Hey Absolute, there's no specificity on the OG Droid in that post. Will the .zip and flash even work for our devices?

Download this file:   http://db.tt/pCuf1Wc

1. Place bootsnd.sh on root of SD Card
2. Use Root Explorer to set /system to R/W (system, data, etc.)
3. Start Terminal Emulator
4. Type su enter
5. Type cd /sdcard enter
6. Type sh bootsnd.sh enter
7. Rename your sound of choice to android_audio.mp3 and place in /system/media
8. Reboot

I can confirm this worked on my Droid running CM7.0.3 and CM6.1.2. I've found it's best to keep the boot sound under 5 seconds to play the entire mp3.

Also, don't enter any of the Terminal Emulator commands more than once or you'll
have to reflash your ROM.

The Sega boot animation with sound is pretty awesome. Here's a download link (I didn't make this) if anyone wants it: http://db.tt/WIi8kK1

Sorry, I should've said in last post, I'm not taking credit for this. I found the original link:  http://www.droidforu...dio-droid1.html

Also, not sure how many people know this (I just found out a couple weeks ago), but if you go in /system/media and delete the bootanimation.zip, a nice black boot animation with "android" in silver replaces it (on the Droid anyway).

Nice tut WarDroid! Quick side-note for everyone. As Root Explorer costs money and I know not everyone can afford paid applications, the command to make /system editable is (in-terminal after having already typed "su" and then return) "mount -o remount /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system" (without quotes, of course).

[EDIT]
Also, when you're done editing the system partition you should remount it to read-only, "mount -o ro,remount /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system" (without quotes, again). And, if you're using Prime's Deprimed (Test) Kernel, then instead of these long commands, you can just use the commands "sysrw" and "sysro" without quotes.
[/EDIT]

All the best,

-HG

haha, all it does is write all the parts from my second link above into the proper files for you :P
Can't believe it took someone 3 months to put that stuff we talked about in that thread into a simple script file :P
I hadn't even thought about it since those couple nights we were figuring it out and messing around with it in #koush.

yea, I forgot where the loops are but it checks /sdcard/media then /system/media then the included default until one is found.

LOL, I searched for something like this for a good 6 months, I didn't make any of this stuff, just sharing what I found.

Sorry about the bump;

I just did as instructed and seems that file does work and now I got boot sound. Now, however, bootanimation fails.

Any idea what went wrong?

p.s. boot animation worked prior to flashing.

p.p.s. nevermind. Forgot I changed boot animation. it works fine now.
