    Custom ringtones won't work

    I have GummyJar 2.5 installed, no theme, and I can't get the custom ringtones to work. I can set the ringtone in the contact options, but it's always the default that rings.

    What gives?

    Individual contact ringtones wont work on Droid X

    I have run into a similar problem with my Droid X. The individual contact ringtones wont play when i get incoming calls, instead it plays the default ringtone. I noticed this so I powered my phone down and started back up and it worked fine for a few minutes, then back to not working. Please Help

    FC127, I would recommend copying the ringtones to the phone's system directory. That's what I did.

    Place the files in a folder on your sdcard, for example, "tones"
    The rest of it is as follows: (you better be rooted )

    Using Terminal Emulator, execute these commands:
    Code:
    mount -o rw,remout -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system
    cp /sdcard/tones/file.mp3 /system/media/audio/ringtones/file.mp3
     ---repeat above line for all ringtones---
    mount -o ro,remout -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system
    sync
    reboot

    wdcspurs, I don't know how to access the System directory using the Terminal Emulator.
    You might have to do some research into it, but the general idea should be the same.
