Default How to change the startup sound and image

This is taken mostly from a thread showing how to change the startup sound and image on the LG Optimus. http://androidforums.com/lg-optimus-m/228290-metropcs-hello-hello-goodbye.html

I did this on my MetroPCS Ascend. I assume Cricket would be the same if not very similar.

1. Download and install Root Explorer (must be rooted of course.)

2. Find a compatible animation (I used http://www.vopinc.com/files/Android/GDbootanimation.zip) which will be renamed "bootanimation.zip" and an ogg sound file (I used http://www.moviesoundclips.net/tv1/tng/braincells.ogg)which will be renamed "bootStrapSound.ogg".

3. Navigate to /system/media directory using Root Explorer and copy the animation over the default file (save the default somewhere if you wish)

4. Navigate to /system/media/audio/ui directory and copy your sound file over the default file (again, save the default if you wish).

I've tested this myself and it works like a charm. No more annoying MetroPCS logo and sound.

It's the fourth one down. That's just my example though, it looks like you can use any sound clip you want.

Problem is, I can't get root explorer, and I don't know of any free ones that work...

Any suggestions... please?


EDIT: Nevermind, I got AndRootFile, worked GREAT!
Now to find nice .ogg files...

This is the download that I used - http://androotfile.googlecode.com/files/AndRootFile_2.0_signed.apk

I copied the link and E-Mailed it to myself - I opened the E-Mail using the Dolphin Mini Browser and downloaded it! See if it works for you.

I found the video to be slightly different than how it worked for me but it was easy to figure out - I hit preview then download and then it installs.

For some fun animations try the animations boot installer either from the market or the other threads vid link.
I'm running dancing bananna with the robot droid sound. The app has a bunch of available animations and will d/l and install them for you in three taps total.
Now to find one to change my .oog on demand. Maybe even auto change so it's always different.
You listening, developers?

cricket shouldnt have anything to do with it... you have to make sure read/write is on... the little pencil on the bottom, before pasting the file. if there isnt one there, there will be no sound on start up

That's why it helps to look around before posting a question, someone may have already solved it.
I managed to root, delete bloatware, figure out my overclock limits, change boot ani and sound and learn androot all before I even made my first post.
all I did was spend a little time reading before I did ANYTHING and I had no problems... Till I deleted gtalkservice.apk and had to figure it out.
As it turns out someone else had the same problem early on. I found it only after my pleas for help went unanswered.
Now theres like ten threads on changing this sound and they all say the same thing.
Seriously folks, there is a "search" option for a reason,use it.

Sorry about the rant but it's been bugging me.

Did this ever get resolved? I am on cricket, and I am having the same problem, I can not get it to make any boot sound, and I was able to move the sound file to the correct folder, and it is named properly and is case sensitive.....

boot sound DROID, http://www.mediafire.com/?3342modz58nz0wb

1. Find and download the sound that you want to use (bootStrapSound.ogg).
2. Now with root explorer, place the bootStrapSound.ogg in "/system/media/audio/ui".
3. Now you need to edit the build.prop file located in "/system".
4. In root explorer, mark the system directory "R/W" and open build.prop in text editor.
5. At the very bottom of build.prop, add the following lines:

ro.config.hw_isninecell=true
ro.config.hw_bootSoundValue=3.0
ro.config.hw_hasbootsound=true

6. Save the file and reboot your phone, you should now hear your custom boot sound.

i see a lot about downloading boot animations but what about creating my own??
tried to modify the cm7 boot animation but I can't seem to get it to display. Does anyone know how to make it "compatible"?? i just added my own animation to the cm7 .png files and made a new bootanimation.zip. used root explorer but it just will not play. file names, dimensions, and format all the same (very close in file sizes). what am i doing wrong?

any help would be greatly appreciated

and when you say it won't work on cm7...are you talking about the sound or the animation?

trying to look around for answers...I see a bootloader vid that nuttmeg posted...I see something about unpacking boot.img but not sure if either one of those is what i need...

look for my thread for bootsound for cm7, also everything is put together and also there is a txt file in there that shows you where to put things.

Default 2.2 upgrade requires "bootanimation.zip" to go...

Thanks for the info Fastbreak, after steering me in the right direction I had to figure something out myself:
After I upgraded to 2.2 (Metro PCS) the "bootanimation.zip" needs to go into the following location, I used root explorer.
cust/metropcs/us/media
The sound file goes to the same place.
Now I have a cool startup sequence, thanks 2 U.

I'm still having trouble. I did exactly what was said above and I still don't hear my new startup/bootup sound nor do I see the new images.

I keep getting the message "Can't write to file: /system/media/audio/ui/bootstrapsound.ogg"

Any suggestions?

It sounds like you're using ROOT EXPLORER.

If you haven't done so already,toggle the button at the top of the page that says "MOUNT R/W" until it says "MOUNTED AS R/W" just to the left of the button.

Then,you can start moving your files to the desired location.

Keep us posted w/your results.

I appreciate the help but I've done that also. No methods have worked. I use ROOT EXPLORER and X-PLORE as well. Still open to any suggestions. I am new at this so feel free to go into great detail if you must. Thank you.
