    Is it possible to have the Pre make a sound when you receive a Facebook notification? I'd like to be able to customize it separate from my texts and e-mails if possible.

    Yes, I would like that too. I find it weird that not many people ask for it.

    To be fair, it is a functionality that already should ship with the HP Facebook app, just like how the (fairly amazing) 3rd party foursquare app has its own notification tone.

    Exactly. Foursquare app is excellent and it is "home-made".

    So is this even possible?

    I've created a patch that suppose to do it, but since I'm not an active Facebook user I can't tell whether it works or not, so please try it and tell me if it works.
    It's for the 1.5.6x version of the phones Facebook app. Won't patch earlier versions.

    EDIT: It's working. I will submit it to Preware.
    EDIT2: As I thought, app specific patches cannot be submitted to Preware through the patches portal. Well, that meant that you'll have to install it manually.

    You can replace the soundClass: 'notifications' in the patch with soundFile: filepath (replace filepath with the full path of some sound file on the device. For ex: "/media/internal/music/song.mp3") and then reapply the patch.

    Great patch!! Have you thought about using Tweaks to set the notification sound? Rather than having to manually change the file location after applying the patch, you could use Tweaks with a filepicker variable so that all anyone needs to do is select the sound file within Tweaks and have it applied through your patch. Might make it even more user friendly =)

    It's a good idea, but it'll require packing the patch in an IPK, and I don't want to do that. I want the user to see what he is installing (or install from a trusted source like Preware).

    Tried the changes in the patch, isagar said and now I have my custom sound for the notifications.

    However, please have in mind something.
    If you install the patch and for some reason you want to remove it, the FB app is not launching anymore.
    You have to uninstall the app and then install it again from the App Catalog. Then you will have again your FB app and you can patch it again if you like.
    It's a procedure that takes 1-2 minutes, so it's not that a big deal.
    isagar explained to me the reason for it.
    So if you want to install the patch and maybe later make your own sound or something, have it in mind.
