    Hello all, just wanted to ask about a startup tone on the desire.

    Is there one? :eek: I love my phone to talk to me when I'm turning it on, kinda kinky that way. But is there a way to set a startup tone that I'm missing.

    I did search, although maybe not too well.

    Yes, and it's located at /system/media/android_audio.mp3. you might be able to replace that stock file with a different one but keep the same filename.

    PS- you'll need adb (from Android SDK) and probably root, I'm already rooted.

    :eek: Right so no easy way of doing it then.

    It would make so much sense if I had a clue what you mean, but my techy-ness is weak :( Thanks but I'm not rooted, wouldn't know where to start or why etc Thanks for getting back to me though mate. ;)

    Yeah it's not going to be easy to modify it, it's read-only by default but techies can make it writable but with some risks. I use silent boot as I can't stand the bootup sound.

    It's a bit (lot) cheesey but I wanted the darth vader sound clip "What is thy bidding, my master?" when the phone starts up.

    Hey I said it was cheesey :D

    Thanks anyway fella ;)




    (damn my eyes for not being techy )
