    Default Swap Ringtone.plist app - based on SwapTunes
    First off, all credit goes to Philippe aka shaialud, as it's his SwapTunes code which I simply reworked for this simple app.

    SwapTones is a very simple native application which will first backup, and then restore your Ringtones.plist from then on out whenever its launched. So, lets say you sync with iTunes and notice your ringtone is now set to Marimba and your custom ringtones are gone. Simply launch SwapTones to restore your plist file and restore the custom ringtones in your selection menu again.

    This application is not on Installer, and was made by me with the help of SwapTunes and the inspiration of Tinman who originally proposed the idea. Sorry Mike, I just got anxious waiting for yours, lol!

    You can download this application below in the attachments, heres a sample of the graphics as well as the Readme File:



    From the Readme
    SwapTones version 1

    *What does it do?*

    SwapTones restores your Ringtones.plist file after Syncing with iTunes with 1 simple Click!


    *How to Install*

    SSH to your iPhone and browse to the Applications folder.
    Copy the SwapTunes.app folder to the Applications folder on your iPhone.
    Open the SwapTunes.app folder and give SwapTunes.sh 0755 permissions


    *IMPORTANT BEFORE SYNCING*

    You will first need to run SwapTones once to create a backup of your currently working
    Rintones.plist. This backup will be used from then on to restore your Ringtones.plist
    whenver your launch SwapTones.


    *How to Clear the Ringtones.plist for a new one*

    SSH to your iPhone and browse to:
    /var/root/Media/iTunes_Control/iTunes
    and delete the folder Ring_temp on your iPhone

    *How to Uninstall*

    SSH to your iPhone and browse to the Applications folder
    Delete SwapTones.app
    Browse to:
    /var/root/Media/iTunes_Control/iTunes
    and delete the folder Ring_temp on your iPhone

    Why would I "loose" my ringtones? Are you saying people should install this before upgrading to 1.1.1?

    iToner works fine for me (on 1.1.1) and it's free for the first 30 days.

    Sorry I just don't see how this app will help me.

    For us windows sers we have to create a plist with our rngtones in t. Everytime we sync to itunes, it overwrites our plist with a clean one. This program just puts your backup back.

    Great work! Thanks!!
