    Over the past several weeks Cydia has been flooded with ringtone packages which is awesome! I'm wondering if the same principal could be used to write programs to add sounds to text messages.

    It replaces sms-received1 "Tri-Tone" and the sent/received sounds you hear in the app.

    Since there's such a "market" for text tones let me ask. Do you guys want actual tones (beeps, chimes, etc) or like song snippets?

    I did that for a friend actually - worked out fine. What song snippets would you want in a pack of six?

    what did you use to make the snippets, what format are they in, and how do you assign them? is it via a hack or through an app?

    Its easily done through Winterboard. I edited my files using Audacity and Garageband, exported to .aif renamed to .caf and boom. Making it a WB package keeps things safe and nondestructive also allowing users to have multiple choices for SMS tones without replacing the stock file.

    I'll tell you but now that I know I'd really like to start making some packages.

    Muster create a folder "CustomeTone.theme" inside it make another called "UISounds" you put the replacement files in there.

    Well I'm going to work on some packages anyway but if you have iTunes and SSH you can finish the job yourself (since you have the clips already). You can use iTunes to convert to AIFF then change the extension to .caf (with the correct file name of course "sms-received1.caf" I believe) then load it onto your phone like I said

    ok so now i know how to do it for the basic sms-recieved1.caf but how would i do it if i wanted to assign it to a specific person when they text me
