Can anyone help?

Thanks in advance!

(do I need to convert the mp3 to an OGG file?)

I'm pretty sure it takes an mp3 file? Just put your mp3 file at /system/media/ and name it "boot_audio.mp3"

The instructions are repeated under Rom Control > General UI (they're greyed out under "disable call volume")

Ahhhhh I made a folder boot_audio.mp3, lol. Now the only system/media folder I have is in the ROM zip itself. Is that the one I put it in and reflash?

or just put the file itself into that folder in the phone. adb, root explorer, or any other root access file explorer.

Well I thought I had it but when I was checking my failed work I noticed that my" boot_audio.mp3" is now a " boot_audio.mp3.ogg". I used Ghost Commander to move the file.

Just to clarify it isn't or is the system/media from the ROMs zip itself?

Thanks again, this battle is now a personal challenge, lol.

Ok, this is what you do.

1. Find an mp3 file you like (MP3 file, not an Ogg Vorbis file)
2. Name it "boot_audio.mp3" (case-sensitive)
3. Copy it into /system/media/ on your actual phone (NOT in the ROM zip unless you want to have to reflash your zip)
4. Change the permissions of the file to rw-r--r--.
5. Go to Settings > ROM Control > General UI and make sure that "Disable Boot Audio" is UNCHECKED
6. Reboot.

marked in red is only in AOKP. So unless you know that the user is running AOKP, this is unnecessary

Just an FYI post.

Is there a way to increase the volume of the boot_audio.mp3? Mine is playing ridiculously low for some reason.
