Step 1: Gather necessary equipment...

You will need the following:

1 Earpiece adapter for vx8500 (comes with the phone)
2 USB cable to mutilate
3 MicroSD card *optional*
4 Bitpim
5 Drivers (not necessary for linux, as for windows, you're on yor own.
i would try the drivers from my other phone tutorial first, they should work)
why not try this <a href="http://www.ringtone-make.com/" rel="nofollow">ringtone maker</a> <br /> I think you can get some help !<br />
I didn't get an adapter with mine... D:<
could this be used for the enV i have an orange one and i know the board in it is diffrent than the silver and green PM me if you know anything nice instructable btw
if it's from LG, then probably. as long as you have the cables and driver. check bitpim.org's list of supported phones (you may need your model number and firmware/os version.)
Bit Pim Rocks. Thats what i use at least. I just have the cable from the music essentials kit. Jon
Cool! Looks like some work to do, but I don't have a Chocolate anyways.
