    i am not rooted...
    but is there a way to get the stock ringtones and notifications off the droid?

    or maybe someone has done this already and i can download it.

    i mainly want to do this so i can put it on a non droid phone.

    Patience, friend.

    Some of what you'd like to do may require root access. If you have a file manager like Astro (highly recommended) or Root Explorer, you would simply surf into the appropriate folder (someone jump in here) and copy the files into your sd card. Then move them off when you plug in your usb cable and mount the sd card on your pc.

    If my phone was rooted, I could tell you which folder. And if it was rooted, I'd copy my 'tones into a zip for ya. But alas...

    Is there something specific you're looking for? For example, the "Droid" notification has been pulled out and is posted in a buncha places on this forum. Just sayin'

    Good luck. :D

    Like the above poster said. Look for ringtones and notifications files. If you plug into pc, you will not need Astro. Astro is great for searching while not connected to a PC.

    Found them in
    /system/media/audio

    Used OI File Manager app (tapped home icon in opening screen). Was able to copy to SD card. Long pressed on file name, selected Copy, navigated to SD card, tapped Copy here.

    Not rooted.

    Using Root Explorer, you can multi-select and move all of them to your SD card (or delete them) at once.

    EDIT: Sorry, this solution is for rooted users only.
