Hey guys,

New here. I have been an android user/fan for years but I have mostly been a Samsung person, I recently got myself the new red 32GB Nexus 5 and it is a really different experience but I like it so far.

Anyhow I wanted to know where to go to change the notification sound for a low battery. I tried looking around in the settings but I can only find the option for changing the general notification sounds and not the sound for the low battery specifically.

If anyone knows how to do this and can help me out it would be appreciated! Thanks

It seems that you can do it with Battery Notifier.

Is there anyway to do it without using an external app? I know that somewhere in android is a place for the low battery notification sound because my Nexus 5 is completely in default mode and the sound for the low battery warning is totally different from any other notification sound I have heard from the phone thus far.

I am sure there is a folder somewhere in android where that sound is kept I just do not know where it is. If there really is no other way then I will try the app that you suggested but for a completely stock version of an open source OS there has to be a way to do this without using an app right?

Hi,

You need root, in /system/media/audio/ui/LowBattery.ogg

Rooting would void my warranty though right?

Thanks for your help. I guess now I have to decide if its worth it to me to go through the process of rooting my brand new phone just to change this one little sound. I know it wont void my warranty but the thought of rooting is still a little scary to me...it just seems so...permanent...

Not permanent, root: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2507905 and go back to stock/unroot: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2513701.

Read all closely, take your time and you should be good to go

Yes, maybe root only for a sound is not worth, but if you really change it, go!
