    After much struggling, the following process worked for me:

    1. Place .mp3 file in: sdcard\MIUI\ringtone
    2. Settings > Sound (under Personal tab) > Ringtone > Others > Music > select file > OK
    3. Settings > Themes (under Personal tab) > Customize > Ringtone > Others > Music > select file > OK

    This is what got my custom ringtone recognized. What a pain! But not as bad as the pain of using something other than MIUI.

    Tried it some time ago, didn't like it much. Thanks for the suggestion, though.

    what worked for me was doing this ^^ minus the first step.

    Some people think the CPU governor has an affect. I'm about to experiment. I know that with both Smartassv2 and boostedassv2, my selected ringtones and notifications don't play on about every 4th event.


    Which cpu governor are you using?

    I changed governors last night to InteractiveX, and so far every notification and ringtone has played correctly. This is the first time since flashing MIUI that they haven't failed.

    This did not fix my problem. My ringtones still fail.

    I'm having a related (??) issue with custom ringtones: In my case, I select a custom ringtone (using only steps #2 and #3 above). When I receive a call, a custom ringtone is played -- but it's not the one I selected. Instead, it's playing a different custom ringtone in the same folder as the custom one I actually selected.

    How/why it's selecting some completely random ringtone is beyond me. Anyone else seen this?

    MIUI 2012.05.12 (with InteractiveX governor, should it matter).
