So after reset and update my Jolla,i can't set ringtone from my music. it just say that copy music to device. mediaplayer finds all anyways, maybe i just have to place that file to original ringtone folder, so maybe it finds it then. or do i just need to do reset again!!

The solution can be found in this question (buried in the comments): To be shown in the ringtone selection, the music files need to have MP3 tags (artist, album, song name). If these fields are empty, they won't show. So you must add these tags to the music files on your computer (with iTunes or any other program that can edit MP3 tags). No need to reset :)
