    how did you set your own mp3 as ringer, do you just upload the mp3 file via usb cable, then delete oma_ringtonesize.dat & oma_ringtone.dat insdie dload folder. or you still need to use the hex editor to mod the file in the file system?

    Doesn't power cycling update your dat files for images and such?

    I know with the 8500, just a reboot doesn't quite do it. But when you upload say a video (3g2) and then turn the phone off, pull the battery for about 10 seconds, then return the battery and turn the phone back on. It adds the files to the internal index lists and shows in the phone.

    Now as for mp3's.... Couldn't tell you, being the 8500 doesn't have the DRM issue.

    How does the ContentInfo and ExecutionInfo in the brew/16452/ams/db folder look?

    Anyone have them before downloading anything from telus?

    I'm wondering if they are the same format as the 8500's.....

    yes, it is different, that has already been established. the main difference being of course the DRM issue with the ringtones. My question is, has anyone tested the removal of the dat files yet?

    I removed the "oma_ringtonesize.dat" & "oma_ringtone.dat", then reboot the pc, but it doesn't help..

    phones can be quite diffrent, despite being the same model across of carriers. The way things are programmed into it can vary greatly, as are the loopholes to get around said programming.

    Though i do appreciate anyones input

    I got it to work!
    I have the usb driver installed but i dont know if it needs it since I used bluetooth but heres what i did:

    1. set up your bluetooth connection and note the com port it uses (mine was comport 5)
    2. open bitpim and go to edit>settings
    3. set the phone type to LG-VX8000 (not sure if it has to be set to this)
    4. manually set the com port
    5. open the filesystem
    6. go to the brew>16452>mds directory
    7. paste your ringtones
    8. go to the DLOAD folder
    9. delete oma_ringtone.dat & oma_ringtonesize.dat
    10. power cycle phone (just right click anywhere in filesystem and select reboot phone) you dont need to "send phone data" in bitpim. a power cycle is sufficient.
    11. check your phone and they should be there

    I realize this is basically just a re-post of what has been said before but hopefully it will clear things up for ppl who are/were having trouble.

    on further review the method i listed above only allows you to view and play the files. when you try to set them as a ringtone it says: NON-DRM media can not be used for ringtone.

    i've tried changing the file type to 3gp and dm but neither of them have worked for me. I have also tried adding DRM using the sony ericsson and Nokia software. That didnt work either. So at this point I'm out of ideas please help
