    Boot-up Sound on DROID X...info in build.prop

    So I was looking at the system dump for the DROID X and came across something that tells the phone to do something with the boot-up sound.

    Can anybody else figure out what is needed to do this with our Droids?


    Source:
    /system/build.prop DROID X



    # BEGIN Motorola, a22976, 12-Mar-2010, IKSHADOW-1784, Power Up Tone
    # Motorola, a22976, 12-Apr-2010, IKSHADOW-3298, Remove temporary power up tone
    # BEGIN Motorola, wbdq68, 21-May-2010, IKSHADOW-3372, Turn ON Power Up Tone
    # Motorola, a22976, 26-May-2010, IKSHADOW-6164, Remove power up tone to keep the same as Droid
    #persist.mot.powerup.tone=/system/media/bootup.ogg
    # END IKSHADOW-3372
    # END IKSHADOW-1784

    here is what i found so far.

    # BEGIN Motorola, a22976, 12-Mar-2010, IKSHADOW-1784, Power Up Tone
    # Motorola, a22976, 12-Apr-2010, IKSHADOW-3298, Remove temporary power up tone
    # BEGIN Motorola, wbdq68, 21-May-2010, IKSHADOW-3372, Turn ON Power Up Tone
    # Motorola, a22976, 26-May-2010, IKSHADOW-6164, Remove power up tone to keep the same as Droid
    #persist.mot.powerup.tone=/system/media/bootup.ogg
    # END IKSHADOW-3372
    # END IKSHADOW-1784




    Remove the # on #persist.mot.powerup.tone=/system/media/bootup.ogg

    and you can change it to file dir...just change the file type to .ogg or .mp3

    The problem with the X build.prop is that it does not enable stagefright at boot:

    media.stagefright.enable-player=false
    media.stagefright.enable-meta=false
    media.stagefright.enable-scan=false
    media.stagefright.enable-http=false

    The Droid build.prop enables stagefright:

    media.stagefright.enable-player=true
    media.stagefright.enable-meta=true
    media.stagefright.enable-scan=true
    media.stagefright.enable-http=true

    but the Droid does not contain the part that was found in the X build.prop:

    # BEGIN Motorola, a22976, 12-Mar-2010, IKSHADOW-1784, Power Up Tone
    # Motorola, a22976, 12-Apr-2010, IKSHADOW-3298, Remove temporary power up tone
    # BEGIN Motorola, wbdq68, 21-May-2010, IKSHADOW-3372, Turn ON Power Up Tone
    # Motorola, a22976, 26-May-2010, IKSHADOW-6164, Remove power up tone to keep the same as Droid
    #persist.mot.powerup.tone=/system/media/bootup.ogg
    # END IKSHADOW-3372
    # END IKSHADOW-1784

    I've been looking into this as well (since the R2D2 boot animation leaked) and have found no way yet to get the droid to access the boot sound. The bootanimation.zip tells the phone to call for a file (d2_r2d2_pu.ogg) and it says its supposed to be in /system/media. I put the file there and still get no sound.

    Here's what the desc.txt says in bootanimation.zip:

    # 480 wide, 854 high, 15 frames a second

    480 854 15
    # p means we're defining a part
    # first number is repeat count, 0 means infinite
    # second number is delay in frames before performing the next part
    # so if you are playing 15 frames a second 15 would be... one second
    # string defines the directory to load files from
    # files will be loaded in order but names don't matter

    # s defines a sound for a part
    # sounds will be loaded from /data/local
    # oggs with loop points will loop automatically
    # only one sound will play at a time
    # timing is driven by the part, not the sounds
    # if you want no sound, declare 'none'

    # stars for 30 frames
    p 1 30 part0
    s none
    # R2D2 rises
    p 1 0 part1
    s none
    # Looping R2D2
    p 0 0 part2
    s d2_r2d2_pu.ogg
    # must have newline after each part


    I'm sure there's something we're missing (other than the X and D2 have different hardware and software builds which may not allow us to utilize sound upon boot).

    I'm looking for the "thing" we're missing, but just not finding. Anyone else find something?

    # END IKSHADOW-1784
    So I cut this code from the Droid X build.prop and inserted it into the Droids build.prop and no sound. I did make sure the sound was in the proper folder... anyone with some ideas? Am I going the wrong way???

    So...

    I was trying to figure out what's going on with the code in the build.prop and noticed that the line:

    # Motorola, a22976, 26-May-2010, IKSHADOW-6164, Remove power up tone to keep the same as Droid

    Does not have a closing comment. I'd guess that means it's still an active script or something, but haven't found where the IKSHADOW-6164 script or whatever is.

    Has anyone run across that while doing some mods?

    Comments in scripts like that are generally line-based. What I mean by that is that any line that starts with a # is a comment, and there is no closing tag needed. That whole line is the comment. IKSHADOW-6164 is probably an internal name for a software release version or something.
    Cool CM Tricks
    custom_backup_list.txt - make a list of files in /system that will survive a nightly install (ringtones, notifications, system apps, wallpapers, whatever)
    in Terminal Emulator, set this as your shell command: "/system/xbin/su -c /system/xbin/bash". You get all the features of bash, root access, and you can still use the initial command field for whatever you want (default is adding /data/local/bin to your path)

    I agree, but I can't find a reference to the sound or to the software build... anyone?

    Big fan of your work

    Here is a link that you might find that works for you. Im currently using cm6.0 -- keep jumping between this and cvpcs, however I'm fairly certain the method would work for both ROMs:

    I'm on the same boat. I love this boot up animation on my Droid X froyo 2.2 rooted but cannot get the sound to work. Have done the exact same steps but there has to be something we're missing.

    I have even copied the d2_r2d2_pu.ogg file into the /data/local folder and still nothing. Anyone willing to give us a hand? It would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
