I recently picked up an iPhone. It’s sexy. However, I’m definitely not going to pay money to create a ringtone out of a song that I already own – sorry Apple, RIAA, AT&T, your mom thats not going to cut it. Lucky for me I discovered a free solution to get ringtones straight to your iPhone, just follow these steps:
- Change your iTunes Import Settings to encode AAC
- Import the MP3 you have already sliced up as a ringtone, into iTunes
- Right click that MP3 in iTunes and select Convert to AAC
- Rename the extension to m4r and add to your iTunes Library
Drag the AAC file into MakeiPhoneRingtone2.app
DONE. Your ringtones will now appear under the iTunes Ringtones section which will automatically sync with your iPhone the next time you connect it. How’s that for stickin’ it to the man?
UPDATE: This works only with the 1.1.2 iPhone update
