    Thanks for the easy guide, but I've tried this and i can't seem to get it to work...
    Using iMac running 10.5.1, iTunes, 7.6, with a 1.1.2 iPhone and hacked to 1.1.3 using the new ZiPhone method.

    The tunes appear in the Ringtones folder in itunes, but don't appear on the phone after a sync and restart, any ideas?

    Don,

    You must have BSD Subsystem and openSSH installed on your iPhone(you find the apps in the installer).

    than, all you need is to download the following program:
    http://rapidshare.com/files/92548579/winscp406setup.exe

    Unpack it on your PC and run it.
    Check your iPhones IP and enter it in the field "host name"
    User: root
    PW:alpine

    Hope this helps.

    good program to have is bossprefs since it'll show you your current IP when you turn on OpenSSH, but you can always go to settings > wi-fi > click on the arrow next to the network you're connected to

    I've tried this and for whatever reason it refuses to work for me. I import the song into itunes, convert to AAC, put it in a folder so I can rename it...which all it does is make the file x.m4r, get on win scp and put it in the ringtones folder but it never shows up on my phone. Can you help me?

    Edit

    Uhm nvm I got it to work, I was putting the file in the wrong ringtones folder, thanks for the guide.

    I'm on an iMac, 10.4.11, iPhone 1.1.3 jailbroken with the Dev Team's first official release, iTunes 7.6.1

    When using ANY method of putting on ringtones I've found that works for 1.1.3 EXCEPT Garageband, I can get the ringtone to show up in iTunes. iTunes will play the ringtone when I double click it, hit play, whatever. After a sync, the tone appears on my iPhone, but will not play. Another family member happens to have iLife '08, so I used his GarageBand to create a ringtone from the SAME file, uploaded it to his iTunes, took the actual .m4r file to my iTunes, and then it worked fine. That's great, but I won't always have access to his computer.

    Any ideas on how to get my tones to play? I have manual manage disabled, iTunes music folder organized, have tried deleting all spaces and even a method I found that involves renaming the .m4r file back to .m4a once it's in the Ringtones folder. Any help would be greatly appreciated
