How To Guide: Custom ringtones longer than 30 sec on 1.1.2
I thought I'd share a way to add ringtones that are longer than 30 seconds (tested and working in 1.1.2).
- Convert the full song to AAC
- Rename extension from .m4a to .m4r
- Use WinSCP to SFTP to your iPhone
- Browse to /private/var/root/Media/iTunes_Control/Ringtones
- Upload your full ringtone to this directory
- Browse to /private/var/root/Media/iTunes_Control/iTunes
- Edit Ringones.plist
the following is an example of an edited Ringtones.plist file:
* ringtone1.m4r and ringtone2.m4r are the filenames of the .m4r files
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
* the GUID key is a unique 16 character (hex?) string (AFAIK, not of any importance)
* the Name key ("Ringtone 1" and "Ringtone 2" in the above example) is the name that appears in the custom ringtone list
* leave the Total Time key value as 1
And there you have it... a full length ringtone available for selection in Settings -> Sounds -> Ringtone
It is also recommended to disable ringtone syncing in iTunes, otherwise all custom ringtones will be removed upon syncing.
I do encourage anyone with more knowledge than I, to script this entire process.
