    I don't think you can do this; you can change the boot animation but it's an image file (or a series of images) so there is no sound.

    I think it's hardware related. Do you mean a sound when you turn it on (like a macintosh computer) or when it's ready to use (like Windows or Ubuntu?)

    I personally haven't turned my phone off in around 1 month now.

    I don't think it is needed.

    Maybe this works -

    Weird request.

    Go into system/sounds/ and create a folder called poweron and in that folder place your sound file that you want for startup and name it PowerOn.mp3
