Help Xperia x10 boot sound

Hello everyone,

This is my first post. Hopefully someone can help. I'm still a newbie. Bought my first Android phone just over a year ago, (Xperia X10). Since than I've learned to root, installed JIT enabler, tried various boot animations, learned something about the file system using Root Explorer, have all kinds of paid, performance apps etc.. Quadrant score is "1528"

My problem after trying for 3 days is I can't seem to add a Boot/Startup sound. After the Gingerbread update. I only have a "beep, beep, beep" system sound. I've tried EVERYTHING... :thinking:

system/media/audio/ui/

/system/etc/

and more. What in the world am I missing here?

Thanx in advance.
Cheers!
 
How to Remove/Replace Startup/Shutdown sounds - Android @ MoDaCo

I don't know if anyone else is annoyed by the startup and shutdown sounds. For me, they are much too loud, and the best for me is not to have them at all.
So, to remove those two sounds I used silent .wav and .ogg files.

Using RootExplorer I copied:
PowerOn.wav to system/etc
Shutdown.ogg to system/media/audio/ui.

If you still like having some sounds during startup/shutdown, you could make your own files (.wav for startup and .ogg for shutdown) and copy them to the folders as above.

Maybe this is better:

How to add sound:

0. It's recommended to do a nandroid backup first!

1. Download the "bootsound.sh" file and put it on the root of your sd card.

2. Download the "android_audio.mp3" file and using root explorer copy it to /system/media

3. Open Terminal Emulator and type the following commands using the stock keyboard. Press enter after each line:
su
cd /sdcard
sh bootsound.sh
reboot

4. As the device boots up you will be greeted by the "Dolby THX" test sound heard before movies. You are now free to replace the android_audio.mp3 file in /system/media with any .mp3 file you like as long as you rename it to "android_audio.mp3"

5. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO OUTSMART THESE DIRECTIONS OR YOU WILL BE RESTORING YOUR NANDROID BACKUP!

6. Enjoy

Or Droid X Boot Animation Ported, Now with Sound | xda-developers

Hey guys. I know this is about and around, but we got the sound working on boot (the “DROID” noise). So here’s how you do it:
1. download both files below
UNZIP the “android_audio.zip” file, put the audio file in your sdk/tools folder
leave the “bootanimation.zip” file zipped, put in your sdk/tools folder
go into adb and push both files as follows:
adb push bootanimation.zip /data/local
adb push android_audio.mp3 /data/local
adb reboot
This should work; if anyone has problems let me know.
