Me too... more the At&t sound....f-ing hate that sound. Low tech is to mute your phone or I was reading about https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...web.silentboot Silent Boot in the play store, but haven't installed it yet.... would like it to be a setting or module. The camera click sound isn't gone either (so annoying).

I don't like using apps like silent boot... instead, go to the source of the annoyance.

The boot sound is /system/media/audio/ui/PowerOn.ogg. Don't know what will happen on this phone, but on my LGOG, you could just remove the boot sound file altogether (I renamed mine) and have a nice silent boot. What I would actually do here for safety is make a backup copy of it, then put in its place a new PowerOn.ogg that I created myself that is half a second of silence. Just in case something really doesn't like the file to be missing altogether.

Of course, you have to be root to do this; get a shell (using terminal, adb, run an ssh daemon or whatever), and remount /system read-write before you will be able to write there.

as @jdock said, it is the poweron.ogg file. you can indeed get rid of this file or make your own without any negative effect to your gs5. i made my own and replaced it (need root) and set permissions to what most the other files in that location are.

what i would like to do is change the bootanimation so that it only does the samsung one and the bright white at&t one doesnt pop on. i have found that the samsung and at&t one are all one boot animation. so i'd have to edit the qmg file and take out the at&t pics. still trying to find out how to edit a qmg. the bootsamsungloop.qmg file is the at&t logo only file. i've moved those loop.qmg files out of the media folder but the bootsamsung.qmg STILL plays the at&t animation for some reason. the at&t animation has to be a part of the bootsamsung.qmg.

edit: the bootsamsungmini.qmg is the samsung only animation but the pics are not right. the samsung logo is not stretched out enough.

I was able to turn off the sound by adding ".disabled" to the end of the poweron.ogg.. So mine now reads PowerOn.ogg.disabled

And it works for me

SWEET I got The Doctor LOL I used ROM Toolbox Pro to update my boot animation, but it's really tiny.

I should search out an animated Tardis LOL
