    Same question for me -- plus I'd like to remove the "Droid" sound. Is this not possible now? (for unrooted phones)

    to remove you have to plug your phone into your computer and use the command prompt (cmd). if you are rooted you can just use root explorer and delete, move or remove it.

    I'm still not having any luck changing my boot animation . . . I don't have write permissions to /system/customize/resource because I am not rooted.
    I've tried a few things last night & this morning with absolutely no sucess. . . .
    Has anyone figured this out yet?

    I have the same problem. Unfortunately, you have to be rooted in order to change the boot animation. Why VZW did this I don't know and I don't like it.

    Thanks for the reply . . . is this a "fact" or simply the best assumption to date?
