    No idea how to take a screenshot- I can't sync my phone to my iTunes yet due to technical problems with the jailbreaking. But it is listed as-
    Phila PhilliesE&3g CHECKED
    Philadelphia Phillies
    Beer Battery 1 CHECKED
    PhilliesSlider CHECKED
    Mail Motherfkr SMS Tone CHECKED (this is the SMS Tone)
    State of South Carolina
    User Wallpaper
    User Lock Background
    Transparent Dock CHECKED
    Solid Status Bar
    ... The rest are the normal Winterboard options.

    To take a screenshot hold the Home & Power button together at the same time - you'll hear a photo being taken and the screenshot will appear in your Camera Roll.

    To move you SMS tone up to the top of the list press the 3 bars on the right in Winterboard and just drag it up. WB always works from the top down, so anything you've got loaded always takes priority of what's below it.

    Hope this helps.

    Try unchecking everything other than your SMS tone and see if that works..... it may be a bad download.

    Another thought is that you may have to "enable" it under settings if it replaces a standard SMS tone, try changing each SMS tone under settings and see what sound you hear.

    In the meantime I'll do a search on Cydia for it, I may actually like it too!!

    Oops! Didn't really follow my own advice after all as I couldn't get it to work initially! Doh!!!

    Glad it's all sorted though.
