The BBM app for iPhone has been updated with a simplified flow for attaching pictures, files and other content to BBM chats, upgrade notifications, and more.
BBM brings you together in the moment with friends and family through instant chats, voice calls, picture sharing, voice notes and more.

Chat with friends on iPhone and other smartphones:
• BBM is always on and always connected – no app to open
• Know when messages have been delivered (D’s) and read (R’s)
• Say ‘hello’ with BBM Voice – free voice calling between BBM Contacts
• Quickly share photos, files, documents, voice notes and more
• Allow contacts to view your location live on a map, powered by Glympse
• See when contacts are responding to your message
• Emoticons for every mood and emotion let you express yourself

BBM lets you protect your privacy. You control it:
• You chose how to share your information – BBM uses PINs instead of phone numbers or email addresses so that it’s more private, and you always control who can contact you
• You chose your contacts – 2-way opt-in means you have control over who is able to message you

Chat and Share with many at once:
• Groups – BBM groups help you share pictures, lists, and appointments with group members. You can even be in a group with people who aren’t part of your own BBM contact list.
• Multi-person chats – Invite multiple contacts to have a chat together.
• Broadcast messages – Send a message to multiple BBM contacts at one time.

BBM Channels: Join conversations happening now about the things you love.
• Create a new channel to share your thoughts, ideas and passions.
• Subscribe to an existing BBM channel to join chats with others who share your interests.

Create your own BBM profile:
• Post a profile picture using images, pictures or even animated pictures (GIFs).
• Update your status to let people know what you’re up to or how you feel

What’s New In This Version:
– Simplified flow for attaching pictures, files and other content to BBM chats
– In app upgrade notifications helps users to download the latest version of BBM
– The ability for users to rate their call experience for BBM Voice calls
– Addresses a bug where users would receive repeated notifications for messages they’ve previously viewed

You can download BBM from the App Store for free.

These are instructions on how to set a custom SMS alert tone which will sound when your iPhone receives a text message.

To follow this tutorial you will need to have jailbroken your iPhone and installed OpenSSH. You can find instructions on how to jailbreak here and instructions on how to install OpenSSH here. Don’t forget to change your password!

Lets begin…

Step One
Locate a sound clip you would like to use as your SMS alert tone and drag it into your iTunes Music Library.

Step Two
Select Preferences from the iTunes Menu.

Step Three
Click the Import Settings button in the General Preferences Tab.

Step Four
Choose Import Using AIFF Encoder from the Import Settings popup window.

Step Five
Close the Preference windows and then Control+Click on the sound file you just added to iTunes. Select Create AIFF Version from the contextual menu.

Step Six
Notice a duplicate copy of your tone will appear in the iTunes Music Library. Drag this duplicate to your desktop.

Step Seven
The iPhone has slots for six incoming sms tones. They are named sms-received1.caf through sms-received6.caf. Select the file you just created on the desktop and rename it to one of these six possible filenames. For example, my tone was siren.aif and I renamed it to sms-received6.caf so it would occupy the sixth slot.

You may be asked to confirm the extension change. Click the use .caf button.

Step Eight
Launch Fugu from your applications folder.

Step Nine
When Fugu opens you will be asked for the information required to SSH into your iPhone. In the Connect To field enter your iPhone’s IP Address. Input root as the Username then click the Connect button. If you do not know your iPhone’s IP Address you can find it using these instructions.

Step Ten
When prompted for a password, input the password you set for OpenSSH. If you haven’t set your own password then alpine is the default. Click the Authenticate button to continue.

Step Eleven
Click the Go To… icon on your toolbar.

Step Twelve
Input /System/Library/Audio/UISounds/ into the Go To field, make sure Remotely is selected, then click the Go button.

Step Thirteen
Locate the sms-received file you would like to replace in the right window pane. In this example I want to replace sms-received6.caf with my own sound file.

Right click or control+click the existing file and select Rename from its contextual menu.

Rename the file to something like this: sms-received6.caf.bak.

Step Fourteen
Navigate to the desktop using the left window pane and locate the .caf file we just created. Drag this file from the left pane into the right to copy it to your iPhone.

Step Fifteen
Now reboot your iPhone to let the changes take effect then launch Settings from the Springboard.

Step Sixteen
Press to select Sounds from the Settings menu.

Step Seventeen
Select New Text Message from the Sounds menu.

Step Eighteen
Now you can select your customized SMS alert tone from the list. Notice the names haven’t changed. The top selection is actually sms-received1.caf and the bottom is sms-received6.caf. So if you copied over a new sms-received6.caf you would select Electronic from the list.
