    Yesterday i was running jailbroken iOS 5.1.1 & amongst other things i had a custom ringtone on there. It'd been that long that i'd forgotten how i even put it on there.

    I updated to iOS 7 & i lost the ringtone off my phone which i'm now wanting to put back on but can't remember how.

    I just tried plugging my phone in, opening iTunes, clicking the "tones" tab under my phone & Syncing selected tones.

    I then get the message saying this is synced with another account (on my PC) & i can erase the entire phone if i want & sync with this library. Thing is there's so much i would end up losing.

    So how do i get this ringtone on my phone?

    Just downloaded & tried it but i can't get it to work

    When i open the manager & get on the left side a list of "Voice memo" & "application".

    No mention of tones, so i try & drag into voice memo & it just says the .m4r extension is not supported.

    How do i do it?

    Make sure you click on Copy Trans Manager (Free).
    Once it recognizes your phone you can add the tone.

    I did click on that & i couldn't find anything to work.

    Anyway, in the end i thought it was taking too long so i just took a gamble & went through itunes. Thankfully nothing was erased despite it saying there would be.

    That's good. I use copy trans manager on 3 iphones and 2 ipods, I've been using it so long I don't even pay attention to the steps anymore. I don't use itunes for tones or music at all.
