    Hey I am right there with ya OP. I love the "Droooooooiiiiiiidddddd" notification and used it for my text messages. I am going to try to email it to myself from my husband's X. Otherwise I am sure it is online somewhere.

    The Zedge ringtones app has the Droid sound, and you can set it as the notification right from the app. I actually downloaded the one called "Droid kills iPhone" because it made me chuckle.

    If it works anything like the Desire HD/Inspire, you should be able to use a file managing app (such as Astro) and create a folder named "notifications" and once you place the sound you want in there, it should show up as a choice in the selection screen.

    No I'm not. Everyone I know with a droid likes the "Drrrooiiiiddd" sound. And yes I have TB but what does that have to do with me getting custom notifications to work?

    I have the ogg file but I had no idea how to get it to work.

    I copied over my old media folder from the DX and it works great! Thank you.

    The path I used.
    SDCard/Media/Audio/Notifications

    FWIW, while this works, I noticed that upon reboot all the ringtones and notifications get set back to default, which is a pain.

    I just don't see what the big appeal with that sound is, it's fine if I'm at home or in the car, but if I'm in a store, at a casual restaurant, or some place that is on the quiet side, having a very load DROOOIIIDDDD sound makes everyone look at you. Then there are times when I get several texts at once.

    Create the folder on your SDCard. It stays after boots for me.

    That's what Silent mode or vibrate is for.

    I meant the Zedge ringtones specifically, which I had previously suggested using.

    There are several occasions where a short, simple beep or tone is acceptable, but not a loud DROOOIIDDD sound, and also where vibrate or silent would cause you to not realize you received a text.

    I too love the DROID ringtone. My bf got annoyed with me saying it along with the ads too.
    Anyway...
    I copied all my ringtones into a notification folder but when I try to assign a new ringtone only ONE of my custom ringtones shows up on the list to choose from.

    I can go to settings>ringtones and create one from an existing music track but talk about tedious.
