one question please: which file manager do you use, which has root permissions?
I’ve tried 4 or 5, but I can not move a .ogg file to the / system / media / notifications folder.
Oh I forgot: I upgraded to FP Opne 18.02.0
Thank you all!
I use Amaze.
Do you get an error message?
Hello, thank you very much for your reply!
I also tried with Amaze.
No error message: it appeared to me “operation completed successfully”, but in reality it had not done anything …
I don’t have any .ogg files at hand right now, so I just copied one from there to another lokation, renamed it to “0.ogg” and moved it back. That worked without problems and now I can use “0” as the notification sound in Settings.
If the same works for you too, then it’s probably an issue with the file you want to copy there.
/system normally is mounted read only. You need not only root, you have to be able to (temporally) remount /system read/write. The file manager might be able to do that
So you advise me to do it from TWRP?
@paulakreuzer do not think depends on the file, because if I open it when it is in the sd it plays quietly.
I remember amaze once asking me for some special permission, but I believe it was to modify the external SD card, not (explicitly) the /system partition (too).
I should add I’m on Lineage OS. Maybe there is a difference between Android 6 and 7?
As far as i remember,/system is r/o since kitkat (at least that’s when i started with Androis I’m also on lineage. Maybe amaze does the remount for you, i don’t use amaze
$ grep system /proc/mounts
/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/system /system ext4 ro,seclabel,relatime,data=ordered 0 0
shows ro, so read only
I´m using classical TotalCommander for any file actions on my stock FP2 Lollipop. With it I can also write to the internal memory in a limited way e.g. also into the “notification” folder. It shows “RWX” properties for the main folder.
It generally uses Java functions and offers full Root functions optionally on a rooted device.
I guess then there’s more involved:
FP2:/system/media/audio/notifications # touch x
touch: ‘x’: Read-only file system
You need to enable root for Amaze, in fact. Can be done here:
Settings (in the lateral navigation drawer) →
Advanced (bottom) →
Ajustes, en el menú lateral de Amaze →
Advanced (sic), abajo del todo →
Yes of course, that’s what I did too
However it seems that I have solved with TotalCommander.
Thanks to everyone for the tips !
