    I installed the Cydia tweak called Bridge yesterday but I'm having some trouble figuring it out. The description for the tweak in Cydia says that you can import ringtones directly, which will then be found in the settings app, and the instructions say to go to the "Files" tab in the Bridge application and select the media item you wish to import. So I went to /private/var/mobile/Applications within the Bridge application, opened the "Ringtones" folder, and tried to select the ringtone I had created and wanted to import to Settings directly, but nothing happened.

    The instructions also say that you can use Bridge to import media files using any application that has the "open in" function, like iFile. So I went to iFile and found the same folder, clicked on the ringtone I was trying to import and the pop up lists Audio Player/Dropbox/PDF Expert/Ace Player/Downcast, but I don't see any option that would allow me to use Bridge to import the ringtone to Settings.

    I know I'm probably just missing some massive, obvious step because I've seen posts regarding Bridge and how nice it is to be able to import ringtones directly to the phone, but I can't figure it out, so if someone wouldn't mind pointing out what I'm doing wrong I would greatly appreciate it.

    My motivation in installing this tweak was so that I would be able to import/install ringtones I create in the Ringtone Designer apps directly to the settings app on my phone without having to sync and drag them through iTunes.

    ANY help would be MUCH APPRECIATED!!

    For ringtones I just manually move them to the same folder as the stock ringtones and they show up. But to do this I think they have to be in the correct file format. I use dolphin browser to download them and then iFile to add them with the stock ringtones.

    I haven't done this in a while but I'll try right now to confirm. But since you have iFile, just try to copy them to the stock folder if they're already the correct format.

    Sorry this isn't helpful in regards to Bridge. I really like the UI and layout of bridge. There are others apps that accomplish the same thing but bridge looks the best. Aside from this minor issue you're having, how is the app? I might purchase it.

    I successfully converted some short music files with Bridge for ringtone and don't know where Bridge placed them. They are not in the ringtone folder but it's showing in the add to contact ringtone listing. Anyone knows where Bridge stores ringtone files apart from ringtone folder? Thanks in advance.
