    it shouldnt go just by rooting.
    ive noticed its to do with the device volume
    if you are on a stock rom with no change other than root, put the volume up on ringer before you shut down.
    you will notice its back when you boot

    The volume is always as high as it will go, or should I hold the volume up when I'm turning the phone off?

    One of teppic's mods is "restore bootsound", so you could install that ROM (which is pretty much stock, unless you choose to add the optional mods) and then use that mod to restore the sound.

    As the ROM is very close to stock it might work to just flash the mod, but I'd think it safer to install the ROM (you anyway want to do a nandroid backup before flashing anything). Also since we don't know why the boot sound has gone, I'd think that flashing the rom is more likely to actually work.

    You can find the ROM at http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=773997

    Oh heck, not sure if I'm confident enough to tackle something like flashing, took me enough time to root the phone and I was sweating gallons doing that, is there no way I can just copy the bootup tone to the phone and if I can where does it go?

    When you root the phone with unrevoked you are already flashing (in a way that is far more dangerous - relatively - than installing a custom ROM). Anyway, on any rooted stock ROM that restore bootsound mod should still work, and all it's doing is the manual steps for you automatically.

    (But yes, rooting a stock ROM alone will not remove the boot sound. It's more likely you installed the app that disables it by muting the volume at boot up.)
