    There is no app needed. Just ssh into the phone, find the UI sounds directory, and change the name of your sms tone to.... SMS-received-1, or 2, or 3, ect...What I would do though is rename the original to .bak or something, that way if you ever wanted to revert back to it you could. I hope this helps!

    EDIT: Also make sure the sound file is a .caf file...;)

    Install WinterBoard - much safer and easier than mucking around with ssh.

    Once you have WinterBoard there are sound themes you can install (Cydia)
    :cool:

    Greg is right, however if you want to make your own you have to do it the way I mentioned. SSH Guide. They use WinSCP...for mac use FUGU

    Also, using SSH to change files is perfectly safe and effective as long as you're careful (for example, don't accidentally delete something). I've found it is a quick and easy way to mod your phone a number of ways.

    Honestly I think newbies should stick to the Winterboard method, granted it does involve SCP but they don't have to worry about backing their files up.
