I stayed up until 4 AM flashing my iPhone's firmware with an Installer application, installing an SSH server, butchering a sound file from Our Man Flint, and uploading it over WinSCP back to my iPhone, all so I could have THIS as my ringtone!

Just this past day iTunes announced that not only can you only make ringtones out of songs you've already bought, but you have to pay an extra $1.98 to do so... AND the capability to do so is only available for a very select number of iTunes tracks.

Yes the iPhone is ridiculously restrictive but to tell the truth I don't think most people mind that much, I mean come on, it's just a fucking ringtone. For the people who want to go the extra mile and mess around with the innards, Apple's been a lot less vigilant about protecting against those sorts of inevitabilities than, say, Microsoft.

You could have tricked iTunes 7.4.1 into thinking you have a ringtone. There's a tutorial around about it. But I congratulate you for hacking your phone.

There's a way to tether your computer to use the iPhone's EDGE connection. That's always fun. I'm not sure how to do it for Windows, though. Let me know if you wanna try. I'll try to figure it out.
