    I suggest that everyone that wants to be able to mod their BBv0.6.1, to move their ringtones to the sdcard/media/audio/ringtones & their notification tones to sdcard/media/audio/notifications...

    This will free up enough space in the system partiton so that themes and subthemes can be applied...

    Just FYI and a suggestion...;/.

    People don't already keep them on the SD card?

    Not the ones that comes with Pete's ROM, usually they seem to leave them in the system partition

    When I try to move them using Astro, it doesn't seem to move them.

    I can copy them to the SD card but when I go to delete them from the phone it wont let me. Is there another way to do this?

    You need to gain permission(s) to the system files first (i.e. they are copy protected). You can select this in Pete's ROM Toolkit or use a terminal.

    Quickest way:

    I'm a newbee and have stock phones. I'm using Astro. I can locate ringtones/notifications that I have added to the phone. I can't find the original ringtones to copy to my sd card.

    My goal is to copy ringtones/notifications from a R2D2 phone, then copy to a D2G phone using Astro.

    I tried a search on one of the ringtones but Astro didn't find it, so I don't know where to look for ringtones/notifications so I can copy to the sd card.

    Thanks!
