    Does anyone know how to at a minimum dilence the boot audio so it won't will boot silently? Can't boot or reboot in a meeting or area that needs silence.

    As Oregon2 stated, here is a recap info I posted over in that thread:
    This requires that you Root the phone to be able to edit/replace the file.
    Rooting and unrooting this phone is pretty easy. You can find info on it in the "All things Root" section of this forum.
    ____________________________________________________________
    I renamed the .mp3 sound file and the phone still booted....but it took forever.
    I assume it spent much of the time looking for the file.

    FYI, this file is located in /system/media/audio/boot/ and is called "wakeup.mp3".

    I replaced the wakeup.mp3 file with a 1 second file of silence and the boot audio is now gone. Boots just fine.

    I realize this is a crude method of removing it, but it was also damn easy.
    Boot time is unchanged.

    Here is the replacement "silent" audio file I made and used:
    http://members.cox.net/friesen2/Commando/wakeup.mp3
    Right click the link from your browser and "Save Target as" on your PC. Then you can move it to SD and use a file manager to replace the existing file. I renamed the old file as "wakeup.3pm".

    I use a File Manager from the Market called "Root Explorer".

    _____________________________________________________________
    As to the video animation, I am reluctant to rename it as it looks like an executable file. That could brick the phone.

    Anyone know what type of file this is?
    It is located in /system/bin/ and is called "bootanimation".

    thanks for the blank .mp3 lol i was just about to make one when i found this....

    i don't suppose anyone's made progress on deciphering exactly what type of file this "bootanimation" is? i just saw it was an executable...

    if you extract the file, you get 5 seperate files, numbered 0-4

    file 1 for example just says:

    /system/bin/linker

    file 3 has lots of references to non-existant files such as:

    images/nec_gz_animation_loading_1.png

    i'm going to keep messing around with this, but i have an odd issue with droid explorer that is really slowing me down....

    the device only shows up if i un-root using superoneclick, although the sdcard shows up fine with i plug it in... i used the same drivers with bootstrap everyone else is using...

    i wish there was a way to jump right to the program, instread of that "select a device" screen.....
