Using custom sounds for Notification and Alarm on HTC One M8

This is really an old trick, but worth to show again.

You can use most types of sound-files, using mostly MP3/OGG/FLAC  myself.

It’s pretty easy and straightforward:

  • connect phone to computer (shown on windows 8 here), open the storage.
  • Choose to either, you don’t have to create all. If you just want custom alarms, just create the alarms folder:
    • create folders notifications, alarms and ringtones as separate folders.
    • [shown as gallery] Create a folder called Media and in that create a folder called Audio, and under that create alarms, notifications and ringtones
  • Copy the sounds you want to use into the folder of choice.
  • Done!

But, I want Sense 4 alarms!

I’ve got you covered, find those HERE. You’ve got sound packs from pretty much every Sense version there, and some others.
