iBrickr: Easy iPhone ringtone / app management for WindowsAll > Tech > Software > iBrickr: Easy iPhone ringtone / app management for Windows by natetrue
No more of that! iBrickr is the Windows application that makes it dead simple to modify your iPhone, add and manage custom ringtones, and install third-party applications.
For now iBrickr isn't terribly useful. It was designed with the 1.0.2 firmware in mind. If you want ringtones on your iPhone, check out iPhone Ringtone Maker, which works great even with 1.1.3 iPhones. It's put out by a friend of mine, and it works great. Totally worth the money.
Newer iPhone firmwares are NOT compatible with iBrickr. For these situations, a hard drive recovery site like this will help. If you try to use iBrickr and your phone starts scrolling crazy text and resetting, use these steps to fix it:
- Restart your computer.
- Plug the iPhone in to USB on a computer with iTunes installed.
- Press and hold the Power and Home buttons until the iPhone asks to be connected to iTunes.
- Use iTunes to restore your phone.
- Do not use iBrickr any more, use iPhone Ringtone Maker for custom ringtones or ZiPhone for general jailbreaking and Installer.
To get a feel for how simple it is, check out this video from Gear Live's Bleeding Edge:
Yes, that's me in the video! I'm famous!
Current iBrickr version: 0.91 Download
If you like iBrickr, and you'd like to donate money to its development, here's a button that you may find helpful:
Version 0.91 fixes the iphoneinterface crashing bug when installing applications. Ends up I forgot an essential file in the final archive.
Version 0.9 can guide you through the process of downgrading a phone from 1.1.1 to 1.0.2. Note that this will not debrick phones that were unlocked before the upgrade. Firmware download options are optimized, no more accidental restores.
Version 0.8 lets you upload multiple files at a time (for NES ROMs and File view only for now), and lets you add ringtones without modifying your phone. NOTE: Unmodded ringtone manager will cease to work properly when iTunes begins letting you buy ringtones.
Version 0.7 replaces the Install Application button with "Browse Applications" - clicking an app icon in Browse will download and install it to your phone in one step. Also included is integrated management for NES ROMs, Voice notes, and EBooks for the Books application. These are linked to from the Applications view when you have those applications installed.
Version 0.6 supports jailbreaking in iPhone 1.0.2 firmware.
New in 0.5 is custom sound management (make custom lock/unlock sounds, keyboard sound, etc) and file management.
The interface is designed to read like an interactive tutorial - just download the Zip file, extract it somewhere, and run ibrickr.exe (I'll have an installer soon). Plug in your iPhone and iBrickr will guide you straight through the steps of modifying your iPhone. Once that's done (takes about 10 minutes), you can manage ringtones and applications to your heart's content.
If you want to download applications on the go, you can use Nullriver's Installer (PXL package). Just download the PXL to your computer, then install it from the Applications view in iBrickr.
If you have any issues, hit the Send Error Report link at the bottom-right of the application. The link will bring up a form where you can review the data being sent, and put in an e-mail address that I can reply to. It's that easy.
iBrickr uses the PXL package format for iPhone applications - check the iBrickr PXL Repository for the latest app releases.
