    Default Music as alert tone tweak

    One more thing and I promise I'll leave you guys alone for a bit.

    I read an article on the best Cydia tweaks on the weekend and there was one that allows you to select a track from your music and use it as your phone ringtone. Problem is I can't remember what it's called?

    Does anyone know what it's called or have it?
    If anyone can help me it would be most appreciated as its a feature I loved on my old bb and isn't in ios
    Pls help me

    U can create your own ringtones for your iPhone using ur favorite music ad it doesn't require u to be jailbroken to do it.

    1. First get the song you want to make the ringtone from.
    2. Open it with quicktime pro (or any other editor)
    3. Cust out the section you want as the ringtone and save it as a new mp3.
    4. Import it into iTunes
    5. in iTunes go into
    Preferences > Advanced > Importing

    Set to Import using: AAC encoder 128Kbps

    6. Right click on the file you want as a ringtone and select

    Convert selection to AAC
    Your file will now be converted to an AAC file. (appears in iTunes under your original file)

    7. Right click on the new file, click on show in finder (or open folder on windows)
    8. You will now see your AAC file, all you have to do now is change the file extension from .m4a to .m4r
    9. Drag the file out of the folder to the desktop, then drop it back into itunes.

    If you want to create ringtones from just your music I'd use the tweak "Rinngo". If you want to be able to create them from any audio from any app on your device use AudioExplorer+. Both are available on Cydia. I prefer AudioExplorer+. Best of luck.
