    Alrighty, I'm a somewhat recent Apple-convert, I had an iPhone about 2-3 years ago, just got rid of my EVO 4G I had for two years, and upgraded to the Note II.

    Now, my iPhone was jailbroken, and I enjoyed how easy it was to change UI sounds. I never bothered to root my Evo for whatever reason, but not I have the Note. And like many, I'm not a fan of certain UI sounds.

    Basically I just want to change

    -S-Pen detatch/re-attach sound
    -Phone Keypad sound
    -Unlock sounds
    and
    -Touch sounds.


    Also, if you have any good resources to get UI sounds for free or cheap download, that would be cool :)

    I have zero interest in changing out the ROM itself. I'm more than happy with most of my phone, and am content with GO Launcher/Locker.

    Model: SPH-L900
    Android Version: 4.1.1
    Carrier: Sprint


    So I need to actually Root the thing, meaning I need the software and I'm not sure what to use, or how to use it.

    And if I could get a guide to the UI stuff too, that would be fantastic.

    Now, when I root it, all my data (Apps, Music, everything) will still be there, yes?
    I don't want to have to re-do anything if I don't have to.

    Everything will be the same after rooting, no data loss.... When you decide to flash a rom, that's when a full wipe will happen and essentially you will have to start over
