Samsung Galaxy Nexus Ringtones, Notifications and Alarms for All Devices [Download]

A few days ago we showed you how to make your (rooted) phone look like Ice Cream Sandwich and today we are going to show you how to make your phone sound like Ice Cream Sandwich. P3Droid extracted the audio files from the Samsung Galaxy Nexus system dump and uploaded them for the world to download and enjoy. The sounds included in the zipped audio file include alarms, notifications, ringtones and UI. Getting your phone to recognize these files is as simple as following these steps. For best results, use Windows (Macs aren’t very good at merging folders).

  1. Extract the zip file (it should be automatically renamed “audio.” If not, rename the folder “audio.”)
  2. Place the “audio” folder in the “media” folder found on your device’s SD card. If there is no “media” file then create one.
  3. Choose ringtones and notifications from your device’s settings and the new Ice Cream Sandwich sounds should show up under their respective names.
  4. Enjoy!

The “ui” folder found in the audio file is a little more tricky to apply and is only for rooted users. You can apply the all new ui sounds (lock/unlock, audible selections, etc.) by replacing the “ui” folder located in the system folder on the root of your device (system > media > audio > ui).

P3Droid asked that we link to the original thread so we will honor his request. Just keep in mind that you will have to register for that site to download the audio zip. A hassle, I know but I’m sure someone will mirror the file in no time.

With the help of these sounds, ringtones and notifications, you can have your device smelling, sounding and tasting like the real thing. At least until we can officially get our hands on the Galaxy Nexus. Cheers!

      Thanks, I hate these douche bags that make you register for a new site just to download something.

      • DannyB2

        douche bags is way too kind.

      • eclipsenyou

        You’re getting it for free and you still complain!?
        You’re obviously new to the interwebs so let me give you a little tip. Set up a gmail acct strictly for junk mail and log-in information to sites you’ll rarely visit.
        Now, how hard was that?

    • Bill Wardingley

    I think ill just be patient and wait for the all inclusive package…kudos to those able to snag the goods and share, but to me, i dont like to peek at my xmas presents before xmas!

  • Scott Norcross

    Everything works very well and sounds awesome lol thanks for the post. I’ve got so many ICS things on my sensation now I may as well have ICS ;)

    Edit : I spoke too soon, I did everything correct as from what I’ve read, but the screen lock/unlock and audible touch sounds work when they want. I don’t understand what I could be doing wrong,

  • bryan

    Does anyone know why the odd format? I can’t get them to open on my incredible 2.

    • Chris Chavez

      You mean .ogg files? Those are the normal Android format..

  • Bryan Mordt

    I’m having trouble with the .ogg file format. My incredible 2 won’t even recognize the file format, what am I missing?


    • Chris Chavez

      Weird. That’s standard the standard Android audio format. Maybe try a reboot?

  • Jay

    The permissions are messed up if you are getting the unknown type error. Try setting them to Owner-execute/Group-read write execute/Everyone-read execute.

    • Scott Norcross

      They already had those permissions and still a no go

  • Droid

    oooh sad, why use WINDOW chris, window sucks!!. i just use Ubuntu n extract file, just simple. android is linux, why use window, come on chris. this site maybe called haahhahahaaaaaaaa

    • DerelictDan

      I suppose if you don’t know how to use Windows, it must suck to be you. How embarrassing to come out and post your shortcomings.

  • stkman34

    I can’t seem to get the screen press sounds to work. Everything else works great

    • mmmGadgets

      you sir are the man. +1

  • King Antonius

    Hey guys, tried to copy the ui folder to the system/media directory through adb, but got a fail due to it being a Read-Only file system. Can anyone tell me how to get past that?

    • tagno25

      adb remount

      • King Antonius

        Thanks for the reply. For the record, what I had to do was type:
        adb shell sysrw
        adb shell blah blah (push file more or less)
        adb shell sync
        adb shell sysro

        Not sure if the sounds work as I never had a lock ring sound or anything.
        Do I need to push to /system/media/audio/ui, or just /system/media/audio and expect the previous ui folder to be replaced?

        • Chris Chavez

          I just use Root File Explorer and mount system as R/W. Once the folder is replaced, I mount it back to R/O and reboot. Easy peasy. =)
