Default Media scanning on startup

Ok, can anyone tell me how to disable the media scan that runs on startup? It locks up my phone for a minute or so, when I first boot up and since I seem to flash something every few days or so, it is getting pretty annoying, especially since I don't have any media on my phone

you can disable media scan...but it causes more problems than it solves...ie you cant access music, pictures, etc

And I am guessing that it runs twice on bootup because I have my sdcard partitioned?

Thanks... I guess I would rather deal with known issues than the unknown... any thoughts on my other list about the "keytracer" I found in my settings? Is it legitimate?

Don't turn your phone off as much?

Use .nomedia files (empty) to exclude folders from the scan. I actually do this for music: since the scanner mangles non-mp3 tags, I just use MortPlayer (navigates by folder).
