I figured out that in System/Media you can remove (or better to just rename) the bootsamaung.qmp and bootsamsungloop.qmp and if you like, the shutdown.qmp and it gets rid of the boot/shutdown animations. I haven't bothered to measure to see if it actually speeds up the boot process, but it feels like it did. Problem is, the boot audio is still there. I hate boot audio. But I can't find it! Does anyone know where I can find this darn audio file to remove it? Or a build.prop edit to remove it? Here's the build.prop edit I found (long ago, and it's all over the place so i don't know who to give credit to ) as another way to remove the boot animation: 1)Open a Root Explorer app or any file manager with root permissions. 2)Go to /system 3)Mount folder in R/W and open build.prop in text editor 4)Scroll to the very bottom and enter Code: debug.sf.nobootanimation=1 5)Save and Exit. A full reboot is required to see that this works. You can change =1 to =0 to disable this. Or simply delete the line that was added.
