I just added a text and email alert tone, however now I get no sound for either. I have done every other mod and am pretty confident that I didn't do anything wrong. I opened up the "cd /System/Library/Audio/UISounds" directory and then did putfile new-email.caf which matched the filename for the small .caf file in mt main directory. Now I have nothing, any ideas?

Thanks

I take it that theres an size limit on the sms-received.caf file because everytime I try to putfile the new tone, iPhoneinterface.exe closes. The file is 300k that im trying to push over, trying to figure out how to make file size smaller, its the tone, that keeps repeating message till it starts screaming.

Now the default tone doesn't work, even though file didn't get pushed, but its all good, will just find a different tone. Or if anyone have the default, do you mind posting?
yeah man i ran into that problem... i was trying to use a 15 second song clip and used the iPhone explorer (drag n drop) software and it just was too big i think... although i have homer saying "DOH" as the sms tone now... so it is possible to make the tone different, just needs to be small as hell apparently.

my homer DOH sound is 5kb so that should give you an idea how small lol...

sometimes the .caf files don't work... not real sure why... i have a homer simpson "doh" and a "woohoo" file and the woohoo file is only 4kb but wouldn't work for anything... the doh has worked for both the camera shutter and text messages.... so its sometimes just a matter of finding a few dif sounds to see which ones work.

currently i have "youve got mail" for my emails received tone

good luck! ill be posting the .caf files ive used in a moment

Here it is: my current sounds and what they are used with.

everything goes into the uisounds folder... if you are using iPhoneinterface type the following:

cd /System/Library/Audio/UISounds
putfile /System/Library/Audio/UISounds/lock.caf
putfile /System/Library/Audio/UISounds/unlock.caf
putfile /System/Library/Audio/UISounds/sms-received.caf
putfile /System/Library/Audio/UISounds/new-mail.caf
putfile /System/Library/Audio/UISounds/photoShutter.caf

for the lock sound i have mario saying "bye bye"
for the unlock sounds i have arnold schwarzenegger saying "good morning"

for the sms-received i have "doh" by homer (may change if i can)
for the new-mail i have "you've got mail!" by the AOL Voice
for the photo shutter i have the same doh by homer just to make sure it worked

if you want to use the doh sound (its the one labeled photoShutter.caf) you can rename it to whatever you want it to be used for, ie: lock.caf, unlock.caf, etc

the best advice i can give you is to go read the top post in this forum, how to add custom ringtones... read through what is posted and study the visual screen shots on how to do it, about the best tutorial you can possibly get.

what you need to do to extract the original files is open iPhoneinterface and type this:

cd /System/Library/Audio/UISounds
getfile /System/Library/Audio/UISounds/lock.caf

and do that for all the files. if you are looking to see which files are in the UISounds folder after typing cd /syst... type ls and it will list everything in the folder so you know you need to extract lock.caf, unlock.caf, sms-received.caf, etc save them and rename them or just place them in a dif. folder than your mod folder so if you want to reload them you can

hope that helps, its a little confusing your first time reading it, but if you read it through and tinker with iPhoneinterface and the manzana app you'll see what i mean pretty easily

id be down for the sounds, just to play with them or whatever... and if you are uploading just a few short sound clips then it couldnt possibly be too large... i uploaded 4 .caf sound clips in a zip file and it was like .5% of the allowed .zip file size
