iPhone Interface Tool so far...
If you haven't been following along with the iPhone Dev wiki's IRC channel, here's the latest:
We have successfully written a tool named iPhoneInterface allowing for some basic manipulation of things on the phone, and are releasing it tonight. We are including source code so you can understand the techniques we have used so far. We will be expanding the functionality of this tool significantly tomorrow. The best news is that we have prototype code that allows the ability to:
* Run any desired application already residing on the phone.
* Control what processes run on the phone (currently implementation is very hackish)
* Move files around on the phone
* Enable viewing of verbose information during the restore process
* Activate the phone without iTunes and without a token
Note: Not all of the features listed above are necessarily included in tonight’s initial release.
We are continuing significant work on this tool and will probably have similarly worthwhile updates tomorrow.
I should note that right now, if you aren’t working on hacking the iPhone yourself, this release is primarily interesting for academic reasons. Still, this opens iPhone hacking to an even larger group, which will hopefully mean that the end-user useful features will be coming even sooner. Right now though, we are still in the early days so don’t expect too much from these early releases.

Windows only for right now.
iPhoneInterface is a tool for Windows and Mac that permits you to manipulate the iPhone’s state, launch services and interact with the chroot’d filesystem. Version 1.0 was released on 5 July 2007.

if you are trying to create ringtones, you dont need to use this tool at all. its pretty old. Just follow the steps and you should be fine with creating ringtones,
1. connect your iphone to your computer, charge it
2. open itunes, select the song you wish to creat ringtone from
3. right click on the song, goto Getinfo, navigate to options, and set the play time (from and to), thats the part of music that will be your ringtone (select only 30 seconds)
4. click ok and come back to itunes, select the song, right click and select create AAC version
5. once thats created, right click on that 30 seconds song, click Getinfo, you would see the folder where this AAC version file is stored (.m4a)
6. goto that folder and change the extension to m4r (remove the last letter 'a' and replace it with 'r')
7. now goto itunes, delete the 30 seconds song (AAC version)
8. goto the folder where your .m4r file exists, double click on it, it should open up itunes and will be shown against the ringtone option
9. sync your iphone
10. select your custom ringtone from settings and you should be all set
