

    When using the speaker phone function....I noticed a ZERO increase of volume.

    Has anyone else noticed a difference when using the speaker phone??

    I have the Mamacita number sounds I saved from Customize, and they are at least 100% louder with Volume Boost.

    I didn't notice any increased volume in other areas of the iPhone, including the unlock sound (Mac startup chime),
    and the lock sound (Windows XP shutdown sound).

    how about earpiece volume?

    I have problems with the earpiece volume when making phone calls. I'm pretty satisfied with teh speaker volume. Is there any way of making the earpiece louder? I tried Volume Boost for 2.2 but it didn't seem to help a whole lot.

    Has anyone tried poking holes in the earpiece? I've heard about people doing it with the speaker but wondering mainly about the earpiece.

    thanks,

    That was only for the first iPhone. It is impossible to do this with the iPhone 3G. However, I did it with my old first gen iPhone, and the increase was very noticeable.

    EDIT: I read wrong, you were talking about the earpiece. Oops.
    Well, I doubt that would work. I wouldn't try.
