Turn off Beejive Push Notification noise

    I recently installed Beejive.

    I want to set up the Push notifications so that I am alerted via vibrate - not an audio alert.

    I have tried to fiddle with Beejive's preferences, turning 'message received sound' on and off, adjusting the sound pack (default, AIM, Yahoo etc), and even going as far as to Jailbreak into my iPhone and replace the audio files for Beejive.

    When I set the iPhone to silent with the toggle switch, Beejive does indeed vibrate only - but I want it to do that when the iPhone is not on silent, as well.

    Does anybody have any idea? Is this a Beejive bug not turning off the sound, or are all Push notifications followed by an audio alert, whether the user specifies it or not? (I have also turned 'sound' off under push notifications, that stops vibrate AND sound).

    Sorry for the lengthy post!

    As I said above, I have done this. It also disabled the vibrate completely.

    OK, solved.

    Due to be Jailbreaking, I accessed the Beejive folder and began manually replacing files (its matte now, no more glossy, vibrant mess!)

    Anyway, I thought I'd have a pop at the sound files.

    Upon first try, renaming the originals files meant that it would automatically default to the SMS tone. Worse!

    Secondly, I made my own .caf file. Weirdly, it still defaulted to the SMS sound. WTF was going on?

    Then my friend took the ORIGINAL .caf file used, and muted it using Audacity, and voila - I have vibration in normal and silent modes, but no audio :) PERFECT.

    It seems that the .caf file holds some kind of instructions on when to set a vibrate off, etc.

    If anyone would like the file, please PM me.
