Thread: Best easiest free way for ringtones on iphone (ssh method)

    Default Best easiest free way for ringtones on iphone (ssh method)
    I just tried this on my 1.1.3 and it works PERFECTLY.

    1) Pick a song you want
    2) Open your favorite sound editing software (Audacity for Mac or similar PC tool)
    3) Cut file to what you want the ringtone to be
    4) Export file as .mp3
    5) Open iTunes
    6) Drag your cut file into iTunes
    7) Select file and convert to AAC
    8) OPTIONAL (to make things easier) Find the new AAC file and bring it to desktop
    ****9) Mac: select file and command i (get info), where it says extension change to .m4r
    Pc: right click and get info (do same thing)
    10) Open up Fugu for Mac or similar tool for PC and SSH into your phone
    11) Go to the Main directory and navigate to /Library/Ringtones
    12) Drag and drop your new .m4r file with all the other Stock ringtones.
    13) iPhone -> Settings -> Sounds -> Ringtones -> YOUR NEW RINGTONE!

    This has to be by far the simplest way to get your custom ringtone on your iPhone. If these steps do not work, your doing something wrong.

    *** It is VERY important you change the file extension in here. You will see it as yoursong.m4r.m4a . DELETE .m4a at the end. You cannot just change the filename on the desktop like you normally do with other files.

    Or, if you use a WinPC.....install "IRinger" (google it, its free)

    Will let you take any mp3, cut what you want out for your ringtone and AUTOMATICALLY puts it into your "ringtones" section in Itunes! Just sync the iphone and you got it.

    Instead of using of Audacity which is brilliant actually, I have stumbled upon a great website called and basically all you do is load the song you want to make as a ringtone, cut out less than 40 seconds of your choosen bit of the ringtone and download it onto your desktop or something. The instructions are there and its very easy to follow. The website even gives you a fade in and out function.

    Give thanks if you find this useful.
