    Regarding Android Jelly Bean version and my Verizon S4 (sch-i545)...
    I know that the native folder location for ringtones, alerts, and notifications is at /system/media/audio

    But, where can I create a folder on the sdcard (or ext_sdcard) to add my own ringtones?
    I've created and moved mp3's into the following folder structures, rebooted and still don't see them when I try to add new ringtones:
    \sdcard\media\audio\ringtones
    \sdcard\media\ringtones
    \sdcard\ringtones

    None of the 3 above folder structures work. Anyone have an idea or do I have to move mp3 files into the /system location?

    you cant change the default. the bottom one would be simple to find. do those you have created not show up in the list along with default and go to my files? have you rebooted phone?

    I mentioned in the original post that I created each folder, copied ringtones in the folder, rebooted and checked. For each folder structure, each reboot, the particular ringtones (mp3's) are not showing up.
    I also realize I can't change the default.
    I'm just looking for a way to place new ringtones in a folder that the S4 "see's" so I can use them.

    I figured it out.
    I need to place the folders on the root of my extSDcard, reboot and it works.
    In the past versions of Android I did this at the root of the sdcard under a \media\audio folder, but I guess Jelly bean is different.

    /mnt/extSdCard/Ringtones
    /mnt/extSdCard/Alarms
    /mnt/extSdCard/Notifications

    Then reboot and they will show up

    Thanks DarkSorrow, that works.
