    I have some custom ringtones in my iPhone that I want to get out. I lost all my iTunes files due to an upgrade, so now I'll need to get that file from my phone. My iTunes doesn't work very well (my computer is old and very slow...), I am wondering if I could get my ringtones out through iFile?
    Looks like none of my ringtones (that I made myself) is under /Library/Ringtones. I don't know where else to look. I am using ios 7.
    Any help is appreciated. Thank you.

    (If someone asked this before, please point me to the thread. I did search the forum, but I could've missed it...)

    yea, I read that webpage before I posted the question.
    I don't think it helps me. I am not trying to put ringtones into my iPhone. I am trying to get it out from my iphone because I am switching to android.

    Sorry, I guess I didn't make my question clear.
    The ringtones are already in my iPhone and I am able to set them as ringtones. It has always been that way for me. But now, I want to get the files out from my iphone so I can use in my new android phone.
    I been looking in iFile, but I can't find my ringtones anywhere. All the files in the ringtones folder are the ringtones from Apple.
    Of course I can always just remake my ringtones.... but I just don't understand how I can use those ringtones but can't find the files.

    well the way I read the link I shared in iOS 7 the custom ringtones are hidden even with iFile but if you download the cydia app toneenabler they will appear when you look for them using iFile
