Zeldigo™-The Legend of Zelda Audio Mod for Swordigo

INTRODUCTION
Right off the bat, I want to assure people something that always seems to be the breaking point for mods, in that thankfully, NO JAILBREAK IS NECESSARY for this mod, so if you are like me and don't have a jailbroken device, do not worry. Now onto the mod. This mod changes almost every audio track in Swordigo (by Touch FOO) to match the corresponding track from the Legend of Zelda games, more specifically Ocarina of Time. Everything from the background music, to the sound of collecting rupees, even to the sound of the player's footsteps, has been changed. Seeing how closely Swordigo resebles the LOZ games, I figured it would be neat to see what the game would be like with LOZ audio. "Zeldigo" (as I'm calling it) is the result, and it turned out even better than I expected. The nice thing about this mod is that since it is only changing audio, you don't feel like you didn't play the game the way it was supposed to be played, it only feels like an enhancement to the experience. Additionally, it means you won't experience any mod-related glitches or other side effects found in some other mods. I want to let you know though, that since there are not that many background tracks in this game (only 4 to be exact), I had to compromise on which tracks from LOZ would best match all the environments they are linked to in Swordigo. For example, in the beginning, I wanted the music that plays from Kokiri Village from the beginning of LOZ:OoT to play as you walk out of your house and explore the first village. However, this is the same track used throughout almost all outdoor environments, so instead I used the music from when you are in Hyrule Fields. Having played a lot of LOZ: OoT, I think I did a great job matching up the tracks and all the sound effects, and I guarantee you won't be disappointed.

INSTALLATION
1. First, click here to download the Zeldigo audio files
2. Extract the zipped files somewhere on your computer where you will remember
3. Open iExplorer or a similar program and find the folder for Swordigo, titled something like "com.touchfoo.swordigo". If you don't already have iExplorer, download it here
4. In the Swordigo directory, open the folder "Swordigo.app", and then "Content"
5. Drag the extracted Zeldigo audio files into this folder, and click OK on all the popups verifying that you want to replace the original files
NOTE: If you ever want to go back to Swordigo's original audio, backup this folder on your computer, or if all else fails re-install the app and get your saves back from iCloud. But this mod is so awesome, I doubt you'll want to go back anyways XD
6. That's it! Fire up Swordigo and reminisce your nostalgic Legend of Zelda memories all over again!

HOPE YOU ENJOYED THIS MOD, LET ME KNOW IF YOU ENCOUNTER ANY PROBLEMS OR IF YOU HAVE ANY SUGGESTIONS

EDIT 6/17/13:
Sorry, but changes to iOS have removed the ability to change files like this without jailbreaking. Shame. Apologies for updating this post so late, the change has been made for a long time now.

Oh yeah and I forgot to add this, but I just want to say that I do not claim ownership to the Legend of Zelda soundtrack, game, logo, etc. or the Nintendo brand. Insert more legal stuff here.

Glad to hear that it's working alright! I was worried that something might get messed up in the process of compression and uploading to 4shared, but it's great that it's working fine.

Would love to do this but I am totally not tech savvy. Do I download it on the computer that has iTunes on it? Please be patient with me

Yes on computer, no on iTunes. All you need is a computer application that allows you to view and edit the iPhone file system. The OP suggests iExplorer; I use PhoneView, which I find more user friendly (though it's not free). Basically, you connect the device to the computer, startup iExplorer, and follow the instructions in the OP.
