    Why not use iRinger?

    It's free and simple.

    1. Import your music or video clip.
    2 Visually choose start and end points.
    3. Export directly to your iTunes ringtone folder.

    Done!

    Indeed its free and simple, but I just dont know why I cant sync more than one ringtone to my iPhone, I have 2 ringtones under the ringtone tab under my library, but if I try getting the 2nd one into the iPhone either it just wont do it, or it will create a 2nd copy of the one I already had in there. Can anyone help me?

    i was having this same issue but then i found a better way of doing it.

    first you need to make the .m4r file (guide can be found in the begining of this thread)

    second you need to make sure you have openssh installed on your iphone and either the bsd subsystem or cydia package manager (imho cydia is better)

    third you will need an sftp client winscp works but i use filezilla

    connect to your iphone using sftp://root:alpine@*iphone's wifi ipaddress*

    browse to \private\var\Ringtones on the iphones file system and upload all the ringtones you want. i currently have 5 on there

    they will showup in general > sounds > ringtones
