    Build 10136 made things a lot more stable but also removed (hopefully temporarily) custom notifications. I had a Fast Ring update this morning but it still didn't fix it (it brought back speech to text in twitter though).

    Anyway, I found a hack for the missing custom notifications that this morning.

    I use an app called Melodia to grab cool notification sounds, a lot from iOS and Android too which, admittedly, are a lot better than the stock Windows ones.

    If you run up Melodia and pick a sound, you can apply it there and then to a notification. Lo and behold, if you do it on the Win 10 build, it takes you back into the old Win 8.1 notifications and actions screen, which must still be, lurking under the covers of Win 10.

    It doesn't change anything in the Win 10 notifications screen but it applies the sound.

    It may work for other apps too, so worth trying out.

    YOU ARE THE REAL MVP!!!

    But you don't need to select a sound first. Just slide up from the 3 dots at the bottom and tap notifications + actions and it will bring up the screen.

    Every so often something old pops up in WP10. I got the old lock screen one time after the new one crashed. Wish the old people app could be hacked into.

    You can use this, Tonality | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States) as well. Tonality is a similar app.

    However, I think many people are still having issues with Text notifications working. They work at first, then just stop. It forced me to roll back. I have to have notifications for my text messages working consistently or its just a no go to stay with this build. I did a hard reset and fresh install with no back up, and it did not solve the problem.

    Yes, text notifications are still an issue.

    Notifications are still broken and the individual pinned people tiles too.

    This problem with Text Message notifications is getting me, too. I suppose until I can have a chance to roll back, I'll have to check my phone every 5 minutes.

    Good spot! You need to select the sound to store it, but the ellipsis is a good way to change them afterwards.
