Tutorial – Create a custom ringtone for receiving SMS

As you know, Apple has not given us the ability to customize the SMS ringtone on our iDevice as you would your ringtone.

Here is a tutorial for iTunes 10, allowing you to create one and transfer it in SSH for the application to your iPhone.

Prerequisites:

  • iTunes 10
  • IPhone
  • Have installed OpenSSH via Cydia
  • Know how to connect in SSH
