Default Music on start up

I have Verizon as a carrier and when I turn the phone on I get annoying startup music. I have tried everything to turn it off. Any ideas? I know if I silience all sounds I wont hear it but I dont want that. I just want to disable the music when I turn the phone on. Thanks!

You would need to root the phone to get rid of that.

There are some apps out there which disable the startup sound but I can't say if they work on the gs4

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.antweb.silentboot

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.smojon.startupsound

If the apps don't work the only thing I can think of is to root and remove the startup sound (PowerOn.ogg) from /system/media/audio/ui
