    How to Add Custom Ringtones to your system folder ... won't default back on reboot

    I got tired of my ringtones always defaulting back to stock after I would reboot.
    I would use stuff like Ringdroid, but they were never persistent after reboots.
    Salas got me curious about this, so if there's a better way, I'm all ears, but this method worked for me.

    Convert your MP3 to OGG using
    Format Factory - Free media file format converter

    (I used 32k bitrate)
    with WINAMP, open the OGG and view file properties, under ADVANCED you can add a field called ANDROID_LOOP and set the value to TRUE or you can just make the track long enough to not need looping, your choice.

    then use FILESLICK

    (free gesture based file manager) to change permissions on the SYSTEM directory by going under PLACES, pick MOUNT POINTS, scroll down to SYSTEM folder and check WRITE ENABLED

    Browse to the Ringtone location under System/media/audio/ringtones (added it to PLACES for easy access), then select your .OGG from where ever you have it stored on your SD Card and COPY it to the ringtones folder.

    After you copy your ringtone .ogg, set the file permissions on the .ogg to the following: (it'll make sense if you use FILESLICK)
    [x] [x] [ ] User
    [x] [ ] [ ] Group
    [x] [ ] [ ] System

    Reboot and the new ringtones will appear.

    OR for TASKER fans:
    You can just set a task to set your ringtone to whatever every morning...
