I couldn't find the appropriate module, so I copied my mp3 files into: /system/media/audio/....
That seems to be working. I hope that the system sound files do not get deleted / replaced with new ROMs.

Edit: Except now, after a reboot, they seem to have gone from the folder!
I've converted them into .ogg files, and still they have disappeared from the folders.
I note that when I include one of my own sound files as a ringtone, it get copied to a very remote .ringtone folder.
( /storage/emulated/0/Android/data/com.android.thememanager/files/MIUI/.ringtone )
Maybe it is this folder that is broken.
Can this folder be mended?
Is there a way to stop the files being deleted in the /system/media/audio/... folders?

Edit: Just trying the [Workaround]: MagiskModule

Edit2: The module copies to the same remote .ringtone folder as above. And also as above, this folder is broken.

All of my customised ringtones have gone now (including the phone). :(
1. How does it know which sound files to copy?
2. Where does it copy them from? Or is that the same as 1 above?
3. And where does it copy them to?

Which part of the logfile do you want - boot? trying to play the sound?

Why would Xiaomi mess such an important part of android up?

I have tried installing both the Magisk module and the TWRP file.
The files are in the .ringtone folder, but do not play after a reboot - they do not play with any of my players either.

which section of the logcat do you want - trying to play the media file, reboot process, or receiving a text or phone call?
there where the issues are not boot process. I am wondering that you cant play your sound files with a media player. what does it mean… the folder is broken?

I've uninstalled and re-installed the Magisk module, and also got the logcat. I've re-copied the files into the /system/media/audio/... folders, and re-assigned the sounds. After a re-boot, my sound files have again disappeared from the folders. However, my SMS sound file plays, but under a different filename and from a different location -
MediaPlayer: setDataSource() actualUri=file:///data/system/theme_magic/ringtones/sms_received_sound.mp3

This appears to be the only file in that folder - none of other allocations that I have made appear. My original filename appears as the sound allocated under the Messages Sound notifications, but neither my original filename, nor this new filename appear in the list of available sounds for selection - yet it plays!

Note: I do not play with any of the coding - I just follow instructions or solutions.

hi it could be that the folders have changed. not a problem. look for the ringtones folder and change them in the magisk modul. I cant test it, sorry.

I'll wait and hope that Xiaomi will mend this soon. I'll go with the system sounds until then ;)

But after some logcat investigations, here we go ...
The permissions of "/data/system/theme_magic" is the issue.
So I have manually deleted the folder "theme_magic".
While setup a custom ringtone the folder will be recreated with correct permissions.

Hello. I have Android 12 (xiaomi.eu 21.10.27) on POCO F3.
TWRP method dont working because TWRP on android 12 can't read "system/data".
MagiskModule method dont working because i don't have root and magisk.
Zedge method dont working because zedge app dont see internal storage.

What i can do?

@Onotoley I converted the .mp3 files with a free software to .ogg and put the new .ogg files in MIUI\.ringtone (and in ringtones, music and alarm folders too. But the MIUI\.ringtone was the last one and it started working. Though I can't say they worked because there was a copy in other folders, too).

Same problem on my Mi10T with 12.5.1 Stable ROM.

Thanks for sharing this fix, manually deleting "theme_magic" folder via TWRP Recovery solved issue.
Now i can upload my custom ringtones in to sdcard and they visible in file explorer.

For those who not familiar with TWRP Recovery but already install it like me:
In main menu choose Advanced > File Manager, navigate to /data/system/theme_magic, ensure that you're right inside theme_magic folder, then click little blue check mark button in right bottom corner, choose Delete. After that return to main menu and select Reboot > System. Don't worry, folder will recreate itself after reboot with right permissions.

P.S. Wondering that latest Stable ROM had such a bug.
Hi and have a HNY! Would you please advise (in detail if possible) how to access /data/system/ as when using the file manager (even with the activated option for seeing hidden files) no such the files are visible. Tnx in advance

try this… its an example

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
# adb shell
# su system
# rm -r /data/system/FOLDERNAME
# reboot
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
# install magisk & mix explorer
# grant root in magisk to mix explorer
# grant root access in mix explorer -> settings - more settings - allow root
# change to /data/system/FOLDERNAME and delete the files / directories
# reboot

why is the module not installed?

sorry but i am not sucha tech savvy guy. i feel awesome just by managing to root my phone lol.
so my files are decrypted. i never remember doing that? any help in making the names properly appear again?
the magisk module probably wasnt installed because i added lots of ringtones. around 300. can i isntall magisk module and then manually adding in a root folder the ringtones needed? (and which would that folder be?
thanks so much

is there a separate topic? i cant find itthrough search. i can see it in the first post though.
problem is i have many ringtones and when i add them to the zip, it cant be installed. is there a size limit? can i use the module and add the ringtones later? but in which path should i add them? i have a rooted phone, thank you for the help

After analyzing the logcat I have found the root cause.
The permissions of "/data/system/theme_magic/ringtones" is the issue.
So I have manually deleted the folder. While setup a custom ringtone the folder will be recreated with correct permissions.
Everything is working like a chame. I will create a TWRP Script.
Hi,
I have notification sound problem.
Does this solution works in same way with notification folder?
I mean to connect phone via usb to pc and just delete notification folder, hope I will not mess something :)
What would be Your advice? Thanks
