Default [Q] How to change notifications and ringtones

Hi

Apologies if i have not worded my quetion properly

I have had android phones before but never played about with them before in terms of rooting.

I do not like the notification sounds on my htc one m8, previously i had a Samsung galaxy S4 and have copied the sound files from it

i want to copy the notifications ringtones alarms and ui folder from samsung s4 to htc one m8 system folder without root

how can i do that?

I have ES File Explorer on my htc one m8.

as i have never done this can someone please provide novice step by step instructions

You have ringtone, alarm and notification folders on the internal memory. Put them in there.

Ok that is fine but what about the system notifications in the UI folder should i put them in the notifications folder also or create a UI folder in the internal memory?

You can't change the system notifications without rooting your phone and then overwriting the appropriate sound files or changing some system xml files.
