    After you have created the .caf file, SSH into your iPhone and go to this directory from the root of the iPhone

    /private/var/stash/Themes.****** (not sure if the six characters after the period are the same on every phone).

    Inside the Themes folder, create a new folder and name it whatever you want. I called mine SMS Sounds.

    Put your new SMS alert sound in there. They do need to be named sms-received1.caf sms-received2.caf sms-received3.caf, etc. After that, just choose the tone you wish to choose. TriTone being sms-received1 Chime being sms-received2, etc. That way, you can turn on that theme in Winterboard and not have to worry about backing up files, and if you ever want the original iPhone tones back for SMS, you can just turn off the theme.
    Hi! i found the method you suggested as simpler to implement so i tried it out.. and did as instructed but the sms tones are still the default. how do i know it worked? after i set the theme in winterboard, where do i go next? help please!

    Got it to work.. after you create a folder with the name that you want, create another folder UISounds inside it. This is where you will put the tones that you created. activate using winterboard.
