    You have to rename them to lock and unlock in /system/media/sounds/notifications

    Did you fix their permissions after you moved them around with RootExplorer?

    Its pretty easy. I have followed the following instructions and it works great.

    Instructions

    (This can be done with any sound in the UI sectin)
    1. Open Root Explorer go into /system/media/audio/notifications/
    2. Pick your desired notification sound and copy it
    3. Press back once, and then press /ui
    4. Press the mount r/w button in the top right corner.
    4. Rename either Unlock.ogg or Lock.ogg (whichever one you are replacing) to .ogg.bak, so you can switch it back if you don't like it.
    5. Paste your notification into /ui, and rename it to whichever you just renamed to .bak.
    6. Close root explorer and reboot
    7. Unlock/Lock your phone and enjoy!

    *Note* To hear these sounds, you must go into settings>sounds> and check screen lock sounds.
