So I just got an iPhone 8G 3G unlocked and jailbroken just wondering about a few things. First I was looking for a good place to get themes (and how to install them) and maybe a tutorial on how to change my message tone. Thanks for any help

I found this when I was trying to do the same. it's a bit of a process, but give it a try.


  1. Trim MP3 files using Audacity (usually SMS notification should be shorter, roughly 3-4 seconds should be good)
  2. Import the MP3 file to iTunes
  3. Change the iTunes import to AIFF (Follow the ringtones guide to change importing mode in iTunes)
  4. Find the AIFF file and copy to desktop
  5. Change the extension to “.caf”
  6. SFTP to the iPhone using Cyberduck (Mac) or WinSCP (Windows) or any other SFTP software
  7. Navigate to the following directory: “/System/Library/Audio/UISounds”
  8. Change one of the “sms-received<x>.caf” file to “sms-received_<x>.caf” where <x> is an integer from 1 to 6 that is least preferrable
    For example: Rename “sms-received6.caf” to “sms-received_6.caf” to replace the Electronic with custom sound
    1. File name mapping to notification name:
      sms-received1.caf -> Tri-tone
      sms-received2.caf -> Chime.caf
      sms-received3.caf -> Glass
      sms-received4.caf -> Horn
      sms-received5.caf -> Bell
      sms-received6.caf -> Electronic
  9. Upload the file on the desktop using the old name of that was changed
    For example: if “sms-received_6.caf” is changed to “sms-received_6.caf”, upload the file using the name “sms-received6.caf”
  10. Choose in iPhone the replaced tone
    For example: if you replaced sms-received6.caf, then you should choose Electronic

here's the ringtone one (it has a few details left out of the sms one)


  1. Choose an MP3 file and trim it to 30 seconds or less - I use Audacity (download link) to do it
  2. Import that MP3 into iTunes
  3. Goto iTunes -> Preferences (for Mac) or Edit -> Preferences (for PC)
  4. On General, click on the “Import Settings” button and change to AAC
  5. Find the trimmed MP3 file inside iTunes, right click and choose “Convert Selection to AAC”
  6. Right click the AAC version of the file and choose “Get Info”
  7. Note the path to the file as indicated by the “Where” section under the “Summary” tab
  8. Navigate to the location of the file and copy it to desktop
  9. Change the extension of the copied file to “.m4r”
  10. Open the files in iTunes and it should be automatically inserted under Ringtones category, which then can be transferred to iPhone
