    How to make Custom Unlock/Lock Sounds

    As my title specifies this is only for WINDOWS users, there is another guide that is different, for MAC users here: http://www.ifans.com/forums/showthread.php?t=304940

    Whats Needed:
    To be Jailbroken, check out www.Jailbreakme.com
    Winterboard,
    an SSH client on your computer ( i recommened Winscp [http://winscp.net/]
    and Open SSH on your Device

    If you do not know how to use SSH check out this guide:http://www.ifans.com/forums/showthread.php?t=163253



    Your Sounds
    First we need to get our sounds file.. Put them in a folder on your desktop..name it whatever its not really important
    get your sounds and import your sounds into iTunes
    Rename it to Unlock or Lock.


    Getting the File to AIFF
    ok, so next,
    Open iTunes then go to preferences > General> Import Settings> then from the import using menu select AIFF Encoder see this link for help http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1348 then select your Sounds then go to Advanced> Then create AIFF Version, Next open with Windows Explorer for the Next Step

    Changing the AIFF to CAF
    Now, We Need to Change the AIFF to CAF
    so you wont see the actual file extensions so u MUST do this: open up to your two sounds (not in itunes where they are placed , eg. a folder.)> then go into Tools> Folder Options> View> then hide extensions for known file types is selected so deselect that then apply then you can just edit the actual AIFF ... try this if you need help with AIFF to CAF http://modmyi.com/forums/skinning-th...-caf-file.html

    The Folder
    Then on your desktop make a folder called CustomSounds, then in that make another folder called UISounds, Put your CAF sounds in here. Then rename CustomSounds to CustomSounds.theme It must be .theme but the "customSounds part can be ANYTHING you want it to be (this is what you will see in winterboard)

    SSH
    Connect your SSH
    then navigate to /Library/Themes
    Add your CustomSounds (or whatver you called it) here.
    Disconnect your SSH
    then open winterboard and select your CustomSounds (or whatever you called it) Respring and your Done!

    Comment if you have any problems

    This is not a copy of JakeMan's Tutorial it has been rewritten for Windows Computers. I found out all the Windows Steps on my own.
