I have been using Samsung Galaxy s4 stock firmware up until now. Yesterday I switched to AOKP 4.4.4 (18/10/2014 build) and I've noticed that none of my old ringtones work (12 unrelated ringtones). I tried converting some of them to ogg, mp3 and wav formats with audacity. Whatever i do, they do not appear in ringtone list when moved to system/media/audio/ringtones. They cannot be selected with ES explorer - I get "Wrong file type, please select again" message. If I select them with root explorer the ringtone is set to "None".
Some mp3 files in my music library work, but not the ringtones.
I assume it has something to do with ringtone format, however, I have got no idea where to start looking.
Is there any setting I could change or an app I could change / install to add the compatibility? Is there any particular app responsible for sound playback in android?
EDIT: I am running AOKP on Samsung Galaxy S4.
EDIT2: I recently installed latest official firmware. During instalation I tried resetting to phone default firmware and ringtones worked. Now that I am on new official firmware, old ringtones do not work again. Also, On the new FW I used official ringtone selection tool (that creates a ringtone file). The ringtone created works in ringtone selector list, but cannot be added to list if removed from the list or if moved.
This leads me to believe problem is with some update all newer firmwares (including AOKP) have.
No real answer to this question, I am forced to use a 3rd party app to use my old ringtones.
