    im using darchdroid v2.8 and it comes preloaded with a crap load of ringtones that i will never ever use. is it ok for me to go ahead and delete these? i know these are in /system/media/audio/ringtones but i'm not sure if it is ok to delete them? i tried to delete the ringtones from the rom before i flashed it but when flashing, it gave me an error that ringtones couldn't be found. i dont want to try and delete them and find out later that my phone can't reboot. just want to ask before i even attempt to. thanks

    Yeah, you can delete them like anything else.

    when i try to remove them through terminal at /system/media/audio/ringtones/ , it tells me that i cannot delete them because they are "read-only" files.

    EDIT: works through adb but didn't do it when i tried with terminal

    I've done it through Astro and E's before with no problems.
