    I know a lot of people hate it but I still love it. It appears they have taken away the word droid as a notification sound. Is there anyway to get it back?

    The Nexus is not a Droid phone so it won't have it.

    If you find the sound file you'll be able to put it on your Nexus and set it up as a notification.

    Droid is what Verizon calls their lineup of android phone; droid razr, droid incredible, droid bionic, etc. Phones like the Thunderbolt and the Nexus don't fall into this category. The Nexus is a "pure" Google phone. They all have android, but not all the phones on Verizon are Droids.

    This is a common misconception about Android because Verizon pushes Droid so much.

    Oh, Thanks. I thought the words android and droid were interchangeable. There is so much to learn!

    Glad to have the Droid sounds off my device. Now, to have the music that the Techno-Twins, Slad and Vieter, were rocking from the AT&T commercial...

    I posted this for someone else as well. My link: Droid Sound.

    Drop this file here: sdcard/Notifications

    Once you do that, it will appear as a selection under your current notifications. Enjoy your droid sound on a non-Droid device :)

    If you want more classic droid sounds, I would download Pete's Bugless beast for OG (or another ROM) and find the notification folds, sort through the ones you want the put them on your SD.
