    Re: Alltel samsung muse (sch-u706) Difficulty getting ringtones

    Hi all

    There is a log of useful info about how to use QPST in this thread - but no ideas on how to obtain the Samsung CDMA USB driver?

    I have got QPST but I am presuming it won't work without the driver.

    Re: Alltel samsung muse (sch-u706) Difficulty getting ringtones

    I read a question elsewhere here inquiring about whether PC Studio 3 was no longer free.

    I did find it on the Samsung site with a link (I think from this thread) for a different model (SGH-A717?). Samsung conspicuously only has a manual in the download area for the SCH-U706...Samsung-Alltel agreement at work here?

    I have got QPST but I am presuming it won't work without the driver.
    I couldn't find the USB CDMA driver anywhere so got a kit off eBay for about $12 which included the USB cable and driver disk.

    The driver appears to be a generic one which works with other models, it also worked with my wife's Samsung My Shot. Although the supplied phone apps on this CD only work with the muse, QPST did work with both phones using the USB driver. The procedure for ringtones is the same on the My Shot as the Muse, although curiously on her phone the last property on the lines in the MsInfo.db file is number 6, not 0 or 5, and even with it set to 6, the MP3 can be set as a ringtone.

    Came across this discussion thread when I did a Google search. I have two Samsung SCH-R430's, aka MyShot. The key to this process is QPST. Thank you QualComm and thank you to the individual(s) who make the QPST cell phone interface application (currently using Version 2.7 Build 323) available for download. CDMA software tools will provide visibility to the embedded file system as well.

    You will also need a USB or other serial data cable, or a Bluetooth adapter for your PC.

    I find with my phones that the QPST configuration functionality is required only once; i.e., when you initially connect the phones to the PC and add the port (COM5 on my PC, phone = USB-connected, cable obtained for $3.68 from eBay). After that, you need only the EFS (Embedded File System, one presumes) Explorer.

    As for modifying ('modding') the ringtone database entries, it's not necessary. The phones' own software and system level application do this automatically upon phone reboot/restart. Specifically, there is no need to modify the "|0|0" values in the MsInfo database to "|0|5", "0|6", "0|7" or any other value. My recommendation -- on the Samsung SCH-R430 at least -- is to leave the MsInfo.db file alone.

    It's also not necessary to execute the 'new file' procedure to add the ringtones, and for the MyShot anyway, I reiterate: Leave the MsInfo.db file alone. Editing the file creates unnecessary risk with zero upside. The current QPST build is quite Windows-compatible, so simply drag and drop your MP3 file into the /brew/mod/18067 directory from its location on your PC. Just be careful. I have not tested the extent to which QualComm has (or has not) 'locked down' the directory/folder delete capabilities to idiot-proof their interface. I have deleted ringtones from the /brew/mod/18067 directory with no ill effects. I have also used the QPST EFS Explorer interface to copy photos from my /brew/mod/10888 folder to my PC and then deleted them from the phone as well. Again, no adverse events.

    I also use Audacity with the LAME library to edit my MP3 files.

    Hope this helps.
