Default Notification bug workaround

Hi,

Fresh new owner of the phone, I'm also concerned by the "bug" (if it can be called a bug) of the stuttering notification sound.

I did a quick fix of it, just by modifying the sound file and adding a blank in the begining of the sound.

You can find attached a modified "notification" sound that fix the stuttering for me.

To use it, copy the file in any place of the phone (I put it in root of sdcard) and then select it in notification sound menu, hit the quaver symbol in upper right corner and find it in the "Xperia" artist name, sound name should be "Notification_mod".

Enjoy

I just cut and appended less than a second of blank audio to the beginning of my chosen notification mp3 file.
I used an old version of sony soundforge i had on my desktop, but should be lots of free audio editing software available i imagine?

great idea man, thanks!

one thing though: the file you posted isn't silent at the start - it's like an echo in reverse. i thought it was a bug - like the phone was doing something weird playing two notifications...

anyway i made my own and it works great cheers man
