Question Question Screen Taps Hack? Pref. A .Cab Maybe?!?!?

Hello and good day everyone....

I was wondering and hoping there is an option to change the sound of the screen tap option on the Sprint Touch or any PPC for that matter.

Maybe like a bursting bubble noise or gun shot even? Does anyone have a way to change the OEM click sound, or better yet have a .Cab file (noob here) that would make it so I can change the "click"?

Thank you for reading, and I look forward to see what any of you come up with.

P.S. I would like to thank the members of this site for making me "love" my phone or any smartphone again for that matter. What has been developed thus far has made my use of the phone a BREEZE! Thank you!!!!

Re: Question Screen Taps Hack? Pref. A .Cab Maybe?!?!?

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Snd\Event]
".Scheme"="Curr0"
"EventMask"=dword:01F7ED
"EventCache"=dword:600
"Curr0"=multi_sz:"Alarm2","Empty","Alarm2","defaul t","Empty","Alarm2","infbeg","infend","infend", "Me nuPop","HWandSW","Empty","Alarm2","infbeg","infend ","infend","alarm2","Empty","Empty","voicbeep" ,"Re cEnd"

The entries in the "Curr0" key are the names of the .wav files found in the \Windows directory (minus the extension). Any sound file you want to use has to be a .wav file and be located in the \Windows directory.

You can do one of two things....change the name in the registry to the sound file you want (e.g. "MenuPop" to "gunshot"), or even easier, just find the sound bite you want to use, name it accordingly (e.g. "MenuPop.wav") and copy it to the \Windows directory, "overwriting" the file in ROM. Soft reset, and you should be able to hear your new sound.

Awww I got too excited. This doesn't change the 'screen tap' sound You know the sound where you go to Settings>Personal>Sounds&Notifications>Screen Taps (Soft)

None of the .wav files in \Windows\ are the same as the screen tap sound.

Are found here:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ControlPanel\Volume]
;enable screen taps Unchecked (off)
"Screen"=dword:1000
;enable screen taps Soft
;"Screen"=dword:1
;enable screen taps Loud
;"Screen"=dword:1002

Same goes for Hardware buttons:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ControlPanel\Volume]
;enable Hardware Buttons Unchecked (off)
"Key"=dword:1000
;enable Hardware Buttons Soft
;"Key"=dword:1
;enable Hardware Buttons Loud
;"Key"=dword:1002


The default sound is "hwandsw.wav" located in \windows. In the kitchen it is usually located in the ..\kitchen\sys\shell directory. I couldn't find a spot in the registry to replace it, you'll have to replace it with resco or inside your kitchen. See my tutorial in my sig on Adding Files and Personal Stuff....

EDIT: If you feel bold and don't mind reflashing your device if you mess up, try replacing some of the "Empty" entries in [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Snd\Event] key...
But this one appears to be hard-coded into windows...

Are you 100% certain this file controls the screen taps? I've replaced it with Resco, soft-reset and nothing...same sound

Also when I load up WMP and play hwandsw.wav, it sounds nothing like the screen tap. Could someone please confirm this for me, I can't believe I can't find the sound file for the screen tap! I've listened to all the .wav files in \windows\
