Windows and Mac

1. To add a ringtone to your iPhone, using Windows Explorer or Finder just duplicate and rename any AAC file with a “M4R” extension, then double-click on it. This file will be added to your iTunes library automatically. (Some are reporting a size limit for the music file, so if you have trouble, using a smaller file may help)

2. Now, click on your iPhone in iTunes, and go to the ringtone section. You should now see your new ringtone. If you want to be sure about the sync, feel free to click “selected ringtones” and check off the file explicitly, though this shouldn’t be required.

3. Now SYNC your phone. You’re Done!

Mac Notes

You have to make sure the actual extension is changed. The easiest way to make sure you are changing the extension is to use Command-I to “Get Info” on the file in Finder. Then change the extension in the “Name & Extension” field to “M4R”. Finder may ask you if you are sure you want to change the extension. Once you double click, the file should show up in the Ringtone area in iTunes.

Windows Notes

Again, you need to make sure the actual extension is changed.

Opens My Computer, Then goes to Tools-Folder Options-View

UNCHECK “Hide extensions for known file types” once this is done you can simply rename the file with a new extension of M4R which then changes the Icon to say RING.

Geohot released Limera1n jailbreak! For now it is working on Windows only. But one thing to remember : if you are after unlock do not upgrade to iOS 4.1. This solution apply for the iPhone 4 which could be upgraded to iOS 4.1 without updating the baseband.

Well…Not happy with iPhone at all. The signal issue isn’t network related for sure!!!

I used two microSIMs ( O2 & 3) in following devices :

1) i4 16GB
2) HTC Desire
3) Nokia E72

and the results are following :

O2 microSIM in i4 – no 3G signal or very rarely for few seconds, keep switching
O2 microSIM in Desire – constant 3G signal (3-5 bars,switching to H when download/browsing)
O2 microSIM in E72 – same as Desire

3 microSIM in i4 – rare 3G signal, most of the time “No network coverage”
3 microSIM in Desire – constant signal ( 3-5 bars)
3 microSIM in E72 – same as Desire.

All phones were laying on the table for 1 hour untouched.

(In Desire & E72 used adaptor from O2)
