Hello - sorry to open it all up again.
I have a hero (2.1 modaco rom , just installed )
I used above methods before rom flash, and had custom ringtones& notification. Default ringtone is no problem as you can set that from the file itsself wherever it is (set as ringtone) Notifications don't have that facility.
Now as above i cannot access my custom ringtones. . I have tried all paths --- ended up having made and copied mp3s to:
/system/media/audio/notifications (the mp3s are listed there, right alongside all the stock tones) [using roote explorer for access here]
the mp3s exist in all of these locations now, but from the SMS messages programme, the list of notifications offered still does NOT include my custom tones.
Perhaps I ought to mention that, i thought I got it working yesterday, using the root folder, but it seems to have reverted. i wouldn't swear to it though as my brain has ssoftened recently !!!
