You might have been an iPhone user for a long time by now, what never changed on the iPhone are the user interface sounds.
For example, let’s take the default shutter sound, that sound you hear when you take a picture it sounds quite digital doesn’t it?
I was so fed up with it that I searched for a way to change it. As my iPhone is jailbroken, but no Cydia is installed, I had to change it from within the device instead of finding an Application that does so. A few minutes later I figured out how to do so.

It’s not that hard, and we got sounds for you to use!

First, you need a jailbroken iDevice with root access through ssh or any method you prefer. This tutorial shows you how to change the default camera shutter sound.

  • At root, go to file://System/Library/Audio/UISounds/
  • Search for a file called photoShutter.caf
  • Replace this file with the ones below (PS-files) or make your own. Make sure the sample you use starts immediately, otherwise you’ll end up with a delay between the time you press the shutter button and the actual shutter sound. If you cannot replace the sound file because it’s “in use”, close all your applications on your iDevice and reboot it, then try again.
  • Reboot your iDevice. Done.

Here are some samples to get you started!
