23.0.1.A.0.167 and Noise Cancelling?

TL; Dr. version

For those of you with handsets not rooted that have improved the OTA to 23.0.1.A.0.167 / 4.4.4, is the function of noise cancellation still work with the supplied headphones?

Long version for those who like the context...:

My UK, Z2 without sim and not rooted asked finally updated to 23.0.1.A.0.167.  Major gripes on here seems to be around lag size and the camera icon, with which I think I can live.

It was reported some, however, the noise cancelling function no longer works with the supplied headphones.  It would be a deal breaker for me, and I'd rather stay on 4.4.2 If this is the case.  My Z2 is not rooted and I have no desire to root, as it would break an internet banking application that I use a lot.  So I have no method I know of downgrade to 4.4.2 if indeed, the noise cancelling function is borked.

A bit of Googling suggests that at least some of the problems with nosie cancellation are those who run rooted handsets, and/or have "manually" upgrade to 4.4.4 using a stock ROM.

For those of you with no rooted handsets that have improved to 23.0.1.A.0.167 / 4.4.4, is the function of noise cancellation still work with the supplied headphones?


Just updated to 4.4.4 and tested headphones cancel noise that have been provided with the phone and it still works. My unit is UK without update OTA 30 minutes free SIM card there...

Do not like the new icons, but always play with it

  • Start of satellite L10 fan speed and noise

    My L10 cooling fan start always maximum speed, when it turns on it always burst at maximum speed (and noise) and then slow down to a speed (and slient relative). This fan start noise is very annoying (as fan departure every half hour in office work and every 15 minutes in some simple games).
    I try muffler or bios settings performance they do not fix the noise and the starting speed.
    Maybe Toshiba could release some bios update or patch or something to fix this? (my bios version 2.0)
    Maybe this problem has the solution software thrid party?
    Or the fan speed max is just a hardware problem?

    Thank you.

    Hello Albert

    The same thing my Qosmio F20 and in my opinion, it is not any kind of technical problem. At the moment I'm typing this text and hear Internet radio at the same time. The cooling fan works regularly.

    In my opinion, when the operating system runs several different processes running in the background and they need the CPU activity that needs to be cooled correctly. In my opinion, you should check the power settings management settings and change the performance of the processor to lower the level.

    If the cooling fan runs every 15 minutes, in my opinion, it is not too often.

    Good bye

  • Possible bug in sv_Harmonic distortion and Noise.vi


    I ran into what seems to be a bug in distortion and Noise.vi sv_Harmonic

    I call this VI into a higher level VI which is part of the box sound & Vibration tool (SVT SNR without harmonic (time) (1ch) .vi)

    What is happening is that I sometimes get error 0xFFFFB1A3 (-20061):

    Error-20061 occurred at NI_MABase.lvlibine Waveform.vi:22 > NI_MABase.lvlib:ma_Trap Fgen parameter Errors.vi:1
    frequency must be<= sampling="">

    Possible reasons:

    Analysis: The selection is not valid.

    This error is actually produced in distortion and Noise.vi sv_Harmonic by one of his subVIs (your unique information (complex) .vi svc_Extract) although I'm not able to activate debugging for this VI so I can't dig deeper.

    What seems to be the case, it is for certain fundamental frequencies that result in higher order harmonic which is located very close to Fs/2, you get the error.  I have attached a waveform and a simple VI that generates the error.  My debugging, it seems that the error occurred when the code attempts to extract the harmonic at 5119,53 Hz.  FS/2 is 5120Hz, so it must be valid, but generates an error.

    Thank you


    Hey Matt,

    I spoke with R & D and the source of this problem is we're detects peaking at exactly the Nyquist frequency for the 127th harmonic, while it should work, we get the false error. To work around the problem, you can specify the frequency range of 0-126 harmonics as seen in the image below.  Have one less harmonic should not be a big problem as the harmonic 127th is anyway in the noise.  R & D is now aware of the issue and look forward to it.   Thank you!

  • How can I remove grain and noise of my "rushes". video was filmed during the night with poor lighting and a digital SLR

    grain and noise reductiom

    As already suggested, video Neat.


    Embarrassing bad web site, very good product.

    Don't forget that in addition to the expense of the plug-in, noise reduction is a very intensive rendering process - and so you have the payroll to the supplementary budget to make files.

    Do a test on excerpts and see if it works well enough for you.

    If so, edit without making the noise reduction and, once you have the material cut down to just the sections that need a treatment, do your the noise reduction on all this material.

  • Missing pallets of sharpness and noise reduction

  • sharpening and noise in point 6.3 of ACR... advice please


    Where can I find good tutorial (or other advice) stuff on the sharpness and noise in point 6.3 of ACR.

    My camera is a Panasonic DMC - FZ8.

    Adjustments like color / black / contrast I can 'see' on my screen (I am convinced so far).

    But the noise and sharpening... "It is a different kettle of fish"... I have problems with it... complex... (my std JPG is better than RAW - JPG).

    Basic rules are usually made to be broken.  They could provide a good starting strategy in many cases.

    The thread I did reference is: http://forums.adobe.com/thread/780678

    I reread and it's not that much more information on it.

    Keep in mind, there is nothing fundamentally wrong with an image file further.  If you are short of space, new drives are incredibly cheap these days.

    A good rule of thumb (!) is not save, then open, then resave JPEG files.  You can do it once or twice in a pinch, but the compression artifacts will be piling up, just like JPEG lossy compression.

    If a PSD file is growing like save for save, this may be because you're doing something for the image to the cause--for example, create new layers, or sharpening it and increasing the amount of detail apparent in the compression process must deal with.


  • X 201 micro - quality and noise reduction

    Hello. I was wondering if someone managed to make a reasonable use of microphones on the X 201 tablet. I don't know if I configure them or if they are simply poor quality, but the microphones seem to be horrible. When I turn off noise cancelling and echo cancellation, there is a humming sound important and crackled in the background. When I turn on the noise cancelling, it is totally impossible for the microphones to be used to record or transmit any intelligible voice, even if I yell.

    In short, the pickups are almost useless for Skype and similar and of course completely useless for any sort of speech recognition applications.

    Someone had a bit of luck in tweaking perhaps some special configuration settings that I'm not aware of? However, if the microphones are just fundamentally wrong, someone at - it recommendations for an extra helmet (preferably without wireless/bluetooth) microphone?

    Hey dm09,.

    try to uninstall the audio drivers for your device.

    Let windows install its generic drivers and test again.

    It made a difference?

    Note that the version of the sound driver for the X 201 is at If yours is not to this version update for this.

    at the same time, do a full update of the system of your device.
