    Is there any way that you can move files such as audio files to the internal memory without using a custom ROM? I'd like to transfer a notification alert sound from my SD card an put it on the phone itself.

    You would likely have to use some type of file manger mabye?. You might have to have root. Not sure there. Or you could do it with adb with the android sdk but that would probably need root too.

    Root would depend on the directory that the file you want is in.

    When I try to move it over in File Manager it say "Insufficient Permission"

    I want the file in /system/media/notifications

    If you're rooted, you can use the command line (adb shell is your best bet). You may need to remount the /system partition if that's where you want to put them. The remount command for ally is:

    mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system


    If you're looking for GUI, I have no idea.

    That means you would need to be rooted to copy it.

    Your best bet and easiest way is using adb as stated above.

    My phone dosent have a /system/media/notifications
    I have /system/media/audio/notifications

    I assume you mean that directory. :p

    Tell me exactly which file and i'll pull it and upload it for you if you would like.

    yeah. you have to be rooted but not on a custom rom. you can also do it from terminal emulator on your phone.

    I am hesitant to root my Ally just because I am worried I will brick the darn thing.

    Pretty much it is the Droid X sound theme. I like how my brother's Droid X sounds and trying to replicate it on the Ally.

    Hehe im not aware of what the droidx sound is or what it would be called.

    But yeah as stated above you'd have to root to move it there.

    Well the main one is the DROID trademark sound plus they have other technology type sounds. I figured if I could get the Droid.ogg one to work first I could find the others later and go one by one getting the theme to work.

    got it to finally work.

    cat /sdcard/file.ext > /system/folder/file.ext

    That formula ended up getting it from point a to point b
