    I gather .ogg is a sound file type that the DX (and prob others) for ringtones and such.

    I see where it keeps them in the system/media/audio/notification or ringtones. Seeing that the DX can use even mp3 format for ringtones, can I put in any format file to the notifications folder and subsequently use that as a notification tone instead of the factory notification sounds?

    I have quite a few downloaded clip files that are just quick mp3's that I used to have on my BB, which could assign any sound for any thing, email text, call, calendar, alarm. The DX can't assign custom sounds except for ringtone. email text and such, is sol (that is unless I'm missing something).

    Yes, I know I could run another app to get around it, but I'm not interested in using another app for just ringtones and sounds. I would like to just place files in there and have it work that way if possible.

    Mmmm...nope. Using Astro, it won't let me move or copy anything from my sdcard (.mp3) to the system/media/audio/ringtones or /notifications. It's a grayed out option.

    I believe anything /system...will be mounted r/o, so you'll need a root explorer to mount the folder r/w to copy things to it.

    hmmm. I haven't used root explorer yet...just haven't the need. Till now...lol.

    I suspect it's easier than I think it is. Root Explorer is the paid app right?

    Yeah, this was my first app I paid for and I don't regret one cent of it. Essential for a rooted phone.

    Root Explorer will pay for itself the first time you use it, a must have for a rooted phone.

    Navigate to sdcard, long Pres file, select move, navigate to location you want it to be, click on the R/W button, and click paste.

    I also use root explorer, and a file manager specifically for my sd card. Sometimes i feel a little crowded in root explorer when i'm only trying to browse my sd card. The file manager app with the white file icon in the market is light but very efficient.

    Yup, I actually just figured it out right before I checked the thread again. I think a reboot was necessary after moving in order for the files to showon the actual settings menus. Nice how you can move and mount multiple files per folder too. Very cool.

    I love having control of the phone. Really...its nice to be able to manipulate basically every facet of it.
