    Default new to android and DNA - need help

    Trying to copy a ringtone mp3 into /system/media/audio/notifications, using Astro File Manager. Fails to write file. All of the pre-loaded ringtones are stored under system.

    Do I need to root this phone to copy ringtones and like files?

    Also, I see a directory structure under sdcard, which has directories for ringtones, notifications... I can copy a file there, but cant see the mp3 in the Sounds menu. What is the purpose of this directory structure if the phone doesnt see the mp3 I added.

    Sorry, really confused on how to simply copy a file so that I can add a ringtone.
    thanks

    I see the ADD + from the Ringtones menu, but I dont see anything to add once I click on it. There is no way to browse to select anything else. I dont see the ADD + in the Notifications menu.
