    Hey all. Wondering why a boot sound zip isn't working. What I mean is that when I flash in recovery, the zip pushes the mp3 to system/media but the sound doesn't play. I've even extracted the file manually and manually pushed it in adb and manually placed it there using root explorer. Any ideas. Btw...when I flashed it when I was using CWM recovery and it played. Just started using drells recovery again and don't want to revert back to CWM to get this to work. Also, when I push/place any other ogg or mp3 the sound doesn't play either. Thanks for your help in advance.

    Edit: here is a copy of the description of the boot animation and it accompanying ogg file, this is the other boot animation with sound I'm having problems with. The other was the zip I flashed which put an mp3 in system media. In this case I extracted the ogg file and bootanimation.zip file and placed both files in system media. Here it is:

    # 540 wide, 960 tall 15 frames per second

    540 960 15

    # p means we're defining a part

    # first number is repeat count, 0 means infinite

    # second number is delay in frames before performing the next part

    # so if you are playing 15 frames a second 15 would be... one second

    # string defines the directory to load files from

    # files will be loaded in order but names don't matter

    # s defines a sound for a part

    # sounds will be loaded from /system/media

    # oggs with loop points will loop automatically

    # only one sound will play at a time

    # timing is driven by the part, not the sounds

    # if you want no sound, leave blank

    # droid
    p 1 7 01_droid

    # mobility
    p 1 0 02_mobility
    s Bionic.ogg

    # loop
    p 0 0 03_loop


    Any ideas?

    What rom are you running right now? That'll depend on where you need to place the .mp3. Whatever the case, place it where the original one was located and remove the original. Also, be sure to name it exactly what the previous sound was called.

    Did you rename the sound android_audio.mp3?

    Still no dice iowa. Wonder why?

    Doesn't work as an ogg file either, which is the actual file type. I copied the description (OP) on the boot animation and sound and I feel like I did it right.

    I didn't realize an ogg would work at all. Always thought they had to be .mp3 files. Anyhow, check this out for grins:

    So this is still not working. At this point I will just wait it out until I do a full wipe to a different nightly or a different Gingerbread ROM. BOO. I wonder why it won't work. When I try to turn the boot sound on, terminal tells me that boot sounds are already enable. But no sound plays during a boot.
