Another user asked for this, and I helped him through it, so I decided to post it here so everyone can have access to it. I didn't create the file, just came across it one day being bored..I digress.

*NOTE: Anything in brackets is either description of what is happening or an action you need to perform; don't type in anything in brackets*

What you need to do to get a boot sound on CM7/AOSP is the following.

1. http://dl.dropbox.com/u/19699565/bootsnd.sh Apparently some people had issues with the first link, so I uploaded it again. Download that file, place on your sdcard.

2. Take whatever sound you want and rename it to: android_audio.mp3 [needs to be mp3 format] and then place in your adb tools folder.

3. On your phone, open terminal emulator, and type in the following:

su [enter]
cd /sdcard [enter]
ls [to list all files, you should see bootsnd.sh]
sh bootsnd.sh [enter]

You won't see a confirmation, or message, it just runs, and returns you to a # sign.

From your computer, adb push the android_audio.mp3 to the /system/media folder, reboot, and you'll have a sound.

If you don't like / know how to use adb, using root explorer and placing the android_audio.mp3 in the system/media folder works just as well. Reboot, and enjoy your boot sound.

*NOTE*

If you flash / change roms, you'll have to re-run the process to enable the boot sound again. If you get tired of it / don't want it, you can use root explorer and delete the file.

Alternate method:

For those that don't like using the terminal emulator, you can do it via adb:

navigate to your adb folder via commanda prompt, then issue the following commands:

adb remount
adb shell
cd /sdcard
ls [will list files, you should see bootsnd.sh]
sh bootsnd.sh

Like in the emulator, you will be returned with a # sign. Then place the audio file in the folder I specified. Just decided like posting an alt method. Enjoy.

@teh roxxorz: Thanks a lot man. I had to search a longtime to find this. You're the man. Seems like CM7.02.1 doesn't have that bootsnd.sh file embedded. Maybe the latest stable has it. If I wasn't new to the forum I'd know how to hit you with a "Thank You"...
