    Lightbulb How to: Get standard 5.0 ringtones sounds alerts notifiers on a 9800?

    This thread is somewhat obsolete, please see here first:
    http://forums.crackberry.com/f209/ot...-6-0-a-564259/

    You may have noticed that the 9800 includes some new alerts/ringtones...but is missing pretty much everything else!

    I've done some searching and a lot of trial and error...but haven't managed to move the ringtones from my 9000 to my 9800. Can't send via bluetooth. Can't copy from the system to media card or internal storage and then move to 9800...

    This is probably something fairly easy but as I've never played with the ringtones on my 9000, I'm a little lost on how to move them to my 9800.

    Thanks in advance.

    *OLD* SOLUTION (see link above first):


    Ok there are two methods. An easy one and a slightly more difficult but better method. Both should work on ANY BlackBerry with OS 6.0!

    1) Easy: Download the ringtones to your computer and put them in your internal storage or media card "ringtones" folder. These seem to be very slightly lower quality and if your phone is in mass storage mode the ringtones/alerts will temporarily be changed to default because the phone cannot access the ringtones in the storage/media card.

    Download this:
    Rapidshare Ringtones ZIP file

    Unzip and put whichever ringtones you want in your ringtones folder on your phone - you can use the 4GB internal storage card or the MicroSD card for this.

    Pull the battery to reboot.

    2) Harder (but better): Use BBSAK to install the .cod files that contain the old ringtones. This is the only way to get the ringtones on the system memory that is always accessable. You will not be able to specify which ringtones are installed - aside from choosing from these 2 files - everything included in the .cod(s) you install will be put on the phone.
    Thanks to MACKSnare519 for this idea!

    Choose which .cods you want based on the files they contain - the file list is at the bottom of this post. Download to your computer and unzip - files within each are listed at the bottom:

    9000 Tones:
    net_rim_bb_medialoader_sonic_networks_high

    net_rim_bb_medialoader_sonic_networks_high_2

    9700 Tones

    net_rim_bb_medialoader_ringtones_480x360_03_b.cod

    Download and install BBSAK to your computer (I suggest using 1.7 - if you're trying a newer version and having problems, go back to 1.7 like I did):
    BBSAK 1.7 Download

    Plug your phone in as if you were using Desktop Manager but instead run BBSAK. Under the tab "Modify Cods" choose "Install Cod(s)". Select the .cod you want and it will install it. Repeat if you want both of the .cods installed. Unplug your phone and do a battery pull.

    When you go to change alert tones through profile management on your phone, you'll find all of them under "All Alerts..." in the dropdown box.

    EDIT: You will have to do this process each time you install a new OS on the phone. After the OS is installed, use BBSAK to install the .cod(s), reboot the phone and then run DM6 - select restore and choose selective restore - the only option you need to restore is called "sounds" - this will correctly restore your profile settings.

    PS: Someone mentioned there were other ringtones missing - perhaps Storm-specific ringtones. The .cods I linked above were extracted from a Bold 9000 5.0.0.681 OS. If someone wants to upload the .cod(s) for the Storm I'll gladly put them in this post.

    Here's what's included in the two .cods:

    These tones, from the 9700, are exactly the same as the combination of the two 9000 files above - minus the Stewart Copeland stuff in the second 9000 file and plus a big demo file: MusicDemo_WorldTraveller.m4a

    The factory ringtones on the 9000? I don't think you can move them. If you are talking about mp3's you should have any issues.

    I want the factory ringtones from my 9000 on my 9800...at least a few of them...not a single ringtone/alert that I used on my 9000 is on my 9800 right now.

    Bluetooth seems the most promising but on my 9000 there is only a "receive using bluetooth" option in the menu...no send.

    Those are locked down....like the pre-loaded pictures - although I have seen where someone was able to get the pics off.

    It's kind of a joke that the 9800 only came with 34 ring tones and they're pretty much all new and different. Sure some are OK but I want some of my old ring tones. I'm surprised how difficult this has been so far and also that there aren't hundreds of people complaining about this as well.

    I don't think there's a single ringtone that came with the 9800 that was also on my 9000.

    Thanks - unfortunately some of them are not quite the same quality as OEM.

    There must be a way...

    Line out of the headphone jack into the computer. Record, convert and upload to the Torch. Just a thought.

    How can it be so difficult? Am I the only one who doesn't want a whole new (limited) set of ringtones and alerts? I want my lightspeed and my sonar back.

    I'm right there with ya man!!! Ringtones and alerts are big for me. I have my 9000 and plan on getting the 9800 the moment it's available in Canada, but this is a huge predicament. Seriously!!

    I'm definitely gonna look into this because it would definitely drive me crazy. The line out going into the computer sounds difficult. I'm sure I can still do it, but wouldn't some quality be lost? There has to be a way to unlock the tones and transfer over the files onto your comp, and then transfer from the comp to the 9800.

    Hhhmmm.....

    I can't believe they're not just available for download on blackberry dot com or something...the ones that are for download in the owners lounge are special extra ringtones not the standard OEM ones that came with my 9000.

    I kind of remember the internal memory being not as locked-down on 4.6...I wonder if maybe someone on a 4.* OS can copy those ringtones off the system rom...

    Ok I found an old thread where someone had extracted all the Bold ringtones as mp3s and uploaded them to rapidshare.

    This looks like the best solution for now unless someone smarter than myself can do better.

    Download to your computer - unzip - choose the ringtones (mp3 files) that you want on your phone.

    Plug your phone into your computer so you can access the storage.

    I would suggest putting them on your internal storage (rather than the media card) - copy them to:

    As a former submariner, I have to agree: I want my sonar ringtone back!! But, likewise, as a former submariner I must say that that "sonar" really was more fathometer.
