Broken iPhone Silent Switch Bypass

This is a solution for regaining your ringtones and system sounds for those with a broken iPhone silent switch.

First, to regain your system sounds install the "Silent Switch Bypass" from the iClarified repository. To find instructions on adding this source to your Installer app follow this tutorial.

The bypass was created by XianLi and modifies your SystemSoundBehaviours plist.

Next, to regain your Ringtones all you have to do is install VideosTone. You can find instructions on how to do this here

My switch stays on silent and cannot be turned back to ring. This worked for me (iphone 6): Turn on assertive touch (through settings), then go on device and "Unmute." Turn off assertive touch (if you don't want it). It works fine now.

you can go to settings>>accessibility>>assistive touch. Then you can mute and unmute the iPhone.
