Do some sounds simply not work well?.


If your rooted you can copy and paste them to your system/media/audio/notification file. Just don't forget to change the owner and permissions. Owner/group should be root/root and the perms should be rw-r-r I believe. I've done this in the past and even after flashing a different ROM those media files were still there.
