Default Tasker app to remove usb plug sounds, and help with Bluetooth notifications

If you are like me and have become annoyed with few settings on the Atrix that were not on your last phone, then you might be able to benefit from some simple settings in tasker. Tasker is a Paid app that lets you change just about anything you don't like with your phone.

I have set up a few tasks to run on my phone that have helped me customize it in ways Motorola didn't allow. There are probably other ways to get the same result but the phone is new and i have not been able to find them. this could be a good thread to add any other options if you have them.

The atrix uses the default notification for plugging in the usb and also for mounting the sd card. here is how i use tasker to remove that.

Task to stop sounds while plugging in

1.new profile (name if desired)
2. state > USB Plugged
3. new task (*should name this one for use with the next one)
4. choose audio >silent mode
5. set mode to on for no sound (or vibrate to vibrate)
*note this puts the phone into vibrate mode or silent mode

6. click the plus to add more to the task
7. choose takser > wait choose time in seconds (i went with 5 seconds)
8 add another using the plus
9. choose audio >silent mode
10. set it to off

What this does-
when you plug the usb in it will change to silent or vibrate mode wait 5 seconds and go back to sound on
(if you desire it to stay in silent mode you will have to adjust settings)
*note you will hear about a half of a second of the notification until tasker kills it. (still better than before)
now if you want to mount the card to the computer it makes another sound


Task the mount sound to silent

1. new profile (name if desired)
2. select event >hardware
3. choose card mounted
4. choose the task you set up from the previous task

Task the unmount sound to silent

1. new task (name)
2. select event > hardware
3. choose card unmounted
4. choose the task you set up in the first task

a couple other things didn't work for me with bluetooth so i did some work arounds


I use the blueant Bluetooth and it reads the sms message to the headset. while a notification is sounding the bt audio is silenced for some reason so i would only catch the end of the message because the notification is going off

you can either set up vibrate mode while connected to bluetooth or make a task to do that only when an sms is received.

Set tasker to vibrate for sms so app can read the message.

1. new profile (name)
2. event > phone >Received text
3. click new task
4. start with audio >silent mode
5. set to vibrate
6. click plus to add
7. choose tasker > wait. i set to 30 seconds to allow the message to be read
8. click the plus to add more
9. audio > silent mode> set to off
10. go back and click on the profile and choose add
11. choose state >bt connected
11A if you want you can choose the BT device you use in this setting as long as it has been paired

* the end result leaves the phone with settings at normal sound

There is also a way to choose a notification to be played when you receive a text (since this does not happen) You can do this if you use BT but don't have an app for it that reads the text

I choose to make it play the audio file for ALL notifications to alert me through BT.

i will show both as they are similar except in one step


Task a media to be played to bluetooth

1. choose new profile (name)

2 a (for ALL notifications) choose >event UI > notification ((this will require you set permission in the settings for tasker (it will show you the option))
2b (for only text message) choose phone > received text
*only choose a OR b

3.choose new task media > Music play
4. search with the magnifying glass to find the file you want to play
5. now go back to the profile and click add
6. State > blutooth connected. (you can choose the BT device of your choice or leave it blank)

what it does-

option A plays the media file to BT when connected for ALL notifications to the phone

option B plays the media file to BT when connected and a TEXT message is recieved
happy tasking

I cant get the first profile to work properly. Every time i plug in I still hear the full sound. But the other two profiles for mount/unmount works, so at least that's good news.

Glad it worked. Not sure why the first profile isn't working. Delete it and start over. Maybe got something wrong? i use vibrate instead of off. maybe try that and see if it doesn it

I don't have an Atrix but Google led me to this thread and I finally found my answer to disabling the USB debugging notification sound. Thanks.

Glad its working, ive also been able to shut off sound on shutdown, then when the phone reboots, it waits 15 seconds and comes back on

no more annoying sounds
