Default Boot Animation and Audio Removable?

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.

Try this;

go to /system/media/audio/ui.

Rename (or delete) these two files (the second file is obviously the shutdown sound, you may or may not have one)
PowerOn.ogg
PowerOff.ogg

I want to thank you again because it returned after my update to 4.3, and I forgot about our little conversation here until I did a search.

Thanks!
