    This is how to did able the boot animation audio on the Kyocera Rise.
    Need:
    Root File Manager

    Instructions:
    1. Grant SuperUser permission to what ever file manager that has a root option e.g. root browser
    2. Got to /system/media/audio/boot
    3. Delete the files in there.
    4. Reboot

    Sounds simple enough. I found the offending noise in /system/media/audio/boot, renamed it to *.bak

    Rebooting...

    It's silent! Horray!

    (I think I may change a friend's to a really loud fart noise now)

    I tried changing the sound and changed ".mp3" to ".ogg" like it is in the other folders but failed. If you get it working pm me how it goes and instructions on how you did it :p

    The boot animation apparently won't take a renamed file of another format, has to be .mp3 if it's an mp3. It might work if you left it as .ogg and it might work with other filenames, but I didn't test that.

    What I did do was put n mp3 in there and renamed it to have the same name as the original. It worked, loudly.

    I attached the actual file I tested it with, you'll have to unzip it first of course. The sound I wanted I couldn't find in mp3 so this one was a second choice. (I wanted the Homer "something something" sound)

    oh and of course put it back where it was after unmounted from pc

    Disable the boot animation entirely by adding this to your build.prop

    I already disabled the boot sound so I'm assuming it will stop that as well.

    has anyone tried it with ES File Explorer?

    Root Explorer only has a paid version.

    You could also do this with the camera sound. Look in /system/media/ui. Any file that has the name camera (2 files) delete.

    I tried this, and it won't delete the file.

    Anyone?

    Are you rooted? And do you have a root capable file manager e.g. root browser

    Since the last two posts were a month apart, I guess it's okay to bump it another month later.

    To delete boot animations and camera clicks you need to remount /system as RW. I'm a fan of Root Toolbox Pro for that (and for USB dual mount) but it can be done easily at the command line, which is exactly where you have to go anyway to delete the files. Use adb shell or a terminal on the phone.
