LG Incite - How to Change the Ringtone File Size Limit

[ Edited ]

This is a short tutorial on how to increase the size limit on ringtones for your Incite (and HTC Fuze). This will involve making a simple change to your phone's registry. Things that you will need to begin: a PC, ActiveSync (XP) / WMDC (Vista), and CERegEditor a free program that can be found here...

   http://www.freewarepocketpc.net/ppc-download-ceregeditor-v0-0-3-0.html

 

Download and install CERegEditor and then connect your Incite with the USB cable. The ActiveSync window should pop up and your phone's LED light should be a constant red. Next, Open CERegEditor and follow the pictures below. Note: BE VERY CAREFUL NOT TO TOUCH OR CHANGE ANYTHING EXCEPT WHAT'S LISTED OR ELSE YOU COULD HAVE A $200 PAPERWEIGHT.

 

I posted a tutorial on making ringtones with the free music editor Audacity here...

Footnote: it doesn't have to be 600KB...it can be anything you want, but keep in mind that the bigger the ringtone, the more processor bandwith is require to process it and hence you could give yourself other problems. I've verified the above number and it easily gives you a 96kbps mp3 for 30 seconds. It could probably handle 128k too.

 

Goodluck and enjoy!

Re: LG Incite - How to Change the Ringtone File Size Limit

I followed these steps word for word and I am still getting Access Denied when I try to change the FileSizeLimit.  I perform the Unlock Registry step multiple times and even get the message that I should be able to edit the registry.  Can you think of anything else I can try?

Got it. I had to accept the editing at the phone.
