Alert notification sound stuck
I have two App Store apps (Chime &GymGoal) that have built in notification sounds. Both sounds are overridden by one of my custom ringtones. The built-in tones are completely ignored even though I can seemingly set them and*play them in the app. But when it comes time to play the notification while running the app, it plays my custom ring tone rather than the selected sound.*Placing the phone on vibrate has no effect either, the sound still plays. The sound also doesn't play through my earphones.
If I change the name of the ringtone file using iFile, those two apps*won't play any sound at all, even the selected sound from he apps. If I swap the name of the ringtone with another ringtone, those two apps*play the new sound with that filename. I've deleted the apps a couple of times and wiped the cache etc. but no luck. The same problem even followed me when I upgraded to 5.1.1 and re-jailbroke my phone. I thought a total restore would have fixed it, but it didn't. So I'm guessing it is caused by some preference file that remained during the restore process.
