    i've done something to remove the sound for notifications and games (probably others, too). probably with the new tweaks, hehe... my ipod sounds remain unaffected, though... i can't retrace what i did :(

    how can i get them back?

    thanks for any advice.

    Did you try closing all open programs and a reboot?

    Open a game that isn't playing sound and press volume up button. Games have different volume control then music.

    Try this:
    Go to Settings / General / "Use Side Switch to:" Select "Mute" Then use the rocker switch on the side to turn up the sound. Once you have restored the sound, go back to Settings / General / "Use Side Switch to:" and change back to "Lock Rotation".

    If that doesn't work, try re-syncing the iPad and see if that helps.

    nothing's changed with the sounds for alerts and games, even after trying out the suggestions. and i can't sync with my computer via itunes, my os is very old hehe...

    i've listed below the tweaks (great ones, btw) i used... the loss came about when i started 'tweaking'...

    ... and those comments aren't mine lol.

    -------------------------


    FREE

    Action Menu - enhance the copy & paste functionality for IOS including
    pasteboard favourites

    Activator - assign screen gestures and button press combinations to do
    a multitude of actions, from launching apps to controlling the iPod
    application.

    xxxAuto Location - Turns the GPS on your iPad on whenever an app requests
    location services and off again when it is closed.

    Barrel - 3D page transitions with lots of effects to choose from (via OUTL4W)
    xxxBlack Keyboard - does exactly what it says on the tin. Turns you iPad
    keyboard every h4x0r5 favourite colour, BL4

    xxxBolt - gets rid of the battery icon in your status bar, except when
    charging, in which case you will see a bolt! Turn on battery
    percentage for maximum usefulness, otherwise you won't know how much
    charge you have!

    Bytafont - Apple did a great job of the IOS fonts, but everyone likes
    a change now and again. Hundreds of BytaFont compatible fonts are
    available on Cydia - My personal favourite? -

    MakeItMine---- since ChangeCarrier didn't work ------ Change the carrier name shown on your iPad to a custom
    string. So much fun to personalize your iPad! (via Mickey330)

    xxxFakeClockUp - This tweak allows you to change the default animation
    speed of IOS graphics. Amazingly, when you increase the animation
    speed the whole iPad SEEMS to perform much faster. It's all an
    illusion, BUT IT WORKS! Try it out... You'll be amazed... For added
    fun, try slowing things down. Slow-motion IOS is very weird indeed! -
    you will need to add the moyashi repo to Cydia to find this tweak -
    http://hitoriblog.com/apt/

    xxxFastCopy - There is a tiny delay built into IOS before the copy /
    paste popup appears. This tweak removes it...

    xxxManualCorrect - Do you hate Apple's spelling auto-correction as much
    as I do? This tweak turns it on it's head. No longer is the suggestion
    automatically substituted as you type. If the correction is what you
    want, you tap it. Puts you back in control!

    xxxMultiIconMover - Rearrange your icons a lot? This will help. You can
    "tag" multiple icons to move at once. Tap on each one as they wiggle
    and it gets "ticked". Then press the home button to move all the
    tagged icons to the current location, including into a folder!
    Coolness

    xxxNoLockScreen - Sick and tired of sliding to unlock? This tweak removes
    the lock screen altogether, as long as you don't have a passcode set.

    xxxNo Not Charging - Yes, we know when the iPad is plugged in to a USB
    socket it is normally "Not Charging" (or charging really really
    slowly). This tweak gets rid of the text telling you this fact in the
    status bar...

    xxxOpenNotifier - Customizable status bar notifier so you don't have to
    remember what annoying pop-up you just dismissed! (via Mickey330)

    xxxOpenSSH - Every hackers friend. OpenSSH does exactly that. Provides a
    SSH interface to your iPad so that you can easily manage files on the
    filesystem from any one of a zillion SSH / FTP clients. Don't forget
    to change your root password from "alpine" otherwise I'll be hacking
    you later

    xxxPullToRefresh for Mail - Pull to refresh is one of the best touch user
    interface ideas EVA! This tweak adds it to the iPad mail application,
    allowing you to pull the message list down to refresh all your mail
    accounts.

    xxxQuickLock 2 - Tap it and the screen locks! (via Mickey330)

    xxxRemoveBackground - Paranoid about all those apps running in the
    background in Apples multitasking environment? Remove background kills
    them all in one fell swoop. Adds a nice SBSettings toggle to make it
    double easy too!

    xxxReset Safari for SBSettings - Provides a SBSettings Toggle to clear
    the cache, remove history, and delete cookies in Safari (via
    Mickey330)

    xxxSafari Tab Closer - Quickly close all open tabs in Mobile Safari (via Mickey330)

    SBSettings - Prime candidate for THE untimate Cydia tweak. Swipe the
    status bar and toggle on and off your iPad settings such as wifi,
    bluetooth, etc. to your hearts content. Cydia also has lots of addon
    tweaks and many applications install their own! Uber-Cool.

    xxxSplitMail - Changes the portrait view of the Mail app to look like the
    landscape view with the sidebar always visible (via pcmarcel)

    WinterBoard - The jailbreakers theme manger. Fancy a change of scenery
    from good old stock IOS? Winterboard allows you to apply a miriad of
    themes and treaks to the look and feel of IOS. Just make sure the ones
    you download are for the iPad! OK?


    PAID

    xxx(paid)Auto3G - Automatically turns off 3G when the device is locked, thus
    saving precious battery cycles. Re-enables when iPad is unlocked -
    obviously only for devices with 3G! (via

    xxxColor Mail Labels - Gives each email account its own color within
    Mail, especiallay handy in the "All Mailboxes" view! (via Mickey330)

    xxxDisplay Recorder - Ever fancied making a video demo from your iPad?
    This is the way to do it (via OUTL4W)

    xxxInspell - An alternative and configuratble spellcheck and autocorrect
    system with access to dozens of dictionaries using Hunspell (via
    Mickey330)

    xxxLocktopus - Password protect one, some, or all of your apps directly
    from the springboard (via Mickey330)

    xxx(paid)Photoalbums+ for iPad - create folders within the native photos app,
    and optionally password protext them, without iTunes sync (via OUTL4W)

    xxx(paid)PkgBackup - Backup and restore a complete list of your Cydia Apps,
    settings, repositories, and more. Every jailbreakers favourite friend.
    You'll never have to start afresh, unless you want to, ever again.

    xxxScreenDimmer - Want more control over your screen backlight? This is
    the app for you. Dim the screen after a number of seconds and turn the
    backlight off after that... Great for battery life!

    xxx(paid)3GUnrestrictor - Tired of apps that tell you you can't use them of
    download something because you are not connected to WiFi? 3GU fools
    them into thinking you are. No more blocky YouTube videos!

    xxx(paid)5-Row Keyboard for iPad - Want a row of numbers or symbols above the
    keyboard, just like any laptop or desktop? This is how we do it, in
    conjunction with WinterBoard of course! - install free "Keyboard Fixer
    for iOS 4.3+" to enable compatibility with 4.3.x

    WiFi Booster - Removes the internal signal strength limit from the
    WiFi Settings pane to allow you to see all the networks broadcasting.

    got it! there a "mute/play" toggle button that can't be accessed anywhere but by double-clicking the home button and swiping to the right (at the bottom, see attachment)... i don't remember setting it to mute, lol!

    thanks so much for your suggestions, kind people...

    the whole world has started turning again :)

    Hmmm... I thought we had covered that. Glad to hear that it's resolved though without having to go any further. :)
