Converting mp4 to m4r on device.
Okay so a week ago I downloaded a bunch of mp3 ringtones from Zedge and Audiko using an AppStore download manager.
I then opened ifile navigated to the managers library edited the file extensions from .mp3 to .m4r then copy/pasted them into /var/stash/ringtones
When I selected them in Settings they worked!!
However I just tried adding some more and they will not play when I select them in Settings. I don't remember if I did anything differently before but I can't figure it out.
If anyone can help me figure this out I would appreciate it
P.S. I do not use iTunes or ssh I do all modifications "on device"

You really should convert them from MP3 to AAC and then change the file extension to .m4r. Why don't you sync your ringtones using iTunes?Until the next time… And if I help you out, give me a "Thanks!" Thanks!

Buy Anyring from Cydia store and it will set it set your ringtones immediately, no need to mess with the files.

I don't use iTunes because I really don't like it's interface, I use copytrans for syncing music, I also like doing things on my iPhone without tweaks or apps if possible. I would like to put m4r files directly into the ringtones folder so that they are in the native ringtone location .
If anyone knows how to convert audio files to m4r on an iPhone let me know

Figured it out. Mp3s have to be smaller than 500kb (approx) to work when you change the ext. to .m4r
