Everyone says there is a "manual" way of doing it and then they tell you to use iTunes, but if you're like me, you're travelling on business in a foreign country and your laptop does not have iTunes and you don't have a way of getting it and/or don't want it.
For this example I'm using the provider "du" in Dubai, UAE (United Arab Emirates) but this method works for virtually all providers.
The requirements in this case to truly "manually update........
As shown below you can find ringtones in the "/private/var/stash/Ringones*" directory of your iPhone.
Different reports have said that the .m4r format is really an MP4 file and some have said AAC and some also say "it's the same as the M4A" format. Whatever the case is, one easy way is to install the silent theme from Cydia and copy that into your ringtones directory.

This is pretty bad, ever since my phone has been unlocked the battery life is horrible. Many others have reported this issue on provider unlocked phones and even jail broken phones. We're talking issues as bad as losing 1% every 3 minutes which is what I seem to have observed as well.
For now I'm going to relock the phone, and hopefully a firmware update will address this issue. This is very annoying and it seems apparent this is also happening on 3G phones and that........
You need to jailbreak your phone and inside Cydia you'll find "PushMod" which will allow you to set your mail check time to 1 minute instead of 15-minutes.
This is a great mod and has saved me a lot of stress and frustration, the lack of Blackberry style "free push service" makes iPhone less attractive, but this solves that.
Apple needs to make mobileme free and have a Blackberry style chat network to compete, I'm not willing to pay for something Blackberry........
First of all you need to be jailbroken, but this is not covered here.
Go into Cydia and click "Manage Sources" then "Edit"and add: repo666.ultrasn0w.com
Then search for "ultrasn0w" as a package and install it, that's all there is to it, your iPhone is finally unlocked so when you travel abroad you can avoid ridiculous roaming charges, or you can switch providers and use any SIMcard you like.
You'd really thi........
Apple crippled the iPhone by not allowing multi-tasking of the non-primary apps. I use SSH a lot and I don't want to close my session just to check my e-mail, etc, now an app found in Cydia called "Backgrounder" allows just that.
Although it's not perfect, we installed the correct one for "3.x" iPhones and hit "Reload SpringBoard" and the hour/circle glass has just been going for minutes.
It seems like it installed fine even with the crash t........
This happened during a sync of my iPhone while installing some apps. This usually happens to non-jailbroken iPhones who are trying to install non-Apple approved software OR jailbroken phones who haven't done the "Sync update".
How to fix this error and get the Sync Update
Open Cydia - Manage - Sources - Edit
Add this source: http://cydia.hackulo.us
Then under the section "Hackulo.us" install "Ap........
Truly, the only way to unleash the capabilities and customization abilities of iPhone are to jailbreak, it's not just for hackers anymore.
A few days ago someone by the named of "geohot" released a single click application called "purplera1n", which does the entire operation smoothly and seamlessly.
In our case, the first time it went as far as "done, wait for reboot" on our Windows machine and for minutes we waited and saw the pic on the iPhone w........
