    Does anyone know if there's a away to add a custom sound to the app drawer when it's opened. I have an old Apple Newton that I've recorded some of the default sounds off of and one of them is the Newtons app drawer opening and closing. It's pretty cool! I use to use my Newton for everything!! I'd like to customize my Beholds app drawer.

    Add them to /system/media/sounds folder using root explorer or adb

    I'm pretty sure xblue95 was asking how to change the default sounds for the App drawer (The sounds it makes when it opens and closes), not how to add sounds in general. I personally have no idea, I was just trying to clarify the question.

    i'm running the WARHEADS ROM, and i dunno how similar the /system files are in comparison to Galaxy r8, but using a file explorer, i found that the app drawer noise is located in /system/media/audio/ui. just find the actual file name of the app drawer noise, save your sound you want as that name, in .ogg format (not sure if any other format will work, haven't tested this out myself to be honest with you but i do know the general concept), and then adb push that file from your computer to the directory in your phone and reboot for settings to take effect.

    hope this helps.....

    I haven't had time to play around with it yet, sorry! I haven't been able to find a setting in "phone settings" that turns on individual sounds, just an "Audible Selection" check box that just makes a clicking sound when selecting the drawer to open/close, it sounds like the same "click" for all other selections. There are a lot of sounds in the UI folder though, it seems like more sounds than the phone actually makes?

    I'm going to replace my boot sound with HAL 9000 saying "I'm completely operational, and all my circuits are functioning perfectly." I'll let you know how it goes

    The boot sound is an mp3, and I replaced it with my custom one, but it plays too fast when the phone boots, so I'm going to have to try changing the way it's encoded. Since I just overwrote my boot.mp3 in the /system/media/boot_ani/ directory, can someone pull their original one and post it here so I can analyze it to make sure I encode mine properly?

    Here it is. Whatever you decide to use for your boot sound has to be an mp3 with the following settings or it won't play correctly:
    stereo
    128kb/s
    44100hz
    mpga

    Very cool startup. What program did you use to convert your mp3 with those settings? And what is mpga? Thanks a lot

    Here's a custom boot sound I made a while back, it says "Initiating Start Up Sequence" I like it! Enjoy!
