Android No sound from external speaker fix 2

OK guys today I have another great fix for those who are experiencing the Android No sound from external speaker problem. With this issue when you try to play music of any kind you will find that you are not hearing anything or no sound comes from the speakers and you can’t get to listen to your favorite music as you normally do. Also with this issue you will realize that you still get sound from the earphones but not from the phone speakers which is a big issue.

How will this fix work?

This fix works by disabling the auto headphone detection built into your phone seeing that while audio does not play from the speakers the headphone works which indicates that the headphones themselves or the jack is interfering with the loud speakers as your phone works through headphones OK. So under normal operations the phone can only play through headphones or speakers and do one at a time. In this situation it seems that it constantly believes that it should play through headphones and thus you hear nothing through speakers until we disable the headphone detection as shown below.
