Last week, we released MakeiPhoneRingtone 1.3, after iTunes 7.5 and iPhone OS 1.1.2 again made it possible to use custom ringtones on your iPhone. After a full week, the magic continues, and today, we’ve got a minor MakeiPhoneRingtone update. With version 1.3.1, only songs 40 seconds or shorter will be accepted, to match what the iPhone will take.
As before, drop any AAC file on MakeiPhoneRingtone and it will be processed and passed off to iTunes, where it will be handled as a Ringtone. The file will show up in iTunes’ Ringtone sub-library as well as the Ringtones tab in the iPhone section, where you can sync it to your iPhone. Once it’s on your iPhone, you can use the file as a global ringtone, per-contact ringtone, or even an alarm clock sound.
• iTunes 7.5 and iPhone OS 1.1.2 are required.
• Files must be AAC audio files, ending with .m4a, .m4r, .mp4, or .aac.
• Files must be 40 seconds or shorter.
• As noted previously, custom ringtones are undocumented and unsupported by Apple, and they may change or break with future updates, as they have in the past.
