Angry Unable to change any type of ringtone or notification...

I just rooted a Zte 990g (Merit) and I am unable to change any ringtone or notification tone not even to the default sounds. I can locate them via File Manager and when I select the desired tone everything seems to work but when I recieve a call or text or notification the tone remains the same.. Any tips on how to fix this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

You can change the call ringtone but not the notification ringtone (texts, emails, alerts). If you so desire, you'd need to convert the file to an ogg file, and replace the tone in your /audio folder somewhere (somewhere in /system I forgot the exact folder location) and give it the same file name. For example, to use say the iPhone text tone, convert it to an ogg file, then replace any of the stock sounds like deardeer.ogg with the new sound but keep it the same name, deerdear.ogg, the name will remain the same but when selected as preferred sound, the tone will be correct.

I don't have to go through all of that. I just self the tone I want for ringer, email, text, toast, or what ever. Now camera click has to be done like that.

Any time I try it just gives me a strict list of default sounds found in the /system/media folder. Even if I download a new text tone to my SD card it won't display in the list, or allow any 'custom' setting at all. I'm stuck with stuff like beatbox, deardeer, and so on

Move them to the right folder or use a app to select them.
