[HowTo] Remove boot sound from HTC Desire (rooted)
If, like me, you strongly dislike the HTC "Quietly brilliant" boot sound, here's how to disable it entirely:
- Put your phone into recovery
- Get a working adb shell
Move the sounds out of the way
mv /system/customize/resource/android_audio.mp3 /system/customize/resource/android_audio.mp3.nothanks
mv /system/media/android_audio.mp3 /system/media/android_audio.mp3.nothanks
I didn't really want to install an application to do "silent" the boot up, and was actually worried about the case (by Murphys law) that I drop my phone, the battery comes out, I insert it (forgetting it wasn't on silent) and the boot sound causes my death.
I Google'd for quite a while with no luck, but sorry if this has been posted somewhere. I especially didn't want to change ROMs just to remove the sound. I also noticed that in both locations, bootanimation.zip existed which contains the frame-by-frame sequence for the boot up screen.
