    ok so i have seen some threads on how to use songs as an alarm but the thing is apple onlky allows ringtones as alarms so i have created this guide to show people how to use full songs as alarms.

    ***NOTE*** FOR THISE NOT WANTING TO JAILBREAK AND SSH IT ONTO THE PHONE I HAVE PROVIDED SOFTWARE THAT DOES THE EXACT SAME THING WITHOUT THE USE OF JAILBNREAKING ***NOTE***

    ***NOTE*** ONLY ONE SONG CAN BE USED AT A TIME, USE THE FOLLOWING STEPS TO CREATE AS MANY SONG ALARMS AS YOU WANT, BUT YOU WILL HAVE TO MANUALY SELECT THE DIFFERENT SONG YOU WANT ***NOTE***



    i-FunBox FOR WINDOWS USERS

    i-Funtastic FOR MAC USERS

    ***NOTE*** I DONT OWN A MAC SO I CANT TEST THIS PROGRAM OUT, FROM WHAT I HAVE READ IT IS A GOOD MAC BASED PROGRAM***NOTE***

    STEP 1: In itunes find the song you want to use as an alarm and create an ACC version.

    STEP 2: Drag the ACC version to your desktop and rename it from m4a to m4r, click yes

    STEP 3: Download iFunBox (provided in this post as attachment) and run it click run ***NOTE IT IS SAFE I HAVE USED IT LOTS ***NOTE

    STEP 4: connect your iphone to the computer and click on your iphone within iFunbox and double click the ringtones section.

    If it runs on a PC, it won't run on a Mac, unless a separate version has been compiled. But an option for those who have Macs with Windows in the Boot Camp partition or a virtual machine would be able to use your tool.

    no problem just trying to make things easier for those non jailbreakers

    for all you non jailbreakers you can alter your text message sounds just gotta find the right directory in the raw system files root/system/lybrary/audio/sms-received1,2,3,4,5,6 just back those up and import your created text message sounds

    Any idea if this application would allow one to replace other system sounds, say, for example, the text messaging sounds?

    Edit: never mind, just read your latest post. I think I might have to give this one a try. I never liked the bubble sounds.

    Will do. I'm going to try to replace the stock sounds with the Thunderbird email chime. When I get time to do it, I will share the results!

    Is there any sort of warranty issues that I would run into by connecting my phone to this program to change sounds...if for whatever reason down the line I have to take my phone to the Apple Store or a repair/replacement?

    Thanks

    thanks for the information I did some reading and the8r website says it's only compatible up to the 2.2.1 firmware

    hopefully we'll see an update and they will make it 3.0 compatible
