It has been pointed out here that some of you don't like the annoying volume-up and volume-down sounds...

As you might know, those files are just 7 mp3 files in /system/media/audio/ui (in STOCK based ROMs)

You can replace them by silence...

Download THESE and put them in your ui folder...

Go to recovery and execute these commands:

adb shell mount /system
adb push volume-1.mp3 system/media/audio/ui/volume-1.mp3
adb push volume-2.mp3 system/media/audio/ui/volume-2.mp3
adb reboot (to reboot your phone)

EDIT: Removing those sounds works just as fine, so instead remove them via RootExplorer

(I've found out that some ROMs play strange sound instead of silence )

But it si possible that other ROMs has these sounds elsewhere, so try searching for .wav/.mp3/.ogg file in the ROM...

It is also possible these are packed in some .apk file as a resource...in that case you need to find what .apk file it is, decompile it, replace those sounds, recompile it and push back....

I hope this helps someone

And of course hit that THANKS button if you like it

i assume you forgot to mention, that modifiying the system requires root? to me the thread-title kinda looks like it could work for everybody, since usually root-modifications have a [root] within the title...

Sorry about confusion, but modifying anything in the system does require root...
Nevertheless I'v updated the thread headline
