How do i delete/manage android system ringtones? pls
Wednesday 22nd of February 2012
I have a LG Doubleplay from t-mobile. i downloaded zedge's app from the android market and started setting up my tones. i accidntly pushed the button that said 'set as android system tones' or somethings simular, i can't get it to pop back up. now the tones i delete from zedge stay in my ringtones list but the connected media file is gone after i delete it so it gives me the default android tone instead. this is driving me nuts. i didn't know it would do this and i have dozens of broken tones in my ringtones/notifications lists that i now have to scroll through can anyone help? where can i find the folder with the system's ringtones? how do i get them off my list...i've already tried a factory data reset.
Where is system/apps folder?
Friday 05th of October 2012
Hi guys. Newbie here. So I've rooted my Samsung galaxy s3 and have been trying to install an app. I've read in many places about simply copying the .apk file to the system/apps folder but I can't seem to find this folder on my phone. On my sdcard (using ES file explorer), I see folders such as Alarm, Android, DCIM, Media, smvvm, etc. but no System folder. Please tell me where I can find it. Thanks!
Where does the phone store sms files???
Monday 18th of July 2011
I have been using a file manager to try and find the text files for my LG Vortex Android, but can't seem to find them. Everything i've read says I should either look in the SYSTEM folder and then find the sms folder, which doesn't seem to exist, or look in data/data/....mmssms.db but there is no "data" folder within my "data" folder... Does anyone know where the vortex actually saves the sms information, and how I could access it using a file manager? Thanks!Dave

Fastest Path from .TXT to Android Desktop
Thursday 05th of August 2010
There are several apps that a user create various files from an Android (textual documents, audio recordings, photos, links) and store them on a website where they can be accessed later from a desktop computer. I am looking for a way to do the reverse. I do a lot of data gathering from my desktop computer. I copy large amounts of text and links and paste them into either a .txt or .rtf file. What would be a simple method to send a .txt or .rft file from my desktop directly to my SD card AND create a shortcut link for it either on my Android desktop or in system folder somewhere that I can have a desktop shortcut to? I realize the solution might seem obvious, but while I am using my Android to view Google docs, or Evernote, or Snaptic it is not apparent to me how I can simply pull the document from the web and store it on my phone for quick access. I have tons of .txt and .rtf files that I would like to permantly store on my SD card, so whatever quick method you know of will be uber helpful. Thank you!
Ready-To-Play version of DSIXDA's Android Kitchen
Monday 29th of October 2012
Okay, so I know I've been promising this for a while now, but I'm busy, guys, busy! lol So finally... here it is! From reading through some of the posts here, I've noticed many of you have issues with getting the Kitchen to run properly on your Windows-based PCs. This should (hopefully) help you get around the cryptic installer for Cygwin as well as several other issues people have reported. Basically, this is a live folder version of Cygwin with the Kitchen scripts and folder structure already in place. All you have to do is install Java (which I've provided if you happen to not already have it) then copy the cygwin folder to the root of your C: drive. It may work no matter where you place it, but I've tested it on my system running Win7 Ultimate x64 with good results so far when placed in the root of C:.After installing (copying? lol) the main folder, you're ready to play No downloading packages, no complications, just copy and run.You'll need to place the ROM you're starting out with as your base in cygwinhomeownerKitchenoriginal_update before you begin.At this point, you ca
what folder can I add new ringtones to??
Friday 07th of June 2013
Regarding Android Jelly Bean version and my Verizon S4 (sch-i545)...I know that the native folder location for ringtones, alerts, and notifications is at /system/media/audio But, where can I create a folder on the sdcard (or ext_sdcard) to add my own ringtones?I've created and moved mp3's into the following folder structures, rebooted and still don't see them when I try to add new ringtones:sdcardmediaaudio
ingtones None of the 3 above folder structures work. Anyone have an idea or do I have to move mp3 files into the /system location?
Android Sound Effect "Ok Google", Where is it?
Tuesday 04th of March 2014
So I've become obsessed with customizing all sound effects on my new Nexus 5 phone. I've found the "system/media/audio/ui" folder and hooked it up with some neato sound effects. However there is one sound effect I can't find.When you say "ok google" it makes a sound. For the life of me I can not find where these sound effects are when you say "ok google" and the voice recognition feature pops up with its little chirp. Can anyone help me find where I can go to mod that sound effect?I'm also looking for the sound effect when you dial a number on the phone pad. Please help if you know where this is.Thank you !!!!
