I am running Lollipop 5.0/CloudyG3 2.5 and G3 Tweaksbox. Is it possible to restore the "loud volume, long periods" notifications?
I would like to have the volume limiter that this notification provides.

I've tried rebooting my device and restoring the setting via Tweaksbox, but neither action helped.

  • Try to reboot your device, I think that I am getting that notification every time I reboot my phone. – Chapz Dec 16 '15 at 16:50
  • No, that hasn't worked. First thing I tried. – MauF Dec 16 '15 at 17:10
  • @Chapz, since you also know something about this problem, could you provide a screenshot? I can't find anything on google by searching "loud volume, long periods". – Firelord Dec 17 '15 at 23:30

    In my CyanogenMod 12, setting the value of key unsafe_volume_music_active_ms to 0 followed by a reboot restored it. If you're certain your ROM does have that safe sound setting, then there must be a key in a table of /data/data/com.android.providers.settings/databases/settings.db. In my ROM, the table is named secure and I did adb shell su -c content update --uri content://settings/secure --bind value:s:0 --where "name='unsafe_volume_music_active_ms'". Change the table and key name with the ones appropriate with the ones in your ROM. – Firelord Dec 21 '15 at 15:54

The volume warning was removed with Android Lollipop. It appears that this is in lollipop, but it is either very buggy or extremely passive.

Read the comments. Many users found it to be more of an annoyance than a useful feature. If you still want this feature, there are plenty of apps you can download that will limit the max volume of your device as KitKat did.

  • Is this absolutely true? It's been removed? I can almost swear that I pressed on the "accept" button while in Lollipop. – MauF Dec 21 '15 at 14:26
  • Found and downloaded an app from Play store. Thanks. – MauF Dec 21 '15 at 14:33
  • @MauF I never saw it and I use a Moto x. Motorola is usually VERY careful to deviate as little as possible from vanilla android. If anyone can prove this wrong, I'll happily admit I'm incorrect on that. – Ethan Z Dec 21 '15 at 14:59
  • @MauF So I have a story. I rescind what I said. This menu is in android L. However, it appears to be very buggy. My device's volume randomly lowered itself today in my car. It was this exact menu. Then the kicker- I can't get it to come back, even though I had selected cancel. This is the first and only time I have seen the warning in Lollipop and I don't think I will ever see it again. Bug or just more passive? I don't know. – Ethan Z Dec 22 '15 at 21:39
  • The plot thickens and gets weird. – MauF Dec 23 '15 at 3:45
