How do i delete/manage android system ringtones? pls


Wednesday 22nd of February 2012 / forums.androidcentral.com
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 / forums.androidcentral.com
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 / androidforums.com
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

Full system backup, root not required, ICS only


Wednesday 23rd of May 2012 / forums.androidcentral.com
Download and Install the Acer usb drivers if you do not already have them installed. Download and install the Android SDK if you do not already have it installed.Note: This could take a while. Connect the tablet to pc via usb cable. Navigate to the following folder C:Program FilesAndroidandroid-sdkplatform toolsNote: change C: to the appropriate drive letter if C: is not where your program files are stored. Hold down the shift button and right click an empty space inside the folder. Select open command window here. adb backup is the command that will allow you to create a full system backup. Type adb backup at the prompt. This will create a backup using the default settings, which is to only backup application and device data to the current directory. Other options are available, will discuss shortly. On your tablet a screen will appear: Enter your password and select backup my data. Once the backup is complete verify that the file backup.ab exists in the directory specified, and make sure it does not have a file size of 0 KB. To restore, navigate to the same folder refer

Fastest Path from .TXT to Android Desktop


Thursday 05th of August 2010 / androidforums.com
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 / androidforums.com
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

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 ingtonessdcardmedia ingtonessdcard ingtones None of the 3 above folder structures work.
