    Is there an application (or one in the works) that will allow us to apply a sound effect to the slider opening and closing?
    Maybe base it off of when the screen rotates + keyboard lights up?

    I would love to apply 2 seperate notifications. One for open and one for close.



    Anyone got an application like this in the works or know of one that would work on Samsung Moment?


    I know there is a notification for when you unplug the power, but I'd love to have 2 seperate from that for JUST the slider.
    I can't believe we can't modify seperate notification sounds custom without apps.

    I don't care. I want to put the codec open and close noise from metal gear. Yep I'm a geek. If I could program the app myself I would.

    Actually, that'd be pretty cool. But I'd still probably get annoyed of it.

    I've been searching high and low for this app. I saw stuff on other forums about editing CABS and stuff and registries. I'd rather just have an APP do it.

    CABS/registries are for WINMO.

    I know a way to do this, but you'd have to be rooted, and run a few linux commands.

    Its a tad bit more complicated then that. So say you have the sound you want. Great.

    Well you need to find where the default file is stored, and what it is named.

    Then make a copy of it, to back it up with adb shell

    Then you remove the default file, from its default location, using the "rm" command.

    That's not where it is, just an example of what the command would look like.
    Then you would take the sound you like, and rename it to EXACTLY WHAT THE DEFAULT FILE WAS. Very important here. Then you put that file exactly where the old one was, using the cat command again, but reversed.

    Presto, your done.

    Now keep in mind, you can brick your phone doing this. Quite easily in fact. So you have been warned. Also, the code lines I gave you are only examples. It may not even be an ogg file. I really don't know. Haven't looked. Good luck.
