Weird but usefull things
I want to share an involuntary trick I discover some weeks ago with Slim.
First of all, I used to remove all sound effect and replace them with mine acting inside system\media\sound\...
I have a script for this that copy all my sound file inside ringtone UI and notification folders.
Due to the fact that I wanted analize my zip again, I extracted the content inside my SD CARD (the older external SD card in GB, the 6Gbyte area to understand it) so recreating the exact structure of system\media\sound....
Then I go to choise my happy song for default ringotones and, surprise, I saw it reported twice in the list.
Happy Idea, I did remove all the ringtones in the original folders (the internal area, or internal SD) and stay with only ringotones present in the new location.
It's works, sound is correctly reproduced!!
What does it means?
First of all, upgrading ROM doesn't necessary means that we lost this kind of configuration if you decide to leave all your sound file in the SD CARD since the format operation before and system folder recreation after doesn't touch this (you only have to delete the newers files) but....
... I think the major advantage of this is to save space on the internal SD CARD so, perheaps, reducing the risk of NO MORE SPACE (aka Low space notification).
I didn't understand why this happen but it is.
I think, other experiments like this can be tested to "move" and preserve something.
Happy to hear a real developer like I'm surely not.
