Hello, i hope i have an easy to answer question.

I am searching around now for quite some time to find where the recorded greeting audio file is saved from the integrated answering machine of the Z2.

I am rooted so it is no problem when it is saved somewhere in the normally inaccessible area. I just wan't to replace the recoded audio with an audio file that is not recorded over the phones microphone.

Has anyone already found that place?


Thanks in advance

Hello,

thanks for the reply. I just found the right place.
The files are saved under "/data/data/com.android.phone/files/am/greeting/"

The files are saved as Adaptive Multi-Rate (*.amr)

i did it the following way:
1) recorded an audio with approximately the same duration as my audio file i want to use.
2) downloaded the audio file to my pc
3) opened the audio file i want to use on my phone in audacity and made it the exact same length as my recorded audio.
4) saved my modded audio file as amr and saved it on the phone. (placed in the same directory and using the same name as the previously recorded audio)

I am not sure if the stuff with the same length is really needed, but the first time i tried it showed 0 seconds on the phone and didn't looked like it works. (but it might just be that i had the sound muted or something. )
