What audio adapter works with the new ROM?
 
OK, the latest ROM broke many, but apparently not all, of the OEM audio adapters that were on the market. At this point, some work, but many (most?) do not.

So can we get a list going of those that DO work? Specifically, I'm talking about an adapter that converts from the Titan's mini-USB socket to a 3.5" stereo audio socket.

If your 3.5mm adapter works - without having to do surgery on pin 1, without having to plug anything in "half way", without having to do any weird sequence of clicks, without having to string several adapters together - if it just works every time you plug it in....

Then please post a reply here with the brand, price, and where you bought it.

Thanks in advance.

The audio on my Seidio devices works just fine. I have the desktop and car mount docks. I also have the 3.5 end with a mic and answer button on it. They all sound fine.

I am referring to the official Rev.A Sprint rom. I think it is 3.35.

The only new problem I seem to be having is that bluetooth will no longer allow me to use a headset when one of these devices is attached.

Thanks. At least one other person (in another thread, some weeks back) has mentioned a Seidio adapter as working successfully with the new ROM. I guess I can shop for one from that brand. I hope other "success stories" will come along as well, though.

Yikes, that unit looks physically identical (absolutely, completely identical) to the one that I have here that definitely DOESN'T work. I don't doubt that it works, but it sure makes it hard to know how to separate the good ones from the bad ones.

Is there any company logo or marking on it? Mine has only the branching arrow logo molded into the back.

I wonder if they just quickly revamped the product so that it works correctly. How recently did you buy it? At just $5, I guess I can just go ahead and try it.

And of course there are no marking names etc on it. I bought one earlier that was just the usb to 3.5 that works but provides no charging capability.

This one works w/ 3.35 and is nice and unobtrusive... http://cgi.ebay.com/For-AT-T-8525-HT...742.m153.l1262

I just bought a couple of 3.5 adapters for my Mogul from eBay. I hope they work!

I don't understand how a ROM update could break the audio port, I thought it was hard-wired?

My "el-cheapo" audio adapter from ebay works like a charm.

(Edit: Using latest Kitchen ROM)

It is hardwired HTC puts in a extra pin that others don't use.

It does seem counterintuitive, doesn't it? The problem seems to have to do with the microphone signal - the input, not the output. The new firmware changed the way the Mogul responds to what it sees there. Keep in mind that the Mogul only sends audio to the output if it senses that there is something connected there to receive it. Otherwise, the audio goes to the internal speaker. So something changed in the logic that triggers the audio port to become enabled. And certain adapters still work fine, while others no longer work at all.

One person figured out that if you can disconnect pin "1" on the problem adapters, they begin to work. So it appears to have to do with that signal. And that's the one that carries the microphone input from a wired headset. Unfortunately, disconnecting that pin can be easier said than done.

Reply to my email.. Oh well.
 
Hi Sir,

We have contacted the manufacturer and they can not figure out why this is the case. We have removed Mogul as the compatible device from our product description.

At this time, we don't know if the manufacturer can come up with the new version.

Hi I bought one of these and it doesn not work with the new EVDO A / GPS enabled Sprint HTC Titan 100 PPC-6800 Mogul phone any longer, it worked great prior to the updated ROM.

Would you have an updated or working version for this as a replacement?

Just thought I'd update... my eBay audio adapters came and they work fine with the new ROMs.
I paid $3.70 shipped for 2 from seller Televate on eBay. They are basic headphone-only stereo adapters.

I have this exact adapter, and it DOES infact work with the newest official ROM.

To make it work, you must first start the audio/video stream, then plug in the adapter, and then finally plug in the headset to the adapter. This always seems to work.

FWIW, here are the three I use in various situations. All work, as do the original two that came with my Mogul. I am using No2Chem's 5065.

i purchased the cable from radioshack and i can get stereo out just fine to car speakers.


But now how do i get to answer calls without having to disconnect everything and remove phone from cradle etc? or somehow get a mic attached to the mix?

Thanks in advance,
Is.

Seems like i've tried this before, but i'll give it a shot again! I've got the official 3.35 from Sprint and this exact plug from Semsons. Ughhh..

Welp, we'll see what happens!

Re: What audio adapter works with the new ROM?
 
I've had some problems with two different adapters. One from Ebay (no obvious identifier) and one from PPC Techs with built in microphone. With both adapters I used to be able to listen to MP3s and then when I would get a call it would send audio to my bluetooth headset. Now, with the 3.35 ROM, I can still listen to MP3s just fine but I have to manually disconnect the adapter from the phone to get the phone to send audio to my bluetooth headset when I receive a call. Can anyone, with certainty, say where they purchased adapters that can
1) charge the phone
2) provide a female 1/8in (3.5mm) audio port
3) enable bluetooth audio with phone calls (without having to disconnect the adapter)

Thanks,
Andrew

Ok, I just recieved this product and it doesn't work. It is the same exact thing as the ones we all got from semsons and ebay ( even though the picture on the product page displays a flat one). Spent over 11 dollars including shipping for this product and i am angry.Question to "rambrush" are you using the official sprint rom or a cooked up rom ???

Quick note to Yankees368: Thanks! It may only have been $5, but your useful note about the adapter from Stemsons actually working with the new ROM has saved me a bunch of frustration ... much appreciated!

Re: What audio adapter works with the new ROM?
 
I just got my mogul last week and it came with the 3.35 rom. It included 2 adapters in the box - 1 for power/synch - factory earbuds and 1 for power/synch - 2.5 headphones. The one with the 2.5 jack does not work - is this because of the rom? Odd that they would include an adapter that does not work with the mogul.
