Default Sony notification sounds?

The latest update got rid of the Sony notification sounds and replaced them with stock androids, which is all well and good, but I would still like to have them. Anybody have them in a zip?

Just head over to the android development section, download any older version of roms like 4.2, unzip it, locate the system folder/ media/audio/notifications, should be one of those Ogg files. Use root explorer or of your choice and move that or those Ogg files and replace your current ones or add and rmb to set the correct permissions.

Is your Xperia having issues? Try repairing it with Sony's PC Companion or Sony's Update Service first before posting.
Remember to back up your data before proceeding and do internal wipes [factory reset under settings] as well.

Use the latest FlashTool to flash FTF files if PCC and SUS fails to recognize/repair your Xperia.

My bad.

It's not my phone. A friend told me the update removed the playstation sounds and I took that to mean sound notification. I guess he's looking for the haptic feedback sound? I'm pretty sure changing the haptic feedback sound would require root, so he's SOL.

Yes, changing the UI sounds does require root.
Just in case you need them in future, here's a (non-flashable) zip of them all - Xperia_Z_UI_sounds.zip - 65.33 KB

yea that ui clicking sound is only one file and requires root.

if your friend is planning to root
system/media/audio/ui/ "effect_tick.ogg"

thats the only file you need to replace with the older effect_tick.ogg the permission of rw-r-r. or just flash the above file
