Blackjack II Ringtones above 300kb - here's the hack
OK - I have been looking for this for a long time so here it is. I Just got this working and it works perfectly.  You can now play standard MP3 files on your Blackjack II without conversion, regarless of size! 
 
  1. You need a regedit program so download and install one.  I got one here.
  2. Go into HKEY_Current User → ControlPanel → Sounds
  3. Then hit the "Values" button to display the values
  4. Delete the key of FileSizeLimit
Presto!  Now you can use your MP3s as ringtones without modification.

Not familiar with Total Commander.  If you use the Mobil Registry 1.1 suggested...when you plug in the phone, and open the program...it will automatically come up on your computer screen with the registry...proceed from there.

Connect your phone to your computer and doubleclick on the .exe file in the folder where you put MRE 1.1 and it should open up a screen with the registry...follow the path given until you end up at the filesize =300000 and change it.

Download Mobil Registry 1.1 to a folder on your computer.
 
Install the sync software on your computer from the cd that comes with the phone.  See the instructions if you have any questions. (not required on Vista systems)
 
Connect the phone to your computer.
 
Be sure that the sync software shows your phone to be connected.
 
Go to the folder where you downloaded the MRE software and double click on the MRE.EXE file in the folder.
 
On your computer screen, you should see a window showing the phone registery.
 
  1. Go into HKEY_Current User → ControlPanel → Sounds
  2. Then hit the "Values" button to display the values

Click on the + beside HKEY_Current User

Then click on the + beside ControlPanel, then the + beside Sounds

When you see the Values button, click on it.

When you see the box on the right hand side with filesize with a value of 300000 in it...change that value to something much larger.  I think 10,000,000 will cover just about any file you put in the phone for a ringtone.  Then leave the program.

Note that I think Captain America was deleting the filesize altogether...this is not the same as changing the value from 300000 to zero.....I know it has worked the way I delineated for many including myself.

 

Also note that all work is done on your computer screen....the phone is a passive player in this change.

Then you have to transfer the ringtones you desire to the My Sounds folder on your phone.  I am assuming you can also put it on a storage card, but, I am waiting on one that I ordered so I can not be positive.

Thanks!!!  That's awesome.  What else can I unlock or change that might benefit me on the phone?  Can I unlock the GPS to work with Google Maps and Microsoft Live this way?

Google works fine for me with no hacks or unlocking....just download it and go.  It may not work indoors due to lack of signal altho it often does if you are by a window.  May take two or three minutes before it reports the satellites found.

I guess it depends what you are trying to do and if a Registry change is required.  Reading some of the other boards may give you a better idea.  I am pretty new to smartphones/pdas Smiley Happy

I keep getting a "The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000135)." error message when trying to run moblie reg editor v1.1 program.  Do I need to install anything else besides the MS .NET Framework?   Tried to use the PHM editor but, like other people who posted above, I could not get it work either.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

***Never mind...I was doing this for my brother and he said that he had installed the .NET framework...but he didn't.  Downloaded and installed the .NET framework and all is well.

Is it possible though to continue to try and set up the ring tones from your Storage Card, or will I only have the option of storing the file on my actual phone/device. I'd prefer to host the files on my storage card considering I plan to have a number of them available to me as various ringtones for different individuals. However, if it's on the device, this is going to severely limit me. Is this my only choice at this time?

I setup  Facade and Photo Contacts PRO - than after  increasing file size i receive opportunity to add special sounds(over 300) and pics from my card. For you just for managing contacts i guess would be  enough to setup only Photo Contacts...
I hope this would help you..

I have looked through all that I can. I did the following: currentuser -> control panel -> sounds, but I cannot find this "value" key or option. I tried the knowncallerring0 like somebody suggested, but that did not work for me. I am using a blackjack II, just got it a couple of days ago. If someone could give me some insight it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

nvm found a fix.....go into the registry just like it says above in the other posts and instead of  clicking on "sounds" and going to the "knowncaller0" just click on sounds and on the right there will be a "file size limit Dword" with a number limit of somehere in the 34000 or somtin range.  Just click on "filesize" and change it to 6144000 thatll give you about 6 mbs to work with and then just go under sounds in your phone and hit set as ringtone and you should be good to go.....Thanks to whoeve started this thread and all who contributed

I downloaded the reigestry thingy...  I opened it up...  Error..  It says it can't open...

Is there a 2nd way to fix it?  I have a blackjack 1, and then I upgraded to WM6 and then I get this 300kb error...  stupid microsoft, why did you change it?

So is there another way around it?
