spoke with the one of the guys who did it , and he told me he is yet to see an iphone brick and could not recover.. 100% could restore.yea i dont think its worth the risk of your iPhone s****ing the bed just for some ringtones.
i was gonna post that!! GRrrrrr lol oh well ! i love IRC!!!
Does'nt have to be m4a.. just make sure there is no number when u add the file and make sure it's under 30 secs. and it's mp3 Mp3 or m4a both work!! it's soo cool! hope a easier program comes out soon tho! THIS IS ONLY FOR MACS...just a quick question... what program can I use to change mp3 to m4a
If you follow the directions carefully u won't brick ur fone as long as ur fone is fully charge u can always use itune restore to bring stuff back... so yea..Daaang. I am very tempted to do this. How many people have done this successfully? Are we talking tens of people. Ha, I believe them when they say no iPhone has been bricked yet, but still. It's iPhone. I'm scared!
I've been using Quicktime Pro to grab 30 second bits of a song (Garageband, Audacity, or some other ilk would probably work too), export it to MPEG-4 and then changing the extension to .m4a. Otherwise iTunes will do it, as blakbyrd pointed out. To do this:just a quick question... what program can I use to change mp3 to m4a
I guess my phone was pretty close to fully charged, but I did follow the steps and screwed up everything the first time. I used the 'CTU24' ringtone I found online, already in m4a format. The file would not play on iPhone. I then restored iPhone to factory condition and repeated the process again, this time using the CTU24 ringtone with a m4a file I had created with iTunes. I think something about iTunes creates better compatibility. It works just fine. I'm pretty excited.If you follow the directions carefully u won't brick ur fone as long as ur fone is fully charge u can always use itune restore to bring stuff back... so yea..
I have a question. After doing all this, say it messes up or you want to start over, when you restore, do you lose all the custom ringtones and have a "fresh" iPhone?I just got doing this. It worked without any problems. I added a couple ringtones and yes it still syncs just fine with itunes.
Oh on a side note, music downloaded and protected by iTunes didn't work for me (no surprise). It transfered and everything but there is just silence when i go to play it.
Could you let us know what the more obscure/duplicated system sounds are for - ie. what's the difference between "SIMToolkitSMS.caf", "ReceivedMessage.caf" and "sms-received.caf", and basically which of those 3 would you use to change the SMS received sound?!If you follow the instructions everything works fine. Very little risk involved.
Tested and working with 20 ringtones.. i'm about to attack the system sounds right now.. Letcha know how that goes..
