Thats because v1.1.1 and 1.1.2 use the new controlled method of only allowing iTunes based RingTones.
You can get around this by applying the MeCCA patch for 1.1.1, its just a MeCCA file that you overwrite and it makes the Ringtones folder back to normal again, search for that file in the downloads and apply it, and you will be back to your original Ringtone setup.

Have you installed SSH on your iPhone? If so have you turned it on (if you turned it off via Services or iToggle) ?
If not you need to install OpenSSH from Installer or possibly through iDemocracy. Everything is done through SSH. Only apps like iBrickr, iPhonelist, iPhonebrowser actually connect through a serial link, not through wifi. Thats why I mentioned get the MeCCA file in the right place, then just use the normal apps to get the files in the Ringtones folder if thats what you are familiar with.

i have now installed open SSH and then used Idemocracy to upload the file
I have stuck a few ring tones on and then viewed them in the sounds list, They apear there, but when i set them as my ring tone they do not play.

Just use iTunes to convert your mp3 to aac (right click - convert to aac), then rename to .m4r
Double click and they will be added to your ringtone list in iTunes, then sync.
