    I'd like to add some different notification sounds for notifications, like email or a text. The ones that come with it aren't going to do the trick. On my HTC Evo, there was a notifications folder and I just copied what I wanted put it in there and it showed up in the list to choose from. This one, no such luck. I can't find the folder with the already installed sounds to add to them. I've rooted it with FRAMAROOT, installed SuperSU and run root check pro. According to it, I do have root access and SuperSU is installed. I still can't find where to put the sound files. Have I not done something correctly?
    To get more ringtones to choose from I made a folder called Ringtones, put it on the SD card and they showed up in the list to choose from. So I made one called Alerts and put it in, that's not working either. So where have I gone wrong?

    Out is on sdcard0, media/audio/notifications. You can set it to work with the sd card also. I use RecForge Lite.

    Hmm, I didn't have that folder. I made a media/audio/notifications folder and put it on the SD card, it still can't find it. I checked to see how it worked on the Evo, it was just on the SD card as Alarms folder and a Notifications folder, they weren't in any other folders. I know this is a Samsung, not a Evo but something must be wrong here. Thank you though!

    Setting MP3 as custom notification tone

    Unlike with ringtones, you cannot directly set an MP3 file as notification alert through the Settings menu or via the Music Player app. You have to manually set the music file to use it as a notification alert. Heres how to do it:
    1.Copy the needed MP3 files to your phone.
    2.Launch a file manager app (e.g., My Files app, ES File Explorer, and the like) on your phone.
    3.Locate the desired MP3 file and copy it to the Notifications directory inside the phones internal storage (usually /storage/sdcard0). If you dont see the Notifications directory, manually create it before copying the MP3 file into it. Just create new folder and name it 'Notifications'.
    4.Go back to the main homescreen and open the Settings menu.
    5.Go to Sound > Device notifications and select the newly added MP3 file on the list.
