    I only use maybe 3 of them total for notifications or actual ringtones.
    I use custom ringtones for everything else which are stored on memory card. I'm just wondering if it is safe to delete the stock ringtones to save some space since a majority of them take up more then 150KB some even 400KB.

    Found the folders under

    system -> media -> audio ->

    alarms
    notifications
    ringtones
    ui

    Some are MP3 format and a majority are OGG

    Thanks!

    They are in the system directory so deleting them will neither save nor add space to the data directory which is what you're looking for.

    Oh I see, thanks.

    So deleting them will only decrease the lame choices?

    Since they are all in the system folder would doing so be safe or should I just let them be and continue scrolling through blah and blah blah sound effects?


    Can I replace the PowerOn.mp3 with a sound of choice under ...

    system -> sounds -> poweron ?

    I'm thinking it shouldn't be a problem if I create my own sound and rename it PowerOn.mp3 and just replace stock boot up sound.

    lol, correct. That's a funny way of saying it but yes, it would only reduce the lame choices.

    We'll that's up to you. I don't see the harm in deleting them but keep in mind that /system is r/o so you need to be rooted to deleting anything from that directory.

    Yeah absolutely. You just need to make sure the name is the EXACT same of the file you are placing in there. Again though, system is r/o so you need to be rooted.
