I have been able to change all my alert sounds with ibrickr except for the calendar sound. No matter which sound I use, even if it's a sound successfuly working on another alert, I cannot get it to change the calendar alert sound. I do it the same way as the others and even restart the phone but I still get the beeps for the calendar alert. Any ideas?

The same exact thing happens to me. Just a flaw obviously. If you know what file it should be replacing then you could always just replace the file with one of your own.

Ok so I got home and fired up iBrickr... if you have it follow along...

1. Navigate to directory system/library/audio/uisounds
2. Click on "alarm.caf" and then download which puts the file into the iBrickr directory on your computer.
3. After you clicked download it should have opened windows explorer and the you should see the alarm.caf file.
4. Rename this file alarm.bak.caf for backup purposes
5. Find and rename the file you wish to replace the alarm file with and rename it yadayadayada.caf if the file is in .wav format it will carry over... if not you may have to convert it to .wav then rename to .caf.
6. click Upload in iBrickr and the new file will replace the stock file.
7. VOILA... enjoy your new alarm sound. :)

Incidentally this is my first "how to" post... how'd I do?

Ok cool. Now my question is, when iBrickr tried to auto replace it before, what file did it actually replace? Some other sound?

It's not working, I must be doing something wrong. I tried twice, it adds it on the listso the alarm.caf and the new one I named calalrt.caf are both there but when I test the calendar it still has the low beep alarm it had before.

If you are on a windows system... open Windows Explorer and go to search, select the c: drive and type in *.wav in the search window and it will pull up all the beeps, buzzes, chirps and hoots that your computer makes.

I've imported many of these as ringtones, the windows themes logons make great ringtones. :)
