    You can SSH into your phone and replace the actual sounds or you can make a Winterboard theme with the following directory structure:

    YourTheme > UISounds > ...

    In there you can put whatever sounds you wish to replace. The sound files are originally *.aiff with the extension changes to *.caf.


    Here are the filenames you can replace:
    Code:
    alarm.caf
    beep-beep.caf
    begin_record.caf
    begin_video_record.caf
    ct-busy.caf
    ct-call-waiting.caf
    ct-congestion.caf
    ct-error.caf
    ct-keytone2.caf
    ct-path-ack.caf
    dtmf-0.caf
    dtmf-1.caf
    dtmf-2.caf
    dtmf-3.caf
    dtmf-4.caf
    dtmf-5.caf
    dtmf-6.caf
    dtmf-7.caf
    dtmf-8.caf
    dtmf-9.caf
    dtmf-pound.caf
    dtmf-star.caf
    end_record.caf
    end_video_record.caf
    jbl_ambiguous.caf
    jbl_begin.caf
    jbl_cancel.caf
    jbl_confirm.caf
    jbl_no_match.caf
    lock.caf
    long_low_short_high.caf
    low_power.caf
    mail-sent.caf
    middle_9_short_double_low.caf
    new-mail.caf
    photoShutter.caf
    ReceivedMessage.caf
    RingerChanged.caf
    SentMessage.caf
    shake.caf
    short_double_high.caf
    short_double_low.caf
    short_low_high.caf
    SIMToolkitCallDropped.caf
    SIMToolkitGeneralBeep.caf
    SIMToolkitNegativeACK.caf
    SIMToolkitPositiveACK.caf
    SIMToolkitSMS.caf
    sms-received1.caf
    sms-received2.caf
    sms-received3.caf
    sms-received4.caf
    sms-received5.caf
    sms-received6.caf
    sq_alarm.caf
    sq_beep-beep.caf
    sq_lock.caf
    sq_tock.caf
    Tink.caf
    Tock.caf
    unlock.caf
    ussd.caf
    Voicemail.caf

    You will see six .caf files in there called sms-received1.caf thru sms-received6.caf. You need to replace these .caf files with your own .caf files.

    You will see a .caf file in there called Voicemail.caf. You need to replace this .caf file with your own .caf file.

    Don't know if E-mail can be changed ?

    In order for you to get your .mp3 to a .caf file, you will need to do a little conversion.

    Renaming alone will not do it with an MP3. conversion is necessary.

    CAF is a renamed AIFF file (*.aif). AIFF is an uncompressed file (like a .WAV file).

    iTunes can convert any file imported into an AIFF if you go into preferences/general/importing and select the AIFF encoder. Then just rename the file to the proper *.caf file you want to replace and SSH it to the phone.

    There's a category in cydia for sounds. I believe it is titled "Winterboard (sounds)" I can't remember for sure tho, but it's there. OR just do the ssh thing. I am not sure about how comfortable you are with computers. Using winterboard is easier, but ssh has more possibilities.
