    Yup, custom SMS tones require root access, which you only have after jailbreaking with certain programs. Also, you need to know about the file formats.

    Just quoting what you said previous post.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------

    7. Navigate to the following directory on your iPhone: “/System/Library/Audio/UISounds”. Change one of the "sms-received1-6.caf" files to "sms-received_*.caf" where "*" is an integer from 1 to 6 that is least preferable


. For example: Rename “sms-received6.caf” to “sms-received_6.caf” . This will backup the original file, so we can replace the Electronic file with our custom sound.

    8. Upload the file from your desktop to the directory on your iPhone. This will then replace the original file that you renamed. Now go back to your phone and choose in "Settings/Sounds/ your new tone
, For example: if you replaced sms-received6.caf, then you should choose Electronic, as this is the 6th and last one in the list.

    You need a JBd iPhone.
