Default Full File Access to Copy Internal Files

Please Login to Remove!

Is there a way to access the internal file system of the phone so I can copy the internal ring tones the phone offers? My father has a Nokia and likes some of the tones I have.

The My Computer method doesn't show everything, so is there a way to "hack" in via ssh or some other method?

Or is the best method to use a male/male 3,5 mm audio cable from the headphone jack on the phone into a microphone jack on a PC and use the record what the sound card hears option?

Please advise.

Thanks

Try bb filescout. I know you can access them and I think it will let you copy also then you can put them somewhere you can get to them at. Maybe even blutooth them I think.

The file in the Media Player of the phone allows me to get properties to locate the file, and it was found here: /system/samples/ringtones/Ringer_ClassicPhone.m4a.rem

I found it there without the .rem attached to it, I was able to send it via email, but I got an error message on the BlackBerry



The file I received in my mail client was also zero bytes in size.

I will try Bluetooth next.

The program itself seems neato, didn't think of looking for programs on the BB itself!

I tried using the 'put' method as my laptop is being silly and won't synchronise right now, but put gave me this error: The file 'Ringer_ClassicPhone.m4a' is a media encrypted file. The copy or put functionality might not work!

I suppose that is why there were bangs with the red flag next to the file. The next question is, how do I ignore the flag or force it to change?

.rem files are all encrypted.

I figured they are encrypted. The million dollar question is, how does one decrypt it? It is just an audio file, which just plays using the media player. How can I decrypt it, and send myself that file? The key to decrypt it must exist some place, no?

The BlackBerry is a notoriously secure device...

I suppose there is one way to do so, the sound card recording method. . .

I don't know why they would encrypt audio files though.

Does blackberry still have their internal files encrypted even if you turn encryption mode?

Maybe to prevent copying it elsewhere.

Yes I get that, but seriously, 2 second ring tones?
Oh well, I will use the sound card routine that should work. I just need to find my male/male 3,5 mm audio cable and I should be good to go. It is the weakness since I will copy the audio feed directly as it is decrypted. I doubt there is Macrovision crap on it that would prevent it like VHS/DVDs have
