Default Music Player for Headset Controls
Hey everyone, got myself stumped on something. Its really just an annoyance, but would be nice if I can get it to work the way I want.
I recently got PowerAMP and have a set of BOSE Earbuds with a Pause/Play button. I have it currently set as my default music player and the headset button works fine to pause/play/skip ahead.
However, the button only works with PowerAMP once PowerAMP has played at least once after plugging in the headset. If I plug in the headset and haven't activated PowerAMP yet, when I press the button the native music app starts to play. I noticed this after I disabled the PowerAMP setting to auto-start when the headset is plugged in.
If anyone has any ideas, it would be appreciated. Like I said, its just a small annoyance, but would be nice to have PowerAMP just start when i push the button the first time.
By the way, I am currently on CM7 Nightly #13.

Check to see if the native app is the default...
from home screen press "menu" -> "settings" -> "Applications" -> "Manage applications" -> select the "all" tab -> scroll down and select "Music"
Check to see if the "Clear defaults" button is enabled. If it is then click it to clear the defaults. You should be able to select PowerAMP as your default the next time you play a song.

unfortunately I've already tried that and just double checked to confirm. Music says "No defaults set." and PowerAMP is already set as default. just to be sure, i cleared defaults on PowerAMP and reset as default. same problem.
Figured it out!
Found this thread here (is there any way to disable the stock music player? - Droid Forum - Verizon Droid & the Motorola Droid Forum) and it suggested that I used Titanium to freeze it.
I did that and it totally worked. And it didn't mess with my ringtones and notifications either (I had read somewhere else that removing or freezing the stock player would screw up your ringtones and notifications).
All is good now
