How To Change The Annoying Bubble Touch Sound on Samsung Galaxy Devices!

Samsung has first introduced the “Bubble” touch sounds on Galaxy S3 then followed it on the Galaxy S4, S5, Note 3,  and Note 4. It might be really annoying to hear this specific touch sound over and over again especially if you’re fan of Galaxy S or Galaxy Note series or just used to Samsung products.  In this guide I will show you how to change that annoying touch sound and replace it with yours! Let’s get started.

 

Requirements:

1. A Rooted Samsung device.

2. ES File Explorer (Google Play Link).

 

STEPS:

1. Open ES File Explorer app.

7. The bubble touch sound is enabled when you tap on a specific thing or when you tap on the back button, so there are TWO of them.

8. Search for “S_HW_Touch.ogg” and “TW_Touch.ogg”.

9. Rename those two original sounds to another name.

9. Prepare the sounds that you want to replace it with the above files.

10. Rename your new files to “S_HW_Touch.ogg and “TW_Touch.ogg”.

11. You can set one sound instead of two sounds, but that depends on your liking.

12. Copy your new files to the ui directory
