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
2. UNZIP the "" file, put the audio file in your sdk/tools folder
3. leave the "" file zipped, put in your sdk/tools folder
4. go into adb and push both files as follows:


adb push /data/local
adb push android_audio.mp3 /data/local
adb reboot

This should work; if anyone has problems let me know.



If you're still having issues with the sound not working, first make sure that you are unzipping the "android_audio" file...then pushing the .mp3 contained within the zip file.

Second, if it still doesn't work, try this in adb:


cd data
cd local
rm android_audio.mp3

then repush the two files!

When I do:

adb push /data/local
adb push android_audio.mp3 /data/local

I get:

/sbin/sh: adb: not found

Now what?

I figured it out. Was trying to do this in Clockwork Mod recovery. Had to change to disk drive mode while the phone is running.

do we just need to delete these files to go back?
