Windows 7 and 8 are built/based from Vista. Version 6.x.xxxx is Longhorn. Windows 7 has build number 6.1.7600. Windows 8 has 6.2.9200 :silly:

Custom Alert Tones for WP8 Registry Tweak!

Registry Tweak to enable custom alert tones for your Interop-Unlocked device!

Step 1: Make sure your intended alert tone is in your ringtones folder and your phone is unplugged from your computer (can be charging on wall charger but not plugged in to PC)

Step 2: Go to your registry editor and enter this value:
Code:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\EventSounds\Sounds\{Intended Alert Tone}]

Replace {Intended Alert Tone} with any of these values:
Code:
Achievement
Alarm
BatteryCharging
BusyCDMA
BusyTone
CallDrop
CallWaiting
Camera
CellBroadcast
Clock
CMAS
Congestion
CopyPaste
DownloadComplete

VoiceMail

Step 3: Key should be set to "Sound".

Step 4: Change the value of the files location to C:\Data\Users\Public\Ringtones\YourRingtoneName.mp3

Example:
Code:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\EventSounds\Sounds\SMS]
"Sound"="C:\Data\Users\Public\Ringtones\AppleSucks.mp3


That would set a ringtone named "AppleSucks" in your Ringtone folder as your SMS tone.

nothing there for shutter sound :( I know where the file is, but currently I cannot delete it, It would be much easier to remove the reg key, or alter it.

The WP7 registry tweaks might be useful http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=10491327 (There's also disable shutter tweak, but not sure if it'll work on WP8)

Ahh, thanks for that. Looks like the reg location is completely different. I will continue to look into it, perhaps there is a key to enable the option for disabling the sound (mine is locked by my rom) in which case I would need to match mine against someone else, otherwise a search function searching for keys (shutter.wav) may be useful.
