    As some of you know, I have been working on getting the small speaker in the iPod to do things besides making annoying beeping and clicking.I'm back from my meeting and starting on it now.

    STATUS:
    No Change in Sound
    Still in Devolpment

    I've made a few comments on using the piezoelectric speaker, but to no avail. I'm glad you're looking into it. It would be cool if you could figure out how to integrate it into Apps like NES. I wish the best of luck to you! BTW, the .aif files for alarm and keyboard clicks are .aiff, 16-bit (little endian), Mono, 44.100kHz. I've tried messing around with changing alarm sounds out, but didn't get anywhere with it.

    I have found a guide online on how to do this, and It might work.

    The piezo tones for the system sounds including the calendar alert can be found in /System/Library/Frameworks/Celestial.framework/SystemSoundBuzzToneSequences.plist

    To change the sounds you will need plutil which is part of Erica's Utilities (under Utilities in Insaller.app).

    To change the sounds:

    1. Connect with SSH and CD to the directory
    Code:
    cd /System/Library/Frameworks/Celestial.framework
    2. Make a backup of the original file
    Code:
    cp SystemSoundBuzzToneSequences.plist SystemSoundBuzzToneSequences.plist.orig
    3. Conver the file from binary to XML format:
    Code:
    /var/root/bin/plutil -c xml1 SystemSoundBuzzToneSequences.plist
    4. Edit the file using vi (or copy it to your computer and edit it using your preferred text editor). There is no need to convert the file back to binary.

    5. Reboot the iPod

    Format for the file is the same as for alarm sounds (/Library/Alarms/Alarms.plist) which is well documented in other posts.

    The UISounds Folder "Does" effect the outside speaker.
    Delete the file and it wont make noise on lock and unlock.
    Changing the files does no good though.:/
