    clear defaults for notification sound

    After flashing MIUI yesterday, I accidentally checked to default the selection for music when setting notification ringtone for Gmail. I can't find anywhere to clear that default setting so I can use Android system sounds. This setting covers all notification ring tones, not just for Gmail.

    Appreciate someone pointing my dumb ass in the right direction

    Thanks


    EDIT: Running D1-MIUI-1.3.25

    People say that if you play Microsoft CD's backwards, you hear satanic things, but that's nothing, because if you play them forwards, they install Windows.

    If at first you don't succeed, paint it shiny white and put an Apple logo on it. You can make a fortune on upgrades.

    The fix you provided is no longer visible. Was it an image or directions? I've mucked this up for myself and can't find the right application to clear the defaults for.

    Thanks for any assistance!

    Its directions, and they are available in that post that he linked to which says this:
    I think this should work to fix your issue. Go to Settings -> Manage Applications -> All

    Scroll down until you can find Music and select it.

    Scroll down near the bottom press the "Clear Defaults" button.

    Reboot your phone and it should be good.

    My bad, i didnt realize the word "this" was hyperlinked.

    I went to manage apps and found music, but the "Clear Defaults" button was greyed out. I "cleared Data" and restarted but that did not work.

    I go to change the notification sound in GMail and it jumps to Handscent SMS notification selection (which is the option i chose the first time when i selected "set as default". If i change it here then i change it for SMS, and i want them to be different.


    Id even be OK with clearing ALL defaults for the phone but cant find that either. I went through all the HTC services and com services but all of those have the "Clear Defaults" option greyed out.

    Can you offer any further insight into this?

    I did the exact opposite. I accidentally set the Android sounds to default. But this thread led me down the right path. You have to follow the same instructions, but clear defaults for "Android System" as opposed to the defaults for "Music".

    Kind of scary to think I'm clearing the defaults on "Android System" when all I want to do is choose an MP3 for my ringtone!
