Currently the vibration intensity in my Lollipop ROM is too high, even for things like haptic feedback. This is a problem with most ROMs on my device (Xiaomi Mi3W), and was fixed in 4.4 with an alteration to framework-res.apk here, but I can find no information on what files were changed. The only this I can find is here on xda-developers forum, but this is for GB and neither the LP or KK framework-res have that xml file. I cannot replace the LP framework with the KK framework because I am guessing it will just cause bootloops/force closes.

Does anyone know of a system modification that be changed to lower system vibrations for everything? The modification can be in the source or compiled ROM.



Settings> Sound & notification> Other sounds> Vibrator intensity.

    Many manufacturers modify Android to add their own settings, meaning that settings on your specific phone may be different or missing altogether on another. "Vanilla" Android 5.0 does not have a "Vibrator intensity" setting under the options you mentioned. Please make sure to mention your specific phone make and model when giving such answers.

    Motorola is reputed to use a relatively vanilla Android, and version 6.0.1 on the Moto G4 does not have any vibration intensity settings. It has only Other sounds -> Vibrate on touch: on or off. I only hope Nougat will allow more customization.
