Does this affect ringtones made through iBrickr?

From what I understand, yes. But I am not certain. I'm sure others will post up here soon with rage.

I download the iTunes 7.4 Update and installed ringtones afterward. They still seem to be working for me.

*EDIT: I am using iBrickr though, maybe it's related to Ambrosia.

Plug in your iPhone with iTunes running and see if they disappear or not....

The ring tones get wiped when you sync.... Obviously if you add them after they will be there.

I believe if you uncheck the Sync Ringtones box in iTunes, then it doesn't tamper with your modded ringtones, I may be wrong, but I thought I read that somewhere.

I unchecked the box and everything seems fine. I will NEVER check the box anyway. I make my own ringtones and system sounds... ... For free.

This is how I got around iTunes killing my custom ringtones.

I installed itune 7.4. Unchecked automatic sync. Unchecked sync ringtones.

I then connected my iPhone up to the computer and manually synced.

This is how I kept my custom ringtones.

This does not effect iBrickr. iBrickr installs the ringtones into /var/root/Library/Ringtones. I just tried enabling sync ringtones and resynced the iPhone. My custom ringtones are still there and intact.

I tried bot syncing with my mac and pc and they are still intact. I believe is it has to do with certain software as some install the ringtones in different directories.

Nope! Didn't work. iTunes wiped it...
Well you know right after unchecking anything thats synced it will wipe it out, try unchecking and then re-transferring your ringtones and then sync and see what happens.
