As soon as youhit recover and it begins downloading in the download section of iTunes, unplug your iPhone, you only want it to download the firmware, not actually restore the phone.

Yeah you just want to get the software. Doing a recover pre or post mod will force you to start over.

Are you talking about AFTER adding a ringtone or during? If during it could be jailbreak is overriding iTunes. You can continue to sync after adding custom ringtones however if you restore ringtones disappear.

activation is shutdown until 3pm PST meaning 6pm est. There is nothing you can do currently just wait it out.

I also wanted to add that you can use straight mp3 files. I didn't bother converting the files and it still worked.

mcnearcj I think they need to be made in iTunes though. Again I THINK thats the case, I read that on creations.

IF YOU LOSE THE ABILITY TO SYNC:
Download Orig plist

Add it to your Directory.

type: cd /System/Library/Lockdown Then press the enter key.

Type: putfile Services.plist Then press the enter key.

Give credit to the original author who posted the tutorial hence this is not your work.

cant seem to get past the step where the phone says "Please connect to iTunes" and the computer says "Sending More Files... Booting iPhone..."

how long does this part usually take?

For all of you who have done this ringtone addition, would you say the risk is minimal enough to give it a shot, or should I wait it out? I have been increasingly interested in adding ringtones on my phone, but do the risks outweight the benefits, especially since I am not all that technologically inclined (at least going deep into programs and editing).

What are the chances that trying something like this will brick my phone?
