    You're kidding right? It's the shell prompt for root access. Type command here...

    userid: root
    pwd: alpine

    drop your .m4r files into /Library/Ringtones with pscp.

    If your phone is jailbroken I'd strongly recommend changing the default root password too.

    Step by step instructions here Password · Cydia. You can replace steps 0 and 1 with: putty into your iPhone, Login as root/alpine.

    There are 2 passwords you need to change - for users 'root' and 'mobile.' Current password for 'mobile' should be 'dottie'.
