Default is there a solution to disable the wireless charging sound?

it's quite loud when you're setting it down at night after a brief check. seems to be louder than the other volumes for some reason too.

Yes but you need root. And the modification would mean no OTA updates too.

Oddly with this particular sound, you cannot even delete it. You must replace it with a "silent" .ogg file. It cannot even be a text file renamed .ogg either. It must be a genuine ogg file, with no audio in it.

Then you have to put that in /system/media/audio/ui and it must be called WirelessChargingStarted.ogg

There MAY be an xposed module to do it too. I dont know it though.

edit> Here's my silent ogg that I use

Thanks so much for the solution. One thing I had to do when using your ogg was to change permissions to -rw -r -r. If the permissions were not correct it was playing the default notification sound even though I had your file in place.

I can now charge my phone at night without worrying about waking the wife

I can't seem to find the system folder from the android file transfer app. Do I need another program to find this file? I'm on a mac.

Oh should have figured. So no way to disable this without rooting the phone?
