Tips & Tricks|Creating iPhone Ringtones

Here is a painless way of getting your fave MP3 ringtones on your iPhone.
What you need:
  1. MP3 Song 
  2. iTunes
Part 1: Prepare iTunes
Fire up iTunes > Edit > Preferences > General (tab)

Click Import Settings Make sure AAC Encoder is selected (you may change the quality as desired)

Part 2: Preparing the MP3 file
Locate the track you want to create into a ringtone, Right Click then Get Info, Options (tab)

Modify Start and Stop time to shorten the track (this is not permanent so don't worry, I find 30 - 45 seconds is more than enough for a ringtone) Once you have the part you want click OK.

Now right click the track again but this time select create AAC version

The converted track (AAC) should appear below your track but this will be shorter, select that then click Show in Windows Explorer

Show in Windows Explorer
Select the m4a file > Hit F2 (Rename) > Change the extension to m4r

Double click the file and it should show up under Ringtones in iTunes

Part 3: Sync the Ringtone to your iPhone
Connect your iPhone and sync (or drag and drop to iPhone)

Tips & Tricks|Orientation Aware Backgrounds

I just wanted to share some stuff I learned over at xda-dev's forum today.
Anyway as the title states this is about today themes and Orientation Aware Backgrounds. It's really quite simple
All you need is 2 images [3 if you want to change the Start Menu image as well] of the proper resolution.
tdywater_320_240.gif [Landscape Image] = 320 x 240 image
tdywater_240_320.gif [Portrait Image] = 240 x 320 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 190 x 290 image
tdywater_640_480.gif [Landscape Image] = 640 x 480 image
tdywater_480_640.gif [Portrait Image] = 480 x 640 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 399 x 586 image
What you do is copy the files to \Windows directory and viola! Orientation Aware Backgrounds!
Notes: The theme's default images will be used once you switch themes. So you would need to copy the files back again to \Windows dir for it to work again, what I do is I have placed Wallpaper sets in ZIP files on my Storage Card so I can change and change as desired.…
