    Default Guide: Hide ringtones from the Music Player S60

    Do this hack at your own risk, You may damage your phone !!!

    Tired of having your ringtones listed and played together with your music? Here's how you can hide the tones from the Music Player. This is applicable for Symbian phones only (N82, N95, etc.).

    WARNING: The advise below involves changing folder attributes and using tools that might easily harm the file system of your phone! If unsure that you can handle the steps, better leave the ringtones be.
    Note: Following the advise below will also hide the folder/files from the build-in File Manager.

    To prevent a file or folder with ringtones from being listed in the MP3 player:
    1. Get yourself a file manager that allows you to change file/folder attributes. Y-Browser will do the job - http://www.drjukka.com
    2. Create a separate folder and place in it all the ringtones and melodies you want to hide from the player. I recommend using the memory card - this will help you repair the file system in case something goes wrong.
    3. Open the file manager from Step 1 (not the build-in File Manager) and navigate to the folder from Step 2.
    4. Change the attributes of the folder to 'System'. For Y-Browser highlight the folder and choose Options -> Attributes then set 'System' to 'Yes' and press Save.
    5. Exit the file manager and refresh the library of the Music Player. Now the folder/files are not shown in the Music Player/File Manager but are still listed on music file selection dialogs (like 'Ringing tone' option in Contacts).

    You can also hide single files by setting their attributes to 'System'. I do not recommend this, though.
    Please, have in mind that reverting the folder to non-system might not be possible (N82 + Y-Browser 0.88, for example). If this happens you need to move the files to another folder and then delete and recreate the folder. If you have set up the folder/files on the memory card, use a card reader or 'Mass storage' mode to connect to the computer and reset the attributes from there.

    Great tip! I wish i knew this a year earlier. The most annoying of listening to music on my mobile phone where the ringtones between the numbers.
    That belongs to the past now..

    u can hide any folder in your phone with this trick..
    also one more way of hiding files /folders is to place them in "PAIbTN" folder ( u will find this folder in images folder )

    I just tried on a 5800 running v10.0.010 firmware, used Xplore to set the attribute as "system" and it does hide the files completely. Meaning I can't select them as ringtones anymore in the profiel editors
