Downloaded an SMS tone from Cydia turned it on in Winterboard and have no idea why it won't work. Any help is appreciated.

is it above your 'current' theme? Screen shot would be good

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
Beer Battery 1 CHECKED
Mail Motherfkr SMS Tone CHECKED (this is the SMS Tone)
State of South Carolina
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!!

AH HA! It replaced the Chime SMS tone. Thanks for all your help!

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.
