    Hello everyone. I hope im posting this in the right spot. I have a rooted galaxy prevail and i was messing around in the downloads folder. I deleted a few things from the folder and now when someone calls me my phone will not ring at all. I have tried to set different ringtones but it doesn't work. If i get a text message the notification sound still works like normal. What have i done? Can i fix this? I have titanium backup installed. Will titanium fix this? I hope someone can help me. Thanks in advance.....:eek:

    Start small, make sure volume is up? Open menu/settings/sound/ check your ringtone? if you change it will it play?
    Make sure you didnt put it in silent mode by chance, though that seems less likely since you here text notifications.
    Also did you use custom ringtones?
    Perhaps you deleted your ringtone accidently.

    I think we first need to determine where exactly in the phone file system you were. In order to delete something important you would need to have root access, I think you said you do. Then you would need to have a file manager / explorer which one do you use?

    then can you remember the folder you entered? example /data/app
