Driver files description:
  • bta2dp.parameters - AD2P Audio Sink
  • btmono-hfp.parameters*- HFP Bluetooth Sink
  • btmono-hsp.parameters*- HSP Bluetooth Sink
  • hp.parameters*- In Call Sink
  • ihf.parameters* N900 Amplified Speakers Sink

!!!WARNING!!! N900 internal speaker system is very fragile, so I've added a protection filter on this file. "xprot" filter adds a limiter protection for the speakers output, so the speakers won't be any louder, just more clear. If you want to make them louder, please disable the "xprot", but I can tell you you will regret your decision!
Code:
ihfandfmtx.parameters*- FM Output
fmtx.parameters*- FMTX
hs.parameters*- Stereo Headphones with Mic - Not ORIGINAL
ihfandheadset.parameters*- Stereo Headphones with Mic - ORIGINAL
ihfandlineout.parameters*- Stereo Jack Headphones
lineout.parameters*- Stereo Jack Line Out
ihfandtv-out.parameters*- TV Out Sink - ORIGINAL Cable
tvout.parameters*- TV Out Sink - Not ORIGINAL Cable

Files parameteres explained:

Opening the files with a note pad editor you would find several lines relating to Boolean operations; Ill try to explain what each does:
x-maemo.aep - Enables audio boost 
x-maemo.nrec - Background music quality
x-maemo.nb_eeq - Turns up the tweeter system
x-maemo.nb_meq - Also turns up the tweeter (Stage 2)
x-maemo.wb_eeq - Turns up the bass
x-maemo.wb_meq - Also turns up the bass (Stage 2)
x-maemo.stereo-widening -  Stereo Widening
x-maemo.xprot.displacement - Limits volume / Activate overload protection
x-maemo.xprot.temperature - Limits distiortion level / Activate overheat protection
Beats Audio Driver Control

GST Render modified to modify Beats Audio Driver - Equalizer

After you install the package, "MAFW Equalizer" applet appears in the Control Panel, providing access to the 10-band equalizer, as well as a number of preset settings like e.g. Rock, Treble, Bass, Hall, etc. You can create and save your own presets, too.

In order to install the equalizer, extract the .deb file, send it to your N900 and save it somewhere (e.g. in MyDocs) and then:
  • open the X Terminal
  • type "sudo gainroot" to become root (requires rootsh package)
  • type "cd /home/user/MyDocs"
  • type "dpkg -i gst*"
  • type "apt-get remove mafw-gst-renderer"
  • reboot your N900.

WARNING! When typing a command please remove the "".

SOURCE CODE NOW INCLUDED!

Custom Beats by Dr. Dre Icon

How to install:

1.Open WinSCP and navigate to /usr/share/icons/$THEME/18x18/hildon/ and /usr/share/icons/$THEME/48x48/hildon/
2.Replace the files (4 files to replace).

Your contributions for Maemo5 are great representing much hard work. If you were to package the updates as .deb files and better yet submit them to the repos. This would make finding, installing, and more importantly uninstalling and upgrading much safer and more pleasant.
We are all appreciating your contributions.

Thank you, but I won't do it. Other users are free to take the projects and pack it as .deb and do whatever with it. This project will remain fully open.

I would have read it had it not been so small. Anyway, I didn't think that you are TheoX. If I remember it right, it's against forum rules to create a new account when you are banned. None of my business anyway so good luck.

Please re-download the file. I checked the file before and after uploading and everything works just fine. I saw that Mediafire had some problems with the download system so that might be the problem.

Without any offense, please try to download the file with IE, since I am having problems downloading with Firefox.

PurpleSX8, just FYI .deb packing is just a single file tar.gz file with the component files and a control file which tells dpkg/apt-get or whatever installer app where to put the component files on the installing system, you can open and browse a .deb file with almost any unzipping program as it is just wrapped inside an open file container. .deb is the standard package format brought in from Maemos heritage as a Debian Linux based distro; Debian one of the most open OS's around and will not include non-free components, even Firefox is recompiled for Debian without the trademarked Firefox logo as iceweasel .
I just reread what you posted, blame my bad reading comprehension skills, you meant the project is fully open for anyone else to package as a .deb, sorry for that long winded unneeded lecture and again thanks for the work.
