    Default Saving SMS tones in Cydia

    I'm sure this has been discussed, but I can't find it in any of the postings..

    I have a few SMS tones downloaded from the Cydia store and want to keep them when I upgrade to iPhone 5. I don't want to JB my iPhone 5. Is there a way to save these SMS tones to my PC?

    I have a jailbroken 3G and it is sooo time for me to upgrade.

    I don't know of any way of saving SMS tones without a JB. Get ToneFx, and just JB for that app.

    You can get them off your phone while jailbroken, but I don't think it's been confirmed yet if you'll be able to load them back on iOS5, or if you'll only have the option to buy new tones from Apple. (I could be wrong; I haven't really been following the iOS 5 betas.)

    At any rate, it's easy enough to save them now using a program like iPhonebrowser or iFunbox. Google around a bit and you'll find one. If they are tones you're activating in Winterboard, the files will be in Library>Themes>(Name of theme)>(File Name; will be something like sms-received1.caf) Once you navigate there you should be able to simply save them to your computer.

    Hope that helps!

    ...actually that file path may also include another folder or two, but you get the idea.
