    pre iOS 5 the alert tones for apps used to be bundled with the app and i would be able to go in and change the .caf file to something different other than the horrible default tone

    now i believe they have moved to another location. i have searched all of the system files for FB, G+, WWF etc. and no luck at all

    has anyone had any luck with this?

    In the Facebook folder, Facebook.app has a WAV called chord... I think that is the default tone...
    Is that why you are talking about??

    The apps are stored in the .app file structures OFF the iPhone. The .app file is actually a renamed .zip file. I have had some success opening the .app file, locating the alerts and other sounds there... even changed one of them and then reinstalled the app (dragging the file to itunes/my phone.

    I have also used this process to extract tones for conversion .m4a/.m4r format for use as ring tones and text tones.

    i saw that but is that the default tone? i am not sure because i normally turn the FB sound OFF since i was assuming it was still the dreaded Tri-tone sound

    i was kind of hoping it would be something as simple as using iFile like i have done in the past. i will look into this, thank you

    Have you tried looking in any of your saved backups on your computer?
