    Anyone know how to remove the boot animation "droid" sound. I have deleted the android_audio.mp3 from /system/media as this was the only place I could find it. Rebooted and I still get the "droid". this is with the leaked OTA update.

    +1. I find it "Incredibly" annoying that phone manufacturers/carriers think it makes even a modicum of sense to have your phone make a loud noise upon startup.

    Your phone makes noise when it boots? My Incredible never made a sound on boot. Not until I loaded my own boot audio.

    Can someone verify im not crazy. With the 2.2 leak i pushed bootanimation.zip to /data/local and it doesn't change the boot animation.

    The boot animation sequence moved to /system/customize/resource/

    The animation is now named VZW_bootanimation.zip and the audio is VZW_Droid.zip. Since the /system partition is read only, the best way to access it is while in Clockwork Recovery.

    Does this mean it gets a lot harder to do custom boot animations when Froyo rolls out for us (assuming the real release stays the same)?

    I don't know. There may be an alternate location for custom animations that are accessible without root, but I don't know of it. I've been studying the leaked OTA and 2.2 rom files to see if I can figure out what each is doing (I'd rather not have to rely on the wonderful people here on the forums too much):D. The change actually happened with the leaked OTA, not the leaked 2.2.

    Found that mofo....

    Just rename (or delete) /system/customize/resource/VZW_Droid.mp3 to something else

    Mount /system in clockworkmod, then using adb shell:
    Code (Text):
    1.  
    2. cd /system/customize/resource
    3. mv VZW_Droid.mp3 VZW_Droid.mp3.old
    4. exit
    5.  
    reboot and no more boot sound. Stupid Verizon.
