Blackjack II Ringtones above 300kb - here's the hack

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.

Re: Blackjack II Ringtones above 300kb - here's the hack

omg DUH lol...Ok that makes so much sense now, it works great!!

Now I have ONE more question I swear!!!
 It tells me I have to move the MP3 to the phone's memory in order to use the file as a ringtone...but using so many large files for different people is making my phone memory not able to keep up...is there a way to use the songs on my storage card without moving them to the  phones memory? Or any other option that would leave me with at least 15 songs or more...

Smiley Very Happy

Hey, I found the answer a few pages before this one. Someone wrote that if you use mobile editor, go to HKEY current user thing, hit that plus sing to make it drop down, go to SOUNDS, but instead of clicking that plus sign, JUST click the word SOUNDS. The third line says FILESIZELIMIT, double click that, a small box pops up with a value, put in something like 6144000 thats about 6mb I think the other person on here said, and click ok...and thats it, should work/

I couldn't connect to anything and the cingular rep had me hard reset my phone.  I went into the registry and go to current_users/control pannel/sounds and click on values and there is nothing listed in there at all.  I still get the error message that my ringtone can't be larger than 30kb. I once tried adding the value back and setting the file size larger but that didn't work for me either.  This shouldn't be difficult.  :-(  Thanks in advance,  Damion

Okay maybe I'm just slightly "special" or something but... When you say go into  HKEY and so on... What are you talking about? Where am I suppose to go and how do I get there?  From my computer or phone? I've downloaded the program and seriously need some help. I'm starting to get hella frustrated here. Please and thank you.

Re: Blackjack II Ringtones above 300kb - here's the hack

if you downloaded Mobile registery editor, open it
but first make sure your phone is connected to the computer and ActivSync is running
then open MRE
and on the side under the phone name it should say HKEY current user click it
then go to control...click the + sign the sound +
then you should see in the right side a list and in there it should have "filesizelimit"
double click to open it and add a 0 to the already existing number and it should work fine
its super easy
