Android - Custom Alarm tone in 5.1

This worked for my 5.0:

  • Stored the files in the Alarms folder (don't think this will be necessary)
  • Go to file with ES Explorer (or other file explorer)
  • Play the file with the built in media player of ES
  • Tap on settings
  • Set as ringtone and choose Alarm
  • Go to Clock > Alarms and use your new music file as wake up alarm

Probably there is a option (just once/always) for choosing a ringtone in the Alarm menu. I think, I clicked on always by accident. (clearing cache/setting did not worked out) But this will be a pretty simple work around ;)
