    i recently downloaded some mp3 ringtones from myxer.com a few of them werent what i thought they were, so i want to delete them but i cant figure out how! i tried using both astro and aplayer to get into my system and sd folders but i cant find these goddamn files anywhere.
    under system/media/ringtones it only shows the ringtones that came with the phone. i tried everything( or so i thought, but im new to this!) any help would be appreciated!! thank you!!!!!!!!!!

    I download wallpaper from g1wallz.com and it goes to my downloads folder. Then using astro I "move" it to the wallpaper folder. So check the downloads folder.

    Using astro...check your sd card and there are a variety of folders one of mine is the downloads folder.

    Using "ASTRO" ... press 'Menu' ... then Application Manager ...
    Astro will read the apps installed ... then you can long-press any app and select delete...

    you can also do full backups (except paid apps) and restore apps that have been backed up ...

    I have never had these problems with ASTRO ....

    Power off the phone,
    Take the SDcard out of the phone,
    Use a card reader and you PC to Look through the all the files on the SDcard...
    If you dont find them here. then the ringtones are stored in a folder on the phone ... probably under /system/media/audio/ringtones (are ringtones that came on the phone and can not be deleted without root access.

    normally for created ringtones, or downloaded ones they will be stored on
    the SDCard in directory /sdcard/media/audio/ringtones
    They can not be deleted with astro ... but can if in a dedicated card reader ... also should be deleted if you connect the phone via USB and then mount the SDCard ... then via the computer you should be able to delete the ringtones you want to ...

    try this...download astro
    download wallr (a wallpaper rotation tool, very cool)
    visit g1wallz.com on the g1
    find a wallpaper you like
    click into the wallpaper from the thumbnail and get a bigger version.
    long press on the image, it will offer the option to save the image
    save it.

    go into astro
    navigate to /sdcard
    note that my folders in /sdcard don't appear exactly in alphabetical order
    I have a folder called /download
    All apps and imgs I have downloaded are located there.

    Do you at least see that?

    my boyfriend has a card reader. ill have him hook it up. i have a mac.
    hopefully ill be able to find out where these are downloading to. since then i am only using steel as my browser
    yea and the only ringtones under system/media/audio/ringtones are the ones that came with the phone. i guess its a mystery.
    thanks though i will def try hooking it up to my comp and see if i can find it

    Jim might be a better source since I don't use the steel browser.
