    I want to remove ringtones from my droid1,I have multiple ringtones that I will never use. Some of them are doubles and triples of the same thing. I searched the forums and can't find any info on it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    You would have to be rooted and then you would find them in system/media and then either /ringtones or /notifications

    I am rooted. And did that,all I was able to do was delete the ringtones that was on my phone prior to rooting. I have multiple ringtones from other roms in ringtone settings, a hudge amount and have no way of deleting them. How do I get rid of those?

    If you have root explorer then you can mount the system as rw and delete all the additional files from system/media

    Have root explorer and went to system,after I made sure it was rw and found media,hit that it brought up all ringtones prior th rooting. Nothing on recent ringtones. That's what I want to get rid of, that's where I have all the multiple tones in.

    Hmmm interesting. And they're ringtones from roms you said? That means they're being saved to another location. Did you check sdcard/media/ringtones?

    Yep I did but not quite sure what they say they are in a format that I can't read. Data type and not sure what it means, in otherwords its greek to me. Lol and so I afraid that I might mess up and delete something very critical to my phone.
