I found this yesterday when i was pissed off, that i don't hear sound notification,
that my battery is low and my phone turn off outside when i need it working.

My first "discovery" (maybe everyone know that, for me this is new) is that in \Windows\
is sound file lowbatt.wav and this file is sound of low battery notification, so we can replace in by any sound we want.

I lookin for registry assocation of this file and then i found how to enable "Low battery" possition
in Settings>Sounds and notifications>tab "Notifications">first drop-down list.

To enable this option please import REG file from attachments. It casuse in this drop-down list appear "Battery low" option.
If you want to have this possition in your language, there is source code and you can modify "Battery low" from las line,
copy this whole code, paste to PC Notepad and save as "*.*" and file name *.REG and in next step send it to phone
and import to registry with Resco Registry:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

@="Battery low"
In attachment you can find my custom sound - alert sound like from Avast Antivirus.

Update (25-07-2010):
I created CAB, which enable "Battery low" menu and replace original lowbatt sound.

Update (15-08-2010):
I modified my CAB. Now "Repeat" option is unlocked too.

Unlock all notification methods
I discovered another thing: how to unlock all notification methods (except "Repeat") for selected
notification like in screenshot in first post.
All totifications are placed in registry in:
and this branch's looks like {15F11F90-......}
(this branch corresponds for "Notifications" option in notifications drop-down list).
To activate all notification methods we need enter to this branch and delete DWORD named "AvaibleOptions".

This is it - all methods will be unlocked now (except "Repeat" of course).

That are branch's:

This positions can be activated and appear on drop-down list by editing first string vaule (Default) and enter in "String" for ex. "UnknownNotification1".

Please if anyone feel, that can help with this, so let me know. Any help is welcome.

UPDATE (15-08-2010):
I looking for some info how to unlock and enable "Repeat" function for notifications and i found it on forum.
I decided to make REG Tweak to unlock this option for all notifications.
This tweak is CABbed like usual

Wow good work, just got my hd2 and want to mess with the notification settings.
Be great to see a cab that unlocks all of them including the unnamed ones so that we can choose in the normal settings

There is REG file which enable 4 hidden notifications. Other branch's dont having path's to wave file, so i ignore them.

When you test it i recommand to enable on screen notifications - it helps to indentify it.

Going to do some testing on my old touch diamond see if I can get them all unlocked even without sound, then that way people can set sounds and other options later.

I waiting for replies about this new notifications.

I uploaded battery low alert sound to first post in two recognized formats: WAV and WMV. You can copy both files to \Windows\ folder to later select it in settings.

Thanks. Just what I was looking for. I wasn't searching actively, but somehow I discovered your topic, which looks very useful.

I'll report my findings.

This is great!

But may I ask: At what percentage of the battery remaining will the notification "ring"?
