    I have a jailbroken iphone 4G and I am trying to upload some ringtones I've previously used on my iphone 3. I am not using Windows and therefore not using Itunes.
    I have read stuff on the forums and I have attempted to do the following.
    I installed OpenSSH from Cydia and can login using a SSH client ( putty ) via Wifi.
    I login to the iphone as root but in the Library folder there is no subfolder called Ringtones.
    So, I'm stumped.
    Can someone point me the way ?

    look for any files ending with the extension .m4r, that should be the extension that ringtones use.

    Good luck.

    I found that by going up a few levels using cd .. I was able to find the correct Ringtones folder with the .m4r files.
    I am struggling with the syntax to copy the ringtones from my ubuntu box over to the iphone.
    When connected via SSH to the folder parent folder of Ringtones what do I t
    cp \myubuntubox\pathtofile ringtonetest.m4r Ringtones

    Can someone assist ?
