    hi there - i have searched for an answer on this but not found an answer

    but i thought i would ask- does anyone know how to get rid of that annoying noise that occurs if you are downloading something on the CM7 rom- its some kind of 'alert; because it occurs at other times aswell- but i can't find a way of switching it off-

    i have changed my notification sound- so my texts come in with a different noise- but this somehow seems separate, in where it the sound is generated from

    anyone had this problem?!

    Is there a general notification alert setting to look at?
    I ain't running that ROM so I can't look.

    dont know where the setting is, but the file should be in /system/media/audio/ui I would expect.

    Find the sound by going where I said and play it to work out which it is

    I'm on CM7, but don't have this problem. Not sure if that helps, or not though!

    I kind of get what u mean, but I know what the sound is called 'regulus'
    Its the default notification sound
    I just don't know where the off switch for it is, or rather why it has to notify me of stuff like downloadings occuring, so noisily

    hi there mate- i've finally found this- going in through the file manager- if i simply delete 'regulus' do you think it will cure the problem?!- although i realise i'm just deleting the noise not the reason for the noise....

    it was in system/ media/ audio/ notifications though- NOT UI, does that matter?!

    long shot, i know!!

    i just can't handle that chiming noise going off all the time!!



    alternativly within UI there are the following files..... which from my limited knowledge seem to be the positive 'triggers' of this noise

    dock. ogg
    effect_tick.ogg
    keypress delete. ogg
    keypress return.ogg
    lock.ogg
    low battery .ogg
    undock.ogg
    unlock.ogg


    the one i'm suspicious of here is 'effect.ogg' as it isn't obvious what it actually does-- but if i play it it plays the chime noise (but they all do)

    if i delete this is there a chance it will get rid of the problem?!

    could it be the chime that lets me know when iam losing my signal?!

    i guess that wouldn't explain the fact it goes off repeatedly when i download something though
